I love this time and year and look forward to the cosy nights tucked up indoors watching Christmas movies with my little clan. I also love to have a deep clean throughout the house ready for when the tree and decorations go up. While I do this I like to add a few seasonal items to the rooms and this is what I generally do.
Oversized Chunky Blankets
I love comforts and especially at this time of year when it’s so cold out. I have a small ottoman in the lounge where I keep a stash of blankets and fleeces so everyone can help themselves to something snuggly. We have quite a few that we use to cover ourselves when watching TV. I really really want one of these oversized chunky blankets in my life and how cosy does this look? I think I may have to make myself one!

I have recently learned to crochet and one of my recent makes is this colourful autumnal bunting. It sits pretty above the stove in our kitchen. It’s fun to make, cheerful and brightens up the room. You could, of course, buy some autumnal decorations if you are not so keen on making them yourself.
Another way to bring autumn into the home is create a seasonal table setting. I usually have my chickens’ tablecloth on throughout the year to go in with my countryside theme, but I like to have a change with the seasons. I now have a green one with polka dots to add a little colour. I also bought some pretty LED maple leaf lights that look really cosy come the evening.
Fresh flowers instantly make a room feel homely just like this deluxe autumn bouquet from Bloom Magic. originally focused in Ireland, Bloom Magic are now offering their services in the UK. They have so many beautiful flower arrangements to choose from and for all occasions.
Candles really are the best way to make a room look cosy and inviting in my opinion. I have them burning throughout the year! You can pick up some lovely autumnal/winter fragrances such as sugared cinnamon, spiced berry, mulberry, spruce and many more.
