Cosy up for Autumn

With Halloween upon us and Guy Fawkes not far away, our minds turn to cosy nights in by the fire. However, to feel truly comfy and warm we need the perfect accessory; a blanket to snuggle under. As well as keeping us warm, a plush blanket or thick woollen throw draped over the arm of a sofa or the end of a bed can also add a splash of colour and texture as well as soften a room.

Bronte by Moon offers a stunning range of beautifully woven throws in Merino Lambswool, Shetland Pure New Wool, and luxury Alpaca & Mohair. They have colours and designs to suit all tastes including spots, stripes, traditional check, herringbone and even stars or fair isle if you’re looking for something more festive. Their huge variety of colours also means that you can ensure that your beautiful blanket complements your decor.

Other ways to instantly cosy up your home ready for the colder months are scatter cushions. Casually place them on sofas, beds, chairs and even large windowsills. Stone and wooden floors can also sometimes feel a bit stark but add a large rug for a more intimate feel and cosy toes, whilst maintaining the lovely feature of the floors.

Something as simple as changing your light bulbs can instantly make a room feel warmer.  Replace any cool, white lights with warm yellow bulbs or even invest in some fairy lights and drape them over a fireplace, or mirror, or around a doorframe. You could even cluster them in a glass bowl or vase to create a light feature.

Finally accessorise your home to effectively add homeliness to a space. Fill beautiful vases with faux flowers or invest in a green non-flowering plant for the winter to consistently add colour. Cluster photos and candles on sideboards and tables for a personal touch.

To mark the beginning of Autumn and cosy nights in, we’re giving away one of our beautiful blankets for you to snuggle under.
