After an idyllic summer it’s time to drift into the dusky nights of Autumn, gently preparing ourselves for the colder winter months to come.

I’m not a fashion guru or interior designer, I just like what I like and I hope you like some of the choices I’ve made for this winters collection.

According to the experts, 2018 trends suggest adding pops of dusky pink, grey and mustard yellow into your colour palette. There is also a lot of reference to Nordic home styling and hygge.  If you are wondering what a hygge is, it is a quality of cosiness and comfortable conviviality that engenders a feeling of contentment –  I am sure that is something we all aspire to!

47 Things Dusky Pink Cushions and Grey ThrowsSo with Autumn home style suggestions researched, I thought I’d inspire you to create your own hygge, a “Seductive Sofa” for those winter nights, something perfect to combat the post summer blues, embracing the truly Autumnal trends which are all about hibernating and creating a happy home in which to do so.

How?

Well I wouldn’t for one minute suggest you start planning a complete over haul of your home, the simple  use of textiles, including throws and cushions in greys and dusky pinks is a winter warmer colour scheme which you could use to refresh your home decor.  Dusty pinks, mustard yellow and gooseberry greens, when paired with the soothing, muted effect of grey, accentuates the warmer tones when set against a cooler colour.

For a more dramatic approach you could add in some moody florals and adding textures, such as copper and wicker into the mix will start to pull in natural features which compliment these colours.

Here’s what 47 Things “Seductive Sofa” looks like.  To finish off the hygge and generate that feeling of comfortable conviviality, why not select some fireside scented candles. My favourite for the winter months is new to our range, the Pine candle from the Handmade Candle company, it smells delicious but without “smelly-vision” you’ll just have to trust me on that one!
