Interiors | Moving Your Home from Summer to Winter

Time to talk interiors and as we move from season to season, it is the norm to change your wardrobe over but what about your home? One of the loveliest ways to keep things interesting is to transition your interior from summer to winter.

Cushions

Velvet is huge this AW17 in interiors and on the catwalk, so adding some velvet cushions to your sofas, chairs and beds will add a rich warmth to your room. This cushion is from Marks & Spencer and comes in a range of colours.

Throws For this time of year, it has to be faux fur and this gorgeous throw from Next comes in two colours. How inviting to have this thrown on your sofa? It's just asking to be snuggled up to while watching a movie.

Lighting: This autumn/winter, it's all about coloured, textured glass and marble effect so this light fitting from Matalan ticks all the boxes at a budget:

Candles:

Of course, nothing adds a bit of winter to  your home than a candle and our favourites this time of year include our Peat candle, with it's distinctive warm aroma reminiscent of a peat fire, with essential oils of cedar, amber and vetiver to name just 3. It's an intriguing fragrance that stirs memories and warms the home.

Bring the inside in:

Finally, don't forget to bring some some winter foliage into your home. Ivy and eucalyptus make for beautiful centrepieces. These gorgeous images from Pinterest make it looks so simple:

It can be difficult to adapt to the colder weather and darker nights but at least if your home looks welcoming and cosy, it makes it a pleasure to return to and stay in after facing the outdoors. You can view the whole Field Apothecary candle range on this link and why not check out our sister brand, Field Day also for diffusers, soaps and home fragrance as well as candles.

Until next time
