I’ve spent the majority of the August bank holiday decluttering the house and freshening up the paintwork. I’m so ready for autumn, it’s the time of year I love my house the most. Out come the blankets and masses of tea light holders, rugs and sheepskins…the entire house becomes a giant cocoon to plan Christmas in (yes I just dropped the C word).
Out comes the hessian cushions for added texture and I add 2 or 3 extra lamps that have been packed away since spring, a couple of months without something in a room really does make you appreciate it more.
Once all the larger accessories are styled back in to the room it’s time for the best bit…candles. I have them lit on every last inch of surface.
How do you prep your home for autumn?
