Autumn Home Additions

I always find myself wanting to switch things around in the home come autumn, when creating a cosy ‘hygge’ environment filled with candles and low lighting is all I can think about. I’m the stay at home and hibernate kind of person (with one or two fun Christmas outings added into the diary to force me out).

Styling artwork in a rustic space…
