The day Summer says its goodbyes, I am in autumnnal mode. My wardrobe changes, to make room for cosy jumpers and velvet dresses, and my home becomes a cinnamon-scented, halloween treasure trove. How sun worshipers feel about summer, is how I feel about the crisp mornings and early sunsets of autumn.
With the darker mornings, sometimes you need little pick me ups, whether that’s positive quote prints or message boards you can personalise. I love this letter board, and it would look great in the kitchen or even on your desk at work! ‘Seeing wonderful things, hearing beautiful music’ is such a good quote because it’s a reminder on those low days that it’s the simple things in life that make us happy.
Green calms us, it is the colour of balance – which is why many feel serenity in a forest, garden or even staring out of the car window when passing fields. This is just one reason why plants scattered around your house can have a positive effect on how you feel. Plants can also improve air quality and are natural humidifiers, so are great to have around the house during colder months. Terrariums like this pyramid glass one from MyGift are great for when you want to incorporate your plant into more of a display feature or table decoration.
Candles and throws are a given in the colder months, and I love a simple herringbone, as it carries you straight through to spring home decor. Pillar candles fulfill my witchy dreams and these from Frontgate are drip-free so no carpet and wax nightmares! Another witchy dream come true is the Gypsy Dreams Happy Halloween Wall Hanging Banner! I was getting sick of crappy plastic and paper decorations targeted to kids parties. Why can’t we have halloween decorations for an adult home? So I created this banner and I don’t care that Halloween is 1 day of the year, I will have this banner up for a whole month. No regrets.
