Cosy up your home for Autumn
Autumn is the season of colour, of dramatic changes to our surroundings as the mornings turn frosty, leaves fade to brown and eventually are shed. There is something so comforting about hunkering down for the new season, lighting your first fire, making your first proper hot chocolate (whipped cream atop mandatory!) and creating the perfect retreat from the harshening weather.
In Scandinavia, it’s the time to take down the summer curtains and replace with heavier drapes, bringing out the throws, woollen cushions and sheepskins to help create that wonderful atmosphere of ‘hygge’ that the region is so known for. And of course, it’s our duty at Nordic House to bring you all the wonderful accessories you need to help you bring a little of this magic to your own home!
I absolutely love seasonal decorating – creating displays themed around the time of year is a great way of bringing a little of the outdoors inside, even when the weather is inclement!
Now that I’ve thoroughly convinced you all that autumn is indeed beautiful, let me show you a few gorgeous pieces from our shop that are just perfect for making your home cosy this season!
What better way to keep the chills at bay than by layering your interior with our amazing goatskin rugs… This easy-going natural shade will suit any interior. Layer them on floors or furniture to create the ultimate warming cocoon.
Utterly lovely, thoroughly Scandi and as warm and cosy as they come, this circular natural wool rug is a real favourite here at Nordic House HQ. In a gorgeous shade of cream and decoratively woven with true craftsmanship, this is a winner when it comes to creating layers of warmth and texture as the nights draw in.
And while we’re talking knits… I just love this wonderfully textured cable knit cushion in a soft Old White. It even has a matching throw…
Just perfect for snuggling under on a cool autumnal evening!
And continuing the subject of throws, these quilted velvet beauties are new for AW14. Indulgent, opulent, and ridiculously comfortable, they are perfect when layered with natural linens and warm woollens to make your bed wonderfully cocooning. Available in Mocca, Anthracite and Petrol Blue – each of which is stitched like the finest heirloom in rich velvet with a simple pinstripe cotton backing.
Finally, last but not least… it wouldn’t be a Nordic House blog post without some mention of candlelight! Home is where the heart is, so light a host of these sweet little house-shaped candles and feel the love! The wick looks like a chimney on top of each pure white house, and there’s the choice of two sizes so that you can light up your life with some fabulous displays.
When the nights draw in, I think it’s always fair to treat yourself to a few home comforts! Do take a look at our new collection for AW – there are many more delights to be discovered and cherished on our website!
