Roaring fires, cuddly throws, flickering candlelight- it’s what autumnal dreams are made of. The clocks going back at the end of October signals the plunge into the cooler months proper; the time when we all want to retreat to the sanctuary of home, get cosy and stay put until spring arrives.
And to make sure our spaces are as snug as possible, we’re embracing an abundance of textures, from supersoft throws, to fluffy cushions and deep pile rugs. A good stock of blankets is a must as the temperatures start to drop; store them neatly in a blanket box or put them on show to add an extra layer of homely style to your space.
Even larger furniture pieces are getting in on the textural trend; overstuffed sofas and chairs covered in thick chenille, woolly boucle and even faux fur are perfect for snuggling up on during those chilly autumnal evenings in front of the fire.
