Let's get cosy for autumn
October has arrived and it definitely feels like autumn has set in. The nights are getting darker, the duvets are getting thicker and the thermostats may have crept up. So, how do we get our homes ready for the cosy months ahead? I've pulled together some of my favourite products that will give your house instant warmth that feels like a hygge hug.
Oh hello, warm glow
Add a warming and homely feel to any room with the right kind of lighting. My Sphery, byKirsty light shades are designed to create beautiful shadows around any room. The right lightbulb is important, Plumen bulbs give off a warm, traditional glow, and add another level of cosy to any room.
As the nights draw in, I like to stock up on candles. We've got pairs of stubby, hand-dipped candles made from English bee's wax. They give off a delicious honey smell that will have you rushing to get them lit as soon as you get in.
Warm mitts in traditional knits
Save on those heating bills and invest a blanket that will never go out of style. Melin Tregwynt has been weaving intricate patterns from pure lambswool since the 1950's. I love to stock their reversible throws and cushions, being able to flip them over for a new colour-combo gives your room an instant refresh whenever you fancy one
Stock up your reading corner
So, you've got a warm glow and your cosy blanket, what next? Pick up a magazine and rewind in your favourite reading spot. Our selection of independently printed magazines will transport you to faraway places, introduce you to nourishing recipes and uplift you with inspirational stories about some pretty amazing people.
4. Plumen Bulb
The PLUMEN works like any other high quality low energy bulb – saving you 80% on your energy bills and lasting 8 times longer than a standard incandescent bulb.
