It’s officially autumn, and to us, that means cosying up with a good book, comforting food, and curling up in front of the fire. Here are some ideas to get you started on changing your home for winter.
Now that you’re swapping your summer colours for muted oranges and earthy textures, it’s a good time to get stocked up on good wood for the winter ahead. Not only does this save you the bother of having to head outside continuously when refuelling your wood burner, but it also adds a natural touch to your autumn interior.
Opulent colours such as dark greens, blues and greys complement an autumnal theme by embracing the deeper tones that we see around this time of year. Paired with a traditional wood burning stove, all that’s required is a hot chocolate for ultimate relaxation!
Autumn’s the time for brisk walks in the countryside. Update a dull and plain hallway with an electric stove – the perfect way to warm cold hands and toes. An electric stove also only requires connection to the mains via an ordinary plug socket, meaning that you can move it into a different room if required.
A more neutral interior lends itself to making the most of the options available for your fireplace. Choose a bold frame on an inset gas fire to bring a strong focus on the most cosy feature in your room.
