Our top tips to get your home ready for Autumn

From the changing leaves, to the spiky pods and burnished tones of the chestnuts on the ground, from the enticing scents of hot chocolates and mulled wine spices, to woolly jumpers and leather boots, Autumn is a feast for the senses.

The shorter days and colder weather also make home such a wonderful place to come back to, after a long day at the office or braving the chill at the kids’ weekend football matches. Autumn is for cosying up with the family, next to the fireplace, with blankets piled on your sofa and a mug of something lovely to hand. So, what better way to get ready for the new season than by updating your home with pieces from Littlewoods home shop?

The good news is, this doesn’t have to be through huge investments like new sofas or by anything strenuous like painting the walls. You can achieve your cosy oasis with smaller touches, like plush cushions, autumnal decorations like candles or fairy lights, shaggy rugs and chunky throws.

Enjoy an extra-large serving of your favourite tea, hot toddy, cocoa or even soup or porridge in Mason Cash’s gorgeous stoneware Impressions mugs. From the earthy brown tones to the interesting rustic patterns, these are ideally suited to warm your hands on those Autumn nights by the fire with a good book.

We love the idea family film nights, with everyone together in comfort and warmth. Bean bag chairs add a homely, relaxed feel (not to mention extra seating) – kids and teenagers in particular are very keen on the idea of their own individual nest from which to share family time. If your look is country-cosy or Scandi-chic, this wool knitted pod from Kaikoo is a soft and inviting option, or if you’re more into a modern or minimalist look, this luxury liner from Ideal Home is perfect for laidback lounging.

Throughout the lounge and the bedroom, complement your existing décor with cable knit cushions, a chunky knit throw, a shaggy rug, or check woven and lined eyelet curtains to keep out the chill and create a warm comforting space. Available in red, plum or charcoal, they’re perfect with Westary’s coordinating check woven cushions.

Finally, Yankee Candles add a warm glow and tonnes of atmosphere: their Autumn Night Large Jar Candle evokes the spirit of the season with its earthy tones and woodland notes.

However you choose to feather your nest for Autumn, Littlewoods has loads of great ideas for home décor, to please all tastes and budgets. Visit our full Home and Garden shop to get inspired!
