Five Ways To Bring Autumn Into Your Home

autumn decor

We love Autumn, it’s a beautiful time of year.  The colours are stunning, there are lots of treasures to find (think shiny conkers and acorns) and leaves to throw in the air likes nature’s confetti.

However, it is getting cooler and we’re definitely spending a bit more time indoors, particularly when we have colds and are feeling under the weather.  As we are spending more time indoors it’s nice to bring the outdoors inside, to remind of us of the joy of nature.

Here are five ways to bring autumn inside your home:

  • Create a nature table or tray for your children.  Bring in the treasures you find on your walks, from autumn leaves, to conkers, cones and acorns.

  • Make felt acorns to glue inside acorn cups and then string them up for decoration.
  • Open the windows once a day, even sash windows can easily be opened to let the autumn air circulate inside the house

  • Keep stacks of cosy blankets (homemade crochet or knitted blankets are my favourite) in baskets beside the sofa in the living room for that cosy autumn feeling.

  • Decorate tables, nooks and window ledges with squashes, mini pumpkins and gourds.  They are very autumnal and cheap for decorative purposes.

    Ooh these are lovely ideas. I keep thinking I should print off an autumnal picture on canvas and put it up at this time of year, it’s great to embrace autumn, it’s such a pretty season and it goes too quickly.

    I really need to decorate our kitchen dresser like an autumn table for the kids, it’s practically winter out there now though!

    We love autumn here. Those sash windows are stunning! Also, what a great idea to put treasures on a tray. Ours usually end up in my coat pockets, on the mantle piece and generally scattered all over the house!
