Summer is always full of busy months, so there’s lots of rushing around, and finishing tasks, before our long family holiday away.
I must admit, as much as I love Summer, I do welcome and take comfort from Autumn.
It’s almost as if the shorter days and cooler temperatures are giving me permission to slow down.
To kickstart my slow living, I’ve decided to transform my bedroom into a cosy and inviting space.
My Autumn bedroom will be perfect for weekend lie-ins, breakfasts in bed and lounging in pyjamas all day. I’ve turned to The White Company’s new Autumn bedroom collection to create my desired comfortable, and indulgent bedroom.
As the plan was to stay in bed, getting the bed linen right was key, something soft to cocoon into.
I picked the Symons bed linen in Egyptian cotton sateen,with a very high thread count of 1000, hence it was super soft and luxurious feel. I could have snuggled there in bed all day. I added warmth and texture to the bed linen with a grey chunky knit lambswool bed throw and matching cushions from the Blakeney collection. Can you tell that the patterns on the throw have been inspired by a traditional Winter jumper? For added warmth on Winter nights, you could layer on this faux fur throw and pillows in Fig, also from the White Company. I’ve used it temporarily to cover over a sofa footstool, for a cosy little corner to sit and read.
I’ve selected a lace trim pyjamas set to lounge in. Look at the pretty lace effect at the sleeves. All the ingredients for a perfect weekend in bed have therefore been put in place. This super soft natural velour robe is the perfect ‘stay at home’ house coat, for wandering around the house. I’ve paired the pyjamas with toasty warm cashmere socks. Last but not least, I always like to light a scented candle to create that sense of atmosphere.
This Wild Rhubarb candle, inspired by crisp Autumnal walks, with notes of freesia buds, plum blossoms, juicy red apples and ripe rhubarb, was the perfect finishing touch to an Autumn vibe at home. What do you think of my Autumn bedroom? I’m so pleased with my finds. Off to enjoy some breakfast in bed now in my Autumn bedroom.
Wishing you all a wonderful day.
