So, grab a mug of something warm, take a seat and 10 minutes to come with us…

All Rooms: Sheepskin Rugs.

There is possibly nothing better than tip-toeing across a cool floor to find your feet suddenly swept up in the embrace of a soft and warm sheepskin rug!

We love these beautiful hand finished rugs by cox & cox, all made from 100% natural long-haired sheepskin.

Versatile and stylish, they offer sumptuous decorative details for the back of your sofa, on top of a bench or bedside your bed.

Living Room Or Bedrooms: Chunky Knit Throws

Everyone loves a cosy throw for the sofa when snuggling up on a Sunday afternoon, or after a long day at work! For the ultimate in homely hygge effect, we recommend an extra chunky knit throw. Used for decorative or practical purposes to keep warm, you simply can’t beat this for a super stylish touch to your autumn home decor.

Available to purchase at nordic house

With so many options available, and at various price points, there is the perfect chunky knit blanket out there for everyone! We love this soft dusky pink blanket from bonways (shown above) and adore the soft grey blanket from nordic house (shown left).

Dining Rooms: Autumn Table Decor

For the perfect dining table try adding a few touches of autumn fare such as mini pumpkins. For a splash of colour and fun use real mini pumpkins, or try these perfect little creations from farmhouse pottery. Each one is hand made by artisan designers, the perfect way to bring the patch to your table this autumn season.

Sideboards & Tables: Autumn Branches

If you want to keep things chic and natural with a subtle nod to the autumn season, we love this shot from Victoria Hagan interiors. Using a selection of autumn twigs & foliage in a vase to add height and interest to a space is a simple yet stylish trick. Setting these against a clean, crisp background will really help make your display pop!
