I think we can all agree that we bloody love a cosy home. This time of year calls for all of the autumnal vibes – whether you decorate for the season or not. I’m in the latter camp and don’t go all out but I do make a couple of cosy additions to make my home my favourite place to be.
Cosy candles and homely scents
I put a lot of thought into how my house smells. A lot of thought. Having a dog means I worry about our sofa smelling a bit doggy, which I really hope it doesn’t so keeping the lounge clean and fresh is one thing, but making it smell nice is a whole other ball game.
I love a reed diffuser and have them in the kitchen, downstairs loo and the living room. And whilst I would love to have The White Company and Jo Malone fragrances all over the house, I tend to go for the brands that ate a bit more purse friendly.
B&M have a range that’s a dupe for Marks and Spencer’s fragrances and they smell incredible. I got the Restore diffuser a few months ago and it’s still smelling strong. So impressed.
I also love a range from Next. The city-inspired scents are gorgeous and smell so fresh and light in my kitchen and living room.
When it comes to candles, I switch them up every few months. I have a Home Bargains crackling candle on the coffee table at the moment which I’m loving and I like how the wooden lid looks against the black metal table. Very industrial vibes.
Flowers – real, dried and artificial
I have dried letter eucalyptus in my lounge and I love it. The pops of green feel so seasonal again our black furniture.
