Autumn is always a welcome arrival for me. The leaves change colour, the light turns golden and there's a crispness in the air that I simply adore. It is hands down my favourite season, and along with the winter wardrobe and black boots comes out the autumnal candles, fleecy throws and hot chocolates.

I love making the little changes in my home to reflect the seasons and wanted to share a few of my favourite touches from around the house.

I also like to change up my cushions with the different seasons. Its one of the easiest ways to switch up the vibe in your front room/bedroom. Spring and Summer are all about pretty pastels and florals - Autumn and Winter are all about the deep reds and greys. I love anything with deer/stags on (I have an amazing Stag's head in the front room I bought last year in Matalan) and the cushion below is no exception.

I finally cleared off my dressing table and added some really old star fairy lights from Ikea around the mirror which look super pretty. I also finally found the perfect stool from Out There Interiors* It goes perfectly with my dressing table, was really easy to assemble and feels really sturdy. Out There interiors have some really beautiful and unique pieces and are worth checking out if you're looking for something different for your home.

One of my absolute favourite little changes is autumnal bedding. I love Primark's winter bedding and have my eye on a set similar to the christmas bedding I got from there last year. 
When I saw this bedding in Next though I knew I had to have it. I'm loving tartan at the moment, so much so I even bought the matching snuggly throw to go with it. The bedding is so gorgeous and has a cute stipe pattern on the opposite side. I didn't realise when I bought it that you actually get 2 duvet sets with slightly different patterns which was a bonus!

Last but not least I've whipped out my old favourite hot water bottle. Perfect for ensuring maximum toastiness on cold and windy nights.

Do you change your home according to the seasons? As you can see my favourite places for homewares are Primark, Next and Matalan. Where are yours?
