This week Team Zoella have picked out the top tier cosy additions we'll be adding to our homes in the coming weeks, from Halloween homages, feel-good Fall furnishings to full-blown Christmas cosiness.
A spiced pumpkin candle, hot bubble bath, a Netflix night under a fluffy blanket = BLISS
For those loyal and committed homebodies out there, an autumn season at indoors is 10/10 on the list of things you love about the newfound crisp chill in the air. A spiced pumpkin candle, hot bubble bath, a Netflix night under a fluffy blanket = BLISS. But perhaps after seven months spent mostly at home, you’re feeling a little cabin fever-y, and who could blame you! Our homes are our sanctuary, and in turbulent times like these, making it feel warm, welcoming and somewhere you can thrive in is so important.
This week Team Zoella have picked out the top tier cosy additions we’ll be adding to our homes in the coming weeks, from Halloween homages, feel-good Fall furnishings to full-blown Christmas cosiness. Add some warmth to your space with a new rug or blankets, or see how early you can get away with casual fairy lights and Xmas candles before your s/o or housemate goes full-on Scrooge at you.
The power of mood lighting mulled wine and pyjamas on the radiator is not one to be questioned. All aboard the train of festive fun, we’re ready for you.
I love this time of year for cosy home buys and I largely look for soft furnishings like cushions, rugs, table cloths, tea towels and throws! This fleece throw from M&S is a firm autumn/winter staple for me and this year they’ve brought it back with a star design! It’s the softest thing you’ll ever snuggle up in. I also thought a bath try would be the ultimate cosy accessory for all the autumn bubble baths, alongside a lovely apple spiced candle that smells incredible!
My husband and I are about 2-3 months away from moving into our home that we’ve been working on for the last two years, excitement levels are high. It’s finally got to the moment of buying some homey interiors bits and seeing as we are hopefully moving in at the most festive time of year I’ve even invested in a good quality faux Christmas tree when I noticed there was a sale on (are we allowed to say the C-word yet?!) We are going for a very neutral/organic colour pallet but I want to make sure we have some warm touches so that it feels like home from day one. I’m thinking candles, rugs, cushions and blankets!
I have quite literally bypassed Halloween altogether and just gone into full-on Christmas mode as I really love this time of the year and can’t wait for the festivities after a hard year. I purchased some tree print bedding from one of our recent blogposts and yes I have already put it on my bed… Never ever too early! I love a good faux fur blanket at Christmas and some festive decorative cushions, it gives me all the cosy feels. You also can’t beat a festive scent around the home and I just love the diffusers from The White Company. I also recently bought some candles from Cedar and they are divine!
I don’t really tend to decorate my house for fall/Halloween other than the obligatory pumpkin, so I’ve decided to pick some early festive bits. I think a mixture of chic minimal bits like the H&M wreath, trees and bells mixed with slightly more novelty finds like the M&S fleece blanket and Urban doormat makes for the best kind of Christmas decor! It might be early for most but I actually found a lot of Christmas product was sold out by the time I wanted to order it last year, so snap it up now and thank me later!
Truth be told, I buy more homeware than clothes these days so I’ll need to exercise some self-control on this one! I can’t fault Zara Home when it comes to those timeless trans-seasonal pieces that work in the home all year round. Also, it’s not strictly homeware but I love using books to decorate little corners. The clothbound classics from Waterstones instantly make an otherwise empty nook looked loved and lived in. I’m obsessed!
It’s beginning to feel a lot like autumn (sung in the tune of It’s Beginning to Look A Lot Like Christmas). I’m normally a summer lover through and through but there’s something about a cosy, cold night that I can’t get enough of this year. I’m going all out to make my flat a sanctuary and as calm and soothing as possible after a difficult year, so warm colours, comforting soft furnishing and relaxing scents are top priority. I love the idea of adding some dried flowers as fresh ones always brighten up my space but can get expensive after a while. Autumn decor is where it’s at people!
