Melissa over at ‘Inspired Room’ is hosting a wonderful ‘Fall Nesting’ event this week 2-5th Sept and I thought I’d join in.
Nothing says Autumn to me more than blankets, snuggling and candles! Here in the UK it’s pretty much going to be gray and dull for the next few months, so it’s essential to brighten up your home. I think this is why the Scandinavian look has been so embraced here, light and bright are such a break from dark wintry weather.
Fall nesting is such a good idea, I love preparing for the winter. Paul and Miss L know when it’s coming as I break out the flannel duvet covers, blankets and hot water bottles and clean like mad for winter as we can’t open the windows as much to get fresh air in.
Miss L and I have a favourite blanket which was crochet by my mother in law, it’s huge and we snuggled under it to read and watch TV and it comes out every winter. This winter it will be invaluable as utilities have shot up in price in the UK so I suspect we’ll be snuggling under it a lot!
Here is our winter sideboard.
Unfortunately pumpkins won’t be out in the shops here until Mid October, so I’m having to make do with orange roses.
Hydrangeas from my garden.
And a big bowl of apples from the tree.
Tomorrow I’ll be posting my gallery wall….
