The clocks are going back shortly and the nights are closing in so that can only mean one thing. Yep, it’s time to settle in for the long hibernation ahead.
I’m a sucker for this time of year. I love the changing colours of the landscape and walking the dog in the countryside with the feel of crisp fallen leaves underfoot. Ok I’m not such a fan of having to wash him when we get home because he’s managed to bring half of the countryside home on his paws and coat. But hey, it’s a small sacrifice.
I also love to cosy up the house at this time of year. Sitting snuggled up on the sofa on a cold dark evening with cushions and a throw, candlelights flickering and a blazing fire and I’m one happy little camper.
Decorating your home for Autumn needn’t cost the earth. In fact you don’t even need to grab the paint brush or rush out investing in statement pieces. All you need are a few well chosen accessories and a little help from Mother Nature.
Read on for my top tips in bringing the golden glow of Autumn to your home decor.

Bring nature inside by gathering some leaves, twigs and berries from the garden and arrange in pretty displays.
I created this centrepiece using some berries from the garden and placed on a tray with some mason jars, candlesticks and some potpourri. Total cost ZERO!! Hat tip to Vidya over at Whats Ur Home Story for this idea. However the berries are already looking a bit sad so I’m going to switch them with some dried leaf branches.

I love this elegant display from Elegant Nest (see what I did there 🙂 ) This would look great on a mantlepiece or a console table.
