This year I took a sumer holiday right at the end of August. I left the UK in a blaze of summer heat and arrived back one week later straight into autumn! But as much as I love the long, lazy summer months – and we have had a fantastic summer this year – I always love the mellow autumn season.
The crisp mornings, the rich, hazy scent of woodsmoke and the chance to snuggle up at home under rich layers of blankets in front of a cosy fire are just a few of the my favourite things about the cooler months.
My home style doesn’t change drastically from summer to winter. I love a crisp, white backdrop in the summer and in the winter I just heap up the layers and textures whilst still keping a fresh palette of white and natural tones.
But if you want a masterclass in decorating with whites this autumn and winter, look no further than these gorgeous new season images from Bedeck.
They key to making a white bedroom feel cosy rather than stark is to build up layers and textures to create a cosy haven.
Heap up your bed with rich throws in tactile velvets, silks and faux fur and ensure your feet stay toasty warm with rich wool carpet or a thick tufted rug underfoot. Keep a connection with the outside world through the inclusion of natural materials and winter plants.
The perfect mix of textures – snuggly soft faux fur, crisp waffle bedding and a chunky knit blanket to throw over the foot of the bed.
Who wouldn’t want a wood burning stove in their bedroom on those frosty winter mornings? A girl can dream…
The crisp waffle throw, sersucker bedlinen and embroidered pillows all add a visual interest and tactile element to this tranquil scheme.
And if you want to add a little bit of winter glamour to your bedroom as autumn turns into winter and we get nearer to (whisper it) Christmas, just add some glittering metallics such as this silver vase and bedside table to add some festive sparkle.
