Here at Primrose & Plum we love the change of seasons and think Autumn has to be our favourite time of year. With the evenings drawing in, the leaves changing colour and the temperatures falling, it’s the perfect time to make your home really cosy.
Candleware comes into its own this season along with soft lighting and of course sparkling fairy lights. Candlelight is perfect for making a home feel cosy – there’s nothing like the gentle flickering of a flame in a pretty glass tealight holder or lantern to create a welcoming atmosphere. Silver jewelled tealights, elegant candlesticks and gorgeous iridescent storm lanterns all form part of our stunning new Candleware collection.
Subtle lighting is much more homely than harsh overhead lights, so as the days start getting shorter try using multiple layers of lighting to make your room feel inviting. Use table lamps with lots of character such as our Large Textured Glass Table Lamp or Antique Silver Round Table Lamp to create pools of light around a room, and candlelight to accent key areas with a warm glow. If you do prefer to use a pendant lamp, soften it with our Goose Feather Pendant Lampshade – guaranteed to melt the iciest autumn or winter night and a sure way of adding some wow factor to your home.
Although Christmas isn’t far away, we’ve never been a believer that fairy lights are only for the festive season. Sparkling fairy lights make the perfect decorative touch to a mirror, mantelpiece or window sill and with such a variety of designs available these days we really are spoilt for choice. Particular favourites of ours are our pretty Crystal Ball Fairy Lights and our new Silver Moroccan Glass Lantern Fairy Lights which truly sparkle and shine.
Autumn really is the best time to start getting your home looking it’s best. This doesn’t have to mean redecorating every room, as just adding a few simple touches is all it takes to turn your home into a comfy nest that you and your family will adore spending time in. Try draping a soft knitted throw across a sofa or the end of your bed or layer up several chunky throws and blankets with lots of plush cushions to stay snug – velvet bedspreads and cushions are perfect for this time of year.
Our Amber Glass Tumblers are wonderful to give your table some extra autumn glow, or sprinkle a few touches of bronze, silver and gold around for a feeling of opulence – our Silver Apothecary Storage Jars are perfectly in tune with the season, as are our Decorative Gold Hanging Hearts and pretty Bronze Tealight Holders.
Storage baskets are great for organising messy areas, whether it’s somewhere to store logs as the winter nights start drawing closer or simply to organise your paperwork, kid’s toys, shoes or other bits and bobs. Our desk tidy, wire baskets and willow storage baskets are practical yet stylish and great to help manage the clutter.
Adding a new piece of furniture is also a great way of transforming a room. Our Linen Button Back Armchairs are beautiful and ideal for a bedroom or as a stylish addition to your lounge – the additional seating at Christmas will also be very welcome! Decorative wall mirrors are an easy way to instantly transform a dull wall. Use large wall mirrors to create a dramatic focal point in the living room, over a mantelpiece or to lift a dark hallway. A beautiful free standing or dressing mirror will also make an attractive and very practical addition to any bedroom.
And so on to Christmas, because it really is just around the corner and it’s never too early to be organised. We’ve lots of lovely festive touches that will brighten your home this Christmas – stunning candlesticks and candleholders, beautiful tableware and an eclectic mix of decorations to adorn your home. On our festive wish list are our delightful glass Christmas Tree Storage Jars, our impressive Antique Silver Candle Holders and our elegant Smoke Glass Hurricane Lanterns ….. gorgeous.
And there’s lots of lovely gift ideas too – cufflinks, wallets and washbags for ‘Him’ and pretty silver glass trinkets, perfume bottles and decorative accessories for ‘Her’. Another great present is our ‘All You Need is Love …. And Wine’ Wall Art which makes a stylish yet fun gift for any wine lovers …. or simply as a treat to yourself.
