Now that we’ve all turned the calendar page to September, it’s time to prepare your home for autumn and the chill that comes with it. They say autumn begins when the first leaf turns that magnificent orange colour, but some feel it does not begin until October, which has led to the question, “When does autumn begin?” The official first day of autumn in the UK this year is September 23rd, 2022, giving us just enough time to start preparing our homes for when the nights get darker sooner.
Although some people are still in the summer mood, autumn is on its way. Prepare for the cold nights by decorating your home in autumnal colours to preserve the cosiness inside. As we say goodbye to BBQs and sunbathing, we have produced a list of some key items that we believe are essential when contemplating what you may include in your home accessories, covering everything from blankets to coasters and even board games to play when you want to have a cosy night in.
1. Candles and Fragrances
Many people comment on the scents of autumn and winter when they talk about the seasons. Thanks to Starbucks, pumpkin spice is the most common aroma that many people associate with autumn, with cinnamon and ginger spice coming in a close second. These smells often fill you with warmth and make you want to spend the entire day curled up on the sofa with a cup of hot chocolate.
Autumnal candles, especially amber candles that fit the fall dress code, are a great way to get into the spirit of the season. Alternatively, utilise an aroma diffuser to enjoy any of your favourite autumn aromas while complimenting the snug ambience with its design and keeping you nice and toasty without the worry of remembering to blow it out.
