It's my favourite time of year. I can finally unearth my snuggliest jumpers, cosiest coats and softest scarves. I like dressing for autumn and winter because it suits my sense of style - chunky boots, oversized coats, high neck jumpers, midi dresses, leggings, loafers and every shade of orange imaginable. Even in the summer my wardrobe looks very autumnal.
It's been a while since my last blog post; I've been a very busy bee. I've spent all of September training in a new job, so I haven't had the chance to even think about autumn's arrival. However, heading to the bus station yesterday after my early shift, I cut through a nearby park and was greeted by the most gorgeous orange leaves scattered all over, and it suddenly dawned on me - my favourite season is finally here! Misty mornings, dark evenings, bundling up in big coats, putting on your fluffiest socks, warming your hands round a bowl of soup, picking up conkers, lighting sparklers and putting cinnamon on everything. It's pure magic to me. The first day I step out in a woolly scarf will be a good day.
I came across this beautiful farmhouse while clicking through the House & Garden website - I love it so much I just had to share the photos here. Max Rollitt did a sublime job injecting colour, character and life into this 17th century property. Feast your eyes on the interiors below.
Green is one of the most soothing, versatile and timeless colours in the world (in my humble opinion). I love every shade, from pale sages to moody teals. Green is also one of those colours that works everywhere you put it; I've seen it look great in bathrooms, kitchens, hallways, garden fences, front doors and sheds. It is the colour I suggest when people who haven't the foggiest on decorating ask me what colour they should go with in [insert room here] because it's hard to mess up with green and it's easy to style.
