It's getting colder and the leaves are falling. And everyday as we walk out of the door we look at our hats and gloves and think... 'it won't be long till I can wear them'. But as we feel autumnal outside, so we should feel autumnal inside.
I haven't gone crazy in making my room autumnal, but I have changed a few little things that makes my room feel that little bit more cosy.
Let's get started...
A ridiculously simple thing I did was change what was hanging on the back of my bedroom door. I swapped all my summery accessories, for lovely cosy jumpers, scarves and hats. And my favourite autumnal bags.
I haven't gotten rid of the things I have changed, But the new ones fit better with an Autumn theme. Something I love is the bird cage. It was £2.49 from The Range. I've used a mini Yankee Candle (Pear Orchard) for £1.80, and free chestnuts! It makes me feel all warm and cosy.
I wanted to pick some pine-cones myself, but there seems to be a pine-cone shortage in my area! So if you have a Wilkinsons near you they have the cutest autumnal/Christmas things. I nearly bought it all. But there was a box of about 13 pine-cones for £3. Just hang them on a piece of string. And you can reuse them at Christmas too.
I had some old sheet music that I got at a charity shop for 10p, I used inks, but you could use watercolours and made autumnal leaves. Sew them onto string and there you have leafy bunting.

I love candles and I really think they make all the difference in making everything tranquil.
I got a beautifully festive smelling candle from The Range (big one on the left) for £2.99, and little pine-cone one for £1.80. And with my existing candles I tied robe into a bow around them, and used the rest of the pine-cones.
I got these cute pencils from The Range that are made from real twigs for £1.00. Also you can make super cute leaf curtain ties using just felt. You just need a needle and thread. Sew them all together!
I also changed the picture above my bed. It used to be a more spring/summery picture. Now I've changed it to another page in an old vintage magazine called 'Once Upon A Time'. It's the story of the Sleeping Princess (how apt ;))
I could have gone for a overtly themed duvet cover, but I thought I would go for a plan white one with detailing. That way I can stock up on cosy themed blankets and cushions.
I hope you've enjoyed this post, and that now you feel inspired to get all Autumnal!
