Chartreuse Velvet Cushion

Cosy up with this Chartreuse Velvet Cushion, £96.

While I lament the passing of summer each year, autumn is without a doubt my favourite season. From spending time at home making soup and watching the leaves fall, to wrapping up in warm coats and scarves, for me it’s the perfect excuse to get cosy.

And adding comforting accessories is the perfect way to get your home ready for autumn.

We have a huge range of throws, cushions and rugs to add some warmth to your home as the days get colder but what I have my eye on is this Chartreuse Velvet Cushion by Primrose & Plum.

In this gorgeous shade of green, this super soft, super cosy cushion will add an elegant touch wherever you use it from your bed to a sofa or chair.

Some of our favourite wall clocks

Treat yourself to a new wall clock from our fantastic collection.

You know when the clocks go back that winter is officially on its way. But while most people don’t like getting up and coming home in the dark, who are we to argue with Mother Nature.

To make it a little more bearable, we’ve put together some of our favourite wall clocks, which are ideal for cheering up a plain wall.

If you’re looking for something stylish, this Origami Ceramic Wall Clock by Naken Interiors with its geometric design is ideal for the office or living room and is available in a selection of colours.

Those with a penchant for everything retro will adore this Gold Sunburst Clock by Alexander and Pearl, which looks far more expensive than its bargaintastic price tag.

And while it might be a little on the pricey side, who can resist this super cute, designer Cucu Home Cuckoo Clock by Red Candy for a little (or big) one’s bedroom?

And it’s also perfect for other rooms in the home from housing towels in the bathroom to jewellery in the bedroom.

Some of our favourite mugs

Get ready for colder days with our eclectic choice of marvellous mugs.

So much for an Indian summer – there’s a distinct chill in the air, which means shorter days and colder nights are on the cards for the next few months.

Whether you prefer coffee, tea, hot chocolate or even a hot toddy to get you through, you’ll be pleased to hear we have some yummy mugs to drink them from.

If you love animals, we have a great collection that’s guaranteed to bring a smile to your face. From super cute to slightly surreal, we love this Deer Mug by Artstar, which is perfect for a morning cuppa.

If you prefer something a little more sophisticated, this Lace Mug by Naken Interiors is just the ticket. It comes in a variety of colours and works equally as well on the breakfast table as it does for an after-supper coffee.

Finally, if you like to be bold with your hot drinks, then this Porcelain Mug by is just for you. Also available in a range of colours, stick to one hue for a cohesive look, or mix and match for something a little more eclectic.

Twist Armchair

Sit back and relax in style with this Twist Armchair, £549.

Of all interiors products, I’ve always been a sucker for chairs – in fact it pains me each time I find a new one because I just don’t have room for any more.

We have a huge selection of armchairs here at Furnish from contemporary to classic and simple to quirky, so there really is something for everyone and every room.

One design that has just made it to the top of my wish list is this Twist Armchair by made.com.

Available in three striking colours, I love this Teal version. Generous, with a definite nod to retro styling, it features a deep wingback and angled legs.

Ideal for both the living room and bedroom (if you’re lucky enough to have the space), this chair is perfect for curling up in with a good book or simply sitting back and relaxing after a hard day at work.

Citrine Side Table

Add a subtle pop of colour with this Citrine Side Table, £325.

Despite being a fan of neutrals I adore the odd pop of colour, and after years of vowing never to have colourful furniture, I have recently succumbed to the odd piece.

The first was a teal armchair, which I totally love, so I’ve decided it’s time to be a little more adventurous, which is why I’m investing in this gorgeous Citrine Side Table for the bedroom.

Covered in a textured woven fabric, this brightly coloured table has been finished with a row of glamorous studs and comes complete with a handy drawer.

Of course, while it’s perfect as a bedside table, it would also work equally well next to a sofa or armchair on even in a hallway.

Dixie Circus Chandelier

Go bright and bold with this striking Dixie Circus Chandelier, £120.

A few years ago, when upcycling became a thing, everyone was at it – some with disastrous results – however some of them got it right and some are still doing it very well.

Such as Mols & Tati-Lois, who have created a striking range of upcycled lighting designs.

My favourite is this Dixie Circus Chandelier, which has been turned into a bold statement piece with the addition of a myriad of vintage fabrics and trimmings.

Perfect for creating a feminine but not too girly boudoir, each one of these striking pieces is a one-off meaning you’re getting a truly original piece.

Colour watch: Turquoise

Some turquoise favourites

Give your home an instant boost with these turquoise treats.

Turquoise is a particular favourite colour of mine; probably because any time I start a new job or have a big event in my life, my Mum always makes sure I have a piece of it with me. As someone who is superstitious beyond belief, she believes it brings good luck and helps to keep you safe.

Reminiscent of exotic seas, this shade works well in both contemporary and classic interiors. Whether you opt for a pale, eau de nil shade or a darker, almost teal hue, both work well with pink, yellow, grey and white as complementary colours.

We have a great selection of products here at Furnish to inject this colour into your home from lighting and wallpaper to stylish, glass accessories.

If you’re looking to invest in a new lamp to combat the onset of autumnal darker evenings, this Fluoro Fringe Table Lamp in Turquoise by The French Bedroom Company is just the ticket, while this Multi Rug in Sea Blue by Naken Interiors will look striking teamed with white floorboards.

And what could be a better way to display statement autumn blooms than this Normann Copenhagen Swing Vase by Red Candy, which is available is three sizes.

As I have a habit of breaking glasses on a regular basis, I can’t really be trusted with expensive ones. So I thought I was doomed to a life of supermarket cheapies.

But not so after a recent snoop around Primrose & Plum’s gorgeous products, which led me to discover these Coloured Pressed Glass Tumblers.

Peggy Wallpaper in British Lichen by Rose & Grey

Update your walls with this simple Mini Moderns Peggy Wallpaper, £45.

I’ve long been a fan of Mini Moderns, so I was thrilled when they introduced a new wallpaper design to their ever-growing collection.

Peggy, the second design from the Hinterland collection, has been inspired by pegboards (love the name!) and is available in five colourways: Mustard, Snow, Lido, Concrete and, my personal favourite, British Lichen.

Perfect for any room in the home from hallway to bedroom, I really fancy installing this simple, yet ever so effective, wallpaper in my home office to bring the walls to life.

Get cosy with our great range of gorgeous rugs.

As we’re now into October, it’s time to start thinking about cosying up your home. Rugs are a perfect way to add some extra comfort to your floors, especially if you have wooden or stone flooring, and are also a great way to inject colour, texture and pattern.

We have a huge range of gorgeous rugs here at Furnish, whether you’re looking for classic or contemporary, and these are just a few of our favourites.

If you’re looking for a really cosy option for the living room or bedroom, this super soft Sheepskin Rug by Out There Interiors definitely ticks all the boxes, while this Wonderland Children’s Rug by Naken Interiors is perfect for a little one’s room.

If you’re after some retro style the Dahlia Rug by Element Interiors is great for adding some bold pattern and colour and comes in four vivid colours, while those looking to add a real style statement will love this Mauve 1p Rug by Out There Interiors which is an oversized replica of a Royal Mail postage stamp.

Kartell Spoon Chair in Orange

Give your home office a funky touch with this Kartell Spoon Chair in Orange, £437.

As someone who spends a lot of time in their home office, I know how important it is to have a good, supportive and comfortable office chair.

My current one has a habit of spontaneously shrinking to the floor in slow motion which, believe me, is more than a little annoying, so I’ve decided to treat myself to a new one.

And I’ve plumped for this rather striking Kartell Spoon Chair in Orange by Amara Living.

With all the style you’d expect from Kartell and all the usual gizmos you’d expect in an office chair, it’s perfect for adding a contemporary pop of colour.

Madra Log Storage and Carrier

Introduce a contemporary feel to your fireplace with this Madra Log Storage and Carrier, £110.

I know it’s still a little early to be talking about roaring log fires but I’m already looking forward to lighting mine this winter. And I’m looking forward to getting hold of some stylish fireside accessories to sit alongside it.

Which is why I love this Madra Log Storage and Carrier by Naken Interiors. Simple yet stylish, this clever log holder has a removable carrier which means you don’t have to struggle with arms full of logs and easily slips onto its sleek metal stand.

Perfect for a contemporary living room, this piece is both good looking and practical.

Strap mirrors are all the rage at the moment and are perfect for adding some industrial style to the home.

Ideal for every room in the home from the bedroom to hallway, these mirrors look equally great displayed together to turn a plain wall into a room’s focal point or on their own.

Oak Sofa

Go sleek and simple with this gorgeous Oak Sofa, £1,400.

Regular readers will know I err on the side of simple when it comes to choosing furniture.

In fact, almost every piece in my home adheres to these three rules; clean lines, no embellishment and, perhaps most importantly, well made and built to last.

Which is why I love retro furniture so much as it’s already been around for ages, and I love imagining who owned it and where it lived before it found its way to me.

However, every now and again a new piece makes its way into the collection and my latest furniture crush is this Oak Sofa by Artstar.

I adore the sleek lines and nod to classic Scandinavian design, and really love the addition of a side table and drawer, which makes this perfect for a hallway.
