Essential accessories to hygge your home for Autumn

Essential Accessories to Hygge your Home for Autumn

We’ve recently given our living space a lick of paint and a freshen up.  It took a while to find the perfect shade of paint for the walls and we did the skirting boards a different shade to contrast.  Turns out that hubby seems to have an eye for interior design and presented me with this scene which I loved.

On a night-time, it really does feel cosy (so you kind of have to use your imagination for this daylight shot!).  I thought I’d share what we’ve got in our hygged-up home.  (these are not the exact items but very similar.  I couldn’t find the exact ones we’ve got online)

 

I love how these fairy lights are battery powered because our house is short on sockets.  And the sockets we do have are all used up!  So to find these battery powered lights was amazeballs…  I love fairy lights, hubby loves them (and not just because I do) and our 8yo love them too.  They even seem to chill the dog out.  What’s not to love?

So this house plant might not be exactly like ours but it’ll give the same effect.  Live plants are best of course, because of the oxygen they release.  I’ve read that spikey plants are not good for feng shui so I’ve had a word with hubby and he knows for next time!

No home of ours would be complete without candles and pretty candle holders and lanterns.  Love love love them and as long as they’re high enough for the dog/cat not to get to them, they’re an essential addition, creating a chilled out, relaxed mood.  Bliss!

 

Put all this together and what have you got?  A hygged-up home! 

Our home 🙂

The Four Walls and the Fences

The Theme Game home four walls

The time was going quickly,

The landscape whizzing by,

No sooner had she left the platform,

Feelings were soaring high…

~

The clankety-clank of the wheels,

The swaying of the train,

Had left her feeling sleepy,

And excited all the same.

~

Familiar sights coming into view,

Feelings still as high,

The train grinding to a halt,

It all made her wonder why.

~

Why she felt a pang of loss,

Why she felt at ease,

Why she was missing where she had left,

Why she felt so pleased.

~

Then the familiar face,

Waiting at the side,

The warm welcome greeted her,

From a hug to the loving eyes.

~

This weekend had come up fast,

For that was elated,

But the four days would just not last,

And for that felt deflated.

~

Familiar sights, sounds, tastes, feelings, smells,

All of the five senses,

Never leave home where the proverbial heart is,

The four walls and the fences.
