Monica B. Welburn-Leggett (@monicabeatrice), lifestyle influencer and editor at The Elgin Avenue, selects her top ten interior pieces to create a cosy home for her favourite season, autumn. Her love for the leafy season is mirrored throughout her own home, which includes mixing textures, soft furnishings and amber lighting.
Though every season has its own merits, there is something uniquely rich and cosy about autumn.
It is a time to refocus on your home. To make it all the more welcoming for cosy nights in and long languid weekends. If you aren’t already thinking about it, may I suggest pouring some extra love and energy into your home?
Be it textured cushion covers, berber-style rugs, vases, dinnerware, you name it! La Redoute’s homeware looks so much more luxurious than its purse-friendly price tag.
For my fellow autumn-lovers, I’ve created an edit of 10 La Redoute homeware items I love for creating a truly cosy home for the amber-leaf season. Enjoy!
Amoris brass and smoked glass floor lamp: Curling up with a great book is synonymous with au-tumn for me. A floor lamp allows you to create a reading ‘nook’ wherever you like in your home. This one is elegant and timeless.
Parfeto cotton throw: I have this throw at home on my own bed and love how it adds weight for ex-tra cosiness. Texture also creates a feeling of warmth, and the neutral colour goes with most decor.
Alphi woolen blanket: A sumptuous rich wool blanket, perfect for curling up with on the sofa. I have a big basket next to my sofa which I keep piled high with warm blankets. Whenever I want to get cosy I reach for one to wrap up in. Speaking of which . . .
Armaure kubu rattan storage basket: The perfect home for your autumn blankets.
Panama fringed cotton cushion cover in blush pink: Cushions, cushions and more cushions! If you want to up the cosy factor in your home, adding cushions to your sofa, chairs, benches and bed is a quick and inexpensive way to do so.
Domitian hand-embroidered cushion cover in powder pink: Layer this pretty cushion alongside the deeper blush pink. Tonal hues create a cohesive look, whilst layers make a space feel warmer and more inviting.
Odorie linen and viscose cushion in powder pink: I like to ‘anchor’ my sofas with a middle cushion, this one in soft linen and viscose is the perfect finishing touch to a tonal cushion display.
Izolia demijohn glass vase in amber: Earthy colours are perfect for autumn. Look out for amber pieces like this beautiful glass vase, which would look stunning styled with pampas grass plumes.
Metal tealight candle holders: Nothing sets an autumnal vibe quite like the glow of candles. This duo of candle jars can be styled together for impact, or distributed throughout a room for little pools of glowing light.
Lumi metal lantern: This is a statement lantern which would look amazing aside a fireplace, or styled next to the metal candle jars above.
