Sofa or bed throw for a cosy home

Add warmth with a throw

It’s not exactly the warmest of weather at the moment, especially at night, and if your thoughts are turning towards autumn warmers already, then adding a throw to a sofa or bed provides a great bit of extra warmth.

This magenta pink ripple throw by KAS can be used for just that and provides a lovely bright splash of colour for a dull day or dark evening. The ripple effect is stylish and sets it apart from plain throws. When it gets really cold, why not wrap yourself up in it too?

The ripple throw in magenta costs £45 from Selfridges.

Stunning ceramic horse chestnut conkers

Realistic ceramic horse chestnut conkersDesigner conkersDisplay seasonal autumn conkers in your home

Autumn is a great time of year, not least as it’s conker time! I still can’t resist hunting for conkers and there’s nothing quite like finding a perfect conker hidden beneath a pile of leaves, or opening a newly fallen horse chestnut shell to reveal shiny and fresh new conkers inside. Each year, I return home with my pockets stuffed full and tend to fill large brass bowls with conkers to create a seasonal home decoration.

However, as shiny as they are to start with, natural conkers don’t retain that look for long (although you can varnish them) and soon end up looking dull and shrivelled. So I was thrilled to find these stunning ceramic horse chestnuts which are bursting with the essence and spirit of real conkers.

They are amazingly realistic – they’ve got the look of a shiny and fresh horse chestnut and the way the conkers are sitting inside the shells is just like you find them on the ground. The shells are life-like too, even down to the spikes on the outside, and the conkers can be removed from their ceramic shells if you wish.

The ceramic horsechestnuts are available in various different designs, from Ginger Rose, with prices starting at £69. For conkers that will last forever and still look like new, I think it’s worth it!

Autumnal spotty salt and pepper mill

We love these spotty salt and pepper mills, from Bouf.

The spots are in autumnal shades of brown, terracotta and golden yellow, so very apt for this time of year.

Made by T&G Woodware, the acrylic salt and pepper mills each measure 6.75″ and cost £24.99 at Bouf for the pair.
