We come home to autumn.
After our sizzling summer travels there is something comforting about home, opening the doors on a familiar space.
This seasonal switch turns our thoughts to transitional layering, a light cosiness, a warmer palette and perhaps revamping a room or two as we are inspired by the new autumn collections for our interiors.
Here's our autumnal edit to ease us into a new season.
Did you read our recent guest blog with Radio DJ and presenter Jo Whiley, one of the country's most popular presenters who also fronts Glastonbury. She opened the doors to her busy family home where she says,
"the most important thing is that it is relaxed and comfortable."
Jo loves texture and our chunky Wool Pebble made to measure rug is perfect with her velvet sofas and vibrant cushions.
Tartan sets the tone of the autumn catwalks. It's like a leaf waiting to turn into a blaze of colour.
Quirky Tartan is a youthful spin of this storied classic and part of our collection of patterned carpets, rugs and runners.
Christina Horspool aka @houseofhorspool delights in this rebellious cloth in her magical Scottish home that dresses her hallways and landings.
Inspired by the rich heritige of England this Checked Patchwork wallpaper design combines a vibrant green with natural textures, reminiscent of traditional textiles. Explore the refined elegance and timeless charm of this classic yet modern take on tartan.

Autumn is the time to feel the warm embrace of wonderful wool. A natural fibre full of comfort that is soft underfoot.
