HAPPY HOME DETAILS
Back at the beginning of the year I put together a post all about some of the pieces in our home that make me happy! You guys seem to really enjoy getting a glimpse into our space so I thought I’d work on something similar for Fall. Although Aslan and I are suckers for a statement couch or beautiful desk, it’s often the little things in our home that make us the happiest. Sometimes the small details in a space can have just as much of an impact as a big piece of artwork or a huge, 8ft cactus (shoutout to Richard lol). Here’s a round up of some of the pieces in our home that are making me super cozy this Autumn.
The new addition that I’m probably the most excited about is this beautiful Pomegranate Noir candle by Jo Malone. We have a couple of Jo Malone candles scattered around our home but I would have to say that the Pomegranate Noir is my favourite scent of them all. What I love about this candle is that there are so many elements to the scent; as soon as you light one of these babies you instantly get hit with the beautiful fruity pomegranate and raspberry notes but sniff a little longer and you’ll start to smell the deep warmth of the amber and wood. This is the kind of candle that literally fills our entire home with its scent and makes the room feel super warm and cozy. It’s the perfect candle for Autumn and I’m so excited to start burning this more often as the evenings draw in. Don’t forget that Jo Malone have a gorgeous range of diffusers too! We currently have the Lime, Basil and Mandarin diffuser in our hallway but I would totally love to get the Pomegranate Noir diffuser for Fall.
I pretty much live in my slippers from September to April so every time Autumn rolls around I make it my mission to find a new pair for the coming season. A few weeks back I received an email from an amazing brand called ‘Woolenstocks’ who produce luxury hand crafted artisan slippers and was super excited when they offered to send me a pair to try! I decided to pick a pair of the ‘Boo Boo’ slippers which are made from 100% felt wool and faux fur. Apparently it takes 40 hours to make each slipper which is amazing and definitely makes them feel extra special! What makes me love this brand even more is that every time you buy a pair of slips you’re actually helping women and girls to get an education, start a business and provide for their families. Woolenstocks also work with an organisation called ‘Find Your Feet’ which helps families in Africa and Asia to grow enough food to find long term solutions to poverty. These truly are some of the comfiest, most beautiful slippers I’ve ever owned (and probably ever will own!) and the fact that Woolenstocks work hard to help make a difference in peoples’ lives makes me love them even more. P.s. I also have my eye on this pair of ‘Kosy Koos’…HOW ADORABLE!!
I have to admit that I was completely drawn in by the beautiful cover as soon as I saw Ali Smith’s ‘Autumn’ on the shelves in the book shop, but as soon as I read the blurb I knew I just had to add this book to my ever growing collection. I’m not the best at trying to explain the plot of a book I’m yet to read, so instead I’ll insert the blurb so that you can get an idea of what this book is all about…‘Autumn. Season of mists and yellow fruitfulness. That’s what it felt like for Keats in 1819. How about Autumn 2016? Daniel is a century old. Elisabeth, born in 1984, has her eye on the future. The United Kingdom is in pieces, divided by a historic once-in-a-generation summer. Love is won, love is lost. Hope is hand in hand with hopelessness. The season rolls around as ever’. Just catching a glimpse of this book sitting on our coffee table is enough to spark a little ounce of happiness within me, and I just know I’m going to enjoy sitting in my spot on the sofa with a cup of tea and this book in hand. If any of you guys have read ‘Autumn’ let me know if you enjoyed it!
If you read my last interiors post you might have heard me talking about the Scandinavian inspired homeware brand Att Pynta. Aslan and I have been obsessed with this brand for a while now so we were both super excited when they got in touch and offered to send us a few pieces from their new collection. I’ve been searching for some cute towels for our bathroom for ages, so as soon as I spotted these beautiful striped cotton towels on the site I just knew they had to come and live with us! Our bathroom is very minimal so I thought that these towels would inject just the right amount of colour without being too ‘in your face’. They’re made from this wonderfully soft cotton and they’re deceivingly big! We have been using these as hand towels but you could totally wrap yourself up in one of these after you jump out of the shower, or even use it on the beach for a picnic. We also picked out this amber glass bathroom set which we love! Within the set you get a glass tumbler which is perfect for things like combs and toothbrushes, along with a matching soap dispenser which looks super cute on the sink! Don’t ask me why, but little details like these fill me with such joy!
Another homeware item that I’ve been obsessed with from Att Pynta is this adorable wicker basket! You might have noticed that Reggie has quiiiiiite a lot of toys so I thought it was about time that we find a cute little basket to store them all in (how adorable do his toys look poking out over the top!? *weeps*!!) Baskets seem to be THE THING at the moment and I love how the wicker ties in with all the natural wood in our home. If you’re looking for a basket to keep blankets or magazines in then this one is great because you can fit soooo much stuff in there! We chose the basket with the white base but they also do a version in dusty pink which is just as gorgeous. Make sure you check out Att Pynta for cute homeware stuff, it’s one of our fave sites!
Lastly I just have to take a minute to mention another pair of slippers that I picked up from ASOS…don’t you just want to slip your feet into these babies and float around the house like a glamorous hollywood star!?…I know I do lol! These slippers are by a brand called ‘Ozlana’ which I believe is somehow linked with Ugg (correct me if I’m wrong?) and they are pretty much the definition of dreamy. I picked up a pair of the Fruit Slider Slippers in grey and yellow, but I’ve also got my eye on this super cute pastel pink pair because I really wanna channel my inner Baby Spice lol! These slips are quite pricey but they’re great quality so they’re definitely going to last you a couple of Autumn/Winters. Let me know which colour is your fave!
I’m such a home body and I’m not afraid to say it! Are there any home bodies out there like me? I’d love to know what homeware pieces are pulling on your heart strings at the moment. Also leave me a comment and tell me if there’s any little details in your home that make you happy too! I love getting a feel for other people’s spaces!
