5 affordable home updates for autumn

One of the best things about the changing seasons is the excuse they give you to update both your closet and your home. I might not love autumn, but I DO love these five products, which are easy ways to freshen up your home, without spending too much money…

// GEORGE HOME ‘HAPPILY EVER AFTER’ CUSHION

I’m under strict instructions from ShoeperMan to stop buying cushions, but, well, can I help it that they’re such a great way to give a room a slightly different look, even if you’re on a serious budget? This one is just GBP7, and I wouldn’t be remotely surprised if ShoeperMan walks into our living room one day and finds it waiting for him…

// H&M SOFT PINK BLANKET

I recently bought some pink and grey bedlinen for our master bedroom, and I reckon this soft pink blanket would be the perfect finishing touch for it. Mind you, it also comes in grey: decisions, decisions…

// YANKEE CANDLE IN AUTUMN NIGHT

My Yankee Candle addiction is getting a little bit out of hand, if I’m perfectly honest, but lighting a candle is a part of my relaxation routine, and I just can’t have too many of them: you need one for every mood, right? For those of you who just can’t wait for autumn to roll around, this ‘Autumn Night’ candle sounds like it’ll be right up your street: in fact, looking at the picture on the label is ALMOST making me look forward to the new season myself.

// NEW LOOK BLACK LETTER LIGHT BOX

This is such a cool little accessory: it’s a light box, complete with a set of 60 letters and symbols, which allow you to create your own personalised sign. I’m thinking this could be perfect for the home office… and for Instagram, obviously!

// TELL A BEAUTIFUL STORY PLAQUE

If you read my other blog, you may recognise this little star plaque, which pops up in my photos from time to time. As a writer, I love the sentiment – and I also love the way it looks in my bedroom. Not bad for GBP3.99!
