Make autumn awesome with these 13 gorgeous décor buys for your home.
As the temperature starts dropping and the leaves begin changing colour, we often feel a bit of a drop in the mood as the realisation kicks in that summer is no longer in the air. Rather than allowing the change in season to bring you down, use it as an opportunity to give your home an autumn makeover…
1. Pretty throws
A pretty throw not only keeps you warm while you’re watching TV, but it can be used to give your living room a bit of a facelift when strategically placed on a couch or chair — simple and practical. And Mr Price Home has a super affordable range. (Pictured from left to right: Honeycomb throw R119,99, Chenille throw R199,99, Linen deco throw R229,99)
2. Scatter cushions
Changing up your scatter cushions is always the simplest way to give your home, or a room in your home, an instant makeover. As we move into the cooler months, bring in warmer colours (this doesn’t mean duller colours!), and if you want to be on trend, digital prints are the way to go. (Pictured from left to right: Top — Patchwork cushion, R299; Woodlands cushion, R150; Painterly cushion R160; all from Woolworths. Bottom — Red forest cushion, R229; Grey bear cushion, R249; both from @home)
3. In the kitchen
If there’s one thing that’s synonomous with cooler weather and autumn months, it’s tea (or coffee) time! Make sure you’re prepared to warm your guests up from the inside out with a fab range of goodies. Gone are the days when everything in your kitchen needed to be from the same set… Mix and match for a quirky effect. (Pictured from left to right: Top — Porcelain teapot, R170, Woolworths. Queen B tea for one, R169, @home. Bottom — Pastel footed mug, R25,99, Mr Price Home. Porcelain dot mug, R19,95, Woolworths. Duck egg floral mug, R35, @home)
