Autumn Home Styling With Layered Lounge

Autumn has officially commenced here in the UK, and we’re already excited for pumpkin spice lattes, crisp mornings and the beautiful shades of burgundy as the leaves begin to fall. It’s our favourite time of the year as there’s just nothing better than an evening spent snuggled in a cosy blanket with an autumnal candle flickering away whilst you delve into a brand new Netflix series (we’re eagerly awaiting the return of Stranger Things) with that being said it’s time to ensure your home is autumn ready!

Turn your space into a comfortable, cosy yet chic environment to enjoy all Autumn long with the new online interior decor store, hot on our radar: Layered Lounge.

Here at YCB magazine we’re self confessed interior fiends, all those hours of scrolling Pinterest have us constantly creating new and interesting ways to update our interiors. Your house is your safe haven, your home and a space that should reflect your personal taste.

There’s no better time than the new season to give your home a few updates, and luckily for you we teamed up with Lou and Suzy, the duo behind Layered Lounge, to give you our top tips for creating a cosy, homely space that won’t cost you the earth. With every sale they make on their own fragrance range of candles, diffusers and room sprays, Layered Lounge supports the local charity Action 4 Archie — and now you can too…!

Soft Patterned Blankets

When it comes to this time of year, you can never have too many blankets! The UK is renowned for its cold temperatures and winters that seem to go on forever. Throw a beautiful blanket such as this one from Layered Lounge on your sofa for a chic and comfortable update. Opt for a plain blanket if you own a patterned sofa as not to go too OTT!

Autumnal Scents

Is it really autumn if you don’t buy around 35 new candles? A new scent is an absolute must, and we’d recommend this beautiful Layered Lounge ‘Wild Fig’ reed diffuser and candle. There’s nothing more relaxing and romantic than settling down with a thrilling new book and a candle flickering away in the background. Bliss!

A Few Colourful Accents

Just because it’s autumn doesn’t mean *everything* has to turn to grey, brown and deep shades of red. You can still experiment with a few lighter brighter shades to ensure the mood in your living space still feels cheerful and upbeat. We love these cushions from Layered Lounge in subtle pinks and blues which will work nicely with your interior all year round.

Perfect Mood Lighting

A fantastic, safer alternative to a real flame are these faux flickering candles. Made using a material that feels just like real wax, these candles will light up and flicker away just like the real thing without the fire. This is absolutely perfect if you have children or excitable pets in the house. They will also last much longer offering the perfect evening mood lighting. A real must-have.

We can’t wait to fill our homes with beautiful blankets, enchanting home fragrances and comfy cushions ready for autumn hibernation! Bring on the boxsets, pamper nights-in and slumber parties. You’re never too old for a slumber party, right?
