With the hazy days of summer feeling like a distant memory, we’re eager to get all bundled up and prepare for autumn. When you’ve looked out your favourite winter coat and well-worn boots, don’t neglect to give your inside space the once over in line with the changing seasons.
In the same way that going back to school in September requires new books and stationery, we think it’s a great excuse to invest in some new additions to turn over a new leaf at home. If you ask us, nothing says, ‘fresh start’ like brand new bedding, and that’s why we’re bringing you a selection of our favourites from Dip & Doze.
The Original White Set is minimalist, effortlessly chic and available in two choices of 100% organic Fair-trade cotton. The Cool and Crisp fabric offers a lightweight and breathable option, perfect for summer months or those of us who just get hot during the night. These sheets are similar to a crisp, ironed shirt and feel like the finest hotel bedlinen.
Alternatively, the Soft and Smooth sheets are sateen, soft and cosy to the touch. They are naturally wrinkle resistant so keeping them neat and tidy is one less thing to worry about. They also have a subtle sheen and can be used any time of year, making them a good all-rounder when it comes to good quality sheets.
Whether you go for plain white, star print or grey stripes each design comes with a handy, reusable cotton drawstring bag to keep everything in one place come laundry day. Don’t forget to complete the set with matching sheets and pillow cases for that luxury hotel feel in the comfort of your own home.
To really add an extra dimension to your new sleep set-up we love this Ivory Macrame Cotton Cushion from Maisons Du Monde. Adding this along with a few textured white cushions is a stylish way to make neutral bedding extra special.
Nothing says autumn like a soft, fuzzy blanket so make sure you pick one that you really love to see you through the long winter months. This Mohair Blanket from Zara is made from wool and comes in a variety of warm and cool shades to suit every taste. We think this would look great folded up in a rustic wicker basket or casually flung over a statement armchair.
Autumnal colours don’t have to be red and brown. In fact, you can add a little warmth to the bedroom by going a shade lighter and heating things up slowly with this neutral pink rug from Marks and Spencer. Place just next to your bed so that the first you walk on every morning is warm and welcoming.
A quick and easy way to revamp your nighttime sanctuary is to change out old artwork for something fresh. This is great way to set the tone in a bedroom and ensure that you go to sleep and wake up feeling inspired every single day. This piece from Anthropologie brings together typical Autumn colours with geometric shapes and was created by Denver-based artist Alyson Khan.
As the nights grow colder and the leaves begin to change, bringing some of the outdoors in can be a smart move when it comes to creating an uplifting space. We love this PapyrMAXX bag planter and it does a stellar job of housing large plants but still looks very minimalist.
This ceramic vase also acts as a cute reminder to add fresh flowers to your bedside table regularly as a little pick me up.
Lighting is key towards the end of the year, as daylight becomes harder to hold onto. Lean into this notion and create a twinkly atmosphere in your bedroom with these Geometric Star Fairy Lights from Not On The High Street. Use them to decorate your headboard, fireplace or vanity mirror and watch as your bedroom transforms into a place of tranquility.
To bring everything together there’s nothing more quintessentially autumn that lighting a scented candle. To set the mood in your carefully crafted new abode, we recommend filling the room with notes of quince, apricot, musk and amber. This White Company Candle should do the trick and is also available as a diffuser and room spray. With everything in place, there’s nothing left do other than curl up with a good book and enjoy.
