Cosy autumn homeware for your soft living era

Because going out is out and staying in is in

words Sophie Lou Wilson

There’s no getting around it. The crunchy autumn leaves might look pretty, but the days are getting darker and the temperatures are dropping. A month ago the thought of going out was delightful. Now, you look out the window into the darkness, hoping that your friends will cancel your plans so you can stay in.

Cosy cafes and pubs look welcoming from the outside, but then you think about having to trudge back home in the cold realising you just spent half your savings on overpriced pints and festive lattes. Let’s face it, you’d rather stay at home. We’re in our soft living era and there’s nothing wrong with that.

If you’re spending more time at home, it’s the perfect opportunity to get to those interior updates you’ve been thinking about for ages but have been too busy to do. Why not spend the money you’ve saved from fewer nights out on a trippy incense holder or a soothing blend of tea? Staying in can be just as plush as going out.

The Danish call it hygge, the “quality of cosiness and comfortable conviviality” that can come from warm fragrances, blankets and fireplaces. It has proven effects on our mood and wellbeing and can even combat some of the symptoms of seasonal affective disorder.

Embrace the cosy season with our round-up of the best autumn homewares to make the perfect hibernation space, from high-on-nostalgia lava lamps to soulful turntables.

To rejuvenate in bed without a care about cancelling plans feels like such a bygone sentiment. As you metaphorically touch grass and return to a softer, slower life, let your music go back in time as well. This wooden turntable gives dreamy, vintage vibes without the trouble of glitchy records. Pair in the bluetooth, close your eyes and sway in bed, Frank Sinatra is on his way.
