Favourite Looks For Autumn

Lucy Parker 10 Oct, 2017

Hello October! This blog post is to share our favourite looks and accessories for your home this autumn to help you create a cosy space perfect for the change of season. As the seasons change, the evenings are getting darker and the temperature getting colder we are packing away the outdoor furniture and moving indoors to a warm and beautiful interior.

Cushions and Blankets

Movie and popcorn nights with friends or family on the sofa are a great way to enjoy autumnal evenings. The feeling of being cosy and warm, watching your favourite film whilst enjoying a bowl full of freshly popped, buttery popcorn can make an evening inside sound more appealing than heading out!

Here at Guy Phoenix, we can offer our services to make bespoke and made-to-measure cushions with any style of material you should require. Whatever the colour scheme, material palette or size, we can provide a beautifully handmade cushion to sit proudly in your home.

Dinnerware for Autumnal Suppers

The autumnal season is perfect for heartwarming and delicious meals, whether that’s a homemade creamy cottage pie, a butternut squash soup or a baked crumble. Enjoying a delicious meal with friends over candlelight can be a great way to get everyone together.  Having beautiful dinnerware can transform your dinner table displaying your home cooking (or ready meals, we don’t judge) to create the perfect dinner party. Cutipol have beautiful collections of tableware and cutlery, with the uniquely shaped gold and silver collection. If there are any collections or looks that you have in mind, get in touch and we can offer our services


Light up Your Living Room

When returning from work, from a cold and blustery day, there is nothing more welcoming than returning to a warm and beautifully lit home. From the moment you walk through the front door to a stunning twinkling chandelier to cosying up in your favourite corner of the room with book with an overhead lamp on, lighting plays a big part at this time of year. We wanted to build a collection that ranges from colour, material and size to fit a range of styles. If you are interested in our favourite collection of Porta Romana, check out our blog post here.

Rugs and Carpets

There is no better feeling than waking up in the morning, heading into the kitchen to make a morning cup of coffee and feeling a soft-as-silk rug under your toes. Soft furnishings are the perfect investment when the house may feel a tad cooler than in the previous seasons so choosing the perfect rug for your home can be an important decision. We have a range of favourites from Eichholtz and Jackaranda with choices of silk, wool, patterned or tonal.

Candlelit Evenings

Nothing says romance like candlelight. With such a range of scented candles available you can make your home smell like cinnamon and spices or sandalwood and musk, you can even go as far as to have the scent of baked bread! We had to have candles and candle holders as our top autumnal items to have because they instantly create a snug and cosy atmosphere. If you’re enjoying a glass of wine with a friend or have last minute guests arriving, by lighting a few tea lights you can instantly create a welcoming atmosphere to enjoy a catch up over an Irish hot chocolate – with the whipped cream and marshmallows of course.

Perfect Autumnal Centerpieces

Your dining table and window ledges are a great place to festively decorate your home with an autumnal display. From pumpkins to seasonal berries the addition of foliage can create the most spectacular centerpiece. A great styling tip is to integrate your fresh flowers with silk ones to bulk out your bouquet. There are some fantastic styling displays, take a look at our inspirational board here.
