Autumn-country-home-decor-inspiration

I’ve been nesting in a rather all-consuming way recently, and it’s all the fault of the season. With the nights drawing in earlier and earlier and the weather cooling down rapidly (for the most part…though what on earth were the last couple of days of October about?!), it’s time to start feathering our nests with woollen blankets and sheepskins and spice-scented candles set on every available surface. Or at least, I think it is anyway.

Whilst we’re on the subject of sheepskins, let’s talk for a minute about the one in these photos. I’ve never had one in the house before, and now I’ve bought one, I want at least ten more. Two for the floor each side of our bed, one on the leather armchair, two as a rug in the guest bedroom, another for my desk chair- hell, even the dog can have one! Teddy’s quite partial to this puppy, if I’m honest. I put it down on the floor in the evenings quite frequently along with a load of cushions when I’m feeling too sprawl-y for the sofa, and the dog tries to commandeer it as his own the second my back is turned. Ted’s probably just trying to show both the sheepskin and me who’s boss though, to be honest, after I may or may not have wrapped it round him the other day to see if he’d look like one of those cute white sheep with the black legs and faces. In reality he just looked like a very angry spaniel wearing a rug, which was both predictable and amusing.

Aside from a pretty serious sheepskin obsession, the other main loves of my life right now (aside from the aforementioned grumpy spaniel and my fiancé, of course) are a rather dashing set of 3 wire baskets, and candles. Our house looks like Blackpool Illuminations every day come 5pm, with all the candles I have burning round the place. We’ve got latte scented candles here, apple + cinnamon candles there, and my all-time favourite mandarin, cinnamon + clove candle in pride of place in the living room. It’s been the scent of Christmas for me for years now, ever since my Mum first started buying it every festive season. Those baskets are a very recent find though, and I’m very much in love. I’ve put one of them on the kitchen windowsill, to take the place of the latest batch of herbs I’ve managed to massacre and had to throw out ;)

The overall look I’ve been striving for with the house is sort of ‘cosy country cottage’- with warm colours and plenty of soft textures and natural fabrics and materials. Jason thinks I’ve been heavily influenced by A) two trips to Scotland in the past six months, and B) Pinterest. Eh! He’s probably right ;) But enough talk- and now, photos!

Are you ‘feathering your nest’ right now too? Let’s talk about shopping in the comments. Because it’s Monday, and also because it’s early November which means we’ve probably only got another week or so left before we have to stop buying treats for ourselves and can only buy Christmas presents instead, right?

September-pins1

There’s been a little party going on on my Pinterest boards during September! Pinterest featured me as a ‘Pinner to follow’ earlier on in the month, so my little follower number zipped up at quite the rate! And since I’m kind of a giant Pinterest obsessive, it’s been pretty fun! Big thanks to the Pinterest team for making all the hours I spend pootling around on their site feel justified ;)

Here’s a little round up of all that’s caught my eye, and inspired my creativity during the past month!

1 :: misty river scenes.
2 :: braided chocolate bread.
3. lace detailing + the most beautiful green felt hat.
4. halloumi + beetroot burgers with chilli jam.
5. worn-in boots + a soft grey blanket.
6. low tide.
7. a beautifully ombréd bob.
8. nordic + natural christmas decor.
9. camembert baked with rosemary + almonds.
10. an eclectic seating area (plus a gallery wall to die for!)
11. harvesting from the vegetable patch.
12. the sweetest hug.

PapernStitch-Doughnut-icecream-sandwiches-

So far, this Wednesday has been made up of peach & honey porridge, tea, and ginormous under-eye bags. The porridge and tea are self-explanatory (breakfast time, peach obsession and all that) but the under-eye bags and exciting news need elaborating on. So- eye bags first! I’m kind of exhausted, since yesterday afternoon was spent standing in my kitchen in front of two giant cameras and lights and with a microphone attached to the front of my shirt, being filmed for a new project I’m working on right now. It was kind of nerve-wracking! Teddy took a turn on camera too, handsome little man that he is, and worked his angles like a pro. Right after we finished filming in the evening (at about half past 7) I dashed off to Pilates feeling full of beans and energy, and then crashed so hard during class I thought I was going to pass out! I’m still pretty exhausted today (completely had forgotten how tiring being ‘on’ in front of a camera can be) so plan on having a slow-motion day today. Here are a few of my favourite links from round the web of late…

Doughnut. Icecream. Sandwiches. (I KNOW.)

This Buzzfeed roundup made me laugh so much whilst reading it in bed the other night, I actually woke Jason up. (I’ve since read it out to him, and he laughed hard too)

Lemon & thyme white chocolate truffles.

In love with Annabel’s beautiful line illustrations.

An incredible behind-the-scenes film of a Scottish Ballet photoshoot that made me itch to dance again (thanks to Ann on Twitter for this one!)

The most beautiful apron!

An indulgent breakfast fruit crumble.

A ranking of the best (most traumatising!) deaths in this series of Game of Thrones (contains spoilers, of course).

This lamp is calling out to me. It’s calling out ‘Rosie, please buy at least one of me, if not two or three’…

A day in the life of an ice cream maker! (person, not machine).

Will you see The Fault in Our Stars? – this review from The Telegraph is mixed.
