Home is where the throw rug is

Highfields' Own - - INTERIOR -

Au­tumn is a sea­son where we typ­i­cally spend a lit­tle more time in our homes, as a chill starts to ap­pear in the morn­ing and the day­light short­ens.

With this in mind, it is the per­fect sea­son to give your­self and your home a lit­tle TLC. The goal here is to cre­ate a space which beck­ons. This way the ex­tended pe­ri­ods in­side will feel rest­ful, in­dul­gent and most im­por­tantly, a lit­tle restora­tive. The first step is to add a lit­tle at­mos­phere. After a long, hard day at work you want to come home to a wel­com­ing space.

A com­bined liv­ing and din­ing area is a great way to achieve a shared space in the home while al­low­ing for a few lit­tle nooks or re­lax­ation spots.

Think plenty of cush­ions, a few throw rugs to snug­gle on the couch with and some tex­tured el­e­ments such as a heavy rug.

This will make the chill of au­tumn work in your favour and bring easy cosi­ness to your home, which is your sanctuary after all.
