Mixing Bowls
Bringing out autumn coloured kitchen prep accessories is a subtle way to suit your home to the season. Tag‘s new multi-harvest prep bowls can be used to prepare your autumn pastries or to display your freshly picked apples. ($15 per set of 3 )

Keeping yourself warm and toasty in bed feels like a great luxury when escaping from autumn weather, and nothing is more luxurious than Restoration Hardware’s Italian pinstripe sateen duvet cover. As beautiful as it is comfy, this classic duvet cover comes in colours ranging from taupe (shown) to marine blue. ($299 full/queen)





Changing up home accessories for each season is an easy way to update a home, but you’ll also need space to store the replaced items. These mahogany-stained palm leaf ottomans from Tag come in a set of two and are a style savvy storage solution for out-of-season throws or pillows. (MSRP $125)

Fireplace guard
The end of summer bonfires at the cottage doesn’t need to mean the end of cosying up by the fire altogether. The Campaign Hearth flat screen from Restoration Hardware is the chicest new fire accessory there is, guarding the flames whilst still allowing the fire to warm your home. ($299 US)





When decorating for the seasons, it’s a great idea to check out the budget-friendly stores, like IKEA. This cream-coloured Havtorn Farm vase stands tall and would look picture perfect with some faux wheat sheaves or tall berry sprigs. ($40)
