  1. When September rolls around and summer slips away into the distance, we’re left looking longingly behind us. But autumn has its own charms, and aligning your décor to the changing seasons can ease you into the colder months with a feeling of comfort and content.

    So, as we bid the summer months goodbye, it’s a positive step to reflect this seasonal shift and readying your home for autumn is simple when you know where to begin. Here we’ve put together some of our best tips.

    Fall back into an earthy colour scheme

    Your interior may well be peppered with vibrant and summery cushions, lighting, table-wear and accessories right now, but as autumn arrives, think about changing up your decorations.

    Earthy tones work well at this time of year, so consider substituting the bold yellows and pinks of August for soft tones of brown and green. Metallic touches of copper and gold add warmth, offering a gentle glow, perfect for the time of year. You can begin to bring in blankets, rugs and throws too – which will help to instil the autumn colour scheme whilst offering extra layers for the colder temperatures.

    Refill the flower containers

    As the vast array of summer blooms begins to wane, you’ll need to rethink your floral arrangements and a simple inexpensive solution is on hand. Those bright and colourful bouquets can be exchanged for more subtle shades using pinecones, crunchy leaves, and woven plant pots – natural decorative touches that invite the new season indoors. 

    Light and scents

    As the nights draw in and we begin to lose the natural light we’ve enjoyed so much over the past six months, you’ll need new light sources to illuminate your indoor spaces. Lamps are a quick fix, but to really transform bedrooms and down stairs living spaces, consider fitted furniture with built-in lighting features that can be dimmed to set the mood.

    Complement these lights with candles to create an atmospheric setting for during the colder months, helping the room to both look and feel warmer. Musky scents work well for the living room, giving your interior a reassuringly cosy aroma from now right through winter.

    Opt for warmer textures

    To add snugness in the chillier evenings, consider how you can incorporate comforting textures into your bedroom and living room. Change your bedding for something a little thicker, layer up with varied textures and select rich tones and velvety surfaces for your cushions and comforters. Sheepskin rugs and faux fur throws will also work wonders when it comes to creating a fine autumn ambience.

    Autumn can be just as inspiring for your décor as summer; it simply takes a little more creativity. Follow these tips to transform key rooms in your home ahead of the cooler months, from simply tweaks to lasting changes. Hartleys offer stylish bespoke furniture for every season and have experts on hand for guidance whenever you need it.

  4. Whenever I think relax I think three things: sofa, tea and cake! Very British of me I know but everyone knows a good sit down and cuppa tea soon rids those stresses of the day and with the average person drinking 2-3 cups of the good stuff a day - it seems I’m not the only one. So it may come of no surprise that mine (and many others!) favourite pastime has evolved into Kiss Air’s new Summer candle range – the Tea & Cake collection!

    tea borderNow the cake side of this is truly spectacular! When I was a kid my mum would often take me into the local bakery to buy my favourite “marshmallow stuffed ice cream cone topped with sprinkles” treat and the smell of that bakery from all those sweet goodies was just heavenly. These cake candles do just the same, as soon as that fragrance hits you’re nose you’ll never want to lose it.

    First up is Jam Sponge and it’s our take on a classic British cake, Victoria Sponge, so you can expect the scent of vanilla sponge smothered in sweet raspberry jam to fill your house when burning the candle.

    And last but by no means least, Chocolate Cake! Now this scent is indulgent and, like all our candles, it smells just like the real thing so it’ll soon have your mouth-watering!

    And finally, Lemon Drizzle, this scented candle has been in range for a while and with good reason with its delicious scent of lemon syrup, poppyseed, and brown sugar all sitting on base notes of marshmallow fluff and vanilla cake batter.

    Don’t know about you, but all of a sudden I’m craving cake….

    The cake candles really are the most on point imitations of the real thing that you’ll ever find. But we understand that some people need some light, fresh alternatives to counter those cosy, comforting, indulgent scents and that is exactly what the tea candles do.

    I cannot big up the Fresh Mint Tea candle enough! This is perfect for Spring/Summer – a real uplifting, refreshing, clean scent of crushed mint leaves and white tea. It really is a cleanse the pallet kind of candle and will certainly give that cooling impression when the hot Summer evenings roll round.

    Earl Grey Tea is yet another British classic that we had to include in this range. The bergamot infused black tea has been drunk in Britain since the 1920s so has more that stood the test of time. With its subtly sweet and zesty scent we’re hoping this candle will be just as popular as the real thing.

    So there you have it! A real British inspired collection from a proud to be British candle company.

    I'd love to know what your tea and cake combo will be, so leave me a comment below.
