How to Get Your Home Autumn Ready
The nights are pulling in and there's a chill in the air. Yep, summer is drawing to a close and the promise of cosy evenings in, rainy days and crisp mornings is not too far away. In this transitional phase, now is a great time to give your home a seasonal reboot. Whether it's a deep clean or a few décor upgrades, making your space a place you want to spend the long dark nights and damp, grey days is key to boosting your mood and creating a snug atmosphere.
Luckily, Westfield London's Home Quarter has you covered. From skin-soft throws and seasonal blooms to woody scents and fresh new hues, it's simple to transform your home and say hello to autumn.
ADD AUTUMNAL HUES
The easiest way to bring your home into the new season is to replace those summery brights and muted beige colourways for typical tonal shades synonymous with autumn. Think rusty reds, burnt oranges and mustard yellows for an on-trend upgrade.

Let's face it, British weather can be rather unpleasant and while we hope for gloriously sunny but cold days, the reality can be dark days and biting temperatures worthy of the depths of winter. Stocking up on thick duvets, chunky knit throws and cushions you can sink into, will suddenly make autumn far more enjoyable.

There's nothing worse than dragging yourself out of the warm comfort of your bed on cold mornings. But kitting out your bedroom with sleep-inducing bedding and enveloping surroundings will make that alarm call less painful.

BRING THE OUTSIDE IN
A surefire way to get your home autumn-ready is to make the most of your surroundings. While the blooming splendour of summer may have come to an end, autumn is the season of spectacular colours. From muted pampas grass to fragrant honeysuckle, you can easily build a beautiful wreath or arrangement that can be dried out and re-used.

SET THE TABLE
While alfresco dining may be coming to an end, breaking bread with the family can be as memorable in autumn. BBQs and salads are swiftly replaced with cosy stews and roast dinners and what better way to bring everyone together than over some new tableware?
