Our Top 10 Favourite Things About Autumn

1. Leaves! As the trees turn from green to gorgeous tones or red and burnt orange, we‘re really get that autumn feeling!


2. Hot drinks… think tea, hot chocolate, mulled wine! After a summer spent sipping nothing but Aperol Spritz it’s nice to be able to curl up with a mug of something warm.

3. Talking of something warm… as the temperature drops, it’s time to begin lighting fires again!


4. Bonfire night! Sparklers, fireworks and toffee apples, autumn would not be autumn without bonfire night!


5. Wellies! Now that we’ve well and truly packed our sandals away for the winter, it’s time to start embracing our wellies again.

6. Comfort food! From shepherd’s pie to beef wellington, autumn is a time when you can hibernate and enjoy feasting on warming dishes!

7. Blankets! Finally, the return of the blanket! Gone are the nights of sleeping on top of the duvet, and finding the cool side of the pillow. Now, we can rejoice in the fact that blankets are back to keep us toasty warm.


8. The great outdoors… full of russet red leaves, dog in tow and ripe autumn berries! What’s better than an autumnal day in the countryside?!


9. For us, another event we look forward to this season is Halloween. From pumpkin carving to trick-or-treating, no matter whether you’re young or old, Halloween can be enjoyed by all.


10. Countdown to Christmas! As the shops begin to unveil their Christmas goodies, we can’t help but get a little bit excited at the thought of the imminent festive season!

Heritage Hues: Go for green in the bathroom

As summer draws to a close, we’re preparing ourselves for the winter weather, embracing rich, dark tones to add a cosy element to our homes. Scroll down to get inspired with this new colour palette…



Symbolic of new beginnings, nature and revival, 2017 has been a green year! Re-introduced into interiors by Pantone naming ‘Greenery’ their Colour of the Year, our love of all things green has continued to grow, and as the winter begins we’re embracing this shade in a darker hue.

Whilst most of us are slightly apprehensive at the thought of painting a whole room this dark shade, why not experiment with this olive green in a smaller space, such as the bathroom?

Combine with sleek ceramicware, gold mirrors and some white fluffy towels to create a luxurious bathroom space. And not to forget your flooring! Our Neisha Crosland range of vinyl floor tiles are perfect for adding a sophisticated edge to the space, whilst also being incredibly durable!

Sunflowers! We’d all love to be running through a field covered in sunflowers, sun streaming down on us, but if that’s not an option, why not buy a beautiful bunch for your kitchen!
