As we slowly creep through Autumn towards Winter I love to cosy up the house in readiness for cooler days and nights.  A scroll through some favourite images of eclectic country decor has me feeling not so sad that summer has come and gone and has me looking forward to spending time indoors.  How are you going to spend your winter?  Out and about enjoying the crisp cool air or tucked up inside beside the fire with a good book and endless movies...

Flowers brighten up any living space even in winter, if you haven't got the real thing in your garden why not opt for silk flowers, they are so realistic these days you can hardly tell the difference.

Rugs can help warm up a room.  Persian style rugs introduce colour and pattern as well as defining 'zones' within your space.  Timeless and elegant, they suit most types of decor.  And don't forget throw blankets to keep you warm as well as to add some interest to your sofa.

Or you may like a little 'granny' rag rug, don't be afraid to layer your rugs (as long as they aren't too thick or fluffy) for a relaxed look.  However you do it, enjoy your South Coast winter, it won't be around long and before you know it summer skies will be overhead again.
