Warm Neutrals for Autumn

Author: Naomi Liddell

My husband hates cushions. Namely, copious amounts of cushions on beds. But sucks for him, because we just bought a new daybed for guests and that thing is getting covered in cushions. As all daybeds should be. My eye is being drawn reluctantly away from grey lately and towards neutrals on the warmer end of the spectrum. Creams, mustards, terracotta and the like. Which I think is perfectly timed for the fact that the trees around my house are starting to shed their leaves (so sad). That’s right, Autumn draws near and it’s time to start thinking ahead to cosying up those spaces whilst we soak up the last of the summer sun. That’s where my head is at anyway, so if you fancy a bit of online/window shopping, have a look at what I’ve found. One product, in particular, has blown my mind…



Of which, Gavin can’t have too little and I can’t have too many. Cushions just make any space look warm to me and invite the kind of slumping and loafing that we like to do in our house. Am I the only one with a partner with a dislike for cushions? For this new daybed, I’m thinking an array of warm neutrals with textures and prints to add interest but keep the colour scheme cohesive.

My eldest, Ethan recently told me that he always feels cold when he comes downstairs and cuddles on the couch in the morning. Which to me is a cue to buy copious amounts of throws to store in a large woven basket for the comfort/care of my children (read: style). You know I don’t have a single decent throw in my house? This Autumn/Winter, that needs to change. Here are a few of the internet ones catching my eye right now. I know some might seem a bit, well, plain. But I do love a simple throw with beautiful luxe texture.

Now I wouldn’t go recommending you candles that I had not smelled with my own nose. It’s tempting sometimes to round up stunning looking candles, without having actually sniffed them. But I can 100% vouch that these three smell divine! And when I said there was a product in this post that blows my mind? I was talking about the Neom (I’m utterly obsessed with Neom) Real Luxury Skin Treatment Scented Candle. It’s a bit of a mouthful for a product name, but understandably so. This is a candle that you burn to fill the room with delicious fragrance, but THEN you pour a few drops of the wax onto your hands and use it as a warm massage oil for your body!! Mind blown. The little video with the Neom founder is worth a watch. The little vessel this candle(?) comes in is just beautiful and I think it’s quite possibly the ultimate pamper gift for someone who needs a bit of TLC.

Are you straying from grey?

And have you ever seen anything as genius as that Neom candle?

  1. Ooh, re throws do you know Weaver Green? I know you like sustainable living, and I like that these are made from plastic bottles. I have seen them in the flesh and you would never know, they really do feel like wool, no plasticky-ness at all (definitely a word…!). And you can justify their products as indoor and outdoor suitable (and child proof) as fully washable. Whoop!

    I have to say I have never been a neutral accessories person, I adore colour, so my cushions are in all sorts of bright shades as they make me feel better no matter how hot, cold, wet or windy outside. I find cushions can be justified as useful for building forts, dens, creating a sort landing for jumping etc. Really they are absolutely essential for the children :). Saying that we don’t have loads, but enough to brighten most rooms. That Neom candle sounds very cool! I love the idea of it being dual purpose. I’m not really a candle person sadly but the idea is fun!

    1. I’ve never heard of Weaver Green Annie but what a cool concept and name?! I must give them a wee browse later. And yes, cushions are absolutely necessary for forts. Although, I have a couple of fancy ones that are banned from fort building!

    2. Thanks for the Weaver Green tip Annie, their throws are gorgeous, and I love that they’re eco friendly and British, win win win!!
