8 gloriously autumnal homes to make you glad the new season has arrived

These cosy homes prove autumn is the best season

Autumn is officially here – and with it comes cosy evenings in front of the fire, thick woolly tights
(hurrah!), chunky knits and crisp crumpets.

Plus, it’s the perfect season to enjoy long leafy walks with the thought of snuggling up at home as the evening draws in.

We’re celebrating the start of autumn – also known as the best season ever – with these gloriously cosy homes.

Which one sums up autumn for you?

Lovely leaves

Is there anything more autumnal than this? A cosy home with the first leaves to fall surrounding its exterior. Perfection.

Fire it up

A real fire with feature firewood to match? What a heart-warming sight after a cheek-chilling walk in the woods.

Tea and crumpets

A winning combination for the cooler months – particularly when toasted in front of the fire.

Woodland pattern

This living room has taken autumn to its heart. The leafy prints make a cosy statement of autumnal warmth.

Autumnal entrance

Ah, warm walking boots – a sure-fire autumn weekend sign.

Cosy kitchen

This classic country kitchen is decorated in glorious autumnal pastels. What a treat!

Beautiful bedrooms

Ah, knitwear, a sure-fire sign of the autumn months. There’s no reason your favourite chunky fabric can’t work at home, as this bedroom scheme proves.

Autumn fare

Homemade jams and chutney and a batch of freshly-picked blackberries. What a sight!
