    THINGS WE ARE LOVING RIGHT NOW AT HOME FOR AUTUMN

    As we have previously mentioned (about a 100 times already on this blog) Autumn is our favourite season and whilst we love a wardrobe update, the Autumn leaves and our trusty PSL, we are true homebodies at heart. So of course, we update our homes to reflect our Autumn mood with simple decor changes that are super easy to integrate. We thought we would share with you all the things we are loving at home this month...

    Faux fur and knit blankets

    Making our homes feel cosy is what we love most at Pretty You London. Faux fur and cable knit blankets are the easiest way to do this. Get curled up on the sofa wrapped in a blanket and let the Netflix binge commence...

    Candles

    Is it even Autumn if you don't come home get in your comfies and light a candle? There are an abundance of seasonal appropriate scented candles, of course we love the classic pumpkin spiced, but we also adore warm vanillas and sandwoods.

    Autumnal Mugs

    If you don't have a cupboard full of mis-matched mugs then you can officially deem yourself more polished than the rest of us. Each Autumn we get a new mug to commemorate the return of our love and this year will be no exception. Getting out our new mug making ourselves a pumpkin spiced latte and getting snuggled on the couch is our idea of bliss.

    Bubble Bath

    When the colder nights start to set in we adore getting a warm (who are we kidding, boiling hot) bubble bath, with the candles lit, a good book and possibly a cheeky glass of wine! It helps us relax after a long day whilst simultaneously warming our bones through, as our grandmothers would say... 

    Pretty You Pyjamas

    Of course we couldn't not mention our gorgeous nightwear. Our bamboo was loved so much by all of you we have now made it part of our core collection, so it is still available all through Autumn & Winter along with our new beautifully cosy stripe nightwear... (launching soon!)

    Door Mat

    Whilst this may seem like an odd one, we have been loving our Autumn themed door mats. Having a cute little greeting to welcome you home never fails to put a smile on our face, who wouldn't love coming home to that everyday?

    Autumnal Wall Art

    As we change some of the decor in our homes to match the change in the leaves, our wall art is no exception. Whether you personally prefer prints or more 3D pieces, we love to update it for the season and you'd be surprised at how much of a difference it can make to the look and feel of your home.

     Fluffy Cushions

    The cushions on our sofa need updating every once in a while and in the Autumn we love to add some fluffy ones, usually in seasonal tones such as cream and camels, that pair beautifully with berries and greys... (and some velvet ones never goes a miss).

    Brushed Cotton Bedding

    While fresh bedding in general always makes us love our beds even more than we thought possible, in the Autumn and Winter months we love switching to a brushed cotton for a more cosy feel. Trust us when we say it truly feels as though you're sleeping in a cloud.

    Slippers

    Last but certainly not least, is of course our slippers! Getting home and slipping them on instantly gives us that perfect relaxed 'at home' feeling... our new collection is full of super soft faux furs and gorgeous velvets making them cosier than ever!

    PARISIAN CHIC INTERIOR INSPIRATION FOR YOUR HOME

    We love nothing more than a beautifully romantic parisian style interior, there is something so effortless about them, but at the same time they seem stunningly thought out and arranged. Regardless of Carrie Bradshaw's disastrous fantasy crumbling before us, our fantasy of living in Paris, surrounded by beautiful style, architecture and lots of cute coffee shops, has never been ruined. Most of us however will never live in Paris, so instead we can take inspiration from their gorgeously chic homes and incorporate their style into our home.

    Think soft muted colour palettes, with lots of tufted button furniture and metallic accents. Add light furniture for a more feminine look, or darker furniture for a richer feel. To stylise the parisian chic look in a more modern way add some mirrored furniture to pull together your new parisian style perfectly.

    What part of your home would you love to give a parisian chic makeover? Let us know in the comments below! For us it would definitely be our vanity... add a gorgeous glam pair of slippers underneath our chairs and our dream instantly becomes reality! Until next time pretties...

    STYLING YOUR COFFEE TABLE LIKE A PRO

    Your coffee table is an integral part of your living space. We practically live our lives around it, so it is important that it represents us. Whether we like a lot of colour, what are hobbies are, what is sentimental to us, etc. A lot can be said about a person from a quick glance at their coffee table, so it is important we get it right.

    Read our top tips below to getting your coffee table looking as perfect as you do, for the next time you have someone round to your home.

    Have a vision

    You need to have a clear visualisation of your living space and think clearly what would tie different elements of the room together. Do you have a lot of silver and gold accents throughout your home? Do have a particular colour you're trying to accent? Incorporate your pre-existing theme into one or 2 statement pieces on your table.

    Source Inspiration

    Nothing beats good old Pinterest for some gorgeous interior inspiration. Create a board of all the coffee tables that you like / find inspiring so that you can easily refer back to it when you're a) buying new pieces and b) styling and arranging your coffee table.

    Introduce your personality

    The easiest way incorporate some of your personality is through the use of books, are you really into fashion, interiors, photography, nature? Get a few books together that you love aesthetically and get to stacking... after all, they don't call them 'coffee table books' for nothing. You can also have something personal and sentimental as a good conversational piece on your table. Possibly a family heirloom, an item that you collect or something from one of your travels.

    Create balance

    Life is all about balance, and when it comes to styling your coffee table, it's no different. Create a visual masterpiece by having fun juxtapositions, aka. if you have something taller on one end, keep the other end low, if you have a something rectangular, having something else circular... and you get the picture. A Pinterest worthy coffee table is all about having the right amount of elements and how they look cohesively as one.

    Get yourself a tray 

    Welcome to coffee table styling 101. If you don't yet have a tray, you need to get one. Be considerate with which one you choose as it will be the foundation that brings a lot of your pieces together as one component. A tray can also help distinguish your interior style. A plain white tray with give you a modern sleek feeling, whereas a gold mirrored tray will give you something more eclectic and chic.

    Empty space

    Once you've nailed the aesthetic styling of your coffee table you need to ensure it actually functions the way it is supposed to. You need some empty space for tv remotes and your coasters! So that you can actually put a cup of coffee down on it. How much empty space you have is completely up to you, subconsciously your coffee table will probably more cluttered or more minimal naturally, depending on your personality through the styling process.

    There you have it, how to style your coffee table to perfectly showcase your wonderful personality and interior design goddess abilities. If you have anything on your table that you think is particularly fab that we failed to mention, let us and everyone else know in the comments below!

    HOW TO GIVE YOUR INTERIORS A LUXE UPDATE FOR AUTUMN

    As the colder months hit I think it is fair to say we all run straight from the office back to the warm cozy comfort of our homes and jump straight into our slippers and pjs. So whilst we are spending so much more time there it deserves a little attention. Here at Pretty You we are all about the gorgeous luxe feel, and that is not different when it comes to our love for interiors, so we are going to run you through our top 3 ways to update your interiors to give them a more luxury feel for the Autumn.
    ___
    Velvet features
    The easiest way to give your home a luxury touch this Autumn is to simply add some velvet. Our favourite way is through the use of a statement couch or chair, and to make it even more interior designer worthy, have it in a bold colour, one that compliments the rest of the interior. If you don't feel ready to commit to such a large piece then the perfect more subtle alternative is to add some jewel toned cushions for just a hint of luxe. After all, you don't see velvet all over Pinterest for nothing...
    ___
    Faux fur accents
    Autumn is one of the two colder months so of course we have to bring out the faux fur... faux fur throws, faux fur cushions, faux fur chairs, you name it, if it comes in faux fur and it matches our interior colour scheme, you can bet we are getting it/already have it.
    It is a beautiful way to add some luxury vibes, but also it helps add some coziness to the room. As who doesn't want to warm and cosy snuggled up indoors, when it is pouring with rain and only 2 degrees outside?! So we highly advise bringing out the faux fur to elevate your luxe cozy Autumn inspired interiors.
    ___
    Mixing metals
    Ahhh, mixed metals... this is one we think may send some of your into a frenzy of pure horror, but hear us out! It looks expensive... that's it. Most interior designers use this as a method of adding a more luxury feel to your space without it being too loud of a statement, such as a bright purple velvet couch for example. For those of you that like something more subtle, and this is by far the easiest method, try this and see how you it transforms and elevates your new Autumn interior.
    ___
    Hopefully you find the above dreamy interior photos as inspirational as we do and they motivate you to give your home an updated luxe feel.
    Whilst we love all 3 of these methods there is several inspirational photos above that include all 3! And their homes are most definitely Pinterest gold, so don't be afraid to incorporate all of them and be bold with your choices! Also let us know in the comments below if you have any other ways that you will updating your homes with this Autumn...
