Mid September - a feast for the senses!

With the countryside ripe from the late summer sun and the hint of the crisp new season to come our senses are filled with delicious new textures and fragrances. I adore this time of year and love to bring the inspiration of early Autumn into our home. The smell of woodsmoke, subtle shades of misted berries and branches, the warmth of blankets and throws all add to the cosiness that this season brings. With a soft colour palette of Mist, Hay, Fog, Bark, Elderberry, Twig, Spice and Pebble it is a restful retreat for the coming Autumn months. Here are a few of my favourite finds:

Divine hand made linen sachets from Paris filled with a sublime perfume so soft and enveloping it conjures up freshly mown hay warmed by the sun, Autumn spices of cinnamon and star anise and has the merest hint of creamy, spiced hot chocolate - SUBLIME!!!I adore the rustic coconut shell toggle and leather cord, perfect for hanging these sachets from a pretty coat hanger or vintage hook.

The sachet above (on a fireplace in one of our guest bedrooms)is from their "Coco Blanc" collection with the delicious fragrance captured within the most divine crisp white, rustic linen. Place them on top of pillows for a subtle way to fragrance bedlinen and a lovely warm welcome for any house guest!
