Welcome Autumn in all your beautiful glory, saying goodbye to Summer is bittersweet but when the new season is in full swing I find myself ready to be embraced by its colours, scents and coolness, darker mornings and ebbing sunsets. Time to turn your attention to your home, your sanctuary, your space. Bring out the blankets, soft wool knits, candles and handmade receptacles to put them in to place around your home. Adding texture and warmth with each new addition.
Rowen & Wren have added some new pieces to their Autumn collection, these new arrivals have all their hallmarks, an understated palette, great design and accomplished craftsmanship. I can’t resist adding a new piece of two to my home as the seasons change and Rowen & Wren are always a place to find the things I need. Their attention to detail along with the handmade nature of each piece you can’t help treating yourself. It’s the perfect place to get ideas for gifts along the way and I know a few people who would love the handmade stoneware tealight holders. They brighten any table setting or mantle piece, each one slightly different to the next.
Creating a cosy corner to curl up in is a joy at this time of year, layering your furniture with throws and cushions that are soft and comforting. The Gretel lambswool cushion blends in so very well with my furniture, it’s as if it has always been. Handmade from a hundred percent lambs wool yarn in Hampshire, the subtle pattern would look as much at home in a contemporary setting as in a country cottage.
Their attention to detail in everything they create is why I admire Rowen & Wren so much. From the understated table linen, such as the cutlery pocket napkins that will add a soft Scandinavian understatement to any gathering, to the warming tactile curly hide of the Gotland sheepskin, keeping us toasty on our beds or thrown over dining chairs to keep you snug on a cold winters evening.
I simple couldn’t resists the cashmere hand warmers, I always loose gloves by having to take them on and off when completing tasks outdoors but with hand warmers your fingers are free so no more on and off and lost gloves, just warm hands. These are definitely on my present list for a few special folk that I know.
Everything that Rowen & Wren produce is well thought out, precise understated details met, bringing beauty in the everyday to your home. I hope you love browsing through their collection as much as I do and if by chance you see something that catches your eye then I have a wonderful discount offer to make that treat even more delicious.
