Something a little different for this week's Colour My Monday post. As it's the start of the half-term school holidays (the end of October, already?) and the weather's definitely changed down here in the South of France I thought I'd show you my nine picks for the Autumn Home Styling Challenge.
A few weeks ago the lovely Helen Evans from the UK's Voucher Codes site contacted me to see if'd be interested in taking part in her Autumn-themed home styling challenge. Helen writes for Voucher Codes' lifestyle magazine Most Wanted. She has invited a number of home decor bloggers to update a room for Autumn using up to 10 items, each under £50. You know I love "finding things" so this challenge was right up my alley.
As you can see, I have chosen to warm up a nursery or a little one's room by adding a few woodland friends and selecting natural materials such as wool, felt, linen and wood in orange, red and brown tones. Set against a backdrop of white, I think these accessories will create an inviting, cosy space for little children throughout the Autumn / Winter months.
Watch out for Helen's round-up post this week showing everyone's picks, I'm sure it'll be full of inspirational and above all affordable finds, and if you're not already acquainted with Helen's site, and you live in the UK, keep your eye out for all the promotional codes, discounts and bargains - it's Christmas soon folks...
