The arrival of autumn used to fill me with immense sadness. It marked the end of long, warm sunny days and it was the harbinger of the cold, dark days of winter. The year was dying before my eyes.
Over the years, my view of this dreaded season has changed. There has been a gradual reappraisal. The wedding photos of a work colleague certainly quickened the pace. Her white dress set against the dazzling copper and burnt gold of the trees was stunning.
Although I am still sad to see the summer end, the autumn is now an exciting new chapter in the year. Crunching through woods, spying squirrels busily gathering chestnuts and wrapping up in a toasty blanket in front of a fire is so lovely.
There are some truly gorgeous home accessories that capture this magical season.
