10 Cosy Things From Zara You NEED In Your Home This Autumn

Autumn is a time for fresh starts and new beginnings, but it is also a time for recuperation. From the crunch of the first falling leaves in the morning to the fresh, chilly winds come the dark evenings, there’s something indescribably pleasant about snuggling under a cosy throw. And even better, getting to give all your treasured surroundings an autumnal revamp – throws and all. When it comes to creating cosiness and warmth, there are a few tips to keep in mind, says Emma Lamb of Lamb Design. Sight, smell, hearing and taste are all key, as is texture. “There are certain textures that are necessary for ensuring a cosy feel in your home. It is very hard for anyone to feel cosy in a home where most surfaces are hard and stark with no soul. Cushions, sheepskins and throws are a great way to add a cosy feel.”

And Zara Home has this in spades in their new AW interior collection. While it’s true that they don’t have a physical store in Ireland (a loss as their stores in Europe are an?Aladdin’s cave of treasures), you can still buy online, and believe me, you’ll want everything come payday. From cashmere to cotton, beautiful linen and decorative pieces – you’ll have your home?looking and feeling so cosy into the winter, that you’ll happily forgo a social life for nights in by the crackling fire.
