As we bid a fond farewell to the summer months and the brighter colours they bring, it's time to begin preparing our homes and gardens for Autumn and the excitement of the festive season that lies ahead.
The nights seem to be drawing in faster than ever and with a definite nip in the air and the imminent changing of the clocks, it is only natural that we start to retreat indoors in anticipation of warming soups, hot chocolates and cosy afternoons spent reading by crackling log fires.
But blink and this fabulous season can pass us by too easily. Autumn still offers so much for us to enjoy, from woodland walks among leaves the colours of the sunset, to outdoor markets filled with all the smells and sounds of the holidays. It definitely feels like the season for truly appreciating all the fantastic people and places that surround us.
Autumn at The Fig Store means a time to transition to more muted tones and bring in some amazing, natural pieces of homeware as well as some beautiful Christmas decorations which are starting to make their way on to our website in the coming weeks.
So as we head towards candlelit evenings and winter wardrobes let's pause to raise a glass (of mulled wine) to Autumn in all its fleeting glory!
