Although it seemed like Summer had returned earlier this week, it’s well and truly Autumnal here in Yorkshire today. It’s that time of year where the nights are drawing in (yes, I know, I sound like my Grandma) and its getting rather chilly. Weekends are now all about walks in the crisp Autumnal outdoors (or, if you live in Yorkshire like me, on a beautiful but rainy moor). It’s time to layer up your house; sheepskins, cushions, blankets all add depth, warmth and texture. I promise they’ll help make your home feel cosy and welcoming in the cooler months to come.

Throws are also a great way to spruce up a room that has been neglected a little over the summer, or to add a pop of colour to an under-used reading space. This week’s Design Edit brings you a selection of fabulously colourful throws, all from local independent retailers. Take a look and let me know your favourite…

#1 A classic herringbone in a contemporary colourway, from Bronte by Moon,

#2 Gorgeous pastels with this mint throw from Adriana Homeware,

#3 Beautifully bright, another from Bronte by Moon,

#4 A recent discovery for me, fabulous pattern from Anna-Lisa Smith,
#5 Just look at that colour & pattern combination, from British Blanket company

#6 Another from Anna-Lisa Smith, beautiful colour and subtle pattern. Perfect for a child’s bedroom perhaps?
