eBay’s Rachel Miles shares her tips on how you can make your own cosy this season.

As the air grows crisper and the nights darken, you'll want to curate your own cosy haven to snuggle into. With the help of eBay, you can effortlessly achieve that autumnal aesthetic. eBay’s own home and garden expert Rachel Miles shares lighting tips, interior layering strategies and the most inviting tones to warm up your home. 


6 tips on how to make your own cosy from Rachel Miles

1 - Crafting a rich colour palette for your home is a seasonal essential. Maroon, deep red and green are synonymous with autumn, and you can infuse these in simple ways with a splash of paint. You can even make your bed a cosy haven by choosing bedding in seasonal tones. Shop the trend here.

2 - Update your artwork with autumnal images and colour palettes to add a touch of warmth to your walls this season. You can find a vast selection of one-of-a-kind artwork on eBay, so welcome in your dream autumnal piece and add some creativity to your cosy space.

3 - Treat yourself to a new lamp or lampshade to create softer lighting. This is the ideal starting point for improving the atmosphere of your home, and mastering the art of ambiance can transform your space into an autumnal retreat. 


4 - To save energy, check the rating on your lightbulb. Can you opt for a lower wattage to help you protect the planet and create your own cosy at the same time? 

5 - Layered textures have the ability to invite autumn in like nothing else. Experiment with cosy covers such as teddy, borg, faux fur throws and blankets to add the snuggle factor into your home and infuse warmth into your space.


6 - Shelter from the rainy days and cold nights by creating an area dedicated to snuggling up and staying warm. Add a soft, textured rug, some comfy cushions and a warm pop of colour to your favourite spot in your home and you will have your own cosy zone in no time.
