The leaves are falling, the golden season is upon us and we cannot be alone in finding that the sight of fluttering orange leaves immediately makes us long to don our biggest, our cosiest jumpers, our wellies and go for long woodland walks with the dog. It’s either that or light a fire, pour a glass of red/hot chocolate, put on our PJs and watch an addictively good box set – and frequently all of the above, often in the same day.
To get us in the proper mood for the seasons of mists and mellow fruitfulness, nothing beats an autumnal wreath to spruce up the homestead (nope, they’re not just for Christmas), particularly when juxtaposed against a dark painted door for a wonderful pop of colour. Natural materials abound at this time of year and you can, of course, gather bounty from your autumnal walks and make a resplendent example yourself (do check out Rowen & Wren’s Benni Wreath Ring
for just that purpose). But for those who prefer for someone else to do all the crafty work for them (us), here is our edit of nine of the most beautiful that you can buy, ready to hang straight on your door.
