6 Best Autumn

Decorating Tips and Ideas The return of cooler temperatures, Autumn colors, and nature changing before our eyes is all the evidence we need that autumn is officially here. Adding autumn touches of décor to your home will help you transition into the new season with excitement of the passing of the year. From the exterior to the interior of your home, Autumn décor colors can be rich and robust or subtle and subdued. Choose your style and see how these six decorating tips and ideas will make you want to jump into a pile of leaves to celebrate autumn! 1. Display artwork that depicts autumn themes/colors: In your front foyer or located on a predominate wall; autumn artwork can change the mood in your home instantly. Consider nature themes with fall colors in oranges, rusts, and golden yellows. If you prefer more abstract art, oil paintings with browns, reds, and burnt umber will make a statement without being obvious. 2. Use your fireplace to showcase seasonal décor: Your fireplace mantel has been waiting for this season! Whether you look in your yard, or you travel to an arts and crafts store, dried leaves and pine cones make great décor. Small pumpkins or dried leaf vines, and colorful candles will brighten your mantle and spirits. 3. Cooler temperatures mean cozy sitting areas: As the temperatures begin to fall, bring out the autumn colored throw

blankets to place on couches or in adjacent baskets. Complimenting autumn colored throw pillows will complete any cozy nook for you to cuddle up and enjoy a good book. 4. Bring the aromas of fall into your home: Autumn decor can be visual but it also involve your other senses like smell. Pumpkin pies, cinnamon apple cider, and first burning of your fireplace are all welcome aromatic ways to make your home feel

full of autumn inspiration. Consider using candles, incense, or boil a pot of spices – cinnamon sticks, cloves, and nutmeg to instantly transport your home into fall mode. 5. Use your imagination with autumn D.I.Y. projects: Autumn is the perfect time to visit home improvement stores and arts and crafts stores for inspiration. Look for workshops and home decorating tips being offered for free at these locations. Autumn

decorating cable television programs on home improvement networks are also a good resource for grabbing inspiration. 6. Change slipcovers over furniture for simple color change: Colorful slipcovers can quickly and inexpensively add color to any room. Slipcovers can be formal or casual depending on the weight of the fabric and color. Decide on which fits your décor, and consider formal dining room chair slipcovers, as well.

Benefits of bikes... Why should I cycle? Good for you...

* Regular cyclists enjoy a fitness level equal to that of a person ten years younger. * Cycling at least twenty miles a week reduces the risk of heart disease to less than half that for non-cyclists who take no other exercise

Good For Your Wallet...

* Bicycles require no road tax, no MOT, no insurance, no licensing, no breakdown recovery services, and above all no fuel bills. * A good bicycle needs at most about ÂŁ50worth of maintenance a year - less if you do a bit yourself. * A good bicycle will last for years, if not decades. * A bicycle can be parked just about anywhere, so no more expensive car park bills.
