Buying wicker to fill the house. From outdoor chairs to rugs and baskets that strike the right balance between practicality and comfort. We love Janus et Cie’s snazzy Katachi outdoor furniture collection, www.janusetcie.com.au
Shopping the sales (which have come early). It’s a great time to look out for household staples in your colour palette.
Filling the house with flowers, (they’re abundant, affordable, and feelgood this month).
Getting the house ready for Christmas (it’s a good excuse to get things fixed, the silver polished, mirrors gleaming, floors waxed).
Buying big pots of white hydrangeas.
Lightening up. Buying crisp white bed linen.
Packing away objects that have been gathering dust, and using shelves to display something light such as stacks of white china.
The Christmas topiary everywhere. It’s a great time to splash out on a pair of matching potted boxwood cones, that you love, for your entry.
Buying gifts, for you, and your friends.
