Well Autumn is upon us.  The days are getting shorter and we all know that Winter is right around the corner.  No need to worry, Autumn has a lot to offer. Here are the best ways to get the most out of Autumn before Winter sets in.



Change of Season Clothing

After a long hot Summer here in Australia it’s nice to start to layer up with clothing as we transition into the cooler months.  This is the perfect time to re evaluate your wardrobe and embrace the trans seasonal fashion.  Think cardigans, sleeveless jackets and jeans.  This is a fun time of the year to prepare your wardrobe and get ready for Winter.

Seasonal Fruit and Vegetables and Flowers

It’s about this time of year that the Summer fruits and vegetables start to disappear . What a great time to try new recipes and re do your meal plan. Fruits like mandarins, pears, passionfruit and oranges are beautiful in Autumn.  Brussel Sprouts, cauliflower, pumpkin are just a few beautiful vegetables that are in season. Create new recipes and keep your weekly dinners interesting.


Get Out Of The House

The air has a slight chill to it, it’s not too hot nor is it too cold so get outside.  Embrace the season by getting outdoors.  Fresh air is so good for you and there is nothing better that enjoying the outdoors with friends and family.  Getting a builder like Altec to add a patio, enclosure or screen is a great way to extend your time outside.  Autumn is a great time to get these bigger jobs done whilst the weather isn’t to inclement.

Autumn is not only the time to change your fashion personally but also for your home.  Think warmers layers for those cooler nights.  Textures play a part too as well as the warmer colour palettes you may choose.  Have fun with your decor and bring out those throws you’ve had stowed away.


Tune Into The Transformation

Admire the shades of leaves.  Tune into the transformation that happens in Autumn, the air, the shorter days, the brighter mornings.  It really is a lovely time of the year.
