Autumn Hues

by Les 100 Ciels Team on October 16, 2020

The world is full of Autumnal hues at this time of year and we’ve got a few ideas for adding a little rustic charm into your life. Browse this week’s post for inspiration on the best ways to add a little Autumn into your life.

Take a walk (or a drive) amongst Autumn leaves

While the UK may be heading into another phase of lockdowns, escaping into nature might be one of the best ways to keep the spirits high and be inspired by Autumn leaves all the while staying socially distant. Some of the best kept secrets are walks or even simply driving through country lanes with a riot of orange and yellow colour. Here are our top three favourite spots:

Langdale Valley in the Lake District
Stourhead Gardens, Wiltshire
Epping Forest, Greater London


Lots of London’s parks are frequented during the Autumn months, such as Hyde Park or Kew Gardens. These are particularly lovely on long treelined avenues on a crisp, sunny day when all the russet and golden hues are shown to full effect. An often forgotten alternative to these sites, are the vast numbers of London cemeteries, which are often a peaceful oasis while also offering up some history. If you’re one for Halloween, then a visit at this time of year to Brompton Cemetery or Abney Park Cemetery will give you all the thrills.

Enjoy Autumn Indoors

If you won't or can't venture out into the Autumn weather for a long walk, then its also the perfect time to bring the season indoors. Autumn bouquets or ornaments around the home add a depth and cosy warmth as the days grow shorter and colder. Make your own from dried flowers, twigs and berry branches or visit your local florist and grab one off the shelf! 
Whether you're indoors or out, enjoy all the colours of Autumn before they are gone! Let us know what you get up to!
