Get The Look: 6 interiors buys inspired by Lisa's autumnal living room

Lisa wanted the room to be cosy – and suitable for her three-year-old.

Each week, we step inside a reader’s home, and indulge in some copycat behaviour, creating a shopping list inspired by their interior style.

This week, Lisa Joyce’s (@seoigehome) autumnal mantlepiece was our inspiration.

“We moved in here in March, just before lockdown,” says Lisa. “This had to be a room we could retreat in the evening. I love chilling on the couch crafting with some candles burning.”

“It also needed to be kid-friendly as we have a three-and-a-half year old. Her crafts and jigsaws are all stored in the tv unit.”

EZ Living, Home Focus and TK Maxx were Lisa’s main ports of call when decorating this space. Below are six high street items that’ll help you get the look in your own home… 

1. Leopard print stool, €46.34 (£42), Cult Furniture 

We love Lisa’s printed stool, and this one is a close match.

2. Pumpkin ornament, €23.50, Next

October is just days away, so it’s time to take out the pumpkins. If you’re feeling creative, you could even paint some real ones.

3. Potted plant, €8, Ikea

There’s no such thing as too many plants.
