Autumn and Aliens

Settling down on the sofa the other evening & switching on the TV I was struck by how much certain TV shows have become a marker for the time of year. 

I only have to hear the opening notes of the ‘Strictly’ theme tune and I know it’s an autumn evening. It’s the same for ‘BGT’ in the spring and ‘Love Island’ in the summer. All of them as defining of the seasons as daffodils in spring and falling leaves in the autumn.

What’s the current essential viewing for a Sunday evening?

Another bash at ‘The War of The Worlds’. And that got me to thinking how universal the fascination with space and what’s ‘out there’ is across all ages. 

Whether its memories of moon landings, Storm Troopers (I saw one walking through Frome in Wiltshire once, casually browsing the shop windows) or Button Moon.

There really is something for everyone.

‘The War of The Worlds’ reminded me why we created our ‘The Final Frontier’ wallpaper design.

Autumnal Wellbeing

We love our dogs at PaperBoy.

Not least because they get us up ‘n’ stomping around outside. Who can resist Fred and Kodak when they want to go for a blast of fresh air on an autumnal Tuesday afternoon?

There’s no better time of year to enjoy being outside. Thinking about getting home again to stews, log fires and a glass or two of something sustaining.

I get reminded by my daily newsfeed of the impact of our environment on our physical and mental wellbeing and how it’s all about colours and space and calm.  Not sure how they work it out, but apparently our physical environment is responsible for up to 40% of our feelings of wellbeing.

No wonder we feel refreshed after an autumn walk.

Which is funny though as autumn is all about dying and the coming to the end of nature’s year.

Most wellbeing studies focus on the workplace.  We think that there’s no place like home to work on your wellness by introducing a bit of colour and calm to your surroundings.

How about some of our ''ere be dragons' wallpaper in autumnal taupe & burnt orange to get you started.
