Baby, it’s cold outside, but inside you can create a wonderfully warm and comfy retreat this winter. So, say goodbye to the winter blues and get your home ready for the seasons ahead with our top tips for the ultimate in stylish living and the latest winter trends.
Swop your drapes and linen!
Pack away your summer curtains and linens for more durable textiles that will absorb heat and help you create a cosier environment. From the bedroom to the living room, thick drapes are ideal for the colder months, so say goodbye to your thin, transparent curtains until next summer!
Add an area rug or two!
Cosy up your interior with beautifully plush textures and rugs that will add warmth underfoot. If your home boasts tiles or wooden flooring, this can become a cold space in the winter months. Bring some comfort to your abode with a striking area rug that will not only soften your space but create a softer, cosier retreat.
Winter colours are here.
In summer you may love brighter shades of white, pink and even yellow. Winter is the perfect time for more dramatic and darker shades that will keep the warmth indoors. Think deep reds, black, orange and gold for a perfect winter combination indoors.
Light it up!
Now’s the perfect time to dust off the fireplace and ensure that it is in perfect working condition. Nothing says warm winter living better than a fire glistening in your living room. If you don’t have one, perhaps it is time to consider the investment and purchase a quality fireplace to suit your space. These beauties can be installed in just about any room of the house. Imagine your own personal furnace in the bedroom on a colder winter’s night!
Thinks throws, scatters and extra blankets for added comfort in your home. Not only will these bring a sense of warmth to your abode but the softer textures will go a long way in creating a welcoming space that would be ideal for cuddling on a colder evening.
Lighting and candles
Be sure to invest in soft lighting and candles that bring an enchanting ambiance to your home – ideal for winter. The soft glow of a candle will add to the cosiness of your space. You may even consider scented candles for a well-rounded experience to satisfy all the senses!
