Let’s Get Cosy

If you were looking for an invitation to add more accessories and decor to your space, winter has just given you the permission you were looking for.

Cosy up your space by adding blankets, throw rugs, cushions, and pillows to your living space. By doing so, you’re not only adding warmth to your space, but you’re also adding layers of depth by using colours, patterns, and textures. These things combined make for the ultimate Winter interior. Think hot chocolates, good food, a romance movie, and keeping warm beneath blankets and pillows while enjoying the crackle of the fire.

Additionally, you can light a couple of candles to warm up your space even further. Candles create a warm and inviting ambiance, perfect for Winter evenings.

Winter is also the time to ditch those thin summer curtains and upgrade to something a little more substantial. Not only will it help keep the heat in, but it will also add another layer of cosiness to your Winter interior styling. We recommend opting for block-out curtains or blinds to keep the cold out and the heat in.

 

 

Fabrics & Colour

Winter is the perfect time to bring out rich and luxurious fabrics. Swap out your light cotton sheets for flannel or velvet. Layer up your bedlinen, and add a few plush throws to your sofa to ensure you stay warm regardless of what room of the house you’re in.

Winter is also your invitation to switch out your Summer pastels and embrace darker hues instead. Experiment with moodier colours, such as deep greens, mustards, blues, and purples. These colours will make your space feel cosier, while also adding a touch of glamour to your interior.

While on the subject of colour, add a bit of luxury to your Winter space by incorporating timber tones. Rich and warm timber furniture and accessories will help to create a warm and inviting space to escape the chilly Winter air.

Layer Rugs

No one likes getting cold feet during those middle-of-the-night nature calls. So, layer rugs throughout your home, especially in bedrooms and bathrooms. This will help keep your feet warm and toasty and give your interior a layer of depth to the space.

Layering rugs are also incredible for defining ‘zones’ in your home. You will notice overlapping rugs in large living spaces that share multiple purposes. For example, you may have a living room rug that defines the area for winding down and watching tv. However, you may have a piano in that same space and style another floor rug to determine the music ‘zone.’

Rug layering is becoming increasingly popular among interiors. Still, winter is when this form of styling truly shines.

Creating the Mood

Expand your home’s visual landscape and make it feel winter-ready by investing in a diffuser. Diffusers can help humidify a space while emitting popular winter scents such as lavender, spicy cinnamon, evergreen, and vanilla. These scents will not only make your home smell amazing but will also help you to feel more relaxed and cosy.

Another great options that has high impact without a huge cost, is by adding some mood lighting. This can be done through lamps, string lights, or even candles. Adding dim lighting will help create an intimate, warm, and cosy atmosphere.

Ever considered investing in a portable fireplace? Portable fireplaces come in various shapes, sizes, and styles and can be used indoors or outdoors. They’re also relatively inexpensive, making them the perfect winter addition to any home.

Reconsider & Rearrange

With shorter, darker days, people are less likely to want to venture out of their warm and safe abodes, so we recommend changing the furniture to make your home feel cosy and inviting for welcoming guests. Bring chairs and couches closer together to create a “conversation pit.” Doing so will make your space feel more intimate and inviting. It’s also a great way to socialise while staying comfortable in your Winter trackies.

Winter is also the perfect excuse to add furniture to empty corners and bare walls. Think occasional chairs in bedroom corners, entry tables in hallways, and bookshelves in living spaces. All of which will add to that winter-warmth interior styling we’re aiming for.

Don’t forget to add some colour. Adding greenery and florals to your home will liven up any space so, grab your favourite vase, native flowers, and foliage and add a splash of colour.

Winter is the perfect time to cosy up your home and make it your own personal oasis. You can transform your space into a winter wonderland that you’ll never want to leave by following these simple tips!
