Winter is here, and it’s officially the time to get cosy! Enjoying a cosy, country vibe at home is on the menu for most during winter. But whether you live in an older property or a plush new build, there are a few ways that you can add your own winter-friendly, rustic touches without breaking the bank.
With the following simple décor hacks, you can transform your home just in time for winter and enjoy the cosiest season of them all in the most wonderful way!
Up the snuggle factor in your home
Accessorising a country-inspired space with the softest of soft furnishings will not only feel great (especially on those chilly winter mornings and evenings) but provide a quick and easy way to spruce up a love-worn sofa or armchair.
Blankets, cushions and bedspreads also provide an ideal opportunity to add texture and colour to any room in an instant so you can push your home interior into that coveted comfort zone. Blankets and bedspreads can be lovingly layered to provide even more cosiness as temperatures continue to drop.
Our wool blankets and bedspreads are so simple to take care of too – just read our guide to washing and drying wool blankets – meaning you get to enjoy their softness not just during winter but for many, many seasons to come.
Reconsider your underfoot experience
We experience our interiors in so many different ways, with every part of our body able to be touched with the right interior design scheme. So, when creating that cosy, country vibe that’s well-loved during winter, you’ll want to up your comfort underfoot.
Use texture-rich, super-soft fabrics to line the floors of your home. Layered rugs are great options for hard floors, and will provide a tremendous source of warmth in the depths of winter.
Light up your space – the cosy way
Lighting plays a bigger role than most people think, and when lighting up your space for winter, ambient, low level candlelight is best.
With our collection of candles and candle holders, you can embrace a softer, country-inspired scheme in any room of your home to make those darker evenings cosier than ever.
Dress your windows with winter in mind
Your window treatments need to be adapted to offer the warmth and security everyone craves during those winter months.
Swap light, thin curtains or voiles for heavily lined alternatives that provide a beautiful decorative touch as well as an excellent way to insulate the room and keep cold air outside where it belongs.
Finish with a beautiful floral flourish
Using fresh flowers to decorate the home may be synonymous with the lighter, brighter spring and summer months, but there are plenty of beautiful blooms ripe for picking during winter too.
A well-placed seasonal bouquet will work wonders for your new, country-inspired interior as Emma & 3 explains:
“Fresh flowers in a cream porcelain vase are another great finishing touch to add to your kitchen. With the beautiful scent from the flowers adding a fresh, welcoming feel, you can also emphasise the country style by bringing the outdoors, in!”
