We love summer for so many reasons, and the hottest season of the year means that many of us pack away our winter woollies for a few months. This, however, doesn’t stop us from using wool and other natural fibres around our homes.
Achieving that cosy feeling at home is one thing we all aspire to do. Most of us, love to be greeted by a warm hug from our home décor, whatever the weather outside.
The cosiest home trends transcend the seasons, that’s why we’re dedicating this blog post to sharing our favourite summer home trends that last long into winter and beyond.
Cushioned with love
Getting tired of your home décor? Don’t reach for the paintbrush just yet. There’s no easier or quicker way to update a space than with a smattering of cushions.
Whilst many people choose to swap out their cushions from season to season, investing in a good quality staple cushion that will last a lifetime is what we’d recommend.
Wool cushions provide comfy, long-lasting, and timeless options for those looking to hit refresh on their home décor and inject a bit of hygge into their lives.
Our wool cushion designs will revitalise a love-worn sofa and make your cosy reading nook even cosier as well as add a pop of colour and texture to any space.
Weave in some jute
Thanks to their intricate woven designs, jute placements, rugs and baskets add colour, texture, character and charm to the home.
Our organic jute homewares may give off that playful summer vibe, but these decorative wonders are built to last and will be with you for the long haul as a result.
Jute is after all one of the hardest wearing natural fibres out there, not to mention completely organic and biodegradable.
Paper but not as you know it
When you think of paper, you don’t think of long-lasting homeware. But as the planet makes the shift to an eco-friendlier way of living, paper products are taking over.
First came the paper straws and shopping bags, then came washable paper placemats. These quirky, simple and elegant designs are great investments, whatever your kitchen or dining room colour scheme.
Our washable paper placemats are long-lasting, stain-resistant and easy to clean making them the perfect fits for busy family homes. They also come in a range of styles including metallic silver, metallic platinum, soft grey, camel, and sage.
Create the cosiest bed
Contrary to popular belief, wool is the perfect bedspread material. It’s temperature regulating, hypoallergenic, dust mite resistant, fire-resistant, natural, chemical-free, and of course comfortably soft. All these plus-points equate to a better night’s sleep, especially if you suffer from a health condition as St. Peter Woolen Mill details:
“If you’re living with fibromyalgia, allergies, arthritis or asthma, it’s even more important to sleep well. Fortunately, with wool, even if you suffer from fibromyalgia or arthritis you will greet the morning with your stiffness and pain lessened or gone altogether. If you have asthma or allergies, you’ll breathe easier at night and wake up rejuvenated instead of exhausted.”
Wool isn’t just for winter either, your wool bedspread’s natural ability to self-regulate temperature makes it a great option for all year round.
