Winter is officially here, and whilst most of us couldn’t be more excited to leave 2020 behind, the season is certainly one that should be celebrated.
Winter is after all the perfect time to hole up and get cosy at home, which makes bringing those seasonal touches to your interior especially important.
Here, we explore the top ways to add those cosy winter touches to your home décor so you can hibernate in style.
Warm up your colour scheme
It’s the season of joy and love, so what better way to promote this than with a warming colour scheme.
You don’t have to go dark with your wall colour to inspire that wintry vibe. Neutral colour schemes will freshen up and warm your home interior.
As well as creating a warm and cosy feel, neutral palettes (like creams and beiges) never go out of fashion, which means your new décor will look great season after season.
Neutral colour schemes can also be updated easily with the right accessories, so you’ll spend less time painting and more time enjoying your beautiful home.
Don’t forget to check out those grey shades when selecting your neutral colour scheme. Country Living reveals how to use grey as a fabulous neutral backdrop for your very own winter wonderland:
“Grey is a particularly popular neutral, taking over from cream and linen shades. Comfortable sofas in classic shapes are a must-have and lots of texture in the form of knitted cushions and a throw, with texture and pattern in the other cushions for interest.
Pouffes make for informal seating or putting your feet up. Wooden floors are softened with a simple cotton rug and deep navy walls are comforting.”
Just add texture
Nothing says winter like touchable home furnishings. Be sure to add interest and texture to your neutral colour scheme with a few cosy touches. Experiment with fibres that you’ve never considered such as velvet, faux fur, and wool.
Wool is particularly comforting during the cooler season, and gives that look of luxury that lasts a lifetime and transcends the trends.
Wool is not only great for your home, it’s great for the planet too. In fact, wool is saving the world thanks to its ethically sourced, cruelty-free, naturally biodegradable, reusable, and renewable status.
Our handcrafted wool blankets and throws are beautiful additions to the lounge, a well-used reading nook, the bedroom or any other part of your home for that matter.
Make a feature of the fireplace
Whether you’ve got a log burner, open fire or an electric fire, creating a cosy spot for you and your family to gather this winter is a must.
Rearrange your furniture to make the fireplace the centrepiece of your winter interior. Not forgetting to enhance the space with plush upholstery and super soft fabrics to add yet more warmth.
Bring the outdoors in
I bet you never thought we’d suggest bringing the outdoors in at this time of year. By going green with your interior, you can create a cosy space that truly makes the most of this beautiful season.
Adding lush greenery to your home interior doesn’t have to cost the earth either. All the family can get involved in a foraging mission, sourcing branches and winter buds from the local area for use in vases and on ceiling hooks.
Set the mood
Indulge all your senses with your home interior choices this winter. Team those textured furnishings and accessories with the right lighting to create a cosy ambience that’ll keep you warm all season long.
Keep lighting soft and romantic by investing in some statement candles. Instil that festive vibe further by adding scent to the space courtesy of some well-placed pot pourri, incense, or scented candles.
