As the days, weeks and months go by, so do the seasons. The weather is cooling down and the coats are coming out of storage. All of a sudden we are craving the warm comfort of food while snuggled up in blankets… yup winter is just around the corner!
It’s a lot easier to ward off those winter blues when your home feels cosy and inviting. So how can you spice up your old summer look into a blissful winter haven.
By following these 5 simple tips!
Tip One: Bring In The Warm Tones
As winter approaches, it’s time to say goodbye to the whites and blights and bring in the rich and warming tones…
Now the good news is, you don’t have to repaint your entire home and give it a massive makeover… adding pops of warmer colours such as olive green, dusty pinks, mustard, burgundy, deep reds and browns. These shades really add depth and richness. By adding these colours to the likes of pillows, rugs, vases, throw blankets or curtains can make a cosy difference to your space.
Tip Two: Seasonal Scents
Flooding your home with inviting scents with a combination of candles, diffusers, and room sprays. You just can’t go wrong with adding winter scents around the house. A spicy cinnamon or toasted vanilla is a go to for wanting to keep the space feeling warm and cosy.
Oh and you can never have too many candles!
Tip Three: It’s All In The Lighting
Make your home feel cosier by implementing softer lighting. This brings out a warmer environment to relax in!
Tip Four: Cover Up Hard Floors
Hardwood or tiled floors are not only chilly on your feet in the winter but they also don’t hold any heat… an easier and effective way to cosy up your home in winter is to invest in some rugs!
Tip Five: Play With Texture
Incorporating warm, rich textures is key to creating that cosy feel. This means having plenty of blankets and pillows all through out the house! Think, shaggy throws, thick knits and faux fur.
