Just like our wardrobes, our interiors also need a bit of a makeover when a new season comes around. You have probably already dusted off the extra blankets but did you know there are a few other things you can do to make your room cosier for the winter months. Here is a breakdown on how you can make some easy changes that will warm your room all winter long.
Just changing up the colours can even make the space seem warmer. Think dark, muted colours or bold jewel tones.
On-Trend this year:
- Black & Burgundy – These cosy and luxurious colours are everywhere at the moment. To easily incorporate these colours try using coloured cushions, accessories, and throw rugs.
- Rust, Mustards & Berry Tones – Try incorporating these colours through textures, such as velvets, knits, and bed linens for an easy luxe feel.
Layering is also another quick and easy way to ‘cosy up’ the place. Layer your cushions, pillows, throws, and blankets. The latest trend in layering is rugs, particularly in homes with floorboard or tiles. The idea is that ‘more is more’, and to nail this trend you will want to use mix-matching patterns and textures. However, you will want to ensure your rugs are all of similar tones or that the colour complements each other.
If you don’t want to brave the cold and head outdoors, bring outside inside! Indoor plants boost mood, productivity, concentration, and creativity. They also help clear the air of toxins, reduce stress, increase humidity, and produce oxygen. They also look great!
Keep the warmth by covering up your blinds and bare windows with block-out drapery. Layer these with your more decorative curtains. They will help create a cosier feel and protect your room from those cold drafts that sneaky through at night.
Ditch the iridescent bulbs and replace them with warm yellow toned bulbs. Also, be sure to let that sunlight in during the day to help warm up the space.
Change is as good as a holiday (not that any of us will get a holiday this year) so you might even want to re-jig your room. It will give you a fresh approach to the new season.
Another great way to add texture and warmth is by hanging new wall art. Switch up your summery items for a winter-themed painting or photograph. Also, try using a warm or spiced scented candle to add to the winter vibe.
