Prepare for winter in style with these decorating tips:
We all know to layer our clothing when it gets chilly outside, but few of us know the same applies to our homes! Layering not only provides extra warmth during wintertime, but is also a great way to incorporate functional winter décor into your space. Layering with blankets, throws, scatter cushions and rugs creates a cosy ambience in your home.
Incorporate a warm colour palette
Combat the winter blues by adding warm colours to your space! Bold, rich, jewel-tone colours add warmth and vibrancy to your home and contrast the dreary winter landscapes outside.
Add cosy textures
Cosy textures are the key to comfort in winter. Plush, plump textures are best for creating a warm and inviting atmosphere in your home.
Natural fibres, such as wool, cashmere, mohair and sheepskin are perfect for layering, adding rich, insulating textures to your space.
Mix and match textured blankets, throws, cushions, and rugs to bring natural elegance to your home in winter.
Update your bedding
Wintertime is an excuse to stay indoors and indulge in much-needed sleep-ins under a warm, cozy duvet!
Medium – heavyweight duvet inners filled with luxury microfibre, feather or down provide extra warmth and comfort, and are an excellent investment for the cold winter months. Trade your summer bedding for a plush duvet to hibernate in style.
When it comes to sheeting, it might be time to swap out your summer set for something a little warmer. While some people enjoy snuggly flannel or fleece, others prefer something silky and luxurious.
Synthetic sheeting is an excellent choice for winter as it traps body heat, keeping you warm and toasty throughout the night. It is also quick drying, which is crucial in winter when sunlight is scarce.
Quilts are excellent layering pieces, and a creative way to add patterns, colour and texture to your bedroom décor, in addition to comfort and warmth.
Whether draped across your couch or the width of your bed, blankets are a versatile winter staple that can be used as functional décor throughout the season. Add pops of colour to your space with bright, cheerful blankets or a warm neutral.
Change your curtains
Updating your curtains is an excellent way to decorate and insulate your home in winter.
For optimum warmth, choose lined curtains made from thick, weighty fabrics like velvet, tapestry, or tweed. Thicker curtains made from heavier, lined fabrics are perfect for winter- blocking out light, trapping heat, and creating a warm and cozy ambiance in your home.
Nothing is quite as cosy as the soft glow of candlelight. Filling your home with candles, or others light sources with a soft, warm, diffused glow, will create a cosy, intimate ambiance in your home.
Add scented candles or diffusers to your home to fill it with your favourite winter-inspired scents so that you can celebrate the season from the comfort of your home.
Is your home winter-ready? With the cooler months fast approaching, now is the perfect time to indulge in a seasonal update of your space.
