Time to cosy up for the Winter!
That cool change has ascended upon us and we are well and truly in the midst of Winter!
Like us, are you finding it hard to get out of bed in the mornings and then just can’t wait to jump back into bed at night time? We're willing to bet that your thicker winter doona has made its way out of the linen cupboard and extra layers have been added to the bed, so you can burrito wrap yourself in them during the night!
So in honour of this cooler time of the year, this month we're here to give you some tips and simple ways to cosy up your interiors with just a few small changes...
The first, and we think the most important, element to help cosy up your space!
Although this is something we like to include all year round in our interiors, it just seems more crucial during those cooler wintery months.
Texture injects warmth to any space and can be added through different homeware pieces;
- Cushions - With countless options out there of colour, patterns and materials for cushions, these are a great quick way to change up your interior. Swap out your lighter coloured current ones and introduce warmer tones and deeper hues during Winter and don't forget to add cushions with textured detailing, like fringing, tassels etc.
We are currently loving the mix of earthy tones like ochre and neutrals, paired with the deep richness of a forest green or deep navy blues.
*Tip: Use different size cushions grouped together to give your space the illusion of depth
- Throw blankets - not only look great, but are practical too! Also another very simple way to include texture, so swap out your light linen throws for a warm chunky wool knit during Winter and make cosying up on the lounge even more enjoyable!
- Floor rugs - Although this may be a more costly change, adding a floor rug immediately adds warmth to the room, both visually and physically.
There are so many options out there now in terms of materials; from wool to heat-set polypropylene and jute to cotton. Gone are the days where your rug has to be plain and boring, because nowadays a patterned rug is the hero piece to a room and the inspiration to your accessory colour palette.
There is nothing more inviting than a home that smells incredible as soon as you walk through the front door. Candles come in an array of different scents, so whether you are a sweet person, you like the woody textures or you want your home smelling fresh, there is ought to be a candle out there for you! Plus, their soft warm light also creates a super cosy feel to a room.
We love nothing more than the ambience that is provided through lamps. Whether that be a lamp sitting on a side table next to your sofa or a floor lamp positioned in the corner of a room; they are the perfect piece to style with if you want to add some mood to your interior. Remember to use a 'warm' toned bulb when creating that soft evening glow!
Want to add texture too through lamps? Opt for a lamp that has a rattan/woven shade, this will not only be a textural change, it will also add character as the shadows play off your walls.
There we have it! Just a few, quick changes you can make in your home this month to help warm up your space. Visually and physically!
It will make enduring those shorter days and long chilling evenings that much easier.
