Cosy Up your Home
The cold will soon take a permanent hold as we slowly transition into winter. You can find relief from the winter chill with a few cosy tweaks that will make your home a toasty winter wonderland.
Create a sense of warmth through your colour palette. For a chic, modern look, play around with high contrast colours that create a bit of drama. Having winter plants such as peace lilies or azaleas will also liven up your home with colour, clean air and gentle floral fragrances.
Florals remain trendy, especially boldly printed florals. Bring the sense of springtime into your space by featuring florals on your cushions or bedding. Keep your prints from being too overpowering by pairing them with simple furniture and accessories.
Another bold choice is introducing a statement piece to your home. Statement pieces act as a conversation starter for when everyone is huddled indoors. Change things up with an interesting light fixture or go big with a bold couch or large abstract artwork.
Keep cosy on cold winter nights by investing in proper bedding. Turn your bed into a hotel-like heaven by layering up with sheets, blankets, duvets and high-thread-count linen. The trick is to insulate your bed from the mattress up. For extra warmth, add a knitted, flannel or fleece throw.
You don’t need to do it all but a few simple additions to your home, are guaranteed to transform it into a cosy winter haven.
