As amazing as summer is, there’s something special about cosy nights in curled up on the sofa. With the nights getting darker and the temperatures starting to drop, it’s time to get your home ready for winter. Use some of these simple style tricks to help bring warmth and comfort into your home.
A few simple style tricks can make your home feel cosy this winter. Let's begin.
Choose natural, earthy colours with warm oranges and reds
After a summer of bright summery colours, it’s time to tone things down and simplify your home decor. Switching your vibrant decor for more muted styles with warming textiles can instantly add a feeling of warmth to your home, and make it feel more welcoming.
Think natural walls with burgundies, autumnal oranges, golds and earthy shades as your perfect seasonal palette. A few decorative items in these shades will transform the look of your home and give it a more autumn look and wintery feel.
Adding a few home accessories in wintery colours is something you can do on a budget, making it easy to transform your home during the colder months.
Go bold with a feature wall for cosiness and warmth
A feature wall is an accent wall that stands out from the rest of the room's decor. It can be a mural, textured wallpaper or even just paint on one wall. The idea is that it creates an inviting and warm environment for guests and family members alike.
The feature wall will be the focal point in a room. It is an area where you can go bold with your choice of colour and texture.
To really bring a feeling of warmth to your decor this winter, opt for a feature wall in autumn tones. Choose an autumn accent colour and paint a wall in this shade while adding decor items and textiles around the room to match.
