The colder months of the year may bring wind, rain, and icy chills, but when your home is a winter oasis, weathering them is easy, even enjoyable. Nothing beats an afternoon of cosy creature comforts while the weather rages outside.
There are many simple and stylish ways to add warmth and comfort to your home to make it more inviting – that won’t cost you an arm and a leg either.
One of the easiest ways to get a room winter-ready is to play with colour. Natural, earthy tones are warm and inviting, exactly what every room should be during those chilly months. You can’t go wrong opting for some of these warming winter shades:
Warm winter textures are easy to implement thanks to their unassuming simplicity. Natural timber adds instant warmth to any room, whether it’s in the form of a simple side table, a beautifully carved photo frame or decorative accessories. Consider adding touches of leather here and there for a touch of rustic sophistication – not to mention that heavenly leather smell.
There are some fragrances that give one an instant sense of winter: citrus, vanilla, musk, tobacco, and warm spices like cardamom, cinnamon, cloves, and star anise. They’re warm and comforting, like an invisible hug when you walk into a room. The key is to keep it subtle, just noticeable enough to stir the senses.
Lighting is essential to a warm and welcoming room. While nothing beats a cracking fire on an icy night, there are other ways to keep the cold at bay using simple lighting and heating techniques.
