Texture is a great way to add a sense of warmth to a space. Whether it be a chunky knit throw, or a touch of fur. Winter accessories can transform a space and make it feel warm and inviting.
Floor rugs are a great way to add warmth and texture. Don't be afraid to use a floor rug on an already carpeted area. The more texture and layering the cosier the feel.
Woven accessories such as storage baskets and light fittings are also a fantastic way to add texture into your home. Baskets are not only great for storage, they also look amazing used as planters. Woven occasional furniture are not only great statements in a room, but they add texture and interest.
Natural light is so important and an easy way to warm up your home on a chilly day. Skylights may come at a cost, but they are a great home investment and a fantastic way to add natural warmth into your home.
Bringing the outside in!
Indoor plants warm a space up visually. Not only do they add personality to a room, they add character that can make a space feel lived in and inviting. Go for plants that are happy to live indoors and that project a touch of charm and personality.
Don't be afraid to add a touch of wood into your home. The colour, texture and character can be extremely powerful in creating a warm vibe.Tip: When mixing different woods, opt for wood tones that complement each other. The image below demonstrates how two wood finishes can work well together while completely contrasting.
Wall colour can make or break a space when it comes to making a home feel homely. If you're wanting to warm up your room, opt for a colour that exuberates warmth. Don't be afraid to work with dark tones, especially in feature walls.
Tip: Want to work with green, grey or charcoal tones? Complement the colour with warmer toned décor and accessories as pictured above.
Scent can be a creative way to add warmth into your home during the winter months. Opt for vanilla, cinnamon and woody scents to create a welcoming and homely retreat.
