Light the fire, there’s nothing quite like the warmth of a roaring fire when the temperature has dropped below freezing outside. The crackling of burning logs and flickering flames that die down to a burnt orange ethereal glow as the night goes on. We love nothing more than to sit with family safe in the knowledge that we are cosy and warm whilst the outside freezes over.
No cosy living room would be complete without a pile of fluffy, warm blankets. Mixing textures and fabrics is one secret all designers know to take a room to the next level and winter really is the time of year in which you can indulge in blanket heaven.
Candles, tiny flickering flames dotted around the room add a delicate warm touch. Choose scents such as vanilla, ginger and clove or cinnamon for a festive feel.
Lighting plays such an important part in creating the right atmosphere in a room. We think twinkling fairy lights gathered into a vase are the perfect way to add a little cosy to your room.
Don’t be afraid to go bold with colour, choose warm golden yellow tones for added warmth. Limit your winter changes to easy cost effective solutions, avoid re-painting walls unless you want to do it seasonally! We love the use of warm metallics to get us into the festive spirit.
