With winter well and truly upon us, Christmas just around the corner and the dark nights drawing in, it’s time to switch things up.
At this time of year, all we want to do is pop our PJ’s on, curl up in our favourite chair and binge watch festive films until the 25th. But, what do you do if your house is far from cosy? While we’re not telling you to head to the shops and spend your entire monthly budget on making your house as snuggly as possible, there are some simple things you can do to improve your interiors this season.
Follow our simple tips below and you’ll be feeling that festive glow in no time!
Is there anything more satisfying than running your hand along a soft piece of velvet? This winter, textures are bold– think a mustard throw or a blush chaise lounge. If a velvet sofa isn’t quite in your price range, why not try some simple accessories such as cushions or bedding? Pair with vintage style accessories, like reclaimed wood baskets or aged copper lights to avoid the whole Disney Princess vibe.
If you’ve ever wanted a marble kitchen surface but your bank account is screaming ‘no way!’ then the new trend for patterned wallpaper is definitely one for you! You don’t always have to spend a fortune to update your home – with so many brands and sites now offering removable wallpaper, floor decals and waterproof contact paper, its easy to update your home with very little effort and, more importantly, money. From brick to stone, mosaic to wood, there are plenty of options to suit any style. Now you can finally have those subway tiles you’ve always dreamed of, even if you have never been to New York.
Insulation is key!
With the temperatures outside dropping, there’s nothing worse than coming home after a long day to a freezing cold house. A simple but effective way to update your interior style and create a snug atmosphere this winter is by installing shutters on your windows or doors. Not only are they an attractive interior solution, but shutters actually reduce draughts and provide amazing heat insulation, keeping you toasty warm throughout winter and reducing those pesky heating bills – what more could you want?
