The winter season is a great time of year to stay in your comfort zone and create an inviting warm nest in your home. Banish the winter blues with a shopping spree to transform your abode into an oasis that says ‘hibernation’. Snuggly blankets, bright cushions, romantic candles and woolly rugs are all a hit in winter.

Winter doesn’t have to be the gloomy season, bring a bit of fun and colour to your home with these helpful tips…

Brighten up your mood in the living room with a new throw rug and a few comfy cushions. Find a vibrant colour or pattern that compliments your couch and suits the surroundings in the room. When selecting these items, keep an eye out for those with a bold pattern or texture. We love woolly throw rugs as they look inviting and they’re great to snuggle up in on those lazy Sunday mornings. Make sure you don’t overdo it though; know when you have enough for comfort and colour.

Tip: if you’re daring, go for a bold bright colour that contrasts with your couch and embrace clashing colours!

The kitchen can feel like the room where you spend majority of your time – timeless family moments and memorable cooking creations come to life in the kitchen. Bring some colour into your space with bright feature pieces – choose a bright fruit bowl, or accessorise with colourful appliances. A few indoor plants or flowers will instantly give your kitchen the cheerful lift it needs in winter. Add life to your cooking surrounds with a herb garden, which will grow all year round and provide you with fresh delicious herbs to add to your family meals!

Add a bit of warmth to the bedroom with a welcoming rug, they are a great way to introduce playfulness and fun into a room. Don’t skimp on size though, the biggest mistake made when purchasing a rug is selecting a style that either boxes in your room or makes it look too sparse.

Tip: To centre your room, ensure you leave the same amount of floor space on all sides of the rug.

Candles are also a great addition to the bedroom, adding a sense of warmth, atmosphere and winter cosiness. And just like that, winter is already a little brighter!
