Conquer the cold in your decor with this easy survival guide.
It’s a bit of a no-brainer when it comes to escaping the chill, but we couldn’t compile a winter list without indulging our love of all things textural and cosy. Think chunky knit throws, patterned rugs, and lambswool for an inviting haven. Remember to vary the textures between each piece for an eye-pleasing finish.
Play with mood lighting
Warm the senses with functional and artful lighting solutions including candles, and table and floor lamps. Better yet, put that indoor fireplace to good use for a maximum cosy effect.
Keep warm with colour
Avoid a complete monochrome finish that will leave your decor cold and uninviting. Just because it’s grey outside, doesn’t mean it has to be grey inside. Don’t be afraid to play with bright highlights to warm things up.
Bring the outdoors in
Fill your vases with the season’s latest floral. You’ll find the flower market blooming with orchids, tulips, hyacinth and white magnolias. Keep an eye out for poppies and ranunculas that will dazzle late in winter, too.
