The Winter Solstice has come and gone here in the Southern Hemisphere, but it will be a little while before our balmy summer days are back. Therefore, we thought it would be a good idea to have a little chat about how we can all embrace winter and enjoy the cosy, hibernation that it offers.
1. Add a little texture
A toe pleasing deep pile is a sure fire way to add a little warmth to your home. The visual texture provides a welcoming feel, whilst the physical texture is a dream to stretch out on to enjoy those winter Netflix binges.
2. Go for bold, rich colour
When the weather is cooler, adding some rich, darker tones can create a feeling of warmth and welcome. Deep blues, greens and warmer orange and red tones can elevate your decorating to the next level.
3. Add warmth underfoot in “unexpected” places
Kitchens, bathrooms and laundries are all notoriously cold places underfoot, therefore we think it’s a great idea to pop a little warmth on the floor with a runner or small rug. Your feet will thank you!
4. Warm it up with Wool
Climbing out of a nice warm bed (sometimes before the sun) can be hard in the cold winter months. Therefore it’s nice to have something soft and comforting under foot as soon as you step out of bed. A lovely, warm braided wool rug is just the thing to add texture and underfoot pleasure to your boudoir.
5. Consider warm whites
We all know nothing says summer like crisp, clean white, but don’t discount white altogether in winter. Above all, the trick to winter whites is to keep the tones warmer and pair with neutrals to finish the look.
Whether you’re a Hygge loving winter warrior or a beach babe winter-phobe, by taking the time to embrace the cooler weather, shorter days and cosy decorating options, your home can still be your haven.
