I don’t know about you, but especially in winter all I want to do is snuggle up at home after a long day and enjoy a hot chocolate and magazine. For a long time, I really struggled bringing comfort and cosiness into my home, but with a couple of accessories and the use of some colour, it really isn’t that difficult to make your home feel warm and cosy during the winter months. Here are some suggestions for you:
1. Change your wall colour and go with a colour that you can already find somewhere in your room. My feature wall is in mulberry and I like to accessories with items that are in the same colour family or compliment the colour. This year, I will even have mulberry coloured baubles on my Christmas tree. Believe me, it works!
2. Cover up tiles and wooden flooring with with a pretty rug or runner. Personally, I really love flokatis as they are so warm and fluffy and literally scream comfort when you look at them, but with two cats and a mess-attracting toddler in the house, they might not be the best option for us. There are plenty of other options that will help you make a room cosy this winter.
3. Invest in a heated towel rail and keep your bathroom and towels warm and snuggly. It might seem like an extravagant splurge, but it will really make early mornings or that long soak after work so much more relaxing. I mean who wouldn’t rather snuggle up in a warm towel than the damp one from the night before?
4. Add cushions and throws to bring some cosiness into your living or bedroom. They are also great to cuddle up in on cold winter nights and they also add some texture and depth to your room. Try working with different fabrics for the added snuggle factor.
5. Light a candle or two – I always have candles burning as I find that they create a really relaxed atmosphere and the warm light really helps to make a room feel more homely and comfortable. Candles with a vanilla, rose or citrus scent can even impact on the mood of an entire room. Vanilla is naturally soothing and is said to help when you feel sad and lonely.
How do you yourself warm at home and what are your tricks to add some cosiness and comfort?
