Tips to keep your home cosy this winter

It’s getting colder as winter goes along so we thought we’d give you our top tips to create a cosy haven in your home this winter.

Warm metals

While metals aren’t typically associated with warmth, colours such as brass and rose gold can add a warm glow to a well-lit room. Our Art Deco Brass finish table or our Kesterport Rose Coffee Table are both ideal for this.

Fabric Sofas

When it comes to cosy winter mornings, nothing beats a freshly brewed cup of tea wrapped in your dressing gown on a fabric sofa. It is comfort personified. Cushion backed sofas create a cocoon-like warmth that envelops you as you relax into them.

Glowing lights

Making the best use of lighting and warming features your home has, such as a fireplace is ideal for winter evenings and creating that glow, we all associate with comfort. Our range from Mindy Brownes features floor lamps that give a gentle hue rather than a bold bright effect.

Patterns and textures

Traditional floral patterns, plaid and paisley are all very warming and can help to create a cosy atmosphere when coupled with matching soft furnishings such as rugs, carpets and cushions.

Reverse your ceiling fan

A bonus tip for you if you have a ceiling fan, try reversing the direction of rotation to keep your room warm instead of cool. The fan blades will push the hot air downwards when they are moving in a clockwise direction as you look up at it.
