Brighten a cold house with warm colours

Highfields' Own - - INTERIOR -

As the weather steadily be­comes colder, the fresh colours of sum­mer decor can seem to drain all the warmth out of your home. Bring some heat in by re­vamp­ing the decor. If you’ve got the de­sire to go all-out makeover, this could mean fresh paint on the walls and some new fur­ni­ture.

If your bud­get is tighter, home decor can be sim­ply warmed up us­ing cush­ions, throws, pic­ture frames and maybe a new lamp, vase or ob­jet d'art.

While warm shades pop­u­lar last year like cop­per are out of trend this year, deep coloured wood, cork and ter­ra­cotta are in — all of which add a cosy feel to a room.

This year jewel tones are in trend as well, so step away from the tra­di­tional or­anges, reds and neu­tral tones for au­tumn and add a splash of colour.

Rich pur­ples, vi­brant teal, lively deep green and bright yel­low shades are all colours to con­sider for this sea­son.

Not only do they add warmth, these shades also add cheer to your home in an of­ten dreary sea­son as we head into win­ter.
