WIN­TER IS FI­NALLY HERE, PEO­PLE. BUT BLINK AND YOU’LL MISS IT. EM­BRACE THE CHILL AND USE IT AS AN EX­CUSE TO UP­DATE YOUR IN­TE­RIOR STYLING IN ON-TREND MONO­CHROME. HERE’S HOW.

Haven Magazine - - Life -

Fi­nally, now that it’s July, we are feel­ing that true chill of win­ter most nights and early morn­ings. The early-set­ting sun is a bless­ing to par­ents, as chil­dren set­tle into their cud­dly py­ja­mas and night rou­tines ear­lier than nor­mal. Thank you, Mother Na­ture. The change of sea­son means tweak­ing your in­te­rior de­sign just slightly to keep your house and its oc­cu­pants cosy. To re­ally give your home that warm, wel­com­ing, snuggly and cud­dly July vibe, there are a few win­ter es­sen­tial dec­o­rat­ing tips that scream ‘Put another log on the fire!’. And there are bonus points if you can also em­brace the cur­rent (yet clas­sic) mono­chrome look while ‘win­terfy­ing’ your home. It’s ob­vi­ous, but add some wool in the way of over­sized knit­ted ac­ces­sories for your lounge­room. Think throws, bean­bags, ot­tomans and cush­ions. We love Nickel.N.Co for their chunky knit­ted throws, cush­ions and even coast­ers. Del­ish! Layer up chairs, rugs etc with a fluffy sheep­skin or, for some­thing a lit­tle dif­fer­ent, an eth­i­cally sourced deer hide. Lay­er­ing pro­vides the vis­ual feel­ing of com­fort and warmth. Freshen up your colour scheme with this win­ter’s hottest (and eas­i­est) colour pal­ette: mono­chrome. But don’t be think­ing you’ve got to paint walls black or make any other ma­jor changes. Sim­ply re­move some of the bold, bright colours of sum­mer and re­place them
