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.
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
