1 PIC­TURE THE SCENE

Im­pact­ful wall art works won­ders to in­stantly change the feel of a room, but con­trast a win­try land­scape with warm woods and bur­nished met­als to bring cosi­ness to a scheme.

2 HAPPY PLACE

Bring an el­e­ment of na­ture into your bed­room. House­plants have a proven pos­i­tive im­pact on our well­be­ing, while dried flow­ers and grasses can bring a dec­o­ra­tive el­e­ment, and at the same time give a nod to warmer days.

CUR­TAIN CALL

Func­tional spa­ces such as home of­fices can of­ten feel cold and un­ap­peal­ing, so con­sider adding tex­ture and warmth. Hang­ing a gen­er­ous win­dow dress­ing to re­tain heat and pre­vent draughts, and swap­ping your desk chair for an up­hol­stered one are sim­ple changes that cre­ate a more snug feel.

THE LOOK OF LUXE

A vel­vet up­hol­stered bed is a worth­while in­vest­ment at any time of year, but will re­ally come into its own when win­ter sets in. A rich pile and lux­u­ri­ous deep colour will in­stantly bring warmth to a room, and when paired with vel­vet cush­ions in com­ple­men­tary tones, cre­ates a sim­ply stun­ning look.

COM­FORT BLAN­KETS

It goes with­out say­ing that warm throws should be close to hand dur­ing the colder months, so make a fea­ture of them in your room by dis­play­ing them on a rock­ing chair or pil­ing them up in a wicker bas­ket. These beau­ti­ful de­signs are in­spired by Na­tional Trust prop­er­ties around the coun­try and all prof­its sup­port the char­ity’s con­ser­va­tion work. Blick­ling Botan­i­cal jacquard throw, £35; Ochre twill throw, £30; Grey Il­lu­sion throw, £35; Bas­ket Weave cream throw, £35; all Na­tional Trust Shop
