TURN UP THE TOASTINESS
Bring in a pile of logs to add an instant rustic feel. No real fire? No problem. Create a wintry display instead by piling them high in a basket or stacking them under a low shelf.
Layer rugs – add warmth by mixing different sizes and textures together to cover draughty floors. This is also a quick and easy way to connect open living spaces and ‘join’ rooms together.
Bulk up your curtains by adding another layer of fabric or a thermal lining. This will help to keep the warmth in, as well as reduce winter heating costs.
Inject a jewel tone. A pop of rich colour – in the form of cushions or a blanket – gives an instant winter update.
Fluff up your furniture. Sheepskins over dining chairs will cosy up your winter meals.
Nothing says snug like an open fire or log burner. Create a focal point in the room by angling furniture to face it.
Dim the lights and embrace the darkness with candlelight and lamps. Choose a wintry scented candle or room diffuser for the full sensory experience.
Cover your sofa or armchairs with woven throws. Tuck in neatly for a chic take on the look.
