Tips for warming your interiors

As the seasons change and the air turns chilly, it’s a good idea to infuse warmth into your interiors to help them feel cosy and inviting. Who doesn’t want a nice, comfortable space to relax in while the weather outside is frightful? Here are some tips and tricks to elevate your interiors, infusing warmth and charm into every corner.

Embrace warm colour palettes: Colour is a an invaluable tool when it comes to setting the tone for your space. Choose warm, earthy tones like deep reds, rich oranges, or golden yellows on your walls to help envelop the room in a warm hug. We recommend our shades Tufted Kilim, Overjoyed, Ceramic Kiln, and Cushion Craze. These hues add a welcoming feel, instantly transforming the environment into a cosy oasis.

Layer with your textures: Incorporating different textures brings depth and tactile warmth to a room. Consider adding plush throws, soft pillows, velvety upholstery, knitted blankets, or sumptuous area rugs to create a feeling of luxury and warmth. Mix materials like wool, faux fur, velvet, boucle, or chunky knit fabrics for a diverse and inviting atmosphere.

Turn to wood accents and other natural elements: Introduce wood accents or natural elements into your decor to add warmth and bring some of the natural world indoors. Wooden furniture, exposed beams, or even decorative branches and dried flowers bring in an organic feel, creating a comforting connection to the outside world.

Create cosy nooks around your home: Designate cosy areas or reading corners within your overall space. Comfy armchairs or window seats adorned with plush cushions and throws invite relaxation. Add a side table with warm lighting for a perfect spot to unwind with a book and a cup of tea.

Opt for soft lighting: Lighting plays a crucial role in creating a warm and inviting atmosphere. Embrace soft, ambient lighting through lamps, sconces, or candles to cast a gentle glow. Dimmer switches offer flexibility, allowing you to adjust the intensity based on the desired mood. String lights also illuminate key areas beautifully, and are especially charming during the Christmas season- although we love them year round!

Add greenery for additional vibrancy: Bring life indoors with houseplants, flowers, and other greenery. These will add a refreshing touch and also contribute to a cosy atmosphere, connecting you to nature whatever the season may be!

Make your space uniquely yours with art and memories: Personal touches and meaningful decor pieces infuse personality and warmth into a space. Display family photos, cherished artwork, or handmade crafts to add a sense of personal history and cosiness.

Introduce warm scents and aromas: Enhance the ambiance with inviting scents. Use scented candles, essential oil diffusers, or simmering pots with spices like cinnamon and cloves to create a comforting aroma that fills the air.

Incorporating these tips into your interior space can transform it into an inviting haven for you, your family and your friends to enjoy. By infusing your home with the above elements, you can easily create a welcoming retreat that you'll look forward to coming home to, no matter the season.
