Adding warm accents to your winter décor

Warm decor2

The cold temperatures have officially set in and Christmas is just around the corner, but before you start kitting out your home with festive cheer make sure you dress your home for winter.

This season is all about creating cosy and comforting living spaces with emphasis on rich colours to give you the feeling of warmth.

Check out what accents you should be adding to your décor this winter.

Lounge Layers

Much like your wardrobe, it’s all about layering up in the home this season. Create that feeling of being wrapped up warm by layering accessories in your living room and bedroom.

Mix textures and colours of rugs, cushions and throws with your current home furnishings to create an inspired winter space. Plus, once you add in your Christmas decorations, it will be the ultimate festive hideaway for the whole family.

If you fancy filling your floor space this winter, check out these rugs from Houseology, or if you’re more about creating a space to curl up under a blanket, why not add a few of these cushions to your couch?

Dark Prints

This winter décor trend is definitely hanging onto warmer times, as darker prints featuring paisley, florals and 70s chic are making an appearance.

Filled with rich hues of purple, navy and red, this style continues the popular jewel hues trend that was a huge hit with interior lovers in the autumn.

Scandinavian-inspired dark prints are gracing everything from bedding and cushions to shower curtains to keep you warm this winter, including this Ikea bedding which is complete with pretty dark botanicals. Team it with these cosy cushions from Dunelm and you’re definitely ready for a warming winter.

Chalet-Style

Sitting in front of an open fire when it’s snowing outside usually only happens in the movies. But this winter, introduce the chalet trend to your home to create the cosiest winter look of them all, featuring luxe neutrals, faux fur and marble accents.

This faux fur rug from Next would be a perfect addition if you’re looking to bring ski-lodge vibes to your home. Plus, this could introduce the layering trend to your living space too. Finish off this winter décor trend with black and white marble.

Don’t forget, this is where you can include those stylish pieces of furniture. Try a tan, leather chair or how about a rattan basket for the firewood?
