As the nights are getting longer and the days are getting shorter, it won’t be long before we’re all snuggled up on the sofa and spending more time indoors. So I think it's time to re-decorate our homes turning it into a cozy and stylish place to spend these long nights.
Curious? So keep on reading ……
SET THE RIGHT MOOD:
Invest in good candles to create a calm and warm atmosphere. I love to group them into one corner, not only it smells good but it also helps me to relax enjoying the simple pleasure of the ambiance of my space.
Rather than switching on the main ceiling lights, try to focus on accent lighting such as floor lamp, lantern which doesn’t produce bright light source. I personally like the idea of placing a statement floor lamp in living room or reading nook to bring a practical ambient lighting.
2. FALL TONES :
Update your colour schemes to embrace the deeper tones found in changing colours of autumn leaves. Think warm neutrals and earthy colours this season from sofas to cushions and rugs. Take a quick walk outside to get inspired from the changing colours of the leaves which will help you capture the crisp but cosy colour scheme.
And if you are adventures like me and thinking to paint the four walls, its important to keep in mind that during winter the paint colour will look slightly different. The paint colour will look much colder then it was in summer natural light.
3.COSY DETAILS :
Embrace the feeling of cosy this winter through supersized knitted blankets and a statement throw which will immediately transform the look and feel of your space.
And update your resting corners by adding soft, fluffy textures. Add a chunky knitted throw, soft rug or some faux fur to your chairs, sofa and beds to encourage relaxation and snuggling.
Swap lighter coloured cushions with a deeper hue to quickly transform the look of your sofa / bed. Try layering and mixing different type of cushions ( I prefer over-sized ones) on your sofa to add a touch of elegance, whilst maintaining a comfy atmosphere.
For a timeless look or if you like to make a statement with a bold hue, velvet simply adds an element of richness to your home. And if your lifestyle doesn’t suit a velvet sofa, try adding few velvet cushions to embrace the look.
