Colours and Patterns

Choose gorgeous deep reds, lovely dark greens, sparkly silvers or strong shades of grey to give your home that beautiful winter feel. White also works well too, especially in combination with one of the above colour choices.

Checks and tartan are ideal for this time of year. They create a lovely cosy feel in any room of your home. Pick out red and green tartan throws or blankets to really perfect the look!

Scents

Another way to give your home that winter vibe you are looking for is through the scents that waft from room to room. Whether it is the smell of gingerbread, pine needle christmas tree smell or some other scent you love, pick whatever it is that reminds you of happy memories from winters past or generally gives you that warm glowing feeling about this time of year and replicate it at home so you can enjoy it throughout the season.

Textures

This winter choose thick chunky wool knits, soft fabrics and faux furs. Team them up with accessories from nature such as sprigs, cones and other woody type textures.

Wood Features

Wood features, especially dark wood, is great for setting the winter scene and completing a warm cosy look. Whether it is a beautiful wooden flooring, dark wood wall borders or rustic wood furnishings, now is the time to make them a prominent part of your overall look and really go out of your way to show them off!

Shutters

Shutters are a quirky little feature that does wonders for transforming your home into a snuggly winter nest. They offer a wonderfully rustic yet still modern feel that works for just about any style of home. Direct Blinds have some fab cafe style shutters that let in some natural light whilst simultaneously shutting out the outside world to give a sense of comfort so you can snuggle up and hibernate inside in peace!

Home Decor

Finishing touches make all the difference when making over your home for winter. Fairy lights, cinnamon sticks, red berries, green sprigs of holly and decorated cones are all firm favourites for this season. Fairy lights in a mason jar have a stunning effect.
