With Christmas just weeks away, there’s no better time to implement a few changes to your home decor to make it look warm, cosy and homely in time for the big day. Just a few changes can have a huge impact on your home and your mood:
The lighting in your home is incredibly important. Ambient lighting provides the overall illumination of your home, giving the room a bright feel the whole family can enjoy. Task lighting is ideal for any Christmas Day reading, preparing the turkey and all the festive trimmings, or any other close-up work. Accent lighting is great for highlight standout features in your home such as novelty decoration or table centrepieces. A cosy room maximises the use of these three lighting types.
Accessories such as cushions, throws and blankets are the ultimate way to add a cosy feel in any home. Pile festive cushions on to your sofa, add thick woollen throws to your beds for extra comfort and warmth. Experiment with different fabrics and textures to add a little depth into your interior. Use fabrics such as cashmere, wool, mohair and velvet.
Lastly, an item you can add to your home for ultimate warmth and cosiness on Christmas Day and all year round is plantation shutters. Shutters trap the cold between the window and the frame adding extra warmth to your home. Other than being super practical, they’re stylish and add a traditional cosiness to your interior.
