If you’re decorating your home this winter, it’s likely you’ll be considering ways to make spaces feel more comfortable and welcoming. In warmer months minimalist designs are very popular because they help to make spaces feel airy and light. When the temperature drops and days get shorter, we tend to want to make our rooms a little more cosy. A few decorative touches can make all the difference at this time of year.

Our colour palettes tend to change in the winter, with cool colours being replaced by warmer tones. Many people think about deep reds because of Christmas but orange, gold and brown can also help to create a warm, glowing atmosphere. You don’t need to completely redecorate; a few simple touches can help you to achieve the effect you want, such as painting one feature wall and complementing it with some accessories in similar warm shades. We also tend to opt for different fabrics and textures at this time of year than we would during the warmer months, so consider investing in some throws, rugs and cushions in soft and warm fabrics such as wool, faux fur and corduroy.

Many people also choose to adjust their lighting to suit the time of year. Softer lighting will look great with deeper, richer winter colours. You can change lampshades quite easily and produce a stunning effect for the room. Darker, thicker curtain fabric will help to complete the effect, and can also help to insulate the room to keep you warm and cosy.
