Keep Your Home Cosy This Winter


Five ways to keep your home cosy throughout the winter:

Fill your home with candles

Any living space can be transformed into a cosy, welcoming environment with candles. The flickering light creates a warm ambience. Popular winter and festive scents include warm vanilla, cinnamon, cloves, and spiced orange. 

Accessorize with winter 2021’s interior trends

This year’s interior design trends have taken their inspiration from the great outdoors. For colours, think forest green, rust, caramel and turmeric. Incorporate nature-inspired texture in the form of rugs and indoor plants. For an extra festive feel at Christmas time, wrap twinkly lights around any potted plants. 

Turn your TV into a fireplace

Available as videos on Youtube, transform a TV screen into a festive fireplace, complete with crackling fire sounds. There are 10+ hour versions of the interactive art available, perfect for snuggling up to read a book, or as a cosy backdrop when hosting guests.

Drape twinkly lights around the house

Fairy lights aren’t just for Christmas, they can provide pretty lighting throughout each room of the house. The soft lighting creates a cosy vibe, and can add a lovely glow to darker corners of a room. 

Fill your home with the scent of homemade baking

Baking homemade cake, cookies or mince pies is the perfect way to embrace the coming winter months and doubles up as a diffuser. Find and bake your favourite recipe, while filling the apartment with the scent of freshly baked goods.
