How to get your home winter-ready

With the cooler-weather fast approaching, it’s only natural that our quintessential outdoorsy Australian lifestyles start to move indoors and we begin to crave warm, cosy spaces. But, how do you change up your home without breaking the bank? Here are a few simple steps to make your home as warm and inviting as possible this winter.

Introduce Texture
If you’ve moved all of your throws and rugs into storage, now is the time to pull them back out. Layering up sofas with throws, blankets or fluffy sheepskins will bring immediate warmth and comfort to any home. If you’re looking for something a little more impactful, there’s nothing that says elegance and warmth like a velvet sofa.

Gather Around
When it’s cold outside, there’s no better place to be than around the dining table. Lovingly home-cooked meals shared between family and friends, great conversation and of course, a nice glass of red – surely there’s nothing more comforting?

Heat Up Your Home
If you have wooden or concrete floors - or even just want to bring more warmth and cosiness to your space, now is the time to invest in a rug. A great rug can change the entire ambience of the room, making it feel more welcoming and cold-weather proof in a flash! We love the Scandi Natural Rug.

Change Your Colour Palette
An affordable change is to switch up your colour palette. Even if you’re partial to a minimalist look, bringing in richer hues to floral arrangements, cushions, home décor and even artwork can totally transform a room. If you’re feeling adventurous, a new sofa in rich navy, plum or tan leather will create a cosy sanctuary you won’t want to leave.
