When the cold winter weather really starts to bite, aside from turning the central heating up, there are plenty of other ways to bring an extra level of warmth to the home.
Here at Homecolours we believe it's always a good idea to pay attention to the colours used in the home. How different tones and contrasts make the place feel and interact with your overall style of decor is all part of the process of warming decoration. It can be cosy and inviting to use a selection of warming colours in different ways. It is always possible to change the look and feel of the home through the use of colour.
Reds, yellows and orange tones are able to bring to mind a warmer atmosphere around the place regardless of how cold it is outside. Here are some perfect picks for adding a warmer feel to the home through clever use of colour.
The Orla Kiely Puppy Dog Cushion makes use of a beautiful dog and flower design over a white, charcoal and orange background. The combination is certainly a striking image, and is sure to provide a warming a comfortable touch to the living room or bedroom. The cushion is capable of showing two sides, with the dog silhouette and orange flower on on side and the famous Orla Kiely stem pattern on the other. Certain to provide a warming and bright image around the home.
In the bedroom the addition of a comfortable fleece can work wonders in keeping away the cold. When it is styled in a fiery red colour it can be even better. That's certainly part of the appeal of the above Cosy Fleece Throw, Scarlet 150x200cm by Malani. The lovely throw is 100% polyester and is capable of making the sofa or the bed a much warmer place. It's available in a selection of different colours, but for the truly warming touch it's a good idea to go with the scarlet.
Warm light and a soothing style is beautifully provided with the Coloured DeLight Tealight Holder by Villeroy and Boch. The lemony yellow of the coloured glass wonderfully filters the subtle illumination of a tea light. The calming and serene design of the piece allows for a relaxing calm style in any room of the home. The yellow colour tone option of the piece is a great choice for evoking memories of sunlight, providing a lovely warm feel wherever it is used.
