With winter on the horizon, it's a perfect time to assess the various ways to keep the home warm. And just because there's an important practical reason for this, it doesn't mean that style needs to be overlooked. There are plenty of ways to create a warmer feeling at home in trendy and artistic ways.
Colour and Texture
Taking the time to look at the colour scheme around the home can pay off when trying to make the place warmer. Bold and rich colours work well when presented with soft and luxurious fabrics and materials. A new cushion, beanbag or lounger provides a lovely way to introduce a new look.
The Original Beanbag by Fatboy (above) certainly has bold colours on offer. Using a combination of EPS filling and nylon fabric, the beanbag is produced to a high degree. The beanbag is great for sitting on or lying down on, and will keep you comfortable and warmer in fine style.
Plants in Vases
Using greenery around the home is a tidy way to bring a reminder of growth and warmer seasons. By using plants and flowers - either real or artificial - you can benefit from a healthy looking place.
Making use of a creatively attuned vase such as the Bangle Vase by LSA International is a fine way to show of some new plant life. With a variety of resplendent colour tones, the vase is impressively styled with a golden band around the centre. Hand painted and created from mouth-blown glass, the vase provides an impressive way to bring some extra greenery into the home.
An introduction of new lighting features around the home is a sure-fire way to get a new feel around the place. Warm and coloured lights could bring in a new sense of cosyness and comfort. By using lamps, overhead lights, desk lights and candles, you can provide a home space with a whole new spectrum of warmth.
The above Rustic Pillar Candle from Be On Fire is a superb candle design. Styled in gold, the candle brings a comfortable and classic method of lighting up the home in a warm and inviting fashion.
Another strong way to keep the cold out and the warmth in is with full size curtains. Bedrooms and living rooms are made far more insulated with the positioning of curtains across large windows.
Take the Jacquard Stem Eyelet Curtains by Orla Kiely for example. The striking curtains are colored an invigorating olive green and yellow and are ideal for bringing a new look to any room. The curtains are easy to position with their well made eyelets, and the cotton used is of high quality and strength. Easy to look after, the curtains are another step in keeping the home warm this winter.
