A hands - on guide to create a cosy home

Winter is a season for wool sweaters, warm beverages, chimney fires, and to cosify your home. It's a blessed time to catch up on those books we didn’t quite find time to read during the warmer months. A time to take up knitting or playing board games under a cosy blanket. A time to spend at home with friends and family. And the perfect opportunity to decorate! If you don’t know where to start, we’ve got you covered. We listed our best tips to transform your home into a vibrant and cosy burrow this winter, allowing you to hibernate in a comfy cocoon of serenity.


Wrap yourself in soft goodness

For most of us, the heart of any living room is the sofa. Whether you’re re-reading your favorite book or binge-watching all the episodes of Harry Potter, the sofa is the place to be. And your comfort should be an absolute priority—that means piles of cushions, heaps of blankets or a stylish throw with a warm color. According to Fashion United, sensual and seductive are the key characteristics or 2022. Add soft and silky textures to your home ware to add elegance and unbeatable comfort.

Set the mood with scent

If you’re looking to add ambience to your home, fragrance is your friend. Whether you’re new to home perfumes, or usually just go for the same scents, transitioning seasons is the perfect time to look for new aromas. Whilst summer is all about floral and fresh scents, adding some woody and spicy tones to your winter fragrances is the perfect way to get into the seasonal spirit. Whilst fragrance sticks are a great for aromas, candles are your go-to for ultimate relaxation. According to research from the University of Alabama, watching fire can lower your blood pressure. Many of us without a fireplace turned to Netflix or youtube for to watch fire crackle last year but why not take that one step further? Try arranging your candles together with layered heights and take some time to watch the flames. Having this calming focus can help reduce anxiety and create a sense of calm.


Add some colour

When the weather outside is frightful, add some warmth to your home with a pop of colour. According to Pantone & Farrow & Balls colour trends for 2022, we will see an eclectic mix of simplicity and spontaneity next year. For your cosy corner, classic calming hues like humus and soft whites could lay create a soft and simple foundation but spice it up with adding some brighter layers. For your bedroom, try adding a throw in a supersonic blue to add some vibrance or liven up your living room with some coral or bright green cushions. On dark and colder days, colours are the perfect source of warmth!


Bonus tip: warming drink

There’s nothing more cosy than nestling down with a nice hot drink. Try Rouhis’ recipe for a coco or chai latte to add the perfect finishing touch!
