Easy Ways To Warm Up This Winter
Capture the LightNatural light is few and far between in the depths of winter for our Scandinavian friends, so maximising what they do get is vital. Obviously, large floor to ceiling windows are the most ideal way to let lots of natural light in, but ensuring your home is situated on the land in a way to maximise the sunshine throughout the day is equally, if not more, important.
Add Natural MaterialsNatural wood and other natural materials can add a lovely warmth to a home, as they act as a natural insulator to retain heat. Try adding lighter coloured woods in your furniture, floorboards or benchtops to create a toasty ambience. To learn more about some eco-friendly materials to put into your home, click here.
Mix up Textures and ColoursTypically the use of earthy colours and textures is used very sparingly in Scandinavian design, making way for all things white and light. However, the use of a faux fur rug near a fireplace, or a deep maroon feature wall can really make your home feel more inviting.
Candles for EffectBy adding candles to your home, you can instantly brighten up a room. The warm light they bestow can transform the atmosphere from dark and cold to light and warm in an instant.
Bring the Outside, InConsider investing in some potted greenery to bring into your living space. The green of the plants adds life back into an otherwise dark or cold area and brings an air of life and rejuvenation to your home.
