5 ways to style your home this winter

Autumn is now well and truly over and there’s a chill in the air as the wintry season sets in. It’s time to bring out the blankets, get the fireplace up and running and put on the Ugg boots at home. 

Now is also a great time to change up your interiors this season and add some stylish warmth to your space. Here are five easy ways to get started.


Experiment with layering and texture

Not only will layering different textures keep you warm and cosy this season, it also brings visual interest to your home – think of overlapping a couple of textured rugs on the floor from Decorug or mixing a chunky knitted blanket with a faux fur cushion or two from Coppola Home. It’s a really simple way to add style to your space.

And obviously, don’t forget to switch to warmer bedding too – My House has gorgeous flannel and jersey sheets worth checking out.

Play with jewel colours

Glamorous and moody, deep jewel tones are a big hit this season, like emerald greens, sapphire blues and dark plums. Metallics continue to be on-trend too, and they make great accents for dark colour palettes, like a gold picture frame or a rose gold vase.

A velvet crush

Rich, sumptuous velvet is one of the latest trends this season and it instantly injects some Hollywood glamour into the home.

However, do not to overdo it, or you’ll run the risk of your home looking over-the-top and gaudy rather than chic and stylish. To start, you may want to just invest in a couple of different cushions to throw on the couch or even some bedding, before you start investing in larger pieces like a bedhead, curtains or a sofa.

Note: It makes sense to keep velvet in the bedroom or lounge room, rather than the bathroom or kitchen, as it’s not an easy fabric to clean.

Embrace natural timbers

The minimalist Scandi look is still going strong this season and introducing beautiful natural timbers into the home is a classic look that will last for years to come. Think oak and ash wood, mixed with marble and granite.

The scent of winter

Imagine relaxing at home at the end of a long day with the delicious, comforting fragrance of a woody or spicy oil burner or candle. Now’s the time to switch your summery, fruity scents for something warmer like a beautiful vanilla candle or pear and ginger diffuser from MyHouse.
