There is something so beautiful about a lit candle. The illuminating warm colour softens the space around it, creating a tranquil vibe. They make a beautiful statement on dining tables and gentle mood lighting in the living room. Scented candles can create a soothing atmosphere with sandalwood, vanilla or citrus.
A mix of materials, natural fibres and interesting patterns gives your home a special welcoming feel. Natural fibres tend to breathe easier, retain heat better and feel more comfortable. Think silks, velvet, wool, wood and leather when you choose your furnishings and décor. In winter, you can layer your furnishings with extra blankets, cushions and rugs.
3. Beautiful Bathroom
My goodness, it can be difficult to get out of bed in the winter months. One way to overcome this is to turn your bathroom into a special sanctuary. By placing fluffy towels, a snuggly bath mat and maybe even a scented candle in your bathroom, you can turn your morning shower into a special ritual.
4. Citrus Fruits
Oranges, mandarins, lemons, kiwi and grapefruit are ripe throughout winter. A bowl of bright fruit not only invites you to savour healthy snacks, but it makes a vibrant centrepiece for a kitchen bench or coffee table.
5. Winter Roasts
Roasts aren’t tricky to cook, but they do take time. That’s why winter is the perfect time for a delicious slow cooked meal. While spending an afternoon at home, why not let the oven heat your home and invite friends around for a traditional roast? Nothing warm you up better than tasty food and great company.
