Think about energy efficiency. Simple additions such as installing thermal curtains and laying down a rug can help you keep the heat in this winter – and keep the power bill low! See across the page for our tips on shopping for and installing thermal curtains.
Just because you’ve chosen a neutral palette, doesn’t mean your room has to be boring. Instead of different colours, think about combining clashing textures. A welcoming winter room demands soft, warm and interesting layers to add cosiness – think wood with white, fine quilting and chunky cable knits.
LOOK 1: Urban grey
This is a look that will stand the test of time, with rich textures and tonal neutrals taking centre stage. Grey, ivory and concrete tones combine to create a gorgeous palette, while different layers of cable knits and faux fur complement the look’s classic shapes and wooden accents. Mixing up the textures of the cushions with checks, grids, tufts and quilting softens the look, and makes the space on-trend yet inviting and casual. Tie it all together with a complementing soft-touch rug in shades of grey, and finish the whole room off with a cute green succulent and a cosy candle.with a cute green succulent and a cosy candle.
