Ways to Keep Your Home Cosy This Winter

Cosy and comfortable. That’s what your home needs to be when the mercury plummets. To dial up the warmth in your space, think texture, think layers. Follow these easy styling tips room by room so that you can take your home from drab to fab in winter.

Your Living Room

Dress up your Olivia sofa with sumptuous cushions – the more, the merrier! Here’s where you can go bold by adding pops of colour in your accessories. How about warming jewel tones of sapphire, emerald and ruby for a welcoming vibe? Don’t forget a cosy throw across your favourite Franz armchair in your reading nook. 


Your Dining Room

Choose tactile elements like table runners, placemats and napkins to dress up your Magnus or Axel dining table for winter. Scented candles and winter foliage add to the cosy ambience. If you decide to add a rug under your dining table, make sure to measure your dining table and then get a rug that’s at least 50cm wider all around so that when the dining chairs are pulled out, they’re still on the rug.

Your Entertainment Room

After a long work week, turn the lights down low and settle down to binge watch the latest series in front of the Svend TV unit. Keep your coffee (or wine), the remote and your snacks handy on the Frida nesting tables. Opt for thicker throws and blankets to keep warm and toasty. Who’s getting the popcorn? 

Your Bedroom 

The easiest way to dial up the cosy factor in your bedroom is to add layers, layers and more layers. Store away your summery cottons in your Arne tallboy and bring out the flannelette sheets, soft-to-touch blankets, knitted throws and scatter cushions as you snuggle up in your Bruno or Jolanda bed. Keep a woven basket handy for extra pillows and throws. Don’t forget to add a textural rug underneath so that your feet feel warm when they hit the floor each morning. 

Your Home Office

First off, choose a chair that’s comfortable – the Astrid, Henrik, Nestor and Stefan dining chairs all have fabric/leather padded seats to make working from home a breeze. Keep your documents and office paraphernalia organised in the Jorgen sideboard so that your study is clutter-free and encourages productivity. Psst! The all-new Olivia modular shelves come in different widths and heights to seamlessly fit into your home office – perfect for displaying everything from your family photos and pot plants to books and business degrees.
