Our guide to creating a cosy space for an evening in...
Our homes are our safe place, especially with the current COVID-19 pandemic, we have been spending more time at home. A lot of people have decided to refurbish their home interiors during lockdown to create a fresh new interior which is now going to be the venue for lots of different occasions.
Are you looking to update your home interior to create somewhere warm and cosy? We have put together a checklist which includes our top picks:
When creating a cosy interior, we automatically think of cuddling up under a warm wool throw. It's always a good idea to have a throw or blanket draped over the arm of your sofa for those chilly evenings (or for when the dog jumps up on your best sofa to join you!).
We have a selection of blankets and throws available including recycled wool blankets, pure new wool throws and printed cotton blankets.
2. Lanterns / Fireplace
During the winter months lighting a fire instantly creates a warm cosy interior space. But don't worry if you don't have a fireplace, you can create the exact same feel with lots of candles and lanterns. Having different zones with different lighting in a room can really change the feel of an interior space. For example, create a corner a reading corner with a lamp and a soft white light or layer candles on a central coffee table to create soft lighting.
3. Cushions (lots of them!)
Layering lots of different cushions of different sizes on your sofa or bed can create a super cosy feel. It's easy to create that hotel feel when you flop onto the sofa and you are surrounded by soft cushions.
Cushions are a great way to add different colours, textures and tones into an interior space. You can be more daring with small snippets of colours that can be easily moved from room to room. It's a good idea to use different sized cushions to create a layered look without having too many large cushions (can you ever have to many?).
There are lots of different layouts for cushions but our traditional style is created by using a square cushion with a smaller rectangle cushion in front.
