Winter Warming Tips for Your home Interior

When winter comes, you need to prepare your home for the cold. Make sure your heating system is ready to go. Make sure your windows are in good shape. Install insulation, caulking, and weather stripping to help make your home warmer. Make sure your furnace is running efficiently. Make sure you have enough fuel for your heating system.

Design around a Focal Point

The shifting seasons should see a shift in the focal point of your living spaces. With outdoor spaces ceasing to be used over the colder months, move sofas so they face fires and entertaining indoor spaces. Use a rug to ground your new arrangement and add a feature armchair like the gold Spyder chair from Kovacs to give you extra seating around the fire.

A new piece of art on an internal wall will focus attention inwards and provide interest and color. Contrary to popular belief, art doesn’t need to be expensive, either. Think outside the square and look for unconventional art pieces, such as the affordable Notre Monde trays, which can hang on the wall.

Consider your windows

As much as 45% of the heat from your home can escape through your windows; curtains and blinds are smart investments during the winter months. Not all curtains and blinds are created equal when insulating your home. According to a new report from Consumer NZ, Honeycomb blinds, or Duettes as they are also known, come out on top for providing insulation. Duettes have a snug fit and effectively seal the window, keeping warm air inside. There is further enhanced by their unique honeycomb construction that forms a series of insulating air traps – much like wrapping a blanket around your window. At McKenzie & Willis, we supply Luxaflex Duettes, which come in a great range of stylish fabrics.

You can also minimize heat loss through windows by hanging your curtains from ceiling to floor and specifying thermal block-out lining. It’s best to choose lined curtains with an extra layer over ‘thermal coated’ curtains, as this secondary layer of material creates insulation. To take your curtain lining up a notch, choose bumph interlining. Bump interlining is a layer of soft and lofty material hidden between the curtain fabric and back lining. It gives your curtains a voluminous and beautiful look, and the three layers trap air and provide warmth.

Layer with rich colors and texture

It’s all about creating cozy and exciting displays in winter. Layer up your space with rich colors, and add texture with wool and fur. While warming colors such as rust and green are very on trend this year, nearly every color palette can be adjusted to suit the colder months. If you love blue in the summer, ground it in the winter with soft, warm grey tones. Add gold to give warmth to any setting. After all, it is the color of fire.

Make your dining area cozy too. Drape throws over dining chairs, lower center displays on the dining table, and put a nice rug under the table to keep it warm underfoot.

Make an impact with flooring.

For a complete overhaul, consider updating your flooring. Loop carpets or plusher cut piles are a great way to introduce texture and completely change the feel of your room. For the ultimate warmth, choose a wool carpet and pair it with a quality underlay such as the Dunlop Dream Walk Black Label.

Create book stacks

Books make a significant styling prop all year round, especially in winter when you want to hint at curling up inside with a good book.

A stack of 3 or more books looks excellent on its own, or you can layer decorative items on top. For added interest, try stacking some books horizontally and others vertically.

Don’t forget your bed.

Longer (and colder) nights call for a bed that’s up to the task. If your mattress is over ten years old or no longer provides the required comfort, it may be time to look for a new bed. Choose a bed that includes natural fibers such as wool, cashmere, alpaca, or silk, as these are great at regulating temperature and keeping you warm in winter at home. The Beautyrest Connoisseur bed has Alpaca fiber in its quilt panel, providing natural warmth while remaining breathable.

Create a cozy sleeping environment

Once your base is sorted, add cozy textures and soft layers to your bed. Winter is all about touch, so velvet, wool, and fur come into their own in winter. When paired with linen and cotton, they create a great sleeping environment. As for sheets, Flannelette is always a winner in winter. Go for a top-of-the-line option, such as the Seneca Bellini Luxe Flannelette Sheets. These sheets have superior construction and yarn size of home, which means they are non-pilling and will last longer.

Create a cozy sleeping environment

You can also add natural warmth and replace the need for an electric blanket with a feather and down topper. As well as adding to the comfort of your bed, a feather and down topper creates a layer of insulation far superior to anything synthetic. It is because feather & down has a very high insulation factor compared to its weight, and it won’t clump like many artificial fibers. It is also breathable and will wick moisture away from the skin. Look for the feather & down topper that has been ethically sourced, such as MM Down 80/20 Luxury Mattress Topper, which has been accredited with the stringent standards of ‘Downpass 2017’.

Finish the look with an upholstered headboard like the Bianca Lorenne Bettino Headboard. Again, velvet adds a luxurious feel, while the deep buttoned detailing gives a sense of old-world glamour.
