Across the globe, 2020 has been all about staying snug at home. But there’s no reason why your home shouldn’t be stylish, given you are spending so much time in it. Winter has always been a time for staying snug indoors, but this year it is vital that we spend more time at home. So we have put together our top products that will make you delighted to close the front door behind you and get cosy on the couch.
There are two rules of thought for making your home snuggly with your interior design choices in the winter months. You can go all out with whites and neutrals to make a very zen, calming interior, or you can create a more intimate and cosier interior with dark tones. Using dark tones for the finishing touches of your home is a brilliant way to stay snug in style. This time we’re going to run through a shortlist of all of our favourite products for transforming your home into a warm, peaceful haven this winter using dark tones. And because the Pantone Colour of 2020 is Classic Blue, blue is going to be at the centre of our design choices here.
Your Living Room
When the nights get longer and the days get colder, the thing most people want to do when they finish work for the day is to draw the drapes and get comfy on the couch. Our lightweight linen curtains may be light but they are the ideal window dressing for those long, dark winter nights. The navy lightweight linen curtain adds real drama to your window dressing. It is available in a wide range of sizes so there is a size for you however big your window is. Combined with a new rug, cosy throws and some new cushions in a range of different textures, your living room will be somewhere you can’t wait to retreat to.
Your Dining Room
Of course, the main event for your dining room or area during the winter is your Christmas dinner, so it’s important to make sure that it has the wow factor. We have an extensive collection of table linen in a wide choice of colours, but our festive range of placemats, table runners and napkins is the only way to set your table this Christmas. Set these items on the table on top of one of our fabulous linen tablecloths in any colour that works for your interior because the silvery grey tone will suit any home. The sparkle in the fabric is the best way to add a little Christmas magic to your Christmas dinner.
We know that people often have a tendency to overlook their bedroom when it comes to decorating their home. The excuse for that is usually that no one ever sees their bedroom. However, this way of thinking ends up making your bedroom a very much unloved and overlooked room in which you don’t enjoy spending any time.
Our linen duvet covers and linen bedsheets will restore the romance to your boudoir. So, make sure that they are at the top of your Christmas list this year. The pale grey beige tones of the stone option are a glamorous way to add sophisticated tranquillity to your room. They work particularly well together and look fantastic as a lighter contrast in a room painted in a dark tone.
Like your bedroom, your bathroom is also often overlooked because no one spends much time in there but that’s no reason for ignoring it. You want guests as well as you and your family to enjoy spending time in your bathroom. You want to be able to look forward to enjoying a deep, long soak in the bath during the winter evenings. Our linen bath towels and hand towels will not only make you want to have a bath every single night, they will also make you want to invest in an infinity bath with jacuzzi jets!
- With Christmas dinner to prepare and New Year’s Eve nibbles to create, you spend a lot of time in your kitchen during the winter months. Treat yourself to a new linen apron (available in twelve different colours) and some smart new linen kitchen towels (available in six different colours). They’ll have you racing to get baking and cooking up a storm. Go on, you know you want to. It’s the chef’s prerogative! They also make a great present for any budding chefs you know.
