We need to face this now seriously! You can try to still deny – but the nights start to last longer – winter will come – sooner or later. Are you already prepared – better say – is your HOME ready for cozy hours after work and lazy weekends while the storms howling around your place?
We don’t talk about Christmas decorations, yet. That’s really too early. But we want to show you how to make your rooms that cozy – you won’t leave for the whole winter season. I collected great decor and interior ideas for your winter feeling 2019/20
Let’s have a look at the bible. The biggest designer of all. God. He started with light. And how could we be so ignorant, not to follow this great design idea? So let’s start with your lights.
I collected already lots of nice Ideas at Pinterest: Have a look there. You can pin your favorites on your own boards.
When I come home from university these days it’s already dark outside. Then I do my daily studying at my favorite place – my desk. Therefore I have arranged more than just one light source.
First an allover light, that gives the room a nice atmosphere and takes care that the contrast between the more powerful spot above my MacBook is not that strong. That’s better for my eyes.
I love scented candles. They help me to relax and feel comfortable while studying.
Same in the living room. Here you need good light for reading. So you can create a cozy reading area with some Spotlamps who will emit light from above directly to your reading stuff.
Besides the practical light sources, you can increase your cozy feeling with indirect lights, warm light sources, lampshades and – candles or lanterns. If you fear open fire – I can recommend you this nice lanterns, you can find now in every interior shop. Open lights should never be left unattended! Fragrance Lights can also help you to relax with your favorite note.
While I preferred these apple green accessories and interior pieces during summer, now I switch my main decor into warm and autumnal colors, earth colors, Bordeaux red or warm orange nuances. But also warm green nuances can give your room a comfy view.
Also, the texture changed into more fluffy and furry, high floor carpets and window stores made from velvet.
Velvet Stores have also a practical benefit. If you are living in an old house built at the end of the 19.th Century, the windows are not that good sealed, like in a brand new house. The cold creeps through this leaky old frames. Velvet Stores help you to avoid high heating costs. Close them in cold winter nights and they help to keep the warm air inside.
While I prefer these sisal carpets in the summertime, I roll them up and store them in the cellar. Changing it into this great high-floor carpets, what gives every room an extra cozy touch.
Pillows in all sizes have already taken place on my sofa. This makes this winter feeling great. And if you have a look into the shops you will find also these roughly knitted blankets that match perfectly to your winter style. What about a nice wooden basket where you can store these blankets decoratively? You can falt them alongside and roll it and stick it into the basket. This gives it a well-organized look.
Do you have a dog or a cat? Your four-legged flatmates will enjoy also these great poufs and will join you for a snuggle session.
I already miss these green and blooming times in summer. You too? So why don’t we bring in some greens into your rooms?
Living walls, solitaire huge Plants in the right place gives your rooms a supernatural feeling. Let it grow on places with daylight and if it is not enough – you can use this plant lights to ensure, that the plant has enough light to survive.
And if you spend your next weekend in nature, why not collect something nice decoration? Moss, chestnuts, break wood and other seasonal organic decoration you can find during a nice walk through the woods. Collect them ( as far it is allowed) and do a stylish floral arrangement on your own.
They have a real soothing effect. Indoor wells, you can find in all kinds at the moment. The only thing you need to check that they are really complete sealed. Nothing worst as if such an indoor well is ruining your wooden floors. Better test it first in your bathroom, or kitchen if there is no leak.
What was so common in the past – went rare today. A real open fireplace in the living room or the dining room. To install it you need to go through the official regulations of your local government. And they are not cheap. But if you have a nice TV you can transform it into an open bone fire. At Netflix, YouTube and other platforms, you can download several bone fire videos.
Take your favorite book, sit down into your reading chair and let the digital wood crack in the visual glow and enjoy the nice atmosphere of an open fireplace.
With these tips, I hope I could animate you to your own, cozy room styles you rather would not leave anymore. Write to me about your own Ideas.
Have a cozy season!
