In the midst of dreary depressing winter days, bringing colour and warmth into your living space can make all the difference in lifting your spirits. With just a few well chosen accessories the dull winter doldrums can be turned around – allowing you to relax in a cosy cheery corner. FASHION FOR HOME offers a variety of warm, colourful accents that facilitate an effortless and economical room makeover.
The deep red-gold hues of copper in the Studio Tea light Set and Studio Bowl bring a subtle radiance into a room without being overt or overbearing. The hammered finish gives these timeless pieces depth and texture, and a couple of candles in the Tea Light Set reflect the light to give your room a toasty glow.
One of the easiest quick fixes for adding a jolt of colour and personality to a room is the good old throw pillow. The effect is twofold – a sofa or armchair with a couple of scattered pillows exudes comfort and relaxation, and a punch of the right hues can elicit that summery feeling you’re searching for. The best thing about cushions is that they’re interchangeable – it’s easy to switch them when the season changes or the mood strikes. Studio and Furnitive offer an array of colours and patterns in warm wools and natural cottons.
A well chosen piece of artwork can be a great jumping off point for setting the right tone in a space. The Allure Oil Painting from FASHION FOR HOME has a combination of cool and warm colours, making it a flexible piece if you like to change your decor more frequently – with red tones in the winter and cooler blues in the summer.
Fireplaces add instant ambience, inviting you to curl up with a hot cocoa and a good book. The Vesuvius Table Fireplace from FASHION FOR HOME is an easy, inexpensive way to get that crackling toasty feeling without having the fuss of a big renovation or the bother of chopping wood. Small and portable, you can lounge in the living room under a woolly blanket like this furnitive one, and even move it to the dining room for a wintry dinner party.
