The winter home is a place to escape to, to recharge and rejuvenate.

How to style your winter home

Tips to make your own winter sanctuary that feels warm, cosy, and a haven from the outside world.

As the nights draw in and frost is on the ground, we spend more time than ever indoors. Use the time to slow down and enjoy cosy evenings by the fire. Small changes can make this even more enjoyable. Choose your style or mix and match from the points below.

Rustic

  • Bring the outdoors in with natural textures, like wool, wood and linen
     
  • Choose off-whites for a warm yet simple and uplifting backdrop
     
  • Add unglazed ceramic candle holders for tactile textures and cosy light

Clean and contemporary

  • Choose a simple colour palette that is calm yet inviting – blush pinks work well with whites and Nordic greys
  • Keep it simple – don’t go overboard on accessories and decorations, but choose meaningful items
  • Opt for varnished or glazed finishes for a cleaner look

Luxe

  • Embrace deeper textures, like sheepskin rugs, velvet decorations and chunky knits
  • Use glass and metallics with candles to elevate the luxury of candlelight
  • Play with luxurious colours, such as deep greens and antique golds
     

Our style secret: layering

Make your home feel more meaningful with layers of colour, texture and scents.

  • Layer textures like glass, ceramics, wood and wool to create a space that’s cosy and nurturing. Linens and brushed cottons can awaken our sense of snuggling down on darker nights.
  • Layer colours, combining hues to make your own uplifting colour palette. Blush pink is feminine and opens the heart. Green is grounding and fresh. Golds and yellows can be especially uplifting, but choose the shades you love most.
  • Layer scents, using the Christmas tree as a starting point, if you have one! Combine that lovely pine fragrance with spiced citrus scents, like oranges and cloves, or woody tones for an intimate, earthy feel.
