Winter is a time for comfort, for good food and warmth, for the touch of a friendly hand, and a talk beside the fire; it is the time for home. Most people worldwide love winters as it forms our character and brings out the best. It is a season of recovery and preparations. This winter, COVID will make our stay at our homes, which is the best time to heal ourselves and give time to our homes. It will not only keep you busy and away from depression but will also mend your home. Here are some ways to style our homes this winter.
Bedding is essential to style as it is where you will have rest and spend your night. It should be the warmest and the comfortable place in your home. Adding layers to your bed is secondary after layering yourself. So it would be best if you placed a cosy bedsheet, first of all, then cushions and feather pillows, and lastly, put the warmest quilt over it.
The second thing you can do is work on colours. Add bright colours in your surrounding or at least give a touch of warms colours. Paint your walls in bright colours like red or orange. It will not only give you a feeling of warmth but also brighten up your mood. In addition to this, as winter brings many events to celebrate, including Thanksgiving, Christmas, and new years, walls will work with the events’ home décor. If you like light tones, you can add some colours above the whites, like cushions and stuff.
The texture is another vital element to be looked at when using things in winters. Whatever you choose to place in your home, it should have a warm and cosy texture. Faux fur, denim, or leather can be the texture of the material you use, whether it’s a sofa, seats, or bedding.
Metals can add instant warmth in winters. As we know, metals have high thermal conductivity. They transfer heat to colder objects and absorb heat from the warmer objects as well. So you can add metal lamp shades or metal tables or consoles in your home to keep the warmth.
We see most of the houses are centrally air-conditioned and centrally heated, but if some houses are not, they can install the fire in their home. It will give the warmest and most cosy environment, and you will not need to have other expensive devices or heating systems.
Winter is the season of snowfalls. We see snow all over the places in this season. Our greenery and colours of nature are all covered by white snow. So keep in connection with the greenery and living nature, and to love the plants, you can put some plants and pots inside your home. Colours can be added through various other objects, but the natural greenery and oxygen would add to the fascination. Also, loving little ferns is a great hobby when in a quarantine.
You can add layers in the home in winters to give a warm cosy effect. Layers can be added by putting floor rugs, table rugs, sheepskins, heavy curtains, etc. They can be of faux fur or velvets to give winter looks. These will keep you surrounded by warmth and heat as you will be free to roam around the house without worry about catching a cold.
Lighting is very significant for the warm look in winters. White lights have a powerful impact on our minds; they keep us vigilant or focused. But we know winter is all about cosiness. Yellow lights give us the desired effect of warmth. It would be lovely to add candles and lit them to give a winter look at some time of the day. There are various designs of lamps for winters, you can add them too.
Rearranging furniture is very necessary for the winter season. You can rearrange your furniture to keep yourself away from all the cold air that may come in some way. You may also arrange your furniture somewhere close to windows to let the sun come in and give in some heat. It depends on you what area you want sun on and what position you place your furniture.
Winters call for warmth and love. It comes with changes in our lives and our surroundings. As winter is not a season, it is a celebration, and we celebrate it by changing ourselves too. Bringing up changes in our lifestyle, homes, and workplaces works wonder on soul therapy in winters.
