During the winter months, and indeed throughout the entire year, it is always a pleasure to have your friends, family members, and other loved ones over for a dinner party or a simple cup of coffee and a chat.
Far from being ashamed of your home, you should, instead, be proud to show off your natural and private habitat, and one way to ensure pride prevails is to look to improve the overall atmosphere and aesthetics.
With that being said, here is how to make your home warmer and more inviting.
Soft Textiles & Textures
Hygge, if you are not already familiar, is a Scandinavian design which is essentially a cross between a luxury ski lodge and a snuggly winter living room aesthetic, and even if you are not wanting to entirely embrace Scandinavian chic, then you should still take inspiration from the materials used.
Choose a mixture of different blankets, cushions, and throws in different shades of the same three or four colors to create layers, perfect for cooler months and a fantastic and cost-effective way of creating an inviting atmosphere.
Bean Bag Furniture
There is nothing more comfortable and relaxing, for people of any age, than lounging on a comfortable, stylish, and surprisingly affordable lounger bean bag chair, available in a myriad of colors, shapes, and sizes.
- A fun and entertaining alternative to regular seating
- Improvements in posture and lessening of backache
- Ideal for any room
- Easily transported
- Perfect for the home and garden
Invest in a Porch Swing Chair
Often, when overhauling the aesthetics of their property, some people forget that the front garden and backyard are both key players in creating a more inviting and warmer atmosphere in the property.
Porch swing chairs are not only the ideal space to relax in the shade on a hot summer’s day with a book, but a beautiful statement piece that is so much more affordable than you may think. Additionally, porch swing chairs provide a safe seating option for the older adults and elderly people in your family to enjoy the garden without having to sit on uncomfortable plain wooden furniture.
Personalize Your Rooms
Personalization involves the injection of your and the rest of your family’s personality, in terms of color, artwork, statement pieces, and also having family portraits and photographs on shelving units and windowsills.
Another key way to personalize your interior living spaces is to experiment with candles, oil burners, aromatherapy diffusers, and wax melts with different scents, and spend time thinking about how different smells make you feel. Scents and smells are such a calming influence on a person and can entirely change the atmosphere of a room.
