Styling your lounge for Winter

Interiors and lifestyle blogger Olivia Silk (@lustliving) shares tips to style a cosy Winter lounge.

A warm and cosy space for Winter

Add cosy textures to your lounge

Having a comfy sofa is key, but there's nothing quite like the comfort of soft cushions and luxurious throws to cuddle up under on these cold evenings. Nothing says Autumn/Winter quite like the sumptuous textures of faux fur- these cushions and throws are perfect for creating a cosy Winter retreat for your guests from the comfort of your sofa!

Create a warm atmosphere with lighting

Now that the dark nights are drawing in, you'll probably be spending a lot more time cosied up in your lounge, so it's a great time to add a bit of ambience with some warm lighting. Floor lamps are great if you don't have much space available but still offer a great amount of light. I absolutely love the Curva Floor Lamp in brass.

Add an inviting aroma

Scented candles

There's no greater flattery than when a guest visiting compliments you on how lovely your home smells. Am I right? Candles are a great way of adding an inviting aroma to your home but also help to create a cosy atmosphere too. Mix and match candles for custom scents and soft lighting.

Reed diffusers

If you prefer a safer alternative to lit candles then reed diffusers can be just as effective! They release a gentle, long-lasting scent so your lounge is always fragrant. As for me, I'll take both, you can never have enough home fragrance if you ask me...

Statement seating

Faux fur is an affordable way to add luxe textures to your home, especially in neutral tones. Add a statement item like this comfy beanbag that works as seating and a focal point. Pair furry and fluffy items with other materials such as wool or wood for an effortlessly stylish space.

On-trend metallic accents

My home is decorated in soft colours, accented with brass and gold tones to add some sparkle and edge. Metallic accessories are a great way to tap into this trend, and freshen up your space as we move into the festive season. Christmas is just around the corner, so this is a simple way to prepare for hosting parties.
