The weather is getting cooler and that means so are our homes. Its time to start thinking about your interiors and prepare for the winter ahead. It has been predicted to be the coldest winter in a decade. Before you start to decorate your home with an autumnal feel, make sure your home is ready for the harsh weather ahead. Clean your gutters so that there isn’t any leaf and debris build up which could cause a leak into your home.
Ensure you have enough firewood for your fireplace to last the winter or at least the first few months and that your chimney is clean. Stock up on the spices such as pumpkin, apple and mixed spice for all the baking you will be doing. If you don’t need them then add the smell of spice into your home with scented candles. Make sure all of your heating and your boiler is up to scratch and serviced. You don’t want your heating to cut out halfway through the winter. Finally clean out your fridge to make room for all of the winter goodies such as cheese, Bailey’s, chocolates and mince pies.
Once the logistics are done, it is now time to start decorating for autumn and winter. This season interior designs are seeing a lot richer colours such as peacock blue, deep rouge, berry tones and blacks as well as creating cosy corners perfect for winter movie nights. The best less permanent way to incorporate these style trends into your home is with accessories such as rugs, blankets, bedding, lamps and furniture.
