The clocks have gone back, the evenings are darker and the nights are a lot chillier. It’s the perfect time to start thinking about levelling up the cosiness in your holiday home. Sometimes heading inside to wrap up warm can be the best feeling after a day of exploring outdoors. So having the ultimate cosy space to come back to wrap up warm is essential.
There’s nothing worse than winter in a space that doesn’t give you all the warm home comforts. With a few simple adjustments to your holiday home you can make it feel like welcoming even in winter.
As the cold weather approaches, soups, hot drinks and warming stews make a comeback. Make sure that in your kitchen you have large pots, casserole dishes and even a slow cooker so you can indulge on these winter favourites. Don’t forget some large mugs too so you can make the ultimate hot chocolate too.
Blankets and throws
Nothing screams winter like a cosy blanket to snuggle up in. Not only are blankets and throws another layer to keep you toasty warm but they also make rooms feel warmer and more inviting to be in. Team this up with some fluffy cushions and maybe even a rug for an extra luxurious cosy space.
Choosing warmer colours in winter is guaranteed to warm up your holiday home. Colours such as reds, oranges, yellows and browns make a room more inviting especially in colder months. Cold colours include, white, grey and blue so try to avoid these colours and go for colours with warmer undertones.
A cosy environment not only is determined by warmth and textures but it also relies on subtle elements like smell and light. To make your holiday home extra cosy you can introduce candles with wintery smells such as berries and cinnamon. Remember if you have pets to take care to have candles in clear spaces where they cannot be knocked over.
For lights, decorating your home with warm lights as opposed to natural lights will instantly add cosiness to your holiday home. As a quick transition lots of people choose fairy lights to achieve this which also are great to keep up throughout the festive season too.
