As the colder weather approaches, now is the ideal time to get your home in good decorative order before the Christmas festivities kick off. If you’re intending on having lots of gatherings and a big family get together then you will want to have your home looking its best. Whilst taking on a decorating project can be intimidating for some, it doesn’t have to be. It can be so easy to transform your home with simple changes which don’t need to cost a fortune either! Here are some interior design ideas to aid you in transforming your home this winter:

 

Keep an eye on Pinterest for inspiration

It can be difficult to know where to begin with a new interior design project. Thankfully the internet is eternally on-hand with good advice and tips always on the other end of a search engine. Sites like Pinterest, however, are especially helpful as lifestyle bloggers and brands spend hours assembling boards full of design ideas that can easily be replicated in your own home. It is well worth spending some time assembling a mood board of your favourite themes, colours of textures whenever you find yourself lacking fresh ideas!

 

Never underestimate the importance of a comfortable bed

Research shows that we can spend up to 1/3 of our lives asleep. Whilst this definitely won’t feel the case during winter when you’re getting up in the dark, it’s important to invest in your bed. A new bed doesn’t need to cost a fortune but will always be a good investment – it’s so important to make sure that you get plenty of good quality sleep! If you feel like treating yourself, you can always invest in a TV bed which will allow you to watch your favourite TV programmes or films whilst tucked under your duvet, such as these ones from Bedstar.

 

Use autumnal colours as your base

Autumn is known for its magnificent display of gorgeous reds, oranges and golden hues and these can easily transform a space when implemented within your home. Whilst it’s not exactly ideal painting time at the moment as it will take longer for the paint to dry, this doesn’t mean that you can’t use the colours in soft furnishings around the home. Perhaps a few scatter cushions or a nice cosy throw which will help you stay warm in the evening would make a nice addition to any home. Furthermore, they are known to bring a feeling of warmth to a room which is ideal for days when it is freezing outside!
