Treat your interior space the same as you would your winter wardrobe, and change things up within your home with decor items that will give you the comfort your body craves. Do this with incorporating soft changes in the form of cosy throws, textured scatters, warmer colour tones on the walls and wall art.
Every South African will tell you about our fantastic weather in summer. Warm sunny days, thunderstorms in the afternoons and clear starry skies at night. What they forget to mention is our bitterly cold winters with snow in some parts, icy cold winds that cut through everything and even miserable rain in the Western Provinces.
When it comes to interior design, there is a growing trend towards perceiving the bathroom as a comfortable retreat rather than a mere utilitarian necessity. This enlightened view has brought with it a range of exquisite bathroom finishes, décor and style, set to feature at this year’s Decorex Joburg 2019, taking place at the Gallagher Convention Centre from 7 to 11 August.
And in some areas of South Africa it’s already cold enough for another throw on the bed at night. We’ve rounded up our top winter must haves for each room, and we think you’ll really like them. And no, it’s not blankets. If you didn’t know that you need blankets for winter then how have you survived life this far?
Summer is over and with the cold weather around, it’s time to cozy up your bedroom for winter. For many of us, there is nothing better than watching the rain while nestled in bed under the covers enjoying some hot chocolate or your favourite Nespresso!
We can all agree that a winter bedroom should be delightfully cozy, comfortable and with a warm atmosphere. Besides a full renovation or buying a new property, there are many simpler ways to turn your bedroom into a warm, winter retreat.
