Beat the winter chill with a cosy interior

Winter has arrived in full swing here in the Southern Hemisphere and that means turning up the heaters! By making a few easy styling changes, you can create the perfect cosy space in your home and beat the winter chill!

Layers and textures

Layering textures and fabrics is the perfect way to add warmth to your living spaces and to trap in the heat.

Drape a throw over the couch in the living room, or the end of your bed. A good quality throw not only adds style to your interior but is also an invitation to get comfortable with your favourite book or watch a movie on a cold winter evening.

Choose something like our Bakuba Throw with natural fibres and a neutral colour to create a relaxed feeling, while still remaining luxe.

Replace your bright summer cushions with deeper coloured tones made from natural materials such as linen and cotton to create a feeling of warmth. Remember that the insides of your cushions are just as important and investing in feather cushion inners will ensure your cushions are soft and comfortable.

Make things even more cosy by mixing the colours and patterns of your cushions or even the sizes. Cushions are an easy way of changing the mood of a room and playing around with different patterns keeps your living area interesting and inviting. We have a great range of cushions which are perfect for mixing and with a generous size of 50 x 50 cm they make the couch all the more inviting.

Lighting is key in creating an inviting mood and soft lighting will always make a space feel cosier. Table and floor lamps work great in any room of the house.


Another great way to brighten up a space in winter is to add candles. Placing a few candles around the room, is the perfect way to create a relaxed and romantic feel. It is also a great energy saver as you don’t need to use any other lights. And to create the perfect winter evening, light an aromatherapy candle or two.
