Whatever your style, whether you prefer a more modern, minimalist space, or something with a bit more of a classical twist, you can be sure we’ve got exactly the right furniture you need to create your perfect living room.

So, with Autumn upon us, and Winter fast approaching, you might be thinking about turning your luxurious living room space into a cosy winter nest that’s perfect for when you want to snuggle up under a warm throw and enjoy a nice hot drink after a long day. With that in mind, here are our top 3 tips on how you can add some indulgent touches to your space – just in time for winter.

Add some warm light fixtures

Lighting is one of the key elements that you can alter to create a relaxing ambience within your living room space. Smaller items like table lamps and candles all provide a really effective way of creating a warm ambience within your living room. Changing up your lightbulbs can also make a huge difference, particularly to your overhead lighting fixtures. In order to create the kind of warm cosy atmosphere you want for your winter nest, you want to aim for yellow lighting that gives a cosy feel, so we’d recommend opting for a soft white bulb between 2,700 and 3,000K.

Layer up the cosy textures

As the weather gets colder, we crave the added warmth provided by our heaters, throws, and cushions. As well as providing you with the practical benefit of adding warmth, these additional features are also great for adding extra textures and intrigue to your space. Velvet, bouclé and wool are all proving popular at the minute, but don’t feel like you’re limited to these choices! Consider adding some extra warmth and character with wood and gold finishings and a soft rug to warm your toes!

Mix in some natural colours

By changing up your colour palette, you can really bring a completely new perspective to your lounge space. Since we’re aiming for a warm and cosy feel, forget harsh whites and magnolia, and focus your attention on earthy tones to ground your design. Charcoal, browns, and muted greys all play really well off each other to create a warm, autumnal setting. When paired with your newly adapted lighting scheme, you’ll have that delightfully cosy winter nest feel down to a tee.

All of these ideas can be incorporated really easily within any kind of living room design. And what’s more, if you’re thinking of upgrading your furniture or you’re searching for more advice on how you can revamp your space, feel free to come by our newly refurbished showroom, which now includes themed displays, room sets showcasing lounge and dining furniture, an expanded bedroom furniture studio and brand new lighting and home accessories departments.
