There's nothing quite like surrounding yourself with layers of warmth to make your home feel extra cosy when it's cold out, and one of the easiest ways to achieve this snug atmosphere is by mastering the art of layering textiles and throws!

We're experts in interiors here at Taskers, and we understand the importance of soft furnishings in adding a touch of personal style and comfort to any living space, especially during the colder months. So, with that in mind, we’ve pulled together some expert tips to help you enhance your winter layering game.

Try mixing different textures and fabrics 

Creating a comfortable and aesthetic living space can be an exciting process. One fantastic way to achieve this is by experimenting with various textures and fabrics. You can create a cosy and visually stunning space by blending materials like knits, soft cotton, and luxurious velvets (and any other textures you can find!).

For example, you can combine a chunky knit pillow, like our Dreamweavers Cobble Black Cushion, with a smooth velvet sofa, like our Duresta Connaught Grand Sofa, creates a fascinating contrast that instantly makes the space inviting. You could even a throw in a fun texture into the mix. The layers of texture add depth and warmth to the environment, making it a perfect place to relax and unwind. Additionally, can create a plush and luxurious feel underfoot by layering a sheepskin rug like our Sheepskin Natural Quad Rug over a sleek carpet, adding to theoverall comfort of the space!

Experiment with colours and patterns

Winter doesn't have to be all about red and green. You can add a touch of warmth and personality to your home by introducing rich, deep hues and playful patterns. Mix and match throws with patterns like plaids, stripes, and geometrics, and complement them with colours that complement the season, such as deep purples, forest greens, or calming blues. And don't be afraid to experiment! Layering patterns and colours can add depth and visual interest, not to mention personality, to your living space.

Always consider balance

When decorating any room, be it the living room, a bedroom or a sitting room, its essential to remember that achieving a harmonious look is key to creating an inviting and visually appealing space. One way to do this is by maintaining balance and symmetry throughout the room by evenly distributing furniture and decor around the space. Remember to consider the size and shape of the room, as well as the natural lighting and overall colour scheme, when making design decisions. 

With these simple tips, you can easily transform your living space into a cosy and inviting oasis. Don’t forget to pay attention to the details, play with textures and colours, and let your personality shine through. With a little bit of effort, your home can become a true reflection of your unique style and taste!
