Winters have set in and it’s the perfect time to enjoy them to the fullest in the warmth of your homes. It’s the right time to pep up your space and add a bit of glitz to make it lively, charming and cozy.

This is that time of the year when you have to be on your toes to host your family and friends. So here are some hacks to make your home look stylish and winter ready.

Use vibrant colours

Adding vibrant colours is a good option to make your space akin to the winters as sometimes it might be a bit gloomy with the sun not shining and a bit of a hazy weather. This option can be used in multiple ways, be it with a portion of your wall or just simple fabrics to add to your furnishings in the form of cushions, table mats, runners or even quilts or bed sheets. Another way is by adding a lively artifact to a corner that will liven up your space.

Use your lights differently

We all put rice/fairy lights outside our homes; how about putting some in a jar or old wine bottles to accentuate the corners? You can easily paint them using water based fabric colours and use them to display your orchids and lilies, creatively.

Add a Rug to your floor

Adding a rug is also a good way to keep yourself cozy in the comfort of your home. A great rug serves dual purpose. Firstly, it makes you feel warm and secondly it gives tremendous character and style to your space. It is important to have a comfortable seating arrangement for long nights and get-togethers, so place rugs around the sofa and your lonely couch with some puffy cushions to lean on! Try and avoid using synthetic rugs and go for wool rugs/carpet, instead. Wool absorbs humidity, thus keeping the place dry. Wool is also dirt and dust mite resistant.

Glittery Christmas

Bring some sparkle into your home! A little amount of glitter makes the space fashionably festive. You can go for gold or silver cushion covers, small coffee table runners, platters, sparkling picture frames and vases etc. Make sure you don’t go overboard with glitter!

Indoor landscaping

Introduce some indoor plants to give a hint of life and freshness to your home. You can use rice/fairy lights to make them pop even in the corner of the room! Few plants are excellent for indoors as they supply good amount of oxygen and grow in any weather condition without regular watering and sunlight. For example – Snake Plant, Spider Plant, Aloe Vera, Money Plant, Bamboo, Yucca, Jasmine, Lavender, and Rubber Plant etc. You can get metal planters or planter stands for a better look.

Tea lights and Candles

Keep your space well-lit at all times during this festive season. Tea lights and scented candles are perfect mediums to keep the house vibrant and aromatic. You can pick a nice Moroccan holders, metal or wooden tea light holders or even clear glass can be filled with water and exotic pebbles to leave your candles floating in them. There are a lot of ideas and it totally depends on how much you are willing to innovate. From your dining table to terrace, almost every area can be accentuated with candles!
