Cosy Vibes: Creating A Snug Interior Ready For Autumn And Winter

Whatever the season, there’s nothing quite like that feeling you get when you settle down and get cosy at the end of the day. If you’ve got a bit of spare time to relax and take a breath with your feet up, you’ll want to do it in a warm and inviting space. With our busy lives, it’s so important to take that time for ourselves and to feel at our most relaxed within our home environment. Whether it’s the little touches here and there, or a larger focal point within a room, our interiors really influence our mood. There are always things that can be done to help us stay comfy. The following are some ideas, inspiration, and advice for those who want to get those cosy vibes at home, just in time for the cold weather seasons ahead.

Surrounded By Comfort
It’s worth having a think about the places you relax most within your home. If you have a larger room that you want to draw in, why not think about popping a deeper, richer colour on the wall. Or perhaps you feel most comfortable surrounded by a lighter palette, these can often be livened up with a bright pop of colour or a metallic hue. Textural touches on your walls can also add a cosy feel; brick cladding can be great for inside and outside walls, and you’ll get that NYC loft-style interior. For those wanting to take baby steps, fittings, cushions and art are a great way to introduce new shades and textures into a space. Collecting images and creating a moodboard is a great first step in discovering what you’re drawn to, so it’s time to start scrolling through Pinterest and your interior mags.

Time To Chill
Your senses often help to influence how you are feeling, so it’s key to think about them when creating a relaxing mood and cosy atmosphere. Soft lighting and candlelight are are both simple ways to calm down a room, allowing you to unwind with ease. Go one step further with a scented candle, to really chill out in the evening. There are a range of scents, such as lavender, chamomile and mandarin, which are renowned for their calming properties and an endless choice of candles tailored towards relaxation for you to choose from. We all crave sinking into a soft chair or wrapping ourselves up with a duvet in bed at the end of a long day. Investing in quality soft furnishings, from cushions to mattresses can really retain a cosy feeling to your home. If you are thinking about investing in items that you plan to have around for a while, it’s never a good idea to impulse buy.

Treat Yourself 
It’s that simple! Give yourself a treat to look forward to, you totally deserve it. It could be a glass of your favourite wine, a face mask or a slice of cake. If it helps you to feel good, it’ll help you unwind. Maybe fresh flowers are your thing, pop the vase next to where you intend to settle in for the night and they’ll really enhance that homely feeling. Now, pop your feet up, and get cosy!
