Layer, layer, layer
Just like fashion, the key to styling your home in winter is to layer with accessories. Choose cushions, blankets and throws in a variety of patterns and textures. A Masterweave Alpaca Boucle Natural Throw paired with a cushion from the new Bianca Lorenne range is the perfect finishing touch for any interior.

Decorate with texture
Tactile finishes are a guaranteed way of infusing your home with a sense of warmth and cosiness. Think faux fur, velvet and natural wool. For a stylish look that will work beyond the winter season try the MM Linen velvet beanbag in forest green and grey blue.

Not only do lined curtains look good but they are also great at insulating your home to keep warm in winter. Full length is best as this creates an air seal to effectively insulate your home. Draw them back during the day to let in as much of the winter sun as possible.
Winter Warming Deal: Free Thermal Lining, Dimout Lining or Bumph Interlining with your lined curtains.

A great alternative to curtains are Luxaflex Duettes. Luxaflex Duettes have a unique cellular construction which traps air – keeping the cold out and the warmth in. We like to think of them as just like wrapping a thermal blanket around your window!
