The nights are longer and there’s a pervasive chill in the air – winter is certainly here! To help you create a warm and inviting home this winter, we’ve put together a list of our cosiest decorating tips.

Don’t forget that we also have some amazing Winter Warming Deals on curtains, blinds, furniture, beds, flooring and more until the 24th of June 2018! Check out all the deals and our catalogue here.

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.

Lined Curtains

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.

Luxaflex Duettes

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!

Add a splash of colour with wallpaper

Wallpaper is a quick and easy way to transform a stark and cold room and we have a wide range of options here at McKenzie & Willis. For a dramatic and rich look try the Villandry wallpaper by Zoffany.

Wooden Furniture

Wooden furniture is renowned for its ability to bring warmth and character to a space. The warm honey tones of the solid oak used throughout the Ethnincraft range can work in just about any interior. Or, if you prefer the deep hues of dark walnut, go for the luxe Honeycomb Mirror buffet by French Country.
