How To Get Your Home Ready For Winter

With the days beginning to cool down in the southern hemisphere, we are starting to spend more time indoors. Now is the perfect time to give our homes a cosy refresh and make it the winter oasis you’ve always dreamed of. 


There’s no better place to start than the foundation of your room. By adding a rug to your space, you’re adding another layer of insulation. This will help keep your feet nice and toasty! During the cooler months, we love opting for rugs with a higher pile that you can really sink your feet into creating an even more comfortable and cosy vibe. High-pile wool rugs work great for this. Styles like our Camilla, Maya or Alina wool rugs all have a luxurious and fluffy wool pile. If you’ve got kids or pets, or simply would prefer a low-maintenance rug that you don’t need to worry about any spills or mess, our ultra-plush TUMBLUXE washable rugs would be perfect for you. Our TUMBLUXE rugs have a sumptuous fluffy pile that’s cashmere soft. With the added benefit of being spill-friendly, if you have any accidents, you can simply spot-clean the stain by hand, or pop it in the washing machine! Some of our best-selling styles are Cabanela, Patina, and Logan.  

Adding texture and layers into other areas of your space also helps creating an inviting space during the cooler seasons. Drape extra throws and blankets over your sofa and stack up extra pillows and cushions on top will help create a space you can’t resist relaxing in! More luxurious and sumptuous fabrics such as velvet and heavier wool weaves work well. Embrace the darker days by opting for warm rich tones that evoke the feeling of winter. Such as deep reds, forest greens, navy blues, and warm browns. These colours will add a real depth and richness to your decor. 



Create a warm and inviting ambience by incorporating candlelight into your decor. Place candles in lanterns, hurricanes, or candle holders throughout your home to add soft, flickering light. Scented candles with fragrances like cinnamon, pine, or vanilla can also enhance the cosy atmosphere. 

Ambient lighting such as lamps and wall lights create an inviting atmosphere. Opt for warm, soft lighting to create a cosy and inviting ambiance in your home. Use lamps with soft white or warm-toned bulbs, and consider adding string lights or fairy lights for extra sparkle. Dimmer switches can also help adjust the lighting to suit the mood. Think about changing up your lampshades to give your lights a new look! Right now we are loving scalloped edging and natural linen looks. 


Bring the beauty of the outdoors inside by incorporating natural elements into your decor. Display seasonal greenery, such as pine branches, eucalyptus, or holly, in vases or as garlands. Add decorative elements like pine cones, birch logs, and branches to evoke a rustic winter charm. 

To keep the natural theme, add a natural fibre rug to your space. From jute, wool or cotton, there’s a natural fibre to suit every home!
