The first snow of the winter has fallen, and here I was thinking it was still Autumn! But even if you’re not under a blanket of snow (albeit a very thin blanket) like the people of Aberdeen, your thoughts might soon be turning to cosying up for winter. You can make sure that your home has that essential warm and comfortable atmosphere by sprucing it up for the season.
Winter is a time when everyone has plenty of visitors so making it warm and welcoming on dark nights is an essential. The key colours for winter are traditionally red, gold and green but this year Plumbs are pegging deep purples in violet and mulberry.
Our newly launched Autumn and Winter ranges consist of the ‘Palazzo Anniversary Collection’, the ‘Bijoux Collection’ and our ‘Timeless Classics’. When we launched them we made sure not only did they have plenty of these on trend colours that would be perfect for the winter season but lots of other colours that would look great throughout the year.
A great fabric for the winter is out Luxury Cord Velour design in Mulberry. It is a sumptuous chenille fabric meaning it offers outstanding washability with no shrinkage, quick drying technology with no need to iron and is so soft to touch, making it perfect for snuggling up to on a cold winter’s night. It is also available in other wintery colours such as chocolate, purple, and for the brave, black. With such a wide range of fabrics available, there is a massive selection of warming colours to choose from.
For a more subtle change to your living room, our made to measure curtains can offer instant warmth. For the winter months you can have thickly lined curtains in a wide selection of fabrics, beautifully lined to keep the heat in.
If you don’t want to make drastic changes to you room decorate it with scented candles and seasonal flowers, cosy scatter cushions, and fleece throws. Spiced apple and cinnamon are the key fragrances for the wintertime. Lighting is important too so use lamps for more intimate ambience with warm luminescent light bulbs or burn candles to create that cosy atmosphere.
