I don’t know about you, but last week felt like Winter was on its way. With this new season nearly on our doorstep - It’s time to turn inward, embrace the chill and make your home even more inviting.
Nesting is officially in style, with cosy home decor on top of many wish lists. As we head into the cooler months, it’s time, once again, to retreat into our homes and make them feel as comfortable as possible.
While you always want your home to look chic, wouldn’t it be great if your home was nice and toasty during the winter months too? The verdict is in; cosy fabrics, warm, earthy tones, nature-inspired pieces, and soothing scents are taking over the autumn/winter design scene.
Whether you want to go shopping for some wintery decorations or work with what you've got, these ideas will help you prepare for hibernation in style. No major makeover is necessary. Focus on accents like blankets and big-impact features like paint or a centrepiece rug to design a home you won't mind hibernating in.
Winter decor is all about incorporating vivid, textural layers and colours that reflect the season. Following are a few winter decorating ideas that will guarantee a cosier climate to snuggle up in.

We all have a desire for edgy accents in our homes. We are drawn to the luxe simplicity of a high-end hotel room and the carefully strategised floor plans of staged houses on the market. Edgy accent pieces are a sure-fire way to add a layer of luxury to any space.
Incorporate one or two statement accents into your design. Persian and Oriental Rugs are a staple collected decor piece that each and every home should acquire. Otherwise, designer lighting or beautiful art collections can be displayed to draw the eye and start a conversation.
BRING IN THE OUTDOORS

Something about winter just begs for more nature-inspired decor. In countries like the UK with months-long winters, residents can’t spend as much time outdoors as they would like. So what’s our year-round solution?
Incorporating natural elements like wood, stone, and raw, organic textiles into our interiors. Not only are these elements on-trend, but they’re also versatile, calming, and timeless. Select the furnishings that speak to you, that reflect your decorating tastes and individual preferences.
Enjoy a natural outdoor vibe inside your home; nature-inspired accessories span a wide range of neutrals, making them easy to include in diverse aesthetics.
WARM EARTHY TONES

Get that winter warmth you're craving with sunny tones and deep wood finishes. Orange, red, and yellow are the conventional colours of autumn/winter. But designers are increasingly turning to other nature-inspired hues to create refined autumn/winter colour combinations.
We gravitate toward warm, richer tones come autumn/winter, such as deep greens, blues, and browns. Lay the foundation with a rug, then paint an accent wall, add a throw blanket, or set the table with new glasses—introducing deep hues is a sure-fire way to get cosy this winter.
Our Yalameh Rugs are famous for their rich, earthy tones. Take a sneak peak at the three we have hand selected for this post, or go straight over to our collection here.

There is nothing like a romantic dinner for two, or three, or four or more. Much like the kitchen, the dining room is the heart of the home - it's where you enjoy delicious meals and quality time with family and friends.
An intimate dining space is sophisticated and luxurious, with stylish textures and colours. Creating a devoted area can really add a sense of enchantment to your meal.
There is a slew of inexpensive design projects you can tackle over a weekend or in a matter of minutes to take your dining area to the next level. If love is in the air, here are some examples of the most elegant autumn/winter dining.
