As the days are starting to get longer and the evenings are getting lighter, we can’t help but yearn for some summer sun. Sadly, it’s still a way off yet! But what if we told you you could inject a warm-weather feel into your home all year round? Now we’re talking!
By being savvy with your choice of colour, lighting and textures, you can break-through the winter blues and lift the mood by giving your home some much-needed warmth.
Get Creative With Colour
A good place to start is with your colour scheme. Summery shades like orange, yellow and red are warmer hues that will create a bright, sunny atmosphere. You can introduce this by being bold and adding them to a feature wall, or in a more subtle way through your choice of dining chairs and accessories.
With these brighter shades, you can always mellow out the look by having a mix of bolder colours alongside cooler hues. This will keep the look summery yet not too overpowering.
Consider Your Lighting
When it comes to lighting your home, you’ll want to have a considered balance of natural and artificial light. Table and floor lamps will create low lighting with a cosier mood, while pendants will keep the whole room well lit. To choose where to put your lighting, look at where the light naturally falls in the day and work out where extra lighting is needed at night.
Top Tip: Some bulbs have a softer, warm-weather glow, while others are stronger and brighter. Check the lumens and the type of bulb so it matches what you want to use the light for! You can find out more in our Lighting Buying Guide.
As the evening starts draws in, create an even cosier mood with a mix of scented candles:
