Regardless of the season it's nice to feel a warm cosy atmosphere in your home. However as we move into the colder months it becomes even more important to make your home an an inviting cosy place for you to relax and chill. There's way more to being cosy that just being warm it's the illusion you create and your furniture can contribute massively to this.

In this guide we offer some simple ways to help create that warmth we so desire as we move into the chillier Autumn and Winter months.

Consider Your Lighting Choices

 Candles definitely create the perfect atmospheric lighting that will add warmth to your home; however it is not always practical to have a naked flame in your living space. Table lamps are becoming increasingly popular not only for their practical lighting solutions but also for their beauty and style.

You can find the perfect table lamps in a nickel or brass finish along with a lamp shade of your choice that will have very similar warming effects to that of a candle. To complement the table lamp you may also want to purchase a light bulb labelled warm this will shine a rich intense light throughout your home all adding to the overall atmosphere.

Boost the comfort in your home by having blankets and throws on hand in your living room and bedroom. Fantastic if you have a leather sofa that can sometimes offer a cold feel draping a fluffy blanket across the back or on the arm can drastically transform the feel and look of your furniture.

Cushions are also great; the perfect decorative accessory for your bedroom or living room; select a warm colour such as a brown or cream and add them to your sofa or chairs.

Decorate Your Fireplace

Believe it or not your fireplace can change the whole atmosphere in your living space. An empty unused fireplace can often create coldness in your home. You can easily transform an unused fireplace into a warming focal point that sets the tone for your entire room. If possible filling your fireplace with logs is a great start and will add an authentic feel.

Additionally adding decorative accessories such as candles, photo frames and other knick knacks will create a cosy feel. What's more if you're looking to create a bold statement placing an overmantle mirror above your fireplace in a gold, cream or ivory finish will also contribute to the overall look creating a stunning centre piece.
