This year has flown by, and we will soon be trading in the colours of autumn for wintery cheer. Whether you define yourself as a holiday buff or are still in denial that 2017 is around the corner, it is always great to transition your living space to reflect the magical season soon to be upon us. Small and inexpensive changes can cosy up your home in no time!
Comforting Scents for the Living Room
Nothing says “winter cheer” more than a cosy candle or two. Although we all love our floral and beach scents for the brighter months, there is something to be said about filling your living space with the warmth of apple pies and pine trees during winter. Yankee Candle has an incredible holiday set that can uplift any spirit that may be dreading cooler weather. Pair up a warming candle with a good blanket and cup of tea, and all is well with the world for now.
Spice up the Kitchen
Winter is the perfect opportunity to add some change to your shopping list by adding comfort foods. The holidays are known for stews, casseroles, Sunday dinners, pies and cakes; this allows lots of creative freedom in the kitchen. Whether you are an ambitious chef or not, there are plenty of food options available in order to get a hot meal on the table. On those cooler days when the thought of cooking a meal from scratch seems daunting, a quick call to Hungry House can get hot food delivered to the door and quickly into your family’s tummies!
Our bedrooms should always be a place of rest and relaxation, and the upcoming holidays should be no different. A current bedroom trend is to replace boring bedside tables with the lovely glow of twinkle lights strung above headboards, or twisted into a mason jar. This simple and inexpensive look gives off a festive look while also giving you ample light. Homedit has loads of ideas to dress up your bedroom with twinkly lights for the remainder of the year.
Don’t Forget the Bathroom
How can one dress up a bathroom for the wintery months? Along the same theme as our living room transition, the magical world of holiday scents can spice up the toilet. Swap your regular handwash for a peppermint or apple scented one, or pop one of these lovely reed diffusers from the White Company near the sink.
If you are not mentally prepared for snowmen and santa décor all around your living space quite yet, these small and inexpensive baby steps are a sure way to get you and your family in the festive mood.
