If there’s ever a time of year you want to spruce up the home, it’s over the Autumn-Winter period.

Splash of Paint
Most will say painting any room is a lot of work, but the trick to at quick winter change up is to paint just the one wall. Whether is a rust red, leave brown or another winter colour you like, painting it followed by adding some seasonal wall décor helps add the winter style at minimal effort! Anyone can paint one wall, right?
Whether you use them or not adding some winter accessories to the living room helps to create the festive living space you desire. An abundance of candles, blankets seasonal plants and ornaments create a space with a lot of character. Open spaces tend to look neater but don’t offer the same spirit as a space full of trinkets and oddly sized candles.
If you have a luxury dining table and matching chairs, adding winter warmth can be difficult, as you don’t want to take away from the furniture. So, wall hangings and adding some décor to the windows can add enough to the room without losing the main style. Candleholders, seasonal plants and trinkets are perfect.
Your rooms will really show the season with your choice of colour and to make the space look warm and friendly. Furniture can play a major part so if you normally have minimalistic furniture, make sure you add to it to make it feel and look comfortable.
