As the nights draw in and the temperature drops, our instinct is to hunker down and hibernate. So this month, we’ve put together some gorgeous ideas for interiors that will make you feel as snug as a bug in a rug.
As winter takes hold, the hearth becomes the heart of the home. So make sure you choose a stove that is as stylish as it is serviceable, and make sure you do your research before investing. Fireplace specialist Pinckney Green, based in Wick near Bristol, offer two top tips to make sure you find the right one – know your room size so you can work out the kilowatt output your stove should produce; and choose your type carefully, although wood burning stoves are cheaper and have bigger viewing windows, multi-fuel stoves offer the flexibility of using coal or wood. Then, once you’ve found the perfect centerpiece for your cosy living room, all you need to do is complement it with items in soft, neutral colours, lush textures, and tactile natural materials.
