As winter arrives, creating a warm and cosy living space is essential. Your home should be a sanctuary that provides comfort and respite from the cold weather outside. 

By incorporating thoughtful interior touches and embracing the power of paint, transform your living space into a cosy haven with these tips this winter.


The power of colour

One of the easiest ways to warm up your living space is by incorporating colour into your interior design. Try the Dulux 2023 Colour Futures Flow Palette for a balanced combination of cool and warm tones, which showcases the beauty of contrast.

The palette is said to be inspired by the rhythms and tides of nature, this subtle and timeless palette brings a feeling of fluidity, freshness and equilibrium.


“By pairing Wild Wonder and Bright Skies, you can create a very warm and inviting space. Another tip would be to layer the space with different finishes such as wood and creamy linens to add more warmth,” says Dulux Colour Expert Palesa Ramaisa.


Play with light and texture

Nothing says winter like soft and plush textures. You can enhance the warmth of your living space by incorporating cosy fabrics into your decor.

Pro tip: be sure to not overdo your decor elements.


“Adding texture with chunky throws or switching out your scatter cushion covers are an affordable way of making over your space for the season. Another simple way to add warmth to a space is the use of ambient light. It’s amazing what a standing lamp can add to a space or how adding your favourite candles can add a luxe feel,” says Ramaisa.


By implementing a few of these tips, you can create a space that feels like a refuge from the cold weather outside and create a cosy ambience that embraces the spirit of winter while making your home a comfortable retreat for you and your loved ones.
