Your Checklist for a Cosy Home

With autumn gloom lurking and winter on its way, why not take the opportunity to get cosy? At Skandium, we’ve put together a list of tips to inspire you to enjoy the inside when the outside isn’t so inviting.

Blend old and new

Make the most of classics and vintage pieces, and when bringing in the new, aim for pieces that can be passed down the generations. This creates a timeless interior that you and your family will recognise as home for many years.

Add some texture

The little details are what make your home share your personality. Thick materials and a variety of fabrics can warm you up and cosy blankets give you something to snuggle under when it gets cold outside.

Play with wood

Take this tip literally – wooden toys are timeless and bring joy to children and adults alike. For more grown-up spaces, natural materials provide warming tones and mean you can enjoy nature while staying cosy.

Light it gently

Soft lighting creates a glow that welcomes you home after a long day, brightening up your mood even when it gets dark early. Never underestimate the warming effect of a gentle, subtle light.

Love your greenery

Bring your space to life with plants. Not only can they be a cheerful decoration during the winter, it’s always comforting to have a leafy companion.

Make some tea

Winter might be the season of colds and bad weather, but it’s an excuse to tuck yourself up in a cosy armchair with a soothing cup of tea. 

Follow these tips and you’ll be warm and comfortable, no matter how grey and gloomy it is outside. For a little extra hygge, explore Skandium’s get cosy items, and let us know your tips for a snuggly home on Instagram.
