A Lick Of Paint 

It’s a wonder what a new splash of paint can do to transform a room. But you needn’t paint your entire living room. Save that extra cash for decor elements instead and paint just one feature wall in your living room. The top colours for winter 2020 are champagne, navy blue, olive green, deep red and charcoal. Pick one of these bold colours to spruce up your feature wall or invest in a wallpaper in similar colours. Make sure that this colour will match your existing furnishings, as you do not want to have to purchase a whole new set of chairs and curtains.

Where To Get It?

You may want to consult with a paint specialist too, to find the best quality paint for your wall. Visit Builders Warehouse in store to find a consultant or browse through their online paint selection to find what you’re after. Their online paint calculator is super helpful when it comes to figuring out exactly how much paint you will need to get the job done. You can also check out their blog for helpful tips and tricks on all things paint and decor.

Cushions & Comfy Throws

Nothing says luxury comfort like scatter cushions and lush throws. Deck out your living space with a few of these added touches of class this winter. Don’t be afraid to mix and match when it comes to the size and pattern of your cushions. Just remember to stick within your colour palette and your upgraded living room will come together in no time.

Where To Get It?

We love @Home’s range of scatter pillows and throws. Spoil yourself a little by investing in a couple of their luxury velvet cushions and a mink throw for your sofa. It’s these small added accents that can take your living space from dull to daring. Plus, you’ll be kept nice and snug throughout the chilly season.

Sweet Scents

Liven up your living space with welcoming scents this winter. Whether you choose to place a few scented candles around the room or a reed diffuser, this simple element can make your living room feel a whole lot more inviting. Seeing as its winter, steer clear of fresh, flowery smells and try out rich, woody scents instead. We personally adore the smell of a cinnamon scented candle burning, but you may consider sandalwood, lavender or sage instead. Not only will your home smell lovely, but these scents can help boost your mood and ensure better sleep during the winter months.

Where To Get It?

Mr Price Home is the place to go for spectacular scents on a budget. Their candle sets and holders are stylish without the added price tag. Order yourself an assortment for your living room through their online store. They have a number of promotions on home decor items and fragrances this winter. Get your hands on 4 for 3 fragrance or candle specials while stocks last!

Quirky Coffee Table

You only need one piece of statement furniture in a room to make an impact. This winter, gift yourself with a new quirky coffee table. Industrial-style furniture is back this season, bringing chic lines and a minimalist feel to your living space. If you are lucky enough to live in a trendy Joburg loft space or an open concept living space, this is the ideal item of furniture to add to your lounge area or TV room. Just be sure to pick something with enough weight and stature to stand up to your new chunky cushions and lush winter throws.

Where To Get It?

Small businesses need your help during these trying times. Show your support by exploring Hello Pretty – a local online marketplace where buyers and sellers meet. Here you can find a superb variety of homeware and decor items, including handcrafted coffee tables. We adore this retro coffee table by Kurve Designs. With its functional book nook and vintage touches, it’s the perfect addition to any living space in need of a makeover.

Greenery

Bring the outside indoors this winter by introducing greenery to your living space. A touch of nature can truly transform a dull space into something magical. Indoor plants also increase oxygen levels in your home, improving both your physical and mental well-being. Clear out cluttered areas of your living space to make room for a few ferns, Monsteras or low maintenance succulents. If you’ve got a green thumb, consider nurturing a pretty orchid this winter. You can transplant it to your garden once spring rolls around, but for now it will provide a delicate touch and fresh fragrance to your living area.

Where To Get It?

There are many wonderful garden centres and nurseries located around Johannesburg. Visit your nearest one to find what you need to up the green space inside your home. But if it’s orchids you are after, simply pop into your closest Woolworths store or check out their plant range online. Their orchids come with detailed care instructions to ensure your growing success.
