1. Add Some Heavy Metals:
An all-white or muted grey interior may tick all the boxes but works well too as a ‘blank canvas’. Why not add a wintry twist with a metallic accent; unpolished copper or bronze are on trend. (No more fake rose-gold!).

2. Consider Textures:
A mixture of textures adds visual interest and feels deeply luxurious. This season is all about velvet, so a chunky throw and cushions will feel super-cosy. Pair with rustic, wicker accessories and knit fabrics for maximum impact.

3. Keep It Fresh:
Try to not get too fixed with your styling – I’ve always got tons of mood boards and sources of inspiration on the go. Look for little touches and ideas that just lift a room, or add unexpected visual interest. I recently discovered the At Home Box Company, founded by Anthea Turner and Sarah Jones. Every month I will get a series of four treats for me and the house, they'll keep me inspired all of the time which I LOVE!

4. Live for Light:
Autumn and winter are the perfect time to experiment with mood lighting. At the moment, my favourite way is to group candles together on tables and hearths. I try to use different heights and widths but keep to a similar colour scheme for ultimate effect. Look for complementary wintry scents too to add to your ambience.

5. Layer Your Theme:
Using one theme throughout your home such as in the kitchen through to the dining room and living area is a great way to tie your interior together. The layering technique can create a seamless feel, so add accessories with a similar feel to each room; vases especially work really well.

6. Have a Winter Home Check:
I know it’s almost boring, but a mid-winter flood will destroy any ‘Hygge’ fantasy instantly, so make time to get pipes lagged, fires professionally cleaned, boilers serviced and drains cleared.
