Revive any dull area with this owl (R69) and urn (R99) vase combination from Mr Price Home.

Regardless of your personal taste in décor, picking out weather appropriate accessories is the key to successful winter decorating.

Soft complementary furnishings such as plush, chunky throws and accent pieces with tassels is the simplest and most inexpensive way of ‘switching gears.’

So why not tie your seasonal décor together with a few of these cosy items...

Homey vases

Vases in rich colours can revive just about any dull space. Spice up a ‘dry’ entryway with an attractive configuration of three vases on a console table or pair them up on a ledge in the kitchen.

This bold and fun bathroom mat from Woolworths is a practical must-have, especially for those cold winter mornings when your toes could use the added warmth.

If you’re looking for a more rustic look, use your vase arrangement on or against a raw wooden background and complement this with candlelight.

Bath mat luxury

Add a decorative element by updating an okay bathroom with a colourful bath mat with quirky patterns.

This bold and fun bathroom extra is a practical must-have, especially for those cold winter mornings when your toes could use the added warmth.

Cosy cushions

Instantly change the look and feel of a room by experimenting with different cushion options. Pair velvet with faux fur or mix it up with round scatter cushions.

Pair silhouette cushions (R99) with ombra silver or monogram satin gold cushions (R199) from @home for a cosy living area. Picture courtesy of @home.

For visual effect, play around with the number of cushions you place on your sofa or be a little more creative by arranging them on the floor, underneath a side table, in a decorative basket or on a bookshelf. 

Comfortable throws

Weaving throws into your décor creates a comforting and inviting atmosphere – whether you drape one over the arm of a chair or let it casually cascade down the back of a sofa.

Throws give living and sleeping areas a personal touch and all the drama you need to stir up some visual interest. They’re also an effective way of introducing texture, pattern and emphasising a colour scheme.

Plush duvet sets

Indulge your bedroom with a beautiful, single print duvet set. Opt for a toned down colour option but keep it looking chic by working in one or two coloured pillows and a lovely throw.

The single print pattern keeps your bedroom looking uncluttered and works beautifully for both masculine and feminine bedroom décor. – Katlego Sekano
