Hibernate at Home
Jennifer Morgan,-Interiors Editor

SAY HELLO TO HIBERNATION SEASON, WHERE STAYING IN AND GETTING COSY IS THE NEW GOING OUT

This winter sees a focus on slow living. Celebrate warm neutrals – buttery beige, soft plaster, rich cream and touches of plum – and use where white and grey once dominated. This softer, Scandi-inspired palette works brilliantly during the colder months, providing opportunity to indulge with blankets, cushions and rugs made for snuggling.

In the bedroom, layer the bed with natural linen, chunky knits and alpaca. Super-soft towels and wooden accents create an at-home spa feel in the bathroom. For the living room, pile on textured accessories to create a cosy, relaxed setting; while for dining, ceramics in soft colours with a hand-thrown look are perfect for hearty, comforting meals.

This is the season to slow down, unwind and enjoy being at home. ‘It’s time to hibernate, cosy down and get ready for winter,’ says Fionnuala Johnston, Partner & Senior Designer, Home Design Studio.
