Get ready to cosy up for Winter!

Now’s the time to make sure you’ve got your winter warming décor at the ready.

Late autumn is the time to get our homes ready for winter! How often do you find that the sunny days of autumn all of a sudden (seemingly overnight!) become chilly, chilly winter days when hibernation feels a real option?!

We’ve done the rounds and have picked our favourites of the new season décor items for your homes to keep you and your family warm this winter.


Warm underfoot as well as soft and inviting to lie on to watch tv or a movie, rugs do the hard work in our homes. High pile textures are comfortable on your feet on even the chilliest of days!

Miss Amara are fast becoming Australia’s favourite online go to for rug shopping. It’s easy to see why! Such a great selection to suit every décor and piles and material to suit every lifestyle!

Miss Amara also offer free shipping … and a free return if it’s not as perfect for your room as you thought it would be! To help you make your decision before you purchase Miss Amara have a great app that allows you to see any of their rugs in your room … you simply upload a photo of your room and the app does the rest!

Sheets, bed linen, and throws

Flannelette sheets have lost their ‘shades nanna’s house’ and are now available in so many designs and colour-ways that you’ll wish they were practical for all year ‘round! Cotton Box have 47 (yes, 47!) designs and colours to choose from … you’re sure to find the perfect match for your winter bedroom.

No winter lounge or family room is complete without a stack of soft, fluffy throws for the family to snuggle into to watch tv or a movie. Some of our favourite throws are found at Adairs … and the St Albans Champagne Mohair Throw tops our list!

Entryway décor

A space to catch the drips from your umbrella, hang your coats, and keep the mud from your boots off the floors in an essential in any home at this time of year.

The Kubu Hamper (available in two sizes) from Provincial Home Living is perfect for storing throws and blankets beside the couch, or for storing the multitude of shoes and boots we accumulate near our front doors in the cooler months.

If you are looking for a statement piece for your entryway you can’t go past the Monokel Umbrella Stand by Klong available through Royal Design. Made from brass and stainless steel this umbrella stand is sure to add a classy touch to even the plainest of entryways. And, psst … they’re on sale at the moment!

Our own Vinyl Design coat hanger wall decals are a great way to decorate your entryway wall décor this winter! We’ve four designs in a huge range of colours for you to choose from … and we even include the hooks! Because all of our wall decals are removable and won’t mark your walls they’re a fantastic option for renters, or for people who love to change up their décor to suit the season!

Wooden bowls

There aren’t many materials that are as visually warming as timber. Satara have a range of absolutely beautiful wooden bowls – bowls, platters, vessels … stunning and sooooo warming!

New artwork

For your walls is a great way to warm up your home environ. Curious Grace always have a beautiful selection of wall art (whatever time of the year). Our eye was especially caught by this print ‘Splenda’ by Australian artist Scott Petrie – such lovely colours that create a warm, soft feeling for winter, yet in the warmer months could just as easily give a fresh, summer vibe. If you sign up to the Curious Grace newsletter they have a very nice welcome gift too!
