One of the nicest things about Winter is making your home look and feel cosy.

‘Hygge’ is a Danish concept that the team here at Style Studio came across recently and we wanted to share this on our blog for those looking to create the ultimate inviting and happy home.

Often translated as ‘cosy’, hygge is an entire approach to life that encourages us to create a relaxing and homely environment and indulge in whatever makes us feel content. It’s all about enjoying life and sharing moments with family; dimmed lights, cosy fires, candles and sumptuous, soft and snug materials. … view more.

It’s Winter Clean Time – tips for cleaning your blinds

Posted October 27, 2019 / Leave a response

When the dark nights draw in and we turn the clocks back to winter time, the first thing we all want to do when we get home is to cosy up and close the blinds and curtains.  But that’s when we notice all the dust and dirt, especially on blinds and curtains that may have escaped the Spring Clean and that’s collected on our window dressings during the summer months.

This makes cleaning blinds an essential part of your autumn clean!

To keep nasty winter germs, bacteria and bugs at bay – as well as other nasties that cannot be seen by the human eye – an autumn clean can be more essential to health and wellbeing than the more typical spring clean.… view more.

Tranquil Dawn Curtains & Blinds

Dulux has announced Tranquil Dawn as its colour of the year for 2020. Brilliant news, especially if you’re in search of some new window blinds or curtains with a hazy shade of grey-green.

Our interiors expert Lorna McAleer says:

“Tranquil Dawn is a colour that encourages mindfulness and wellbeing.  It’s a reminder of how something as simple as stepping outside to enjoy the early morning sunrise can help us reconnect with ourselves and the people around us.… view more.

Autumn is an exciting time of change. Take inspiration from the rich yellow, orange and red tones of nature’s autumnal colour palette – perfect for updating every room in the home with cosy and texture-rich décor schemes for the new season.

Double Dressing Windows – the perfect autumn home update

A practical, design-led solution for creating a cosy sanctuary for autumn is the new trend of double dressing windows by layering blinds and curtains.

The most popular combination is a Roman blind with co-ordinating or contrasting curtains. Both can be lined, adding two layers of heat retention versus just one – a stylish way of making homes cosier during the colder months.… view more.

Time to get cosy and add stylish sophistication to your interior. The stunning combination of Roman blinds & Curtains never fails to impress…

Not only does the trendy combination add a touch of class & privacy to any room, it can bring a feeling of warmth to your living room. As the frosty winter nights approach, simply close the curtains and immerse yourself in captive cosiness.
