How to create a cosy home with velvet curtains

With velvet fabric and warm colours, it’s easy to create a snug feel during the winter months.

When temperatures drop outside, you can create a warm and inviting home with the help of wool, chenille and velvet fabric. Soft and sumptuous, velvet and chenille add depth and richness to your scheme, while wool brings an interesting textural element.

Whether it’s a simple velvet throw or a full-length chenille curtain, you’ll find these luxurious fabrics add instant warmth to your room.

Velvet fabric for style and warmth

When you’re looking to bring a snug feel to your home, chenille and velvet fabrics are the ideal choice. 

For curtains, choose a chenille, velvet or even crushed velvet fabric. Full-length velvet curtains will bring a truly luxurious feel and if you use use a thermal lining, or choose to interline your curtains, you can further insulate your room. It’ll help keep out any chilly draughts too!

Adding texture with wool

Adding texture with wool

Wool is a versatile fabric that can be used throughout the home, adding warmth and texture to any scheme.

Inherently fire-retardant, wool makes an excellent choice for curtains and upholstery. With a range of traditional and contemporary colours and designs available, you’re sure to find one that suits you. Or, for a simple room update, try draping woollen throws across an armchair or bed – it’ll look stylish and they’re great for snuggling up when winter sets in.

Add contrast with metallics

Bring variety to your scheme with metallics – a key trend that’s simple to achieve. Copper is ideal for adding warmth to a room and looks great coupled with deep navy velvet curtains.   

Smart lighting for a warm scheme

Using clever lighting techniques and accessories can help add warmth to your scheme.

Ceiling lights tend to be too harsh, but by combining the warm glow of table lamps with anglepoise lamps for task-lighting, you can transform your space. For a romantic ambience, soften any ceiling lights with a dimmer switch and try using flickering candles and twinkly fairylights.

Accessorising your room with woollen or velvet throws, rugs and textured cushions will add a welcoming and homely feel to your room. They’re easy to update when the seasons change, too.

Warm colours for a cosy home

Warm colours for a cosy home

Warm colours such as burnt orange, rich red and deep plum are an ideal choice for the winter months. Choose your favourite and use it as the main colour in your curtain fabric.

Greys are also bang on trend, but they don’t have to feel cold. Use grey as a backdrop to a warm accent colour, or couple a warm wall colour with grey velvet curtains, for a look that’s contemporary and luxurious.

Tartans and plaid fabrics are another great choice for winter schemes, but if plain fabrics are more to your taste, there are plenty of warm wool and velvet fabrics to choose from.
