If this is too radical, do it the easy way and just opt for some darker bedding!

5. Invest heavily in plush fabrics

Huge velvet sofas are a gorgeous way to embrace this approach.

6. Add some rustic items for flavour

Hand-thrown pottery and crockery really adds to the look.

7. Include warm metallic additions

Rose gold and copper are hugely fashionable right now and add a warm, rich hue to your winter home.

8. Embrace a little Hygge

The Scandinavian design movement (pronounced hue-gah) looks to encourage chunky blankets, warm colours and cosy living so is perfect for winter!

9. Add extra duvets and cushions to your bed
