How to keep your home cosy this winter

Interior Design Master Bedroom

The winter season is ideal for house proud owners. You bundle up and layer your wardrobe from top to bottom in the latest trends while keeping warm and cosy. However, when you turn to look at your home, that comfort may disappear, leaving you with an uneasy feeling of discomfort…

If your home feels like an igloo in early winter, interior design styles can turn this all around with a fireplace installation. But apart from this, what else can we do?

Add texture to your bedroom:
A rustic basket to hold odds and ends, a living plant, even better when it’s a fragrant herb like the lavender grown here and floors covered up with a thick area rug if the room doesn’t have carpet all add up to a warm welcome. Switch out your smooth cotton duvet cover or comforter for a fur blanket and add extra warmth to your toes with a fuzzy throw blanket folded across the foot of the bed. Finish the scene with cushions covered in velvet or another thick fabric. The idea is to add a variety of heavy textures rather than the smooth surfaces that cool you down in the summer.

For the more daring, brighter reds may be a brave move that will give your room a real personality.

State Street Art Hotel

Redesign of the State Street Bank located in Dublin Docklands into a Boutique Art Hotel. This new building is a blend of a 4-star hotel with a contemporary art gallery and cultural centre.

The complex includes two Lobbies, two Bar-Restaurants, Guest Rooms, Cultural Centre, Art Galleries and Retail. Geometrical shapes and a contemporary colour palette have been used as part of the concept, serving as a link between the hotel and the galleries. The angular main void is the heart of the building and incorporates an amphitheatre designed to exhibit the art of the main gallery.

This uniquely designed hotel represents a new vision in hospitality, where art is treated as an integral part of daily life.
