Creating a stylish home this winter

PUBLISHED: 11:11 27 October 2015 | UPDATED: 09:32 29 October 2015


Re-imagining your home at this time of year can fulfil your nesting instincts, in preparation for the winter months ahead, even if you’re not planning to hibernate.

It’s a time to bring comfort to the fore and create a cosy glow in your home. For many of us this will mean bringing in burnt autumnal colours, softer lighting, accentuating the soft furnishings with throws or fabrics that will exude a sense of warmth.

However, it’s not just the decor, fabrics and textures that we may wish to reconsider but with the additional clothing, garments and footwear that autumn prescribes, it’s also the right time to think about how your rooms are furnished. Perhaps a few changes could reduce the clutter and ensure that the rooms in your home can fulfil the burgeoning demands placed upon them, whilst allowing your style to flourish.

Conquest have been hand crafting their bespoke fitted furniture in Hampshire for almost fifty years and their approach to furniture making ensures that you get the best possible storage, style and use for the space that you have. 

Lounge Style

A typical lounge will now host an array of audio-visual equipment but how can we avoid techno-clutter from spoiling the style and relaxing ambience of our room? Conquest’s fitted media centres display your television beautifully whilst concealing other technical equipment, cabling and DVD’s. Being bespoke, the media centre will fit your needs specifically in terms of size, shape and style leaving your lounge clutter free and beautiful.

Office Chic

Working patterns have changed substantially in recent years and many of us now need a dedicated office space in our home as well as discrete or concealed work stations in various locations throughout the home. Conquest’s handcrafted furniture ensures that your office is beautiful, highly functional and in perfect harmony with your home.

Kitchens to inspire

The kitchen is the heart of the home serving so many purposes from cooking, dining, entertaining, home-working and multi media engagement. With a bespoke fitted kitchen, each function can be effectively, discretely and cleverly integrated whilst ensuring the perfect build and fit.

Bedrooms Retreats

During the colder months your bedroom should become your sanctuary. A fitted wardrobe or dressing room can help you transition between autumn and winter wardrobes, with extra space for winter woolies and extra shoes and boots. Furniture designed around your specific needs keeps the clutter at bay and with options to conceal audiovisual equipment, your sanctuary will be preserved.
