How to Transform your lounge with the tartan and twee trend


There are those who love the glamour and razzmatazz of Christmas. Lots of crystals, champagne flowing and rooms filled with glitter and sparkle. Others prefer a more down to earth approach. Traditional decorations, wooden finishes, warm fires and mugs of hot chocolate. Think of a quaint cottage with a roaring fire, the smell of Christmas dinner cooking away in the kitchen. During the festive season you need to keep your lounge a place for peace and serenity. The dining room and kitchen will be filled with the hustle and bustle of cooking and eating. So make sure you have one corner of the home that offers the chance for some quiet time. Take a look at how to transform your lounge with the latest festive trend of Tartan and Twee.

Key lighting and accessories for the Tartan and Twee Trend:


  •   Quirky Wall Lights
  •   Tartan Throws and Cute Cushions
  •   Quaint Table Lamps
  •   The perfect sofa


Vintage & antique styles are a must for the tartan and twee trend. This look is all about unusual & quaint designs that offer nostalgic feelings. Exposed bulb wall lights will add that vintage touch/ Whilst bronze, copper & brass finishes will give your home a warm ambience, perfect for this time of year. Wall Lights are a great way of adding that extra source of light. Place in alcoves and dark corners to make your room appear bigger. Situate over artwork and photographs as a wall feature. Team your wall lights with complimenting table lamps to add depth and contrast to your room.

Texture plays a key role in this trend. Layering lots of scatter cushions and soft throws over your sofa and armchairs will create a cosy and tranquil corner. For the festive season choose warm reds and knitted designs. Tartan and checked fabrics will add a homely feel or go for faux fur designs for a woodland vibe. Reindeer motifs will add a fun element to this look and who doesn’t need a bit of fun at Christmas time? Take a look out our current throw and cushion range here. We're currently stocking some gorgeous tartan throws and festive cushions.

A great stocking filler to yourself. Choose quaint Table lamps that will show off your personality. Lanterns are bang on trend at the moment and look great pretty much anywhere. Sit at the bottom of your fire place surrounded by flickering candles. Prop on the side table with some of your favourite books and a photo frame. The definition of twee is described as excessively or affectedly quaint, pretty, or sentimental. You should think about this description when choosing your lighting. Think about things that make you happy and accessories that will bring a smile to you and your guests faces when they visit. Novelty lighting such as our quaint porcelain House light and our beautiful bird topped bell jar lamp are sure to bring that festive joy that is really needed this time of year.

The heart of the lounge is most definitely its namesake, the place we want to lounge on after a hard day at work. The spot that we curl up on with a good book when we’ve just come in from walking the dog. Make sure you choose a super comfy armchair or sofa to relax and unwind on during these dark winter evenings. Be daring and go for a patterned fabric such as tartan. Make sure it’s wide enough to curl your legs up on, scatter some cushions for added cosiness, sit back with a hot mulled wine and enjoy those few days off.
