Accessory of the week: Warmth

September 30th, 2013 by Harry

Don’t tell anyone, but I have a feeling that winter’s on its way.

Although I’d love to live in utter denial of this fact, now would be a good time to think about effective ways of warming your home over the colder months.

So our accessory of the week is… warmth. That means fires, wood-burning stoves and other warmy things.

Wood Burning Stove


This traditional wood-burner adorns the home of architect Ekaterina Voronov, and warms up her Dublin home.

The design is very economical, and is actually warmer than a traditional fireplace as you don’t get drafts coming through the open chimney. It’s a great blend of modern and traditional, and will create a gorgeous, warming atmosphere to come home to.

Log Fire


It may not be the safest option, but boy does an open fire welcome you home with open arms. This is a relatively inexpensive way of heating your home, especially if all you need to do is restore your current fireplace. You’ll save a ton on energy bills over winter and your house will have that lovely log-burning smell.

Aga for Winter


An Aga isn’t the cheapest thing in the world, but it is a wonderfully economical way of heating your home, and is ultra-stylish. Some of the many advantages of an Aga:

  • No more pre-heating the oven. It is cheaper to keep it on at all times rather than turn it off and on again, so your cakes will be baked in no time.
  • Because it’s kept on all the time, it also does a grand job of heating your kitchen and with very little amount of energy.
  • You’ll be saving a lot of money on your energy bills – Aga’s are highly economical.

Interested in getting yourself an Aga? Aga Living have loads to choose from!

Masonry Heater


A masonry heater isn’t the most conventional way of heating a home but who wants to be conventional? Masonry heaters are an extremely efficient way of heating a home, and are very popular in Eastern Europe. They’re super safe, let off hardly any smoke and would also be a great focal point in a living room or kitchen.

Interested in finding out more or purchasing one? Cornish Masonry Stoves specialise in making them!

And don’t forget – all of The Loom and Last’s curtains and blinds can be thermal lined to help keep the heat in over winter!
