As winter starts rolling in we are finding ourselves wrapped up on the couch more often and if you've now sparked the idea of updating your lounge and seating areas - don't fret.

You shouldn't have to go as far as purchasing a pricy new sofa when a refresh is as easy as throwing a few textured cushions on your existing couch or a cosy throw draped over the armrest.

Look to multiple textures and pops of colour in patterns that complement what you already have.

Here are a few ideas for an easy update:
