Sporteluxe’s interior design expert Mia Lake knows a thing or two about creating an elegant home. Here she shows she’s savvy with ways to heat it the eco-friendly way too. Here are three easy and incredibly elegant ways to add warmth to your favourite spaces…
1. A portable fireplace
To me, the height of winter is being cosy in front of a fireplace. Now it’s possible to do this in your own home the clean and easy way with an EcoSmart fire place. Their flames are fuelled by clean-burning bioethanol, a renewable liquid fuel produced from agricultural by-products. There is no smoke, no mess or builder required, plus they’re large enough for a family or group of friendly to huddle around too. I love the Light House Series; a very stylish, sustainable and luxe addition to any home.

2. Cookware that’s like artwork
Food is a total experience, from the smells and taste, to what it looks like and the process of creating then presenting. A Le Creuset crock pot is an absolute investment piece and luxe addition to any kitchen for the winter months. Plus, the range of colours are delightful, so they look great on a bookshelf amongst the cookbooks.
We love → Le Creuset Crock Pot, from $299
3. Classic sheep skin throw
The penultimate wintery accent is a sheep skin throw. Drape one over a dining or armchair, use as a rug on the floor or sit one on the end of your bed. The natural fibres of wool will keep you warm in the winter and add both a visual and physical comfort to your favourite spaces.
