As the temperature drops in many parts of the world, we begin to prepare for the Winter season and look forward to hosting family and friends at home for the holidays. Since you’ll be spending more time indoors you may be inspired to transform your space into a welcoming and cozy haven.
Adding natural elements from the outdoors is a great way to embrace the season. Nature is one of the greatest inspirations for holiday decorating. Go for a walk and fill a basket with pine cones, spruce and evergreen sprigs to give your home a nature inspired look.
You might want to spend more time curled up with your favorite book or a classic movie as the cold weather sets in. We suggest designing a dedicated nook to enjoy your most cherished activities. You will especially look forward to using this personal space in the winter months ahead.
Faux fur, velvet and wool are great fabrics for this season, especially in lighter, more neutral colors. Knitted accessories are getting bolder, with huge chunky cable-knits. Whether draped over an armchair, placed on your bed, or under your feet, thicker, fuller fabrics will add warmth and elegance to your space.
Be extra generous with pillows and blankets in the colder months. Keep throws and cozy knits easily accessible in different sized baskets, a must have essential for winter.
You can achieve a warmer feel by simply swapping out a few items of your home decor. We recommend softer, warmer lighting which can be achieved with floor lamps and table lamps.
Welcome Winter with a Touch of Gold
When it comes to preparing your home for winter, color choices definitely play a major role. Gold is a classic metallic whether used in your lighting, accessories or serving ware.
Different shades of white, reminiscent of the snow, can be brought into your home in the form of rugs, fabrics and pillows. Incorporating a rich shade like cranberry can bring an intense look to the interior, when paired with white elements.
If you prefer a deeper colour scheme for winter, try midnight blue, indigo and ink colours. These darker shades can be brought in through furniture, throws and accessories to make a statement in any space.
Dark Shades of Green
Dark green shades reflect the true outdoors and pay homage to the hearty evergreen trees that stay will us all winter long. This will become the new must-have dark interior colour. Used in a feature piece such as an armchair or sofa, this colour adds depth and brings nature inside. And the velvet fabric certainly adds glamour to the space!
There are a lot of things you can do to make your home feel more cozy and comfortable. We hope you’ve been inspired to make your space winter ready!
