Sure, the mercury is dropping to chilling levels. Sure, your daily commute and evening stroll now require five separate layers just to pass as bearable. But you must admit, there’s something to be said for curling up in your cozy home with a warm cuppa as the rain cascades off the windows. Plus, now’s the time to start winter-fying your lovely abode. To get you into the spirit, we’ve listed a few of our favourite winter interior design trends.
Jazz up the Fireplace
The fireplace, a quintessential winter focal point, becomes even more central during these colder months. It’s not just about the warmth and comfort it provides, but also about the ambience. Upgrading your fireplace with new tiling, a fresh mantlepiece, or even just a few well-placed decorative items can transform it into a stunning statement piece. Imagine curling up with a book or a hot cuppa and listening to the gentle crackle of firewood as the hours fly by. Talk about pure winter bliss!
Bring the outside in
Biophilic design is an interior design trend that continues to thrive the whole year round, and winter is no different. Incorporating plants, wood elements, and natural textures into the home creates a connection with nature that’s particularly comforting in winter – a time when nature is less evident outside. Think bamboo baskets, wooden furniture, and leafy houseplants to breathe life into your space. This approach not only elevates the aesthetic of your home but is scientifically proven to improve your and your family’s well-being.
Winter is the season of layers and textures. Soft, plush fabrics like velvet and wool, thick throws, and fluffy cushions add depth and comfort to any room. Imagine curling up on the couch surrounded by all the soft, comfy things. Sounds good, right? Then there’s textured walls. Whether through wallpaper or decorative elements, they’re sure to add character and warmth. Picture a room where every touch adds a sense of comfort and luxury – that’s the magic of textured interiors in winter.
This winter, the colour palette takes a turn towards earthy and warm tones. Hues of mocha, cinnamon, oatmeal, and caramel are not only comforting but also bring a sense of calm and elegance. These colours work beautifully with natural materials and provide a perfect backdrop for bolder accents. They reflect the season’s natural hues and create a harmonious and soothing environment.
Last but not least, let’s talk about interior shutters. Not only do they add a timeless aesthetic to any room, but shutters also offer excellent insulation. Plus, by trapping in warm air, shutters can help keep your home cosy and will even reduce energy bills – a win-win for both style and sustainability. With various designs available, shutters can seamlessly integrate into your winter interior theme, enhancing both the look and comfort of your home.
You’re not limited to one or two colours either. Shutterly Fabulous has a range of winter colour options for you to choose from.
