7 winter interior design trends to keep your home cosy yet cool!
As the cold weather sets in and the rain starts to fall, it’s natural to spend more time relaxing and entertaining at home. So it’s no wonder that winter is the perfect time to optimise your interior design.
To help update your living spaces, here are the top 7 winter interior design trends!
For the past few seasons, shiny metallic materials have made their mark across the interior design landscape. Yet with this winter comes a more ‘moody’ metallic trend – forgo the vivid coppers for dirtier, darker metallics. Look for ornaments, candlesticks and mirror frames with a trendy matt finish.
2. Faux fur
Stylish and cruelty-free, faux fur is punctuating the cooler months in just about every fashion arena, from leopard-print shoes to faux-fur jackets. And it’s just as trendy in the home as well! Take it even further by embracing faux fur outside – lay down a faux fur rug or warm up those alfresco seats with a faux fur lining.
3. Cool colours
Adopting on-trend colours can be one of the easiest ways to create lavish interiors. Right now, emerald green, navy and smoky pale pink are some of the coolest colours going around. As a bonus, they look fantastic against metallic materials.
4. Go earthy
Highly manufactured materials are out – natural is in! There’s something about raw, organic materials that create an ultra-cool atmosphere. Keep an eye out for stunning crystals that work as independent ornaments or bookends. Marble is also a cool addition, as is natural furniture – think table tops and legs that maintain the organic curves of wood, rather than being ground down to form straight lines.
5. Bigger isn’t always better
While a big classic furniture piece will never go out of style, smaller pieces are nipping at the heels of these big-ticket items. Think about whether an over-sized couch and coffee table can be swapped for smaller, more boutique items, such as quaint armchairs and multiple petite tables that can adopt a range of uses. Take note that 1950’s-style furniture is very fashionable right now!
6. Knits are a hit
The increasing popularity of knitted materials is perfectly timed for the cold winter months, given their softness and warmth. Pillowcases and throws are two ways to bring the knitted look into your home. Seek out big chunky weaves that are comfortable and feminine.
7. Soften the lighting
For a long time, one big overhead light has been sought out because it quickly and efficiently lights up a whole room. Yet in the winter months, it can be more desirable to opt for softer lighting options, such as small lamps and ornamental light fixtures that can draw attention to designer pieces or just create cosy pockets to read a book in.
