Winter interior is all about texture and layering. Changing your summer and spring throw pillow and blankets is a great way to prepare your home for the colder winter months. Switching your lighter linen or blankets and pillows for more luxurious options like cashmere, wool blends or quilts that lend themselves to keeping you warm as the temperature drops outside. A sheepskin or reindeer hide is a great way to add texture to any room and it reflects versatility – you can throw it over a chair or a bed. This trend works well in both the bedroom and living room.
Introducing natural elements within your space is also a great way to create a sense of calm and comfort this winter. Don’t be afraid to mix up materials either, natural timbers or wooden furniture not only looks great but is timeless and perfectly compliments any interior style. Another way to warm up a room, especially if you have tiled or wooden flooring is to add a statement rug. It’s important to think about the size of rug that will work within your room – over sized rugs that extend beneath both the sofa and coffee table work well in the living room, whilst a rug that tucks half under the end of your bed looks cozy in the bedroom.
With the sun setting a lot earlier this time of year its specially important to create ambient lighting to set the mood in the evening , this can be done using lamps or candles. The atmosphere of a room is also affected by the scents you use.
Lastly, mix and match your accessories. Using trays or books to elevate and display various ornaments on a console table, creates layer and texture through mixing hard and soft material like natural stones or marbles which add to the feeling of effortless winter style.
