Day light saving already? Yes, you heard it right, winter is coming!
You know winter is creeping up on you when your nights begin at 5.30pm with a mug of hot-chocolate, good movie and an oversized hoodie. However, we think this should all be done in a cosy and fitting environment. It’s time to start looking out for the winter interior trends which can change the ambience of your whole interior.
What better way to make a bold entrance this season with dark, cosy interiors and wisps of smoky colours?
Shades of Grey
Looking to warm up your interior for the winter season? Using a range of grey tones is the upcoming winter trend for 2018. This neutral colour is such a versatile one, making such a chic statement within the home. The colour grey is one that is so adaptable, taking a space to a whole new world being the perfect grounding contrast to a range of vibrant colours. Pairing up dark, medium and light tones through different areas of the space such as furniture, accessories, wall paint and flooring will help you achieve the look. This colour scheme allows you to make a statement with a darker shade or hide away with gentle tones.
Cosy & comfortable
Accessories such as comfortable flannel sheets and cosy wool throws make coming home from a cold day much more desirable. Not only do these make a statement, they also add to the comfort of your everyday environment. Blankets thrown over the couch or even folded over a basket bring a sense of warmth and relaxation to the setting. Knitted poufs and cable knitted foot rests are taking over this winter. These provide a different textile, whilst keeping a warm tone.
Wood finishes = warm environment
Wood finishes are always a great way to bring a warm feel to a space giving off a variety of appearances. Looking for ways to incorporate this trend to your home? Flooring and wood panels are an easy way to make a statement! Or if you want to go for something subtler, a wooden art piece, natural wooden tree accessories or a side table will do the trick.
Light it up
With the sky getting dark much quicker and shortened days, adding candle light to your space can create a calming element. Save on electricity bills this winter by using your favourite winter scented candle on top of a statement candle holder. Even adding elements such as string lights to your vases or plants can add a spark to the atmosphere. Your house will start to look and smell like heaven with these key trends.
If you are after a richer colour scheme to add to your space, keep an eye out for deep shades of blue and indigo. These colours are trending for Winter 2018, giving a sophisticated and chic look to your interior within seconds. Incorporating blue toned accessories, wall art or even a faux fur rug can turn your space around making it look refined and stylish.
Incorporating accents of metallic accessories, details or even surfaces will help bring life to your space this winter. This adds contrast and interest to the setting as well as an extra illuminating quality. Even though it’s winter, no one wants to be surrounded by a dull environment. Adding these metal tones will certainly do the job!
