Winter Vibes – It’s Time to Get Cosy

We have once again entered the season of fuzzy socks, hot chocolate, sweaters, and huddling under blankets. Chances are, we will be spending way more time indoors than we usually do.

Now is the perfect time to bring the outside in with furniture pieces made from timber and a nod to a more earthy colour palette. There are plenty of warm colours to help you achieve the perfect space to snuggle up. Think rusts, warm greens, charcoal and browns and you will be right on trend.

If you are lucky enough to have a fireplace, let it make a statement by adding a screen that has personality or you could forgo the wood and add an elaborate candelabra. If you don’t have an indoor fireplace, then why not create one outside with a firepit. Basic to the most elaborate, all will have you enjoying your winter nights, especially if there are marshmallows involved.

Our home offices also take centre stage in winter because it is so very easy to stay snuggled up under the covers rather than jump out of bed and hit the office. One solution to have you feeling more motivated to get out from under the doona, is to lean towards comfort in your office. Using crisp and clean lines in your office, make it clutter-free by adding a shelf for organising stationery and files and hang up a gorgeous painting that inspires creativity. Above all, make sure you find a desk lamp that you love!

Bedrooms Take Centre Stage

It’s only natural that we spend more time in our bedrooms in winter and we therefore need to make sure it’s our own personal little sanctuary. A place to escape the winter chills and what better way than a four-poster bed with matching bedside tables, finished off with beautiful luxe linen. Featured product available at Harvey Norman

Vintage style has always been iconic for being chic and cosy, expressive, and unique. It also never truly goes out of fashion and vintage furniture seems to be the “it” deal for winter this year. Vintage means warm colours and designs and this throwback aesthetic can certainly add to your room’s cosiness.  Featured ‘In The Sac Avenue Linen Throw Vintage’ available from James Lane

Winter gives us so many options when it comes to interior design.

Winter interior design trends are attractive and plentiful, giving you a wide variety of options to play with and yet another one of those is to go the minimal interior design look using earthy tones. Warm natural textiles paired with rattan and wood will give your room a peaceful and calming feel.

An idea to add wood is to swap out a painting for a piece of reclaimed wood art or introduce a rustic wood table that has been made from a natural tree stump.

Lighting is also a critical factor in adding warmth to your home during winter and lighting comes in all different shapes and sizes. When choosing, think about the size of the area you are lighting and don’t be afraid to make a statement with something bold. And don’t forget the humble candle that will add a bit of romance to the room and give you a very calming warm glow.

Above all, be sure to introduce deeper shades of green throughout your home as this colour is definitely the top colour trend for 2021 and will have you at one with mother nature.
