Winter is in full swing with frost on the ground and even occasional snowfall, so when we’re not dashing around showing property in Covent Garden and Soho (trying to keep warm!) we’re spending as much time as possible keeping cosy at TB_HQ. This gives us reason to contemplate a seasonal update of the decor, so we thought we’d ask our friends at The Furniture Union for their tips on the latest seasonal trends in interior design.
Key winter trends in the world of interior design
The interiors world is fascinated with seasonal magic, autumn and winter having brought a subtle change in the light, with skies embracing a deeper blue and sunshine taking an occasional peek at the tangerine and russet cascade of kaleidoscopic landscape. Autumn’s change from the summer cottons to winter wools creates a cosy homelike feeling that’ll last throughout the season.
Cool & Frosty
The frosty trend is forecast to become incredibly popular, bringing with it a fresh breeze of stone and chalk hues together with warm greys and blues. Choose from a range of wallpapers to create the perfect seasonal backdrop for your room, or create a picturesque masterpiece using a mix of plain and textured velvets.
If you prefer a slightly richer colour scheme for winter, midnight blue and indigo are the colours you should look out for.
Warm & Inviting
For warmth, try a toasty colour pallet of warm browns and textured beiges. Get cosy on your sofa with a bowl of warm soup, ready to appreciate the soft cable knit accessories in and around the room, such as the rug shown below. Alternatively you can add a chunky knit pouf to put your feet up on or some knitted cushions to create a warm and snuggly feeling. Our favourite tones are a mixture of dove greys, creams and hint of cinnamon spice beige.
Rich & Indulgent
An air of indulgence can be spotted this season and strokable textures such as faux mink fur are popular this winter. Metallic contrast against deep and dark backdrops is also very much on trend. Introduce gold and copper hues through furniture, ornaments or light fittings to replicate the seasonal special style.
