Winter has set in and brought with it dark nights, colder temperatures and of course, new trends.
With less daylight hours, many of us turn to our interiors, hoping to inject a sense of light and warmth into our living spaces. As such, we have found the best ways to warm up your interiors for Winter 2017.
Winter interiors may evoke images of log fires, faux fur blankets, and hues of red. However, this Winter, the must-have colour palette has a decidedly Mediterranean feel. Opt for decadent mustard, deep rust-orange, bold teal shades, rich plums, and add metallic touches with gold, for warm accents that will also carry your interior through to Spring 2018.
Geometric shapes have been an essential interior trend for 2017, from geometric lamps and lighting to soft furnishings. Geometrical shapes have also been used to create stunning graphic feature walls, either with wallpaper or painting in colour blocking geometric shapes.
Colour blocking is also a fantastic way to add warmth to an interior design scheme, as you can choose different complementary colours and tones.
Winter is a time for indulgence and interiors should be no exception. Your home should be your retreat and the place you can really rewind and relax, and Winter is the perfect opportunity to inject a little luxury. For Winter 2017, the ultimate way to add luxury is through fabrics, such as velvets, faux furs and embroidery.
To keep fabrics on trend, opt for geometric prints in those rich Mediterranean shades – Swift Direct Blinds have a great selection of curtains for an instant stylish update.
2017 has been the year of living with less, from Japanese minimalism to the Danish lifestyle concept of Hygge. To embrace this trend for the Winter season, it’s all about the mid-century aesthetic. Whether updating the living room or bedroom, choose clean lines to adopt this style. For furniture, think simple and functional; for styling, opt for bold accessories and a two-tone colour palette.
Pastel shades have been popular interior shades in 2017, with pale greys, pinks and blues being the most sought-after. This trend is set to continue for the Winter season, but there are a few crucial updates to be made. To update for the season, boost your romantic design with chunky knit throws, add texture with faux fur and feathers, and inject a festive feel with splashes of rose gold.
