Home looking a little bit dull? Looking to give it an overhaul inside for winter? It can be great fun decking out your home in the latest fashionable touches, and can elevate it from just somewhere you live, to somewhere you truly love to look at and stay in!
If you’re looking for some fresh new ideas on how to spruce up your interiors, then look no further – we’ve got everything covered right here.
Luxe, heavy fabrics
Because we’re heading into winter, it’s a good idea to make the place feel like it’s warmed up. You can add to this look by choosing interior touches in luxe, heavy fabrics. This might be in the form of your hanging curtains, some new cushion covers, a chair or sofa reupholstering job, or with other things like wall hangers and table runners.
Luxe, heavy fabrics can really help to add a depth and a warmth to a room that you may not otherwise get.
Colour in vibrant jewelled tones
Take a look around your home. What do you see? If it’s a sea of neutrals and woods then what you’re missing is some awesome pops of colour around the place. One of the biggest colour trends for winter in 2020 is vibrant, jewelled colours like brilliant emeralds, sapphires, and rubies. You can either use these sparingly, as small touches around a room, or go for broke, with something like a large deep green couch.
Patterns and prints
If your interiors are looking a little bit too modern and clinical, it may be because you’re just using block colours around the place. Mixing things up with patterns and prints makes a room infinitely more interesting to the eye.
If you’re feeling adventurous you can use your bold jewelled tones in combinations of cool prints and patterns like brocade or tropical print. If you’re not feeling the bright colours, opt for interesting geometric prints in neutrals.
Vintage or Italian furniture touches
If everyone just bought all their furniture and homewares at Ikea, we’d just have cookie cutter versions of everyone else’s homes! While you can get some of your bits and bobs at a cheap provider like them, there’s nothing like an original, vintage or Italian statement furniture piece. Check out furniture shops in your area, or have a browse through Italian furniture websites to see what’s around. You might even be able to find something cool from your parents’ house that they no longer want.
Texture, texture, texture
Much like different patterns can make a room more appealing, so too can numerous different textures. If your room seems decidedly 2 dimensional, then what it’s missing is more textures. Try adding items like a shag rug, a spiky centrepiece, a glass sculpture, or a wooden thatched room divider.
Mix things up with different textures throughout the room for maximum effect.
Metals aren’t just for jewellery! Metal touches such as bowls, rivets, lamps and more can be a great addition to any room. Simply pick your favourite coloured metal and add touches around the room to give it a bit of metallic sparkle.
You can even find fabrics with metallic colours woven through them which can help to set them apart – such as in curtains, furnishings, and cushion covers.
Bali style woven baskets
Missing your tropical island getaway? Then look no further than woven baskets, as they are on trend in a big way at the moment. Big or small, the choice is up to you. You can even get a range of different designs in different sizes to use around the place.
Not sure what to put in your woven baskets? Large baskets can store things like extra linens, hats, dress ups, children’s toys, and more. Smaller baskets can hold goods like keys, pens, etc., makeup, jewellery, and other small trinkets. You don’t have to travel to the tropics to purchase them either, they’re available here in stores in oz.
Adding some different on trend touches to your interior for winter can be a great way to freshen up your home’s style. Add some personal touches of your own to make your home uniquely you.
You’ll be surprised at just how different a new style can make you feel about different rooms in your home. Get inspired, get out there and start sourcing some new homewares, and get to work making your house feel like a brand new home, all in just a few short days.
