As the nights grow longer, the realization hits that we are only a few weeks away from winter. Create the perfect retreat from the cold with a living room designed and curated around themes of warmth and luxury. Opulence is on trend this year, with attention given to transforming spaces into areas where coziness is king.
It may seem intimidating at first but – if you take a step back and assess your immediate design needs, it will be easier. Follow these five simple style tips, and you’ll be well on your way to enjoying the upcoming white winter.
1. Fireplace Obsessions
If your living room has a fireplace, make the most of the icy season ahead by using it to anchor your furniture and make it the focal point of the space. A Bioethanol fireplace is a surefire (excuse the pun) way to bring coziness and warmth to a small or large space.
Evoke an inviting tone to the room by using a roaring fire to connect with the emotional elements of winter. Think hot chocolate, toasted marshmallows, and huge blankets.
There is something so magical about the way candles can transform a space. By turning down the lights and creating ambient lighting, you can watch the flames flicker and create gorgeous shadows that dance across your recently clad living room walls.
This is a useful tip if you don’t have a fireplace as in the tip above, candles can go a long way to creating the same warm vibe.
3. Comfortable Sofas
Winter is all about staying in and binge-watching your favorite show as the snow falls gently outside. You can have the best-looking living room in town, but without a comfortable sofa, it will mean nothing.
Browse a gorgeous selection of in-stock sofas and find the one that speaks to your design preference. Celebrate texture and find a color that works for your room just as well as it works for the season. Look for something you can relax and snuggle up on because that is what winter living is best for. In addition, you can also buy sectional sofa covers that help to keep the sofas clean in a more convenient way.
4. Play With Patterns
If you have a deep-seated (again with these on-point puns!) love for all things cozy interior design, this season should be easy to master. If you’re a little fresh at this – don’t worry.
Play with designs, patterns, and textures until you find the perfect balance for your space. By experimenting with different patterns, you can quickly transform your winter space into a room fit for a king or queen.
5. Get Festive
Adorn your living room with exquisite greenery for a natural take on festive décor options. The classic wreathes, as beautiful as they are, can easily be upgraded and placed inside instead of out in the cold.
Look into wreathe designs that embrace sustainable materials like seeds, moss, leaves, pinecones, and twigs – anything nature-inspired will look incredible. There are multiple tutorials online that will show you exactly how it’s done.
Many people don’t look forward to the coldest months of the year, but with the right interior décor and a positive attitude, winter can be a wonderful time.
