Winter is already here. Many consider the beginning of a new season a chance to refresh their home decors with a couple of latest trends of the season. In winters especially, people like to turn their home quite cozy and comfortable to stay within, because the freezing weather is sort of anti-going-out. So, most of us tend to stay within the four walls of our homes.
To defeat the cold, we turn our homes to look and feel warm. Probably it is a reason why a massive decor trend for winter is about inviting natural elements and materials like wood and green shades from outside into home interiors. In this article, Pouted online magazine presents you 10 of the latest decor trend forecasts for winter.
1 Earthy tones
Earthy colors have been quite trendy this season, whether in fashion or home decor. Browns and beiges come at the top of the earthy color palette. Also, earthy refers to natural colors such as sky blue, grey, and orange. It is an ideal choice for winter decor, for earthy tones convey warm, relaxing, natural vibes. For example, in a palette of whites, greys, and beiges or caramel, the beige will blend smoothly with white and grey, adding some warmth to the other two winter colors.
2 Accents of warm spices
Colors of spices such as yellow turmeric, red paprika, brown cinnamon could be a vibrant addition to your home decor. Such color accents complement neutral rooms perfectly. They won’t only turn your room trendy for winter, but they will convey warm vibes too. And let’s face it, a warm sense is something we all seek in winters. Plus, adding spice colored decoration pieces is an ideal idea for the coming holidays. And if you are in the mood of bigger changes, altering wall colors into light cinnamon will be perfect.
3 Abstract decoration
The abstract decor trend is fun, free, and expressive of the personality of the homeowner. It employs bold geometrics, clean lines, and playful colors to create an abstract look similar to that of an abstract expressionist artwork. To update your home with this trend, you could simply introduce abstract artworks, bold-shaped pieces of furniture and decoration, geometric lighting pieces, and geometric-patterned cushion. The abstract accent could also be the rug/s.
4 Winter whiteness and fall leaves
Adding decoration pieces that include fall leaves to white rooms is a fantastic decor trend for Winter and the coming New Year celebration. It is a stellar blend of the primary themes of both fall and winter. The base here is a white painted and furnished room. You do not have to stick to bright white; adding off-white pieces of furniture would create chic chromatic gradation and turn your decor dimensional. Then, comes the decoration part. Spread rustic vases and plant pots and fill them with different fall leaves. You can employ a palette that includes neutral and golden yellows, burnt and bright oranges, and reds. For statement finish, top it all with a dark piece. The example presented by the Italian Bark decor website employed a black fireplace. Well, it seems amazing, yet we are more into deep purples and burgundies.
5 Cushions, knits and faux fur
What can be better in the cold days of winter than lying on your comfy couch with a throw on you and surrounded with cushions and knits? So, add multiple cushions of different colors and textures along with faux fur and knitted throws. This could also be the decoration of a hanging chair corner.
6 Blue… The color of the year
Panton Color Institute chose a deep blue shade to be the color. Given that blue is an ideal winter color, the color is expected to boom in the coming holidays and year. Blue is a rich, comforting color, and, for all these reasons, applying it to your interior decor seems a great choice. Among the colors you can combine it with is pink, for it has been quite trendy this fall/winter season, not only in the interior design world but in that of fashion as well.
7 Japanese style
Japanese decor style and motifs have grown quite popular in the past few years. Well, winter is no exception. Among the most employed Japanese interior elements are bird motifs and prints, oriental patterns, silk textures, and structured furniture. Combining the irresistible Japanese minimalist style with rustic Scandinavian style is a sub-trend spotted by Ideal Home, and it is expected to go big.
8 Bare bricks
Accent bricked walls is a retro decor trend that has been witnessing a comeback in this fall/winter season. And the fact that terracotta shades have been big this season has turned terracotta bricks more and more popular. If you are executing a minimalist interior design, an accent wall of exposed bricks is more than a suitable addition to your room. Another good idea is to contrast the terracotta bricks with white walls. Then, include in the furniture and textile color palette off-white, beige, light caramel, or cinnamon, and maybe neutrals like pink and black.
9 Caramel and dark wood
The year is expected to witness wide employment of wood in interior design. The coming year, unlike the past few ones, is more about darker shades of wood. Wood is employed in home ceilings and columns, floors, furniture, decoration pieces and finishes, and doors and windows. And because the wood trend is a part of a tendency towards inviting natural materials into homes, jute, wicker, and ratan are also incorporated into furniture and decor accessories. Besides, dividing the home environments with natural materials, including wood, has been a notable trend.
10 Leather accents
Another material expected to go big in winter is leather. It has been quite trendy in the fashion scene. So, no wonder to see it dominating as an interior design trend too. The material is quite suitable for the cold seasons and even spring, but not summer, especially if the leather piece/s you have are couches or chairs. It would indeed be challenging to relax on them for a long time.
Homes are our warm havens on the long, cold days of winter. So, do yourself a favor and turn your place cozy and warm. We hope that these home decor ideas and trends, carefully selected for you by Pouted decor trends magazine, have inspired you to apply one or two of them.
