In part two of this series, we will discuss some additional design tips to help you make your home perfect for the holidays or winter season.
A Coastal Feel
Some people associate the holidays and winter periods with travel to tropical locations, such as beach resorts. That doesn’t mean you have to book a plane ticket in order to enjoy that same atmosphere. Instead, try incorporating light beachy colors into your interior decorating scheme and adding some coastal-inspired elements such as seashells, sea starfish, or coral figurines.
You can also incorporate pieces of furniture and accents with ocean-inspired textures, such as wicker and wood furnishings. This gives your home a beachy feel without going overboard on the decorations.
A rustic style is also great for achieving a cozy, wintery look in your home’s interior design. Try using natural materials like stone, brick, and wood to create a warm and inviting atmosphere. You can also incorporate pieces of furniture with unique textures, such as leather couches or distressed tables.
Adding accents like natural wood baskets, antlers, and wooden-framed photos are easy touches that will help bring your rustic style to life. If you’re going for a more traditional look, try using jewel-toned colors like red, blue and green to create a festive atmosphere.
The Farmhouse Feel
Another classic winter design scheme is the farmhouse style. This look combines modern elements with rustic charm and a down-to-earth feel. Try incorporating some natural elements like burlap, jute, or twine into your interior decorating scheme.
You can also add furniture and accents that feature distressed wood finishes and metal details. For instance, try incorporating a farmhouse-style dining table, armoire, or sideboard into your decor. Adding industrial lighting fixtures and pieces of artwork featuring barns, horses, and other animals are great touches that will give your home the perfect wintery farmhouse feel.
Hopefully these tips have given you some inspiration for how to create a cozy, winter-themed interior design in your home. If you’d like help creating the perfect look for your space, contact Guild Hall Home Furnishings today and see how our expert interior designers can help!
