A new season is just around the corner and with it the opportunity to beautify your home. Wondering how to beat the cold this winter? We asked our team of professional Decorilla interior designers for expert advice and here is the roundup of the 9 hottest interior design trends for the winter season!
1. Cozy textiles
Soft accessories with special comfort such as flannel sheets, cashmere or wool throws and cotton quilts are the winter interior design trend that warms everywhere. Folded over the back of the sofa, thrown onto a bed or rolled into a large basket, options also provide the visual feeling of warmth and comfort that appeals to the senses. Additionally, knitted accessories are in the spotlight this winter, with knitted poufs and huge, chunky cable knits replacing the subtle woven patterns. Textiles can also take other forms. Faux fur stools, for example, are ideal as additional seating, while sheepskin rugs keep your feet warm on winter days.
2. Warm wooden elements
Not only are wood interiors one of the 2023 interior design trends, but in cold weather, a room with wood finishes or accents adds a warming effect while acting as a natural insulator. Floor coverings and wooden panels have a stronger effect. But there are also simpler wooden furnishing trends for winter! For example, swap out a painting for a piece of art made from reclaimed wood, or set up a rustic wooden side table like a natural tree stump to place warm drinks on. Additionally, a simple basket of cut firewood logs gives the feeling of being in a great rustic cabin. Organic and wonderful!
3. Eye-catching fireplaces
One of the best meeting places at home in winter is certainly the fireplace. Beautiful focal points for kinetic lighting that add a special atmosphere to a room. Let your fireplace make a statement with interesting screens that showcase pattern and style. A popular alternative to firewood logs is to decorate the interior of your fireplace with a candelabra that raises the columns to different heights. Your fireplace is not limited to indoors. Enjoy the fresh winter air with blankets and hot cocoa or mulled wine by a fire pit in the backyard. It’s a great way to enjoy cozy winter nights and maybe make some s’mores while you’re at it!
4. Stylish candles
You don’t have to sit in the dark! With days getting shorter, maximizing room lighting options is a must. Candles are popular for their calming light and festive effect. Use subtle string lights to wrap around houseplants or place them in a vase to create an interesting glow. Candle holders and votives are always a great accent, but this winter design trend is all about the candle holders themselves. Add color and even texture with these beautiful light sources.
5. Metallic and mirrored surfaces
Another way to add sparkle to your home is to add accents with metallic finishes and mirrored details. Not only do different surfaces provide design interest and contrast, but their lighting quality also contributes to light reflection.
