Interior design – A winter wonderland

Interior design tips on creating your perfect winter haven

Christmas will be a little different this year. Interior design help can transform your home into a place you would never want to leave. This year is all about staying in and Christmas will be no exemption due to the current pandemic. So now more than ever it’s vital to create your perfect home into a place you feel happy, safe and comfortable. But hurry – it’s getting cold!

There are multiple ways to achieve a winter wonderland interior design décor. From colours, to textures to accessories. You’ll never want to leave the home with these top tips. Let’s begin.

  1. Keeping warm

A winter wonderland interior design is more than adding fluffy blankets and pillows. You want to create a truly cosy atmosphere that you can really relax in. Whilst at the same time ensuring that the theme flows throughout your house to avoid it clashing and looking OTT.

Create a continuous theme in your home with matching a thick knit sofa throw with your bed throw. Another essential in keeping warm this winter is with a fire. A log burner is top of the list for a winter wonderland home but it does come at a price. So long as you can feel the heat on your toes whilst watching your favourite movie, that’s all that matters.

Lastly, the change in weather is a good excuse to stock up on new pyjamas and woolly socks. Because there’s nothing better than new comfies, right?

  1. Accessories

Spending more time at home this year can get a little dull. Which is why it’s so important to keep occupied with activities. A winter wonderland home wouldn’t be the same without games, puzzles, books and box sets to beat the boredom.

Extra special accessories such as gourmet fondue sets are ideal for this interior design style. As well as bringing that restaurant feel into your home.

  1. Dining décor

Although you may not be able to host your usual family or friends, it’s no reason to forget about your dining table décor. Keep up with festive traditions for yourself and your family and dress that table. Pick your interior design theme and treat yourself to a new dining set. Compliment this with a stunning centre piece like a wreath or an array of candles.

  1. Lighting

As we’ve discussed before, lighting is key to ambience. Fill your home with candles and make them scented for that extra touch. It’s also a good idea to swap out your bulbs with warm, dimmable options which create the ultimate relaxing atmosphere with a flick of a switch.

  1. Build your own bar

Bars may be on hold this year. Start thinking about how you can bring this key winter aspect inside. If you have space to build a DIY bar, go for it. And fill it with all your winter favourites like mulled wine, Bailey’s and Hot Toddy’s!

And there we have it, some key top tips on transforming your home into a beautiful, relaxing, cosy winter escape.
