It is that time of the year when we all enjoy being indoors. Winters are all about indulging in cosy textures and warm colours while pampering yourself with seasonal treats. It is a good time to indulge in some seasonal maintenance to keep your home running smoothly. Here’s what you can do:
Infuse colour-therapy: Give your wall a winter makeover using colour schemes to embrace the deeper tones or a medley of raspberry, mulberry and blackcurrant shades for a chic and cozy scheme. Dark, elegant colours alongside warm lighting and reflective surfaces is the trend of the season. If you already have dark coloured furniture, you can warm up your wall with a palette of orange, green and yellows. You can also let your imagination go wild with whimsical wallpaper which will add more character to your otherwise boring wall.
Use appropriate lighting: The daylight fades away early during winters making us feel to hibernate. You need a lighting scheme to keep your home feeling warm, bright, and cheerful. Add table and floor lamps throughout your home, and swap out low-wattage bulbs with brighter, energy-efficient ones. Lights have the ability to change the feel of your surroundings.
Window drapes: Curtains can definitely manipulate the aura of your home. Window fashions will help you manage the natural light entering your home. Thick drapes and curtains dipped in dark rich hues will detract from the outer chill. You can make your own little world inside your home.
Add warmth to your floor: Well, you don’t want to start your mornings by stepping onto a cold floor. A fluffy area rug in the living room or bedroom will instantly add warmth and texture underfoot. Shop for a carpet that matches the paint, curtains, room layout, furniture etc. as it will give your home a stylish makeover.
Take inspiration from nature: Nature always provides you with the best décor ideas. A bouquet of flowers placed by the bedside or dining area instantly transforms the room be it a living or a bedroom. Wood also gives a wintery feel to the house. So you can add a lot of wooden sofas and stands that will make your home stand out.
