Winter is all about surplus pillows, luscious green plants and cheesy rugs underneath. Unquenchable is the thirst for comfort and it will be fruitless to curse yourself for being in the grip of such desire.
Here are some ideas to transform the no-winter outlook into a winter-perfect destination.
- Monochromatic look
A monochromatic look in the winter will transform the interior into a welcome destination. A time when you need utmost comfort and a thrilling vibe, the winter goes perfectly with a monochromatic design of your living room. You can master the technique of this by just giving it a small amount of time and research. In a monochromatic view there is less complication of color and the patterns of fabrics, walls, furniture seem like complimenting each other. So before buying matching fabrics, prepare the background with single fainted shades, so that they can take on the accessories with ease. A great example is a black and white theme. Pillows, bedding and a few other fabrics must be of black and white color and the less entangled the arrangement will be, the overall outlook will be that much delightful. Canopies of bed and rugs should supplement the theme and you have to buy them after you get all other things done.
As important as the first touch is, so is the work is done on top of it. Layering tends to increase the density of sensitivity and level of comfort for the users due to its capability to add muscle to the skeleton. Try two or three layers of décor to make the living room a bit more cozy. After the walls are painted and the window frames set, arrange the furniture in a way it will allow maximum usage of accessories. Rugs, pillows and curtains are the best warming products for the indoors. Seating area must have two layered rug cover; put two rugs on the coffee table and keep the throw-away pillows on the sofa in excess. Use curtains with heights and put one or two cushioned tool or chair as extra nearby the window or the sofa. You can also make it feel warm and cozy with a heater, check out this tent heater review for a selection of good choices.
- Overhead lighting
What do you need the most in winter? The answer is ‘warmth’. And the lighting system is a great help in this. Lighting arrangement in general and the overhead lighting in particular casts a magic spell on the décor because it just feels so amazing when combined with a luxurious winter décor set-up throughout the house. Choose the light bulbs in the overhead lighting fixtures carefully as they are like the prisms through which you will be seeing the whole room. Buy a fixture that suits the other design set-up of the space. The color and theme of the room will help you select the best lights to add some spice to the mood. Hanging light fixtures with glass embellishments often go with multiple décor themes. Sometimes the candle-holder design is also followed while considering this.
- Touch of leather
This is the classic way of winter décor. The leather is historically considered the crown jewel of luxury and comfort and all of these becomes very necessary when you are preparing for the winter. In leather too, you have many options according to the color of leather and the place where you want it to be. If you want, you can make a leather item the centerpiece of your room too. A big large armchair will do just fine for the centrepiece whereas a set of leather covered elegant sofa can fix the mood for a cozy conversation in a winter evening. It is often seen that people try to put in a lot of wooden articles just to help the leather object create a better look. That will be very stuffy and uncomfortable gradually. So keep the furniture to the minimum if you have a heavy centre of attraction already. The fun thing about leather furniture is that the fabrics of light colour and with minimum decoration, can rev up the already elegant atmosphere.
It seems unlikely to fit in some houseplants in a winter décor. But, if you have tried then you will know its taste. Houseplants can be super-additive with a huge range of theme and décor articles. Even the above-described leather outlook bodes well when surrounded by a few symbols of nature. Silk flower centerpieces can hail the beauty when placed alongside the major object inside the room such as the sofa or the book shelf. Artificial plants like artificial boxwood topiary or palm fronds can be kept in places like in the corner of the living room, besides the entrance door or nearby the window. Commercially speaking there are numerous options in affordable costs in this décor idea. Wholesale artificial flower arrangements are available if you want to decorate multiple places inside your house.
- The reading lamp and the warmth of the pictures
Apart from the throw pillows and fluffy blankets, there are more elements to summon the elusive warmth in winter. A plethora of warm-hued pictures will sprinkle a gentle warmth on the chilling vibe. Best preferred arts and photos collection can be of nature because it symbolizes the prevalence of natural force over any other creation. A magnificent force to be reckoned with is the winter and your representation must be that shows hope in freezing cold. You can also create a gallery on the overboard space or may be on the front wall. Don’t forget to use some mood lighting to illuminate them. Coming onto lights, you will see that if you add another piece of comfort called the reading light, it will fill the gap in your arrangement. Curved reading lamps give you a relaxing experience when you are reading a book in leisure.
All other seasons don’t bother that much as the winter does. To put it positively, it is the time of freezing temperatures and bone-cracking cold, but it is also the time of white landscapes and marvelous snowflakes. Find the beauty embedded in your mind and make your luxury unavoidable.
