Play with colors

Play with colors

Since it’s the winter season, go for warmer color palettes. Charcoal gray, rich brown, navy blue, and winter red are some of the color tones that you can use when you redesign your home for a cosy winter interior.

If you are feeling a little adventurous, you may also refresh your walls with a new colour. Yes, you can paint interior walls in the wintertime. When painting indoors during cold weather, it is important to ensure that the room is adequately heated. You just have to make sure to choose a paint that is specifically designed for cold weather application to prevent any issues from arising due to colder temperatures.

These colours are very inviting and promote a sense of calm in a space.

Transorm with layers

Transform with layers.

During the cold winter months, having layers is very important not just in clothing but also in the interiors of the house.

From cushions to throws, from rugs to seat covers and accents, the more you have, the better it is for the design and the function. We need to keep the cold at bay after all.

Experiment with lights

Experiment with lights

Dark, cold evenings will be a regular part of your nights so to keep the space warm, go for mood lights and other ambient lights. Try to also use dimmers and lamps to create different light textures in your home.

Lights more than just provide illumination in a space; it also sets the mood and, in some ways, the temperature, so it’s important that you take note of your light choices in your winter house interior.

Bring the outdoors inside

Bring the outdoors inside

Since you’ll be mostly stuck indoors during the winter season, bringing the outdoors inside would be wonderful. Plants, small water features, or even playing nature sounds inside the house will make you feel more connected to nature despite all the cold.
