Since the beginning of December I’ve had my fingers crossed for snow! I just love how peaceful the world looks after a good snowfall. And here I find myself, in the middle of January with glorious sunshine bursting through my window… it would seem my dreams of a white winter may have to wait until next year. Or do they…?
I’ve found some beautiful ways to bring the snowy, icy hues of traditional winter, into our homes. There are design tips and inspiration for every room in the house!
Using a wintry palette in your bedroom creates a stunning, hotel chic look like this set-up from The White Company. Wrap up warm in white and mink faux-fur throws or add snowy sparkle with a shimmering chandelier.
With the Christmas tree down and the house looking bare, why not make a beautiful centrepiece for your kitchen table. Twigs are a popular choice, so try to find quirky and original shapes to make it really stand out.
And finally, the hub of your home can also take inspiration from wintry scenes. For a cosier, warmer feel choose grey hues to create your perfect winter wonderland. Fabrics designs such as our very our Titian Damask is perfect for this theme, with its intricate, shimmering damask designs. Or try curtains in our Oracle fabric for a subtler approach to the winter theme.
So if you’re like me and you love that winter look, get creative with greys and whites, but remember to add some cosy touches like generous throws and thick rugs to keep you feeling warm and toasty!
