From animalia on the walls to textured storage cabinets, vintage leather sofas, timber accent tables, forest green, look-at-me lamps and vivid velvet, winter is all about rich colour, touchable texture and timeless timber. From a fringed rug to a faux fur throw, we’ve got easy accessories to go as well as statement pieces to update any tired (weary, sleepy, worn out) interior…
- Animal Art
From Australiana to the Llama Rama, this season’s walls are all about wildlife, and the woollier the better. Whether you pick a single feature print or opt for a gallery-style arrangement of fab fauna, it’s a quick and easy way to give your walls some wow with a look that’s so right now.
2. Feel-me Furniture
From leather cabinets to open wardrobes upholstered in recycled military canvas to shiny metallic to patterned drawers, this season we’re loving furniture you want to feel. It’s a fresh way to add touchable texture and depth to any swish space and an alternative (or addition) to rugs, cushions and throws for those who prefer a less fussy, more masculine-looking space.
3. Red Velvet
So red velvet is a thing right now, and we’re not talking about cupcakes. Whether you want to fully embrace the look and buy a red investment sofa in va-va-velvet, or show it off in an armchair for a slightly (only slightly) more subtle effect, it’s a warm, wintry look that’s hard not to love.
4. Light up your life
Lamps are back in a big way this winter and they’re bold, bright, patterned, gold and a super flexible – and fashionable – option for a quick pick me up in any room. Whether you add them to your bedside tables, pop them aside a sofa, use them on your desk or opt for a fab floor lamp over an intimate dining table….the latest lighting is made for experimenting.
5. Timber accent tables
From slatted styles to carved single pieces of pine to chunky rectangular tables to side tables to slide under the sofa, this season’s accent tables let the timber do the talking. So we’ll do the same…
6. Be seen in forest green
A little deeper than the emerald green we were crushing on last winter, this season’s forest shades are gooooorgeous and they pair beautifully with dark timbers, faux fur accents and a splash of old gold.
7. Have fun with fur and fringing
Looking for a quick and easy way to update your space? Then fling fur cushions, throws or fringed rugs all over the place. From textured looks underfoot to a snuggly spot to cuddle up to on the couch, adding texture you can touch is a tried-and-tested winter trend for a reason.
8. Lived-in leather
Not much says snuggle up like a lived-in leather sofa, and while these still need you to do the living bit, the fact they’re crafted from buttery soft leather premium leather which will age beautifully means that while they’re bang on trend this winter, they’ll be serving you in style for many more to come.
9. Dark timber
Timber tones are deeper this season, adding drama to winter interiors. Dark timbers look divine against creams, greys and neutrals, but also look seriously schmick with this season’s vivid velvets and regal-inspired tones or ruby, navy, teal and emerald.
