Unfortunately for us it seems like this Great British summer is possibly on it's way out! The sunny days are getting shorter and less frequent and there is much less natural light shining into our interior spaces. With this in mind it’s time to start creating an uplifting sanctuary within our interiors that will substitute the rather dreary outside weather. Why not give your interior space A WARM WELCOME with cosy and inviting colour schemes and textural and inviting fabrics that will create a haven of relaxation and bliss.
Warm colour schemes are a perfect choice for the autumn/winter season and will create an enveloping cosy ambiance in any room of the home. For a rather Mediterranean inspired interior look opt for rich cream, burnt orange, terracotta and maroon colour tones that will come together to create a pop of colour that still remains rich and welcoming. For a more neutral and earthy interior colour scheme you could stick to beige, mocha and chocolate tones for a chic and elegant look within your chosen interior space. Opt for a flocked or textured wallpaper that will draw the eyes to a feature wall and create a stylish statement within your home interior.
Fabrics and soft furnishings are essential in creating a warm interior space. The more textural and eye-catching the fabrics the more cosy they make your interior feel. Velvet is a great choice in a warm and welcoming interior area as the soft and tactile finish will create an enveloping feel within your chosen room. A set of velvet curtains can be teamed with co-ordinating cushions and throws to create the perfect place to snuggle up and watch TV. For a modern interior feel team these velvet cushions with a selection of faux fur designs that will create a more Scandinavian inspired interior feel. If you prefer a classic and traditional hint of cosiness why not create a rustic, country inspired room that features warm red and orange coloured tartan across your curtains, rugs, bedding and cushions that will provide a homely feel in your interior.
Solid oak furniture is a perfect choice for creating a warm and welcoming interior space. The classic finish and golden tones will create an interior ambiance that envelops you in a cosy and warming feel. Opt for chunky and textural items that will create a farmhouse inspired interior look that is perfect when teamed with traditional textiles and colour schemes. For a more modern take on your furniture items then why not select some cream or grey painted furniture home. As most painted items also feature natural wood accents you could also mix and match your painted and solid oak furniture items within the same room for a more visually detailed interior finish.
