Winter décor trends in 2019
There’s something glorious about winter. It’s the fashion, the fur-lined jackets, duck-down coats, high-top boots, and fabulous leather gloves. Not to mention flowing scarves and hip hats. But it’s also about changing up the décor in the house – a little or a lot, to fit the season. So, we’ll look at some winter décor trends in 2019.
The darker the duvet…
The creepier? Popular duvet covers in winter are rich, creamier colours. Or even peach, slightly orange-tinged. It’ll help give your bedroom a warmer feel – psychologically, merely seeing something that has the faint glow of a warm, winter fire is enough to feel a bit warmer. Then in what might seem a contradiction, an earthy, deep brown blanket is good for when you tuck in at night. It’ll conjure up images of a bear hibernating in a cave as you snuggle in to hold the 10-degree temperatures at bay.
And if you’re extra cold, why not get yourself a feline friend? Like rockets fired from an F16, they’re natural heatseekers. They’ll seek you out in the chill of the night and come cuddle with you.
Plus, from a décor point-of-view, they add something special to the couch when they’re lounging on it.
Whether it’s on the wall or on cushions, floral designs are a great fit in winter. They remind one of the warmth of spring, for one thing. Florals are also timeless. They’ll stay “in season”, excuse the pun, whatever the season. And what’s better than something symbolic of life? You can take this even further by getting metal-crafted flowers and placing them in a vase. (You could find some at @Home.) Sure, they’re a bit “cold”, but there is a certain panache to metal-worked flowers (and best of all, you don’t have to remember to water them). But on the topic, some plant life is nice to have in the house, and at this time of year, why not go with lavender? A dash of purple certainly will spruce up the room, whether it’s the living room or the bedroom.
You can be a little grey.
Grey is considered an “evergreen” colour. It works all year round. And it works in winter with certain objects around the house, such as lamps. There’s something quite quaint about grey lamps. It just adds a nice accent to your home, especially as our winters rarely get grey themselves. So they balance nicely with the near constant sunlight we have.
But as you’ve seen in the other pictures we’ve featured in this blog, grey works well with couches too.
Paintings to hang.
Again, “warmth” is the key word here. Whether it’s an oil painting of a sunset with vivid red and purple hues or it’s a fireplace with umber brown fire logs by the side, it’ll bring out the magic of winter for your home.
Fine, but where do I get all this?
Check out our stores Coricraft, @Home, and Loads of Living for most of your home décor needs. Both Woolworth’s and Pick n Pay often has lovely flowers and plants available for purchase. And the Sunday Rooftop Market may have paintings you’ll fall in love with.
