Winter is Coming … Cozy Design Ideas!
With the end of daylight savings time last week, it has been a scary reminder that winter is definitely coming! While the design of your spaces should be season-less and work throughout the year, it can be fun to change up decor to match the seasons. It seems pre-mature to start with the holiday decorating, but here are some beautiful spaces that you can cozy up in for this fall and the long winter ahead!
Because we naturally spend more time indoors during the winter, a space to cozy up and read is necessary! But, do not be afraid of showing off your reading materials. These spaces show how cozy a space can become with the addition of books. By taking on an almost library-like feel, all of these spaces encourage you to pull up a chair and dive in!
While birch is typically thought of as a fall or winter material, with some adjustment of accessories, all of these spaces would be comfortable during the summer, as well. Add color though art, pillows & accessories.
Neutrals & Texture
By keeping the space neutral (including the stone-work), these spaces can work for any season. I love the addition of patterns and texture through the stone-work, rugs, pillows and throws.
Mix of Materials
Clients often think that gray color schemes will make their space feel too cold, but by adding texture and warmth through the use of different materials (think: leathers, wood, furs, knits & a mix of metals), these spaces feel cozy. The warmer toned room incorporates that mix too, to create a space that makes you want to curl up and relax.
Enjoy what we have left of fall before winter sets in!
