A look at interior trends this holiday season

It’s that time of the year again, when everyone loves to indulge in the latest trends for their homes. Livspace offers the latest in home decor, from a rich colour palette to plush materials like leather and velvet and heritage charm.

Rich/Dark Palette

Rich, darker shades of the colour palette are set to rule the interior design scene this season... think dark browns, deep greys, rich purples. Your master bedroom can be the perfect place to flaunt these colours by adding that sultry charm to it. Use it on the headboard or just dip your walls in these hues. If you do not want to go overboard, pair them with whites and pastels to balance it out.

Navy Blue

Navy is BIG this season and you should definitely embrace this colour with open arms. It is gentle to the eye, yet sets the right mood at home. We suggest you team it up with a hint of gold or use a printed wallpaper in navy. Enhance the colour with suitable lighting and you’re good to go.

Leather

One of the most dominant fabrics of winter season is going to be leather and this rich fabric is all set to rule your interiors. Designers suggest using this plush material to re-upholster your furniture. Indulge in leather chairs, sofas and so on. You will feel an air of luxury around your home as soon as you use this trendsetting fabric. The best thing about this is that every style of design can sport leather. Whether you love rustic or modern style of interior design, this fabric fits right in.

Classic white/simplicity

Winter months come with shorter days and darker nights. With all that in line, you should scale back on the clutter and create more space for positivity to flow in at home. As a result, opting for classic white and sleek interiors is always a good idea! Adopt minimalism and opt for a design that is easy on the eyes and looks stylish. A pristine white marble top dining table paired with white chairs can add so much light to any home.

What better way to celebrate winter than being snug in velvet? It pairs perfectly with a hot cup of coffee during winter. Think headboards, lounge sofas and armchairs in soft, rich velvet. Make sure to highlight only certain elements with velvet and not overdo the look. It works perfectly well when the surroundings are in neutral tones.

Distressed furniture

Decorate your home with pieces that have lived to tell a story! Or at least look like they have. Some call it shabby chic furniture because of the interesting blend of vintage, rustic and laid back style. But this furniture can spruce up any space. Pick up a faded wood dining set or a console table for the foyer. The trick is to pick out pieces that look older than they are.

Heritage Charm

This holiday season calls for natural textures. We are talking traditional wooden pieces that is sure to take you back to your childhood! Classic and inviting, wooden furniture has the power to invoke emotions. Do up your interiors in shades of wood stains. If you’re looking for a rustic or vintage vibe, pick up light wooden tones. Alternatively, choose dark tones for a rich and polished finesse. Mahogany, teak and oak are stellar options.

A Touch of Gold

Gold accents are a perfect fix to keep your space cozy and special during this holiday season. These can add a touch of luxury and warmth to any room.

Think gold accents on a subtle wallpaper in your living room, a hanging pendant light in a cozy nook, or gold-toned artefacts in the entryway to instantly set the tone. The rest of the room can be done up in neutrals to keep the focus on the glitz!
