Warming Winter Looks
Furs and Skins
Fur and animal skin accents are a hot trend at the moment and they add a layer of warmth to most any design. Fur rugs are beautiful and fluffy but they can be difficult to maintain. That’s why we opt for fur on furniture and leather or short-haired skin on the floor. A natural hide or swath of fur lends an element of funkiness to even the most traditional piece of furniture. Lay one across a couch, a chair or even a table to add a patch of organic style to your regular furnishings.
When it comes to decorating with metallics, gold will never get old! A soft gleam of gold can make a closet bathroom feel as sophisticated as a grand foyer… and if there’s one particular place that could use some warmth, it’s the bathroom. One of the best things about gold is that you can incorporate just a touch or whole pools of gold into your space. A simple gold picture frame warms up your art while a shimmery gold chandelier or a rich gold velvet sofa can totally heat things up. There are a lot of misconceptions in the design world about mixing gold and silver. We love them and they complement each other more than you’d think. Gold helps take away the industrial feeling of silver can have and silver keeps gold shiny! An antique gold paint pairs beautiful with simple silver accessories, for example. With elements of gold, you can put together a warm interior that shines!
Give your home the feeling of a warm mountain cabin with just a couple of pieces of rustic wood accent furniture. A raw wood cabinet or chunky would bar stools lend a comfy, casual vibe to any space. Wooden stools, benches and chairs are made even warmer and comfier with the addition of soft cushions and pillows. As a general rule of rustic-ness, we say the more the material resembles actual firewood, the warmer your room will feel.
