Hot Stuff: 17 Room Design Ideas For Winter

No matter how short or long, how mild or biting, how sunny or snowy your Winter is, one constant is true – you either love it or hate it.

We’re here to tell you it doesn’t have to be like that! It’s time to bridge the divide so all of us embrace the cold with delight each and every day.

Impossible you say? No way. Explore 17 super hot room design ideas, below, that will make you want to see more of this sensational season.

Winter is now hot stuff.

1. Throw warmth around

There’s no such thing as too many throws, so take them out of the cupboard or treat yourself to a new addition. The current trend is toward soft, textured ‘one colour’ throws. Think cashmere, sheepskin, faux fur.

WHAT WINTER: Give a casual living space instant warmth with some textured throws and this ‘Fall In Central Park’ photo art print.

2. Bulk up the bedding

Beds are never as beautiful as they are in Winter. We get to bulk up with pillows and blankets. Give yourself permission to get carried away. Add plenty!

3. Go for gold

Gold brings a warm glow to the home. Don’t limit yourself to a gold ornament here and there. Go all out and lavish an entire wall in a lick of golden paint.

Home is where your hearth is. I mean home is where your heart is…? Both work! For either genuine warmth or even just a feeling of warmth, add a gas fireplace or gas fire ornament.

10. White, white and more white

This idea is perfect for lovers of Winter. Those who cannot get enough. If you have a white neutral decor, match the white wintery outdoors by adding white on white. Accents might include white birch, white pine cones, silvery trimmings or perhaps a white canvas print that brings it all together.

Winter is the time to finally invest in a matching set of bedside lamps. Why? To avoid getting out of bed to turn out the light, of course! Add ambient lighting to your bedside, tuck in and enjoy that good book.

17. Get into metal

We tend to spend more time indoors in Winter, but that doesn’t mean you have to be boring. It’s time to glam things up with metallic accents – gold, silver or copper (or all three!).
