Cool Winter Homeware Trends for the Season
Take the chill factor out of the cold air and relax at your palace with these winter homeware trends.
The bite of the wind and increasing chance of rain is upon us yet again with winter just around the corner. And ‘there’s no place like home’ rings particularly true during the months of June, July and August. Seeking comfort at home during the cooler days and nights is all the more soul-warming with a few additions perfectly matched for cosy winter living. The latest winter homeware trends all centre around the notion of warmth, beauty and enhancing a nurturing sense of solace and sanctuary. Here are four homeware trends we have our eye on.
Winter Homeware Trend: Texture Play
The easiest way to create a cosy feeling in a home is to layer textures. Keep to a particular hue to avoid the home feeling disjointed and play around with mixing of thick and thin textures to elevate any room. Quick ways can be: ferm LIVING's tapestry woven throw blanket that doubles as a wall hanging, mixing throw cushions on the lounge, investing in a beautiful textured rug like Life Interiors' Elm Rug, sourcing decorative items like Citta's Costa Pillar Candle and looking for pieces with added texture like terracotta.
Winter Homeware Trend: Going Green
Add a pop of colour this season with the addition of soft forest green homewares. Not only is this colour guaranteed to suit any style of home, it's also said to have calming benefits due to its connection and connotations with nature. Studies have shown that the colour green can boost levels of optimism, feelings of comfort and calm and can even enhance memory recall! Bonus!
So, bring down your stress levels in style with a few new winter home additions in shades of green. We are loving Bed Threads' Olive and Sage table setting bundle, which includes scalloped placemats and napkins, and a lush linen tablecloth, perfect for those who love to entertain. For a big statement, upgrade your living room set-up to include the beautiful olive green Piloti Chaise Lounge Chair from Living by Design.
Winter Homeware Trend: Check Mate
Check or gingham, there's no denying this pattern is everywhere right now. From homewares to fashion, this Y2K classic is a trend that isn't going anywhere. Available in a range of colours, it is a versatile style statement that can be incorporated into any home's colour palette or aesthetic. To dabble in the trend, a simple cushion upgrade courtesy of Middle of Nowhere will do the trick. For home cooks, Bonnie and Neil's too-cute Tiny Checkers Oven Gloves are equal parts practical and stylish.
Winter Homeware Trend: Curve Appeal
An update from the popular bulbous shape of 2021, this year it's all about gentle curves and organic forms. Soften up your winter abode with the addition of a curved side chair like Coco Republic's Zurich Occasional Chair. Or add a small touch with the wavy-shaped Audrey Floor Mirror from McMullin & Co. Careful not to go overboard and instead let the curve piece be a statement and stand out from items in your home to draw attention to its unique shape.
Getting your home ready for the cooler winter temperatures involves only a few smart style touches. From upping the cosy factor in every space to the go-to seasonal tones, this is your handy guide to the best winter homewares trends.
