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 five homeware trends we have our eye on. 

Winter Homeware Trend: Up the Cosy Factor

This winter homeware trend highlights how a few new chosen creature comforts will make everyday routines that bit more luxurious. Baina’s much-coveted face, hand and bath organic-cotton towels in pastel, sage green and terracotta tones. Our pick? The chequered-patterned options. Light up a sumptuous candle – and there are plenty of options here but here are a few of our favourites. Fazeek’s warming Cedarwood + Saffron Wave Candle is housed in a shapely vessel that makes a style statement atop any table, cabinet or shelf. 

And if you’re in Sydney, a couple of new store openings means you can experience sensual notes in person: Maison Balzac’s new shopfront in Surry Hills (our winter pick is the Miel D’été) and the ultimate luxury option, Cire Trudon’s boutique in Paddington and the leather, clove and amber-infused aroma of the Ernesto candle. 

Winter Homeware Trend: Statement Bulbous Shapes

This isn’t strictly a winter homeware trend but shows no signs of slowing down. This playful look has gained serious style points with #sofagoal: the ubiquitous B&B Italia Camaleonda sofa designed by Mario Bellini. You don’t need to go big to get this joyous feel at your place though – turn to accessories that fit the bill. Rubble Workshop’s lamps and candelabras (now stocked at Sitchu favourite Curated Spaces) imagines what The Flintstones’ Barney Rubble would have at his home so there’s a sense of Stone-Age-leaning fun at play here. 

If you’re keen on bigger-ticket investments, consider the velvet contours of the Monet armchair from Life Interiors for a colour-happy scheme, the tactile bouclé texture of Coco Republic’s Atelier Slipper Chair for a more refined and elegant affiar, or the gracious, comforting curves of Jardan’s Valley sofa that is tailor-made for contemporary style.

Winter Homeware Trend: Amber, Mustard & Peach Tones

The earthy shades of the colour spectrum are a timeless winter homeware trend, across all decorative elements. Amber glass just captures sunlight in the most beautiful way and an easy way to introduce this beautiful, warming tone is with Freedom’s Studio ribbed-glassware range from a carafe and tumbler set to tall glasses. On the brighter end of the mustard yellow shades is this huggable Big Boucle cushion in Buttered Popcorn (yum!) from Hommey, ideal for your sofa or bed. We can't go past these terracotta and rust linen placemats from Bed Threads.

And speaking of bed, In Bed’s new darker-terracotta-toned Brick range is a stunning addition to your linen collection – go for the quilted bedcover for complete weekend-sleep-in comfort. Or for a softer, sweeter transeasonal look, try Bed Thread’s latest Peach linen.  

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. Whether you choose to buy up on little luxuries or go all in on that dream statement sofa, there’s a decorative option to suit your style right here.
