Today Design Build Ideas will show you 5 interior design trends for winter. A new season is upon us and with it an opportunity to spruce up your home. Stay warm and enjoy!
Soft accessories with extra comfort like flannel sheets, cashmere or wool throws, and cotton quilts are the winter interior design trend that warms all over. Having options folded over the back of a sofa, thrown on a bed, or rolled in a large basket also give the visual feeling of warmth and comfort that appeals to the senses. Knitted accessories are taking the spotlight this winter, with knitted poufs and huge chunky cable-knits replacing subtle weaves. Textiles can take other forms as well.

Warm Wood Elements
In cold weather, a space with wood finishes or accents gives it a warming effect while acting as a natural insulator. Swap out a painting for a reclaimed wood art piece or introduce a rustic wood side table like a natural tree stump to place warm beverages. A simple basket with cut fire logs also gives the feeling of being in a great rustic cottage.
One of the home’s best places to gather in winter is around the fireplace. Beautiful focal points for kinetic lighting, these add a special ambience to a room. Let your fireplace make a statement with interesting screens that show off pattern and style. A hot alternative to fire logs is adorning the inside of your fireplace with a candelabra that elevates pillars at varying heights.
Metallic and Mirrored Surfaces
Another way to cast shine around the home is by incorporating accents with metallic surfaces and mirrored details. Not only will having different finishes offer design interest and contrast, but their illuminating quality will help with light reflection too.
Shades of Grey
It is no wonder varied shades of grey are a favourite winter interior design trend. Inspired by nature’s neutral palette, hues of slate, charcoal, stone, mist and fog make their way inside in both prominent furniture pieces as well as accent decor.
