Top Interior Design Trends for Winter

With the end of autumn in sight, winter is now in our thoughts when it comes to decor. An exciting time for interior design, there are so many inspiring ideas that will transform your home for the cold season ahead. With cosy in mind, the following trends are making their mark. Therefore, here are some of the top interior design trends for winter that you should be following in your own home.

Navy Blue 

 One surprising trend which is making waves this winter season is the injection of navy blue in interior design. The beautiful colour is a popular choice as it has a warming effect in a room and can help to make the room cosy and calming; both of these attributes are highly important at this time of the year. Navy blue has been around for ages but the tone is now bang on trend as it gives off a modern feel to any room. And rather than a lighter blue which can give a cold feel to the room, the navy colour is a luxurious option for your room. You could paint your lounge in the dark blue or opt for the warm colour in your bedroom to add the trend to your house. Or you could even go for a bold wallpaper in the colour which will transform the room. Navy blue accents are also an ideal choice for your house such as floral portraits in the sophisticated colour or even flowers which will add a touch of the bang-on trend colour to your home. And you can get some furniture in the shade such as beautiful angel chairs from Sloane and Sons Tub Chairs or you could even opt for a navy sofa for your lounge.


Interior design in winter 2018 is all about luxury materials which create a warm and cosy effect. Luxe is a popular trend which has been building momentum over the last few seasons and it will be in its prime during the winter. It’s so easy to add a touch of the glam style in your home. For starters, you need to focus on materials like velvet and marble which create that decadence look in your household. You might want to go for a beautiful piece of velvet furniture which will create a statement in your home. Or even going for a marble table will add a touch of luxe to your decor. You can also add brass details such as accents in your lounge to ensure you stay on trend. Brass ornaments and frames are the perfect way to add luxe to your room. As Ideal Home explains, try to go for key colours like dusty rose and burnished gold. These both ooze luxe and are the perfect way to add an expensive feel to the rooms in your home.


With retro being a continual trend in the interior world, you will find that the 80’s in particular will be a top trend as we enter the winter months. You will see that bold colours will be making the rounds and it’s an easy way to keep your home on-trend. Go for golds, reds and yellows to add some of that retro style into your property. Combine different bold colours to get a really good effect and an old-school feel. You can also opt for retro lighting which will also add some 80’s feel into your house. Think neon lighting and oversized lamp shades which will help your home to be bang-on trend this season. Retro accents are also an ideal way to add a touch of the trend in your home. As described on Good Homes Magazine, dress coffee tables with gold lamps and retro clocks which will help to create that theme.


Another theme which keeps making an appearance is nordic and it’s still as strong as we enter the winter months. To give your home a nordic feel so its bang on trend, you should opt for natural furniture pieces such as wooden chairs and tables which will give the room a fresh and nature-like feel. You can add rugs in a faux fur which will also add a cosy feel which is perfect for the winter season. Go for browns and greys which are typical in the nordic style. You can also add throws and cushions in these dark, cosy colours to your bedroom and on your sofa. And don’t be afraid of patterned pieces which will add some life to your rooms.
