Home improvements and embellishments are at the top of the list for many of us, lets face it there is nothing nicer than surveying a spanking new kitchen, bathroom or extension. But you don’t need to raid your bank and embark on major modifications to give your home the ‘wow’ factor, a lick of paint and some cleverly combined fabrics can do the trick. It may be a little early to talk about Christmas just yet, but in the months leading up to Christmas, you can give your abode a real boost by changing the colour scheme to a deliciously warm one.
The Ideal Home Show at Christmas is held on 23rd – 27th November at the Olympia London, and visitors will find a host of brilliant inspirational ideas for updating their interiors and bringing a seasonal feel.
Most impressions of a cosy interior during the colder months, include a room which is focused on a roaring fire, perfect to come home to. Your décor can reflect this atmosphere,with beautiful and earthy, autumnal colours like russet reds and shades of warm cinnamon. Textured linens and chunky knits also set the scene, and can include accents of vibrant copper and rich deep wood tones. Log burners are a popular addition, creating a place to feel snug and inviting, as you sit and gaze into the flames sipping a glass of wine or mulled cider.
Wallpaper which recreates a country cottage theme includes an exposed brick or stone design providing an interesting textured look. Wool throws in brown tweed or rust orange and grey tartan help this concept to appear authentic, with perhaps a carefully placed horned stag ornament to add effect. Retro storage trunks and tempting vintage style leather armchairs complete the picture. Ensure a charismatic Christmas with eye catching tongue and groove wood panelling, decorative Roman blinds and a snazzy wood burning stove. A mostly neutral colour scheme can be heated up too, with touches of intense burnt orange and red brick.
For a lighter more airy feel consider mood lifting botanical print curtains, soft furnishings or wallpaper in shades of coffee and duck egg blue. These themed looks can be produced in the form of cushions, rugs, lamps and artwork. Distressed wood furniture, woven baskets and autumn/winter dried flower arrangements will define this natural look, and get you in the mood for the festivities.
