Dress your interiors with warmth, elegance & richness by switching to a darker palette for walls & upholstery. You need not change your furniture for bringing this change.

Introducing bold shades which compliment each other work best for layering while giving a bright & cheerful look. Warm sunshine yellow with vintage navy blue on a grey backdrop gives this room a chic yet cozy feel.

Brass & Antique Homeware
This year the trend is back to roots. Take inspiration from old traditions & indulge in vignettes inspired from cultures around the world. Metallic centrepiece or accent pieces in brass & copper spread a glint of warmth to a space.
For my Indian decor, I’ve displayed grandma’s treasured copper vessels on a rustic wooden slice along with candles & light. Together, they display a stunning vignette.
Embrace Indoor Plants
Be it any season, the idea of a healthy home is always a priority for interior makeovers. While this season limits the outdoor loungings bring in the outdoors inside. Infuse a breath of fresh air by using indoor plants & succulents as an interior accent.
Restoring greenery in your house brings life back into the gloomy winter days & makes it look picture perfect.
Twigs, sticks, wood slices, wood curls, dry flowers & potpourri make a up for a fabulous winter decoration. These natural items when styled & put together become a chic centrepiece while spreading an earthy aroma.
Aroma & Candles
Shift furniture close to windows where sunlight peeps through. Create nooks to enjoy a cup of warm coffee while soaking some warm sunshine. For chilled evenings create a space where you can sink in with a good book & a glass of wine.
So let’s get going & add a touch of winter decor to our nest of bliss. Hope these ideas inspire you to just gather what you already have, spread it in style & Voila!! You have turned your home into a cozy & comfortable den this Winter season.
