Top Winter Design Tips of 2018

Although the first day of winter isn’t technically until December 21st, that hasn’t stopped Mother Nature from sending snow and frost our way.

And since we’re already experiencing winter weather, we at Birmingham Design Studio want to share with you some winter design tips and trends.

Here is our list of the top 5 winter interior design tips of 2018:

Dark Palettes

Our favorite dark palette colors include deep greens, purples, grays, and browns. These colors take dominance over other colors in each room they’re in. They also reflect comfort and a more laid-back energy that people usually have in the winter.

Blankets

As with every winter season, blankets and throws are popular again!

This year, the trend is focusing much more on comfort than it has in the past. Some examples of this

include

  • Soft and cozy fabrics (cashmere, faux-fur, wool),
  • Mismatched comforter and pillow sets,
  • Decorative pillows, and
  • Extra throws and blankets on top of comforters.

Sparkling Accents

Sparkling accents bring a sense of winter and the look of snow inside your house, without bringing in any of the cold.

A little goes a long way with sparkle though. Too much will be distracting and oftentimes too bright.

Some types of sparkling accents include white snowflakes, gold stars, or poinsettias in rose gold pots.

Wreaths

Largely considered a Christmas tradition, we think that wreaths should be popular all winter long.

Wreaths can be hung on the front door, in windows, or over the mantle. Considering that wreaths fall into the darker green color palette we already love, that’s another positive. Wreaths also symbolize growth, which is great to keep in mind going into the New Year.

If you want a real wreath, you will have to replace it a couple of times, however artificial wreaths are also sold.

Textures/Patterns

Textures and patterns from all over the world have been popping up in clothes and in homes this season.

Some of the most popular textures are

  • Rugged nomadic styles,
  • Intricate block prints,
  • Rich mohairs,
  • Velvets,
  • Paisleys, and
  • Glittery sequins.
