Going for neutral colours is always a good idea when it comes to picking out your interior: they’re timeless, sophisticated and create a calming atmosphere which is vital in your home. That’s why this season, we’re loving it all over – from the floorboards and the wallpaper to the furniture and the finishing touches.

2. Forest green wallpaint

Looking for a change of scenery? There’s no easier way to make a room feel brand new than applying a fresh coat of wallpaint. This season, we suggest a rich shade of forest green which references the nature outside and has a relaxing aura to it. It goes especially well with brass details, so keep that in mind of the rest of the room.

3. Dark modern minimalism

Think dark, moody colours are a no-go when it comes to interior? Think again. When used in the right way and places, they can make your home feel like a cosy cocoon and create a uniquely elegant look. Our favourite combination right now is chocolate, black and grey, as shown in this exposed brick kitchen.

4. Scandinavian influence

Known for its simplicity, minimalism and functionality, Scandinavian interiors never go out of style and will make your home instantly feel a lot more chic. It’s easy to achieve: mix earthy tones with some wooden furniture, big plants and minimalistic decorations. A soft blanket thrown over your sofa will add a nice touch for colder days.

5. Exposed wood

Exposed wood, reminiscent of a country-style lodge, is a huge trend right now. If you’ve always dreamed of escaping to a cottage in winter this is the trend for you. You might be lucky enough to have wooden beams already, but if not you can always create interior pieces from some stacked logs that give off the same vibe. Wicker baskets will make the effect complete.

6. Counterseasonal dreaming

Fed up with the greyness outside? There’s no reason you can’t make your home follow your own calendar and reflect the colours of warmer seasons,  even if the weather outside says something else. We love this butterfly wallpaper, but even just going for soft pastels and fresh flowers will make your four walls feel more lively.

7. Eccentric glamour

Really want to make a statement? This season we’re going for extreme glamour when it comes to homewear: think gold decor, velvet fabrics and high-shine mirrored elements. Rich and royal colours like ochre, navy and burgundy will add an extra special touch. If that’s still not enough, throw in a big coffee table book and some extravagant vases.
