Top 5 Trends in Home Decor for Winter 2015

Top 5 Trends in Home Decor for Winter 2015

1. Knitting patterns for your home 

One of the joys of winter is snuggling into a warm knitted jumper – so why not give your home décor the winter woolies treatment, too? Chunky knitted throws, cushions and footstools almost make winter worth waiting for. “Knitted homeware is one of this season's hottest trends. Match your colour schemes with stunning tonal shades or create bright accents and riots of texture,” says craft guru Helen at LoveKnitting.com.

2. Woodland life

Give nature a home this winter and bring elements of the natural world inside. Embrace natural greens and woody tones and complement with hare, badger, deer and fox motifs and hints of exposed, wooden textures. This ‘distressed’ sitting rabbit from livelaughlove.co.uk will add some gentle rustic charm to a child’s bedroom.

3. Vintage Explorer

Our fast-paced, technology-driven modern life leaves many of us yearning for a different time. Just looking at a vintage map like this one – Age of Exploration by Henri Abraham Chatelain, circa 1719, available as a fine art print from old-map.com can draw you dreamily into an era of exploration, discoveries and danger. To evoke a sense of adventure in your home, scour boot sales and charity shops for travel weary suitcases, Davy lamps, vintage cameras, old compasses and globes, botanical prints and well-thumbed Baedeker and Bradshaw travel guides.

4. Monochrome set

 

It’s black, it’s white, and everything in between. Opting for a monochrome colour scheme in your home decor this winter means you can go to town with patterns, accessories and feature walls, which works perfectly for a study space. We love this Hampstead wallpaper from independent British paint and wallpaper manufacturer Little Greene, originally published by John Line in the 1950s. The company has worked with English Heritage since 2005 to create period paints and stunning wallpaper designs inspired by historical documents. For more inspiration visit littlegreene.com.

5. Feeling folksy 

 

Folk art incorporates vibrant, repeating patterns that energise your home with colourful, homespun joy, even on the wettest of weekends. It’s easy to add a friendly, folksy touch with block print table linen and cheery earthenware jugs, just like these from The Other Duckling.
