Winter Colours for Your Home

Last Updated: Jun 28, 2012 by

Topic: Painting

The colours that you choose to use in your home this winter will depend on one main thing – whether you want embrace winter or try to bring a bit more sunshine back into your life!  No matter which side of the fence you sit on, there are some great colours that you can introduce into your home through things such as throws, cushions, small appliances, and other accessories.  For more ideas on winter colours, have a chat with your local interior designer or paint supplier.

Wrap Yourself in Winter

If you’re one of those people that love the colder weather and embrace the season with open arms, it makes sense to use colours that allow you to wrap yourself in winter.  Think dark, rich tones that are enveloping and warming at the same time. Dark purples, chocolates, moody greys, deep blues and greens, maroons...these are all gorgeous winter colours that can be used incredibly effectively!  Use as much or as little as you like.  For example, you could drape a rich wine throw over your cream coloured lounge, or paint a gorgeous deep gray feature wall that’s accented by smooth silvers and jewelled tones.

Invite the Sunshine In

If you miss the bright sunshiny days of spring and summer, you’d greatly appreciate the opportunity to bring some of that cheeriness and joy into your home to help you get through the dark, dreary months!  Look for vibrant, eye popping colours such as electric blues, reds, yellows (of course!), cheery greens, and so on.  You don’t need to use a lot of the colour but you’ll get such an excellent impact from it.  Just think, you could just introduce a brightly patterned cushion or throw rug and that’ll be more than enough to lift your mood while you’re watching TV.  You can choose how you use the bright colours too – mix and match them for something that’s chaotic yet cohesive or use one key colour as an accent piece throughout your overall colour scheme.
