5 Ways to Ace your Winter Aesthetic

Whether you’re renting an overpriced flat or settled in your dream home, a little interior decorating goes a long way to completing the look you’re after. That’s why we’ve got the hottest Winter trends to make your place feel more chic, so while the weather outside is frightful, your cosy rooms will be oh so delightful. 

Make sure to share all your new decorations with us on social media, too – you can tweet us at @cohorted or find us on Facebook and Instagram. 

#1: Be bold with it

This year, bold prints are totally in style. Whether it’s large print wallpaper or the perfect pictures on canvas, bigger is most definitely better. If you’re not quite convinced on repapering your living room, try peel-and-stick wallpapers, or frame some of your fave prints using free samples from a local hardware store. It’s a perfect way to decide whether you’re ready for a bigger commitment, and you’ll be a complete fashionista at the same time. For a more subtle touch, try a wilder set of duvet covers, bringing some excitement to your sheets without overpowering your main rooms.

#2: The chunkier, the better

If you’re a Winter baby, this is the perfect trend for you. Grab your blankets and jumpers, because knitwear is so in. Much like on the runway, interior designers for Winter 2019 are suggesting that thick blankets, crochet patterns and embroidery are going to lead the way for our homes. So, grab that knitting pattern you love from a top Instagram craft account, get the needles out and pull together a unique cushion cover that all your guests will envy. Or, if you’re looking to be a bit more high fashion and a bit less homespun, find yourself a super-modern embroidered tablecloth or rug that’ll really stand out.

#3: Go ahead and smile

Take That said it best, but it still rings true in 2019. Shine and glitter are really popular this year and throughout Winter is no exception. While glitter isn’t the most environmentally friendly substance, metallic colours can give the same effect without taking a toll on the planet. Think brass, copper and gold; vases, mirrors and lamps all work really well as accents with these colours. Plus, they bring a sophisticated vibe to your home. If you’re feeling brave, you can even DIY these shades with some metallic spray paint and your old furniture – there’s tutorials on YouTube for even the wildest of projects.

#4: Love your curves

Fries, cookies and apparently, coffee tables; they’re all better when they’ve got a curl or a curve. This Winter, embrace a lack of angles, because round furniture is looking to be the next hot trend. Whether you’re getting one of those cool couples’ armchairs, a new dining table or even just photo frames, if you’re wanting to keep up with the fashionistas of the world, be sure to get one that’s circular. Plus, the lack of angles gives the illusion of space, making your room seem bigger. So, if you’re stuck in a smaller place than you’d like, give it a try and watch your room transform.

#5: Get naked

Not you – unless you’re feeling brave! No, I’m talking about your colour scheme. The usual Autumn/Winter trend of neutral shades is back, and alongside the muted mustards and gentle greys, nude is proving very popular. Whether you fancy grabbing a paintbrush and making a mess, or you’re planning to get some new kitchen gadgets, you can’t go wrong with a nice shade of beige. Everything matches with nude shades, plus they can bring a lot of light into your home, giving you the best setting for selfies and for all your Insta snaps showing off your gorgeous new décor.
