Create warmth in your home this winter season!
When you envisage winter, it is often with the notion of long dark nights spent inside (vs vibrant sunsets and BBQs outdoors!) Therefore, it is important that the space you retreat to on these cold nights is warm, inviting and most importantly, a place that you will enjoy! One way to create a beautiful space that is inviting this winter (without having to don your tool belt), is by injecting warmth through colour in furniture and accessories. Colours that automatically spring to mind when you think of winter are browns/oranges/bronzes/greys and charcoals (with the latter 3 colours trending in interiors at the moment).
The La-Z-Boy Sorrento push back chair in Marsala, when combined with deep blues, charcoals and bronzes, works well. It is bold, but sophisticated in appearance. Marsala also happens to be the Pantone colour of the year for 2015, which can give you confidence when choosing this colour theme (click here to find out more).
However, in addition to the darker, bolder colour palette, a lighter pastel colour palette is also very popular this winter. Light pinks, blues and teal greens, when matched with lighter wood tones, looks fantastic. If you start with a neutral toned sofa, like the La-Z-Boy Florence sofa in grey, you can can add warmth and vibrancy through cushions, throws and accessories. The La-Z-Boy Florence sofa will be well balanced when matched with light pastel pink and teal green cushions (get more inspiration for the colour teal here). Add a warm toned wooden clock and light fittings, and for bit of texture, wooden vases and comfy throw.
Design Tip: “Use neutral or plain fabric choices for your furniture & layer colour, pattern & texture into your accessories. This way you can easily switch styles with the season” – La-Z-Boy team
So feel confident this winter that any interior can be warmed up with an injection of colour. Combined with the right amount of texture in your furniture and accessories, you can be assured you’ll be comfortable this winter.
