Whether it’s special for the holidays, or you just want to add a bit of wintery décor to your home, decorating for winter can be fun and inspiring. The colors of the season are rich, deep, and full of character. But how do you choose which ones work best for your space?
Well, the home styling and decoration experts here at Fireside Furniture in New Jersey have some ideas. So to help you along, below is a list of winter color palettes that will make your space feel cozy and warm this winter. Check them out!
Rich Jewel Tones
Rich jewel tones are a greay way to bring the beauty of winter into your home. From deep reds and rich purples to bold blues and greens, these colors have a certain warmth that’s hard to resist. In the bedroom, consider using them as an accent wall or as part of a bedding set. You could even go all out by painting one entire wall in one of these rich shades! You could also try adding a few jewel-toned accessories here or there, like a throw pillow or vase.
For kitchens, bathrooms, and even living rooms, you can use jewel tones for any room if you want some extra depth in color without going overboard with bright yellows or pinks. Deep purples make great accents for kitchen cabinets. Dark reds can complement wood floors nicely when used sparingly on furniture pieces like end tables. Royal blues look especially good against black granite countertops!
Mixing light and dark blues are the best way to pull off this look. You can achieve this in either of these ways:
- Light blue on top with darker blue on the bottom.
- Darker over lighter.
- Using both light and dark blues.
Traditional Red and Green
If you want to create a traditional Christmas vibe, red and green are your color palettes. They are the colors of the season, from Christmas trees to wreaths on doors. They’re also what adorn our homes in lights during this time of year.
Speaking of lights, if you want your home to sparkle this winter, opt for white lights along with red ornaments on your tree. They’ll give off an extra glow when they reflect off the snow outside your window.
Metallics are your best bet if you’re looking for the perfect balance of bold and soft. To ensure that you don’t go overboard, use them sparingly, as accents, not as the main color scheme. Try mixing a touch of gold with white or silver to create a luxurious look in any room.
Metallics are also great for accessories. Add one or two pieces, an accent pillow, vase, etc., to place on top of neutral-colored furniture. This creates contrast without overpowering and is much easier than painting everything.
Pink, a warm and feminine color, is best used in small, intimate, and private rooms. It is most effective when paired with white or light wood furniture. If you want to add some color and pattern to your pink room, consider using dark red accents such as pillows or rugs.
Bright Pop of White
If your living room is feeling stale and you want to add some life, try adding a few touches of white to the space. White walls or furniture can make a room feel larger and more modern while still inviting and warm.
Navy is a classic color that looks great in any house room. Use it in your guest room to create a calming atmosphere, or use it in the living room to contrast with other colors. Navy is also an easy color to incorporate into a small space because of its depth and ability to make things look larger than they are.
It works well with other colors because it is versatile; navy can be paired with almost any color you can think of, whether neutral or bright. It makes bold statements while complementing bolder hues like red and orange pillows or bright green artwork.
Cool neutrals are great for creating a serene space. They can be calming, refreshing, and soothing. If you’re looking for the perfect palettes to create a relaxing atmosphere in your home, try using cool neutrals like gray, blue, green, and brown.
Stick with Cool Blues and Grays
Gray is a classic color combination, and it’s easy to see why. Gray is a neutral that goes with everything, so it won’t clash with your other furniture or décor. It also has a calming effect on the eye, making it ideal for winter. Blue is another excellent choice for your home this season because of its soothing properties. It can make you feel relaxed just by looking at it. If you’re looking for some inspiration, check out popular blue and gray combos below:
