There’s just a slight nip in the air, wardrobes are being rejigged for fall, and we’re craving hot chocolate. With winter ’round the corner, your home could use some restyling as well. From winter-appropriate rugs and carpets to curtains and lighting, there’s a lot you can do to make your interiors feel warm and cosy. Colour schemes, textures, prints and patterns, and lighting – interior designer Sarita Handa gives us the top ways to deck up the living space for fall.
Upholstery and curtains
“The focus should be on intricate, ornamental designs in varied finishes and elemental colours such as gold or brass, providing a delightful contrast against the clean, pragmatic minimalism of hand-cut glass. You can also blend oriental motifs in rich colours with geometric patterns. All this featured across mirrors, vases, jewellery boxes, and table décor items.”
“Winter decor is incomplete without contemplating the right kind of floor spreads. In terms of carpets, think polychromatic vibrance. Modern, abstract patterns take inspiration from the predetermined symmetry and beauty of Nature’s ‘controlled chaos’. Pick up pieces which blend warm wool and light cotton to suit a variety of comfort levels and preferences.”
