The Warmth of Winter

July 13, 2016

All around us colours are changing.

Each year the fresh, cool, lighter colours of summer slowly deepen and transform into the warmer earthier tones of autumn. As winter sets in and the mercury continues to drop, the mood changes again and so do our preferences for textures and fabrics.

It’s amazing to see how much the change in season affects our choices, our emotions and even our purchases!

Over the last little while we’ve enjoyed working with the shift from pale linens and whites to deeper colour tones, lots of velvet and some gorgeous textures and patterns.

There’s no doubt that creating something cosier and warmer in our bedrooms feels right at this time of year, that doesn’t have to mean dark colours of course, or even a whole new bedhead – just adding some new cushions, a blanket and maybe a rug can switch your nest from summer cool to a cosy winter den.

Shift Property Styling takes our Paddo Bedhead and warms up the bedroom using woollen textures, earthy blues and grey tones.

Lets take a look at how we’re transitioning with the seasons, drawing in the warmth and keeping the cold winter weather at bay…

The Colours

You don’t have to search far to find styled shots, design elements and homewares that have been inspired by Pantone’s 2016 colour(s) of the year, Rose Quartz (Pantone 13-1520) and Serenity (15-3919). Image below from

But as the winter season continues, we’re finding ourselves surrounded by deeper, richer emerald greens and inky blues (image below from Warwick Fabrics). Colours that reflect the mood of the season or our reaction to it.

The Fabrics

As always Warwick Fabrics provide an exceptional range for all seasons and this Winter is no different.

Along with changing colour preferences, we’ve continued to see Warwick’s warmer woollens, more luxurious velvets and patterned fabrics becoming a favourite in recent months.

As well as the Warwick Fabrics range featured on our site, we often source fabric options from both local and international fabric houses at our client’s request.

The Textures

Layers of different textures, colour tones and patterns add warmth and interest to a room.

The team at Vault Interiors have captured the essence of winter style with our Raffles Bedhead taking centre stage in Dolce Ink from Warwick Fabrics.

The Designs

In addition to the shift in colours and textures, clients have been tending towards bedhead designs with a little more detail.

Some clever BedNester’s have also been thinking ahead to how they will store their favourite winter throws, quilts and woollen blankets when we enter the warmer months.

We’ll leave you with a few of our crowd favourites this winter…
