New Delhi, Nov 26 : Winters are truly magical as it brings along the joy of sipping a hot cup of tea, the ease of snuggling in your blanket and the charm of basking in the afternoon sunlight. While it is the season of lounging around in the house wearing your comfy pyjamas and working from your bed, this season also brings along lazy mood swings.
How about you prep-up your space based on your mood? Some like it to be warm, some vibrant and some look for the best of both worlds. This year beat the winter gloominess by tweaking your home decor and relish the cold season thoughtfully with these simple yet effective ideas, shared by Parul Mittal, Director, Greenlam Industries Ltd.
Embracing vibrant nooks!
When the winters hit your mood can take a backseat due to the sombre skies outside. This is where a bright shade can instantly make your space feel upbeat and energetic. For warm and comforting nooks in your house, go for a dark green colours for walls which radiate vibrancy. While nooks are great spaces to enjoy various activities, it can also be just a pretty customised corner in your house.
Unlock your aesthetic sense by incorporating wood pattern laminates to balance the natural impact and sophistication. Lastly, to make your nook cosier and warmer, layer your cabinet with a thick cloth and mini pinecone plants.
The reading shenanigans!
The only thing better than curling up with a good book is having a perfect spot to be cosy in. This space has to feel like you and to make that happen, think about the things that make you feel happy; bring these elements into your reading area. Start with placing a soft chair and plush throw pillow which is all you would require for seating arrangements. Ditch the bookshelves for ancient trunks or an ottoman to stack your novels.
You can also re-create a coffee bar on a stool with a coffee machine and your favourite mug. Now, speaking of walls, go for distressed veneers that are easy to maintain and highly durable. You can opt for this Distressed The Plus Oak Parquet from Decowood Veneers, which has a rich dark brown shade that will infuse cosy vibes in your space. Try to keep your white lighting dim to blend the colours well. A fur rug in beige or cream colour will further accentuate the entire set-up. Place some scented candles and you are ready to unwind with books amidst a peaceful abode!
Sleep, work, binge-watch, repeat!
