We can already feel Winter approaching with all its cold and grey colors – and all you want is to snuggle under a blanket, a cup of tea on our hands and watch loads of TV. Inspire yourself in our Winter interior design suggestions and embrace this new season with style!
Silvered branches, wisps of wood smoke and a frosty window pane… this year’s ‘“neutrals” come in the form of a palette of winter-morning greys from pale “wood-ash” to the smoky “dash of soot”.
If you prefer a richer colour scheme for Winter look out for midnight blue, indigo and ink colours.
Knitted accessories are getting bolder, with huge chunky cable-knits replacing demure weaves. And you’ll be needing a pouffe, too – the best interpretation of this trend: essentially a big knitted ball of wool for your feet.
There’s a definite air of indulgence about this season’s throws, rugs and cushions; plush, strokable textures seem to be as important as warmth. Ugg, maker of the snuggly boots, has launched a collection of blankets, sheepskin rugs, and floor pillows.
Touches of traditional tartan look well in both a town house and country house setting.
It doesn’t take much to make a feature of the hearth, and if fuel bills continue to soar we’re going to be looking at it a lot more, specially with a very attractive fireguard.
With all this softness, it’s a good idea to incorporate some textured materials to interest the eye. Loaf’s weathered birch rocker (pictured) has a handwoven rattan seat and backrest, and looks great by the fire.
Demand for screens is increasing, as they allow visual separation of open-plan rooms.

Home Design Ideas: as the bright shades of summer fade, it’s time to embody the earthy vibe predicted by the Fall/Winter Fashion Weeks with a vintage blend of earthy neutrals and bolder statements. The scene is an eclectic mix of the 70s and 80s with bolder pops of color like amethyst orchid and cadmium orange, complimenting dusty neutrals like dried herb and stormy weather.
KOKET channeled this effortlessly sophisticated color palette and pattern trends to bring new additions and colors to the luscious pieces of the Guilty Pleasures collection. Some exemples are the fabulous Mimi chair our our audacious Collette sofa.
The flirty girl-next-door took a page from Fall’s fashion look book and shed her vibrant fuchsia pink upholstery fabric for a softer Desert Sage green. Mimi’s attractive body design still boasts modern curves, accented by long, sexy brass legs. A KOKET client favorite, the Colette sofa steps out for fall in a striking yellow upholstery fabric for a glimpse of 80s redux.
Nothing captures better earthy tones than real, natural feathers effortlessly blending hues of rich blues and greens, natural tans and beiges dappled with hints of chocolate brown and black, and deep purple swirled with navy. KOKET’s feather collection features thirteen lavish patterns of natural peacock, quail and pheasant feathers combined in various mesmerizing patterns of flowing waves, natural stripes and diamond crisscross.
Daring design aesthetic, high impact shows, lavish presentations and the notoriously risqué ad campaigns, have an uncanny way of conveying KOKET’s mission which is to create highly desirable empwering statement pieces.
