Neutral & Inviting Winter Wonderland

Posted November 5, 2015 by Bethanie Lunn

My husband and I have been saving like mad for our own house and are almost there but it has been a long, stressful and high pressure experience so far!  One of my favourite things to do to handle the stress, visualise better times in our new home and quite frankly, because I love to shop interior anytime, is to pull together ideas of my fantasy interior spaces.

There is a huge trend for shades of truffle, mink and greys, uplifted with tones of copper, dusky pink and white.  I’m totally in love with this colour palette and have pulled together some ideas to tempt me and inspire you.

In all these shots, lighting is key.  From candlelit votives and lanterns to glittering chandeliers, these images provide ideas on how lighting can be used to create atmosphere and mood, and even to compliment and showcase your home accessories.  I couldn’t help but include a Christmassy shot complete with roaring fire – it’s not long now!  The entire mood creates a neutral winter woodland, brimming with calm and cosiness.  Do you love it too?
