Early in the morning, the alarm goes off. Time to get up; even if it is still dark and peacefully quiet outside. Warmth, along with light, seems to delay its presence. Time to fire up the hearth. Slowly, warmth starts filling the house. An invigorating shower wakes the body. Then, a warm jumper is put on while coffee is simmering in the kitchen. It is the start of a new winter's day.
Even though spring is often seen as the best season for redecorating the house, there are many reason why winter could be selected for this moment too. January is the start of a new year, which means that it is the perfect time to look at the interior of your house with a new perspective.
The winter days just after the holidays are usually associated with melancholy and darkness. This makes it a good time to have a look at new lighting. Light provides warmth, illumination and clarity. Since lights have to be turned on earlier in winter, they stand out much more. An especially striking lamp is the Louis Poulsen chandelier with the appropriate name ‘Snowball’; a true eye-catcher.
Decorative items in light and bright colours, such as white, grey, blue and pastels, give the house’s interior a neutral look: perfect for a fresh start. The glass bowl Heaven has an ice-blue colour which is reminiscent of the sky on a misty, winter morning. But what if it is time for a bigger change? The subtle shapes and soft colours of wallpaper Lily gives the room a cheerful atmosphere that adds a slight touch of spring.
Natural colours also make for a warm and clear atmosphere. The Nestor sofa makes it exceptionally wonderful to relax with a great book and a nice cup of tea.
