A warm atmosphere in its interior

A warm atmosphere in its interior

When winter approaches, we all want to transform our interior into a cozy and warm little cocoon! This makes winter evenings much more pleasant. Know that an interior is not only warm by its temperature, the visual aspect is very important. We are going to give you our best tips for creating that long-awaited winter atmosphere!

Focus on lighting

Lighting is not the first thing we think of when we talk about a warm atmosphere, however, it is essential. Please note that warm light is preferable in this case. If your lighting is too cold, all you need to do is change the bulbs. Don’t hesitate to add a few garlands to hang on the edge of the windows! Also think about accent lamps: on your coffee table, they replace the main lighting for a more subdued atmosphere.

Install candles

We agree, we are not all lucky enough to have a fireplace or a stove at home, real assets for creating a warm atmosphere in our home. In this case, candles are ideal. Scented or not, you can place them on a table, on a windowsill, or on a shelf! If you want scented candles, be careful to choose a delicate scent; too strong a scent could bother some people.

Adapt your furniture

Some rooms have a warmer look than others. Indeed, vintage furniture in particular is more capable of creating this atmosphere, while modern furniture generally appears much colder. You can buy vintage by bargain shopping at flea markets or by going to specialized stores. As for choosing your dining room table, choose a table with rounded corners over a square or rectangular table, it's much more user-friendly! Wood, in general, is the ideal material for creating a warm atmosphere: for a table, a sideboard or chairs, think about it!

Decorate your interior with small elements

Certain decorative elements contribute to a warm atmosphere, especially when it is personalized. For example, you can place frames with souvenir photos on a piece of furniture, or attach them to the wall. Photo frames invite conviviality! You can also decorate your interior with objects brought back from your travels. There is nothing better to personalize your decoration while remembering wonderful memories every day!

Bring in a little nature

Integrating a few natural elements into your interior is a simple way to make your interior warm. Of course, you can buy plants or bouquets of flowers, whether real, synthetic or dried. But you can also buy a macramé rug, wicker baskets, or even a bamboo pendant light for example, be inventive! You can even make objects using natural materials as you wish.

Play with textiles

The advantage with textiles is that there is a wide choice of materials and colors, and that you can easily change them when you become tired of your interior decoration. For example, have plenty of cushions and throws on your sofa! For a friendly atmosphere, choose poufs to install around your coffee table, or in a corner of the room. Finally, think about the curtains: once closed, in the evening, they have the advantage of creating a real protective cocoon!

Create a warm atmosphere from floor to ceiling!

The colors and materials chosen for the floor and walls play a vital role in creating your atmosphere. For the floor, the ideal would be to opt for a light wood floor: beige or off-white for example, to stay in the warm colors. Tiling which gives a cold appearance is not recommended. For the wall, dare to go with terracotta color or warm brown if you want to change from white!

Finally, a warm atmosphere is, in terms of colors, quite neutral. But nothing stops you from adding a few touches of color here and there, without overdoing it. This could be a few cushions, a rug or a frame for example! The most important thing is that you like it.
