Whenever homeowners want to imbue a sense of warmth and comfort in their homes, they usually go with wooden textures. Though it may be effective, it can be challenging to use large amounts of wood in an interior design style that has a completely opposite kind of an aesthetic. So today, we’ve compiled a list of some great alternative ideas that you can use to make your homes look warm and stylish.
1. Work on that color scheme
Colors are one of the most effective canvas for you to evoke warmth and stylishness in your interior designs. You must figure out a balanced color palate with the right amount of cool and warm colors to get your point across. Take this living room for example – it features the best combination of cool and warm colors blended artfully in the same space.
2. Pay homage to textures
Textures are another great option to add a stylishly warm aura to your interior designs. However, you need to be especially cognizant of how you use these textures because a lot of them used in the same space can create unpleasant visual clutter.
3. The smallest bits of wood
You can use just the smallest amount of wood in the form of backdrop furniture to complement all the other warm accouterments you’ve used in your space. The stylish media console in this image is an excellent example of this technique. The understated herringbone pattern incorporated in the dark wooden texture have just the right amount of charisma and personality.
4. Plush furniture
As always, furniture plays a huge part in how you can incorporate warmth in your interior designs. If you want to do so, you must stay away from the sleek modern furnishings that are extremely minimal in design. Instead, go for plush, transitional style furniture with warm hued upholstery and embroidered throw pillows to get the best effect possible.
5. Ode to accessories
If you want to be subtle and understated about incorporating warmth in your interior designs, try to go for suitable accessories. It can be a unique lamp, flower vases, photo frames, artwork or even a distinct trinket or two – or even a nice combination of them all.
