Now that winter is at its peak, it’ll soon be spiraling down to spring. But that’s not reason to not enjoy some winter décor essentials while the season lasts. While the weather never allows for permanence, here are 5 winter design essentials that every Singaporean home absolutely needs:
1. Warm surfaces
It’s time to break out those lush shag rugs that usually collect dust during those long summer months. Their soft, cozy surfaces and plush fibers are not only a dream to put your feet on, but would also provide the perfect amount of insulation while imbuing a lot of character in your spaces. Best of all: you can choose the color, design, and pattern from a large variety!
2. Opaque blinds
The summer sun in Singapore is quite harsh, but the winter sun is a beloved accessory that would light up your homes in the most perfect manner. Opaque blinds or sheer curtains are an excellent way to let in that diffused light while keeping the smoggy air outside. You’ll love the sheer incandescence that this design element would bring to your spaces!
3. A warm accent wall
While an extensive paint job for every season is not the most reasonable design venture, you can still make some changes that pertain to the season. For example, repainting just the accent wall with a warm, welcoming color for winters is a must-do! As per color psychology, you’ll definitely feel warm just by looking at the color and letting your mind perceive its effect.
4. Break out the warm lights
Updating your light fixtures with moody warm-hued bulbs is a must-do winter season venture. You don’t have o reinvest in a whole new lighting plan – just switching on the warm accent lights that no one uses in summer can be enough. And if you’ve got a smart ceiling plan with intelligent light fixtures, you can reset them to a personalized winter-oriented setting.
5. Break out the terrace furniture
The winter sun might be rare, but once it peeks out, you’d better be ready to dapple in that honey-warm sunshine. This is why making your terraces ready with the right furniture is an absolute must during those peak winter days!
