When styling your home, creating the atmosphere you and your family prefer is one of the most important aspects. If you have a designer taking on the reins, make sure to discuss with them the type of atmosphere you feel comfortable with in your home so that they can work out a design to suit the preference - be it a warm or a cool space.
In this post, we are touching briefly on how to achieve a warm, inviting space.
Warm spaces are known to;
encourage mental and physical activites
encourage a sense of security and excitement
Use of warm, dark or bright colour schemes
You can achieve the warm atmosphere by choosing warm colour palettes for your interior - be it in a darker or brighter tone.
Using lights that could be dimmed or softened
Using lights that generates a pool of light focusing on a specific spot can provide a warm feeling to any space.
Sense of containment
Styling the space with a sense of containment achieves the warm cosy feeling in a space.
When objects are revealed, even when they are stored such as,
hats on a hat rack
bags on wall pegs
shoes on open cabinets
books on open shelves
open shelf kitchens
glass fronted cabinets
Using cosy, tactile finishes and textures give that homey vibe.
Using natural materials such as rattan in furniture and accessories, add a warmth to a given space.
You can use these guidelines to create a warm inviting space in your home yourself - but if you ever need help, we are just within reach, always!
