A winter's dream: Interior design trends for winter 2012-2013

The cold season is here, so it's time to make our home warm and comfortable. The interior designers show us the trends for this winter.

1. Use neutral colours and white in combination with accent colours

You don't have to worry if you see furniture only in neutral colours or white. It's ok, because you have to put some accent colours on it. For example, take a white sofa and put a lot of colourful pillows on it.

2. Natural table decorations

Nature inspires the designers this winter, so use it on your table! Take some pine cones, some pine branches, some pieces of wood and put them on the table.

3. LED lighting

LED lighting is the most important this winter. Designer prefer the LEDs because they last very long and they are energy efficient. Even more, the LED offers a much warmer light.

4. Vintage

Vintage is a big trend right now, so don't hesitate to use vintage furniture and decorations in your house. You can use tables, chairs or lamps with that old, a bit rustic and elegant look.

5. Abstract fabrics

The fabrics have abstract geometrical patterns, in bold colours.

But, if you don't want to consider the trends and just want to have a winter home, you can do this:

- use neutral colours, a lot of white and blue
- use thick and fluffy fabrics, like wool or fake fur
- use fabrics with winter prints, like snowflakes, snowmen, ice skates, christmas trees
- use silver or transparent-white decorations, for the ice effect
- don't forget to use a lot of pillows, blankets and fluffy carpets
