Warm Winter Colour Palettes

Winter Colour Palettes

Some winter 2017 colour inspiration

I have put together a few Winter Colour Palettes to inspire and give you ideas on how to decorate your home this winter.  These are few of the colours predicted for 2017 and of course the classic winter warmers.

Gem Tones


Gem tones are definitely very popular this year especially in winter. Don’t just think beige and brown; add beautiful cranberry purples, navy and deep midnight blues and rich burgundies. Also don’t be afraid to add a bit of green to your home, whether if it is in the form of a few plants or scatter cushions. Blue is always in style, from navy to denim to indigo. This is a dramatic colour scheme but if you don’t want to go too intense, mix it up with neutrals.

Think Light


Winter does not have to be dark and dreary and light colours don’t just belong in spring. If you are like me and love light and soft colours you can still work them into your winter palette. Blush pinks and powder blues are beautiful all year round. Think dusty lilacs, mint greens and soft, smoky blues. Copper is also a great choice in winter, this ads dimension, interest and it also bounces light around the room. Mix this pastel palette with white, grey and other neutrals


Inspired by Nature


Of course the always popular autumn and winter colours are soft browns and warm oranges and burnt reds. Why not add some terracotta tiles or pots to give texture and a warm amber orange colour. Chocolate brown throws and blankets will make you want to cuddle up and stay inside. Teal is also a very rich and lavish colour, it always looks amazing on a feature wall.


Warm up


A beautiful colour that always grows in popularity is taupe. Warm and comforting, it is a versatile neutral that works well on interior walls, furniture and accessories. We just love the hazy cream, smoky brown and warm gray tones. These are all approachable and easy to work with colours that brings a cozy feel to any space. When using these colours on your walls make sure the room has plenty of light otherwise it can appear darker or grayer than expected.


I hope you have enjoyed our winter colour palettes and feel warm and inspired for winter. If you want to know how to make your home super cosy and winter ready, take a look at our post about Hygge: 15 Ways to make your home cosy this winter.
