Homebuilding & Renovating - - THE BRIEF -

One of the key con­sid­er­a­tions when cre­at­ing a warm in­te­rior scheme is the use of nat­u­ral ma­te­ri­als. Us­ing wood floor­ing in an or­ganic fin­ish such as nat­u­ral oak is a great way to add a sense of warmth to the scheme, es­pe­cially when paired with neu­tral off-white paint­work that ac­cen­tu­ates the nat­u­ral light en­ter­ing the room. Avoid ice white and blue colour pal­ettes, in­stead opt for soft neu­trals and hues with un­der­tones of red. Fab­rics and fur­ni­ture also play a big role in bring­ing a scheme to­gether, with cosy rugs and tac­tile vel­vets es­tab­lish­ing a strong sense of com­fort of­ten as­so­ci­ated with warmth, and an­tique fur­ni­ture pieces in­tro­duc­ing a lived-in qual­ity and unique sense of per­son­al­ity that trans­forms the space.
