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.
