1. Seasonal style decoration

Speaking of autumn-winter, the thought of warm shades comes naturally to our minds. In addition, this season has one of the brightest colour palettes for home decoration. It is well-known that earthy colours such as cinnamon, caramel and terracotta are very delightful tones. Shades like golden yellow and golden brown are inspired by nature adding even more texture hues from the earth's natural atmosphere and instantly give a warmer feel to any interior.

Thus, a décor with such color accents and rich textures on fabrics, gives you the urge to coat your home with more warmth, to be maintained throughout the winter. The best way to accomplish this is to combine duvet covers, throws, decorative pillows and quilts. Creating layers, adding coatings and accessories on one another to increase their volume, resulting to a greater emphasis to the space with warmth in a maximalist style.
