The very moment I type this words on my MacBook, it’s snowing outside. It is the first snow of the year here in Munich downtown and I am a bit excited. The first snow coincides with today’s opening of all Christmas markets around town so I can surely say: Winter has arrived and Munich is getting festive! With the first snowflakes I am getting into a sort of hibernation mood. Layering various textiles, taking that extra blanket for your bed, adding a few more cushions to the sofa, adding muted colours to the scheme – the more frosty it gets outside, the cozier it gets inside!
When I spotted this bedroom on Pinterest, I felt like it perfectly conveys that winter cosiness I have mind. It caught my eye instantly and I could happily jump into the bed, snuggle up with a cup of tea and a good book and forget about time, weekday, to-dos or the cold winter day outside.
What exactly caught my eye? Here are interior styling eye-catchers:
- Grey Symphony: I have a soft spot for grey hues. I think grey is a fabulous, calming backdrop for a cosy feeling at home. Whether it’s just one feature wall, the entire room or a combination of wall, home textiles, home décor – the effect is cosy yet sophisticated. Just like in this bedroom.
- Muted Colours: The use of muted colours in this room perfectly blend in with the grey backdrop. The soft shades of green, purple and brown give the room a rooted, earthy base as opposed to the elusive lightness of grey.
- Ethnic Elements: Another soft spot of mine – everything with ethnic patterns catches my eye immediately. The kilim rug and cushion tie the whole interior styling impeccably together.
