As we settle down for the festive period we want to show you how to incorporate a little Christmas magic into your home all year round with a Winter Whitewash theme. Cool and calming interiors reflect this trend and can be easily introduced into your home without a hint of tinsel in sight!
When thinking of winter wonderlands imagine a simple neutral colour palette paired with luxuriously cosy accessories.
Our Chalked Pine in Stripwood laying pattern with an Offset Stripe Border combines milky shades with a subtle textured appearance, which go perfectly with contemporary furniture for a truly Scandinavian vibe. The cool tones of Chalked Pine are great when teamed with soft white interiors and a neutral colour scheme and, as white is one of the most classic colours, it’s perfect all year round.
If you prefer to add a Scandinavian feel to your room set then The Whitewash from our Designers’ Choice range is the one for you. The simple and sophisticated White Wash Wood creates beautiful white hues that are a perfect match for the precise, angular lines of this design. Mirroring the style of a snuggly wood cabin, this floor will look fabulous paired with faux fur throws and cushions helping to recreate your very own Swiss log cabin.
A winter whitewash style is not limited to your living room. The Contrast is a great combination of stone and abstract flooring. You can easily introduce this trend into your kitchen, bathroom or hallway. It’s a timeless classic design, with the simple beauty of a natural stone interrupted by the dash of a black abstract. The cool tones of the Composite Calcium and the dark Graphite Slate gives this design a monochrome twist.
One way to make a space truly unique is by adding a decorative border into your design. We love how the Composite Calcium in Random Stone laying pattern works beautifully with the Ellipse Grand border. The speckled grey of the border mirrors the intricate design of wintry snowflakes, adding to the contemporary feel of the design. When teamed with cool shades of bare wood and neutral grey you can create a real stripped back and natural style. When dressed with faux hide rugs and fluffy pillows you can create a beautiful winter hideaway that even the Snow Queen would be envious of.
There is a whole host of different ways to incorporate a winter whitewash theme into your home. You don’t have to worry about these interior style ideas just looking great at Christmas because the versatility of Amtico flooring means that it looks great styled in a variety of different ways throughout the year.
