Winter interior trends

Buying your new home from a luxury property development in the winter months is great for many reasons, including having your own space to decorate in the festive season. You’ll be spending a lot of time inside escaping the cold and enjoying your new luxurious space, so you’ll want the interior to be exactly how you envisioned.

Granville Developments are property developers that build luxury homes in Essex. They have noted a few trends emerging that have been extremely popular with customers so far this winter season.

Soft furnishing

There’s nothing better in the winter than curling up on the sofa with a fluffy blanket. Of course, this is great for keeping warm but it’s also great for the design of your home. Soft furnishings such as faux fur cushions, knitted blankets and velvet curtains are a popular way to diversify textures in your new house. Using layers of cosy comforts in your living room and bedroom will help to ensure the decor works all year round, as you can simply remove extra blankets or rugs in the warmer months.

A splash of colour

After the walls have settled in your new build the best way to personalise them this winter is with a splash of paint. A lot of customers have been opting for warm and deeper tones such as plum or royal blue. This will look great against the glitter and shine of decorations during this time of year. Speaking of sparkle, brass, gold and silver tones have proven extremely popular this time of the year to help add dimension into your decor. Matching gold or silver hardware in your rooms will help to bring everything together.


During the winter there is a lot of chaos and things can get quite busy, especially when moving into a new house whilst juggling Christmas and New Year too. The best way to de-stress and keep the disorder outside, is by making sure your interiors are simple and as clean as possible. A lot of customers have avoided clutter when moving in, which adds to the spacious feel of Granville’s luxurious homes.
