Winter is the season to get yourself warm and cosy. Given we spend so much more time at home during these winter months, why not elevate your home's interior design and incorporate some rare antique prints? Antique prints can add a touch of history, uniqueness, cosiness and sophistication to any room. Let’s explore some of the top winter trends in interior design, with a focus on incorporating rare antique prints.

Warm Colour Schemes

Winter is a great time to embrace warm colour schemes into your interior design. Deep jewel tones, such as emerald green and sapphire blue, are popular choices for winter. These colours can complement rare antique prints beautifully, creating a cosy and inviting atmosphere. Consider incorporating warm neutrals, such as beige and taupe, to create a subtle and elegant background for your antique prints.

Rare Antique Prints as Statement Pieces

One way to make a bold statement in your home is by incorporating a rare antique print as a statement piece. A large, beautiful print can add drama and depth to a room, particularly if you have chosen some exquisite framing.. Hang it above a sofa or bed to create a focal point. When selecting an antique print, consider the colour scheme and style of the room to ensure that it complements the space. You can also use a rare antique print as a centrepiece on a gallery wall or a bookshelf display.

Mix and Match

Rare antique prints don't have to be limited to just one style or period. Mixing and matching prints from different eras can create a unique and eclectic look. Consider pairing an antique map print with a botanical print or a rare antique portrait with a beautiful landscape from eras gone by. When mixing and matching prints, look for common colours or themes to create a cohesive look. 

Gallery Walls

Gallery walls are a popular trend in interior design, and rare antique prints are a great way to add some personality to your collection. Mix and match prints in different sizes, styles and frames for an eclectic look. Consider using a rare antique print as the centrepiece of your gallery wall or incorporating several rare antique prints to create a vintage-inspired display.

Antique Maps  

Antique map prints are a popular choice for rare antique prints in interior design. They add a touch of history and geography to a room. Consider incorporating a rare antique map as a centrepiece in your living room or study. You can also use antique maps to create a theme in a room, such as a travel-inspired bedroom or a home office.

Rare antique prints are a great way to add some history, value and uniqueness to your winter interior design. Consider using them as statement pieces, mixing and matching them with other styles, incorporating them into gallery walls or bookshelf displays, and using antique maps to add some geography to your decor. By incorporating rare antique prints, you can create a space that is both stylish and timeless.
