Frosted Nature - bring the elegance of a winter wonderland into your home
The icy landscapes of the northern hemisphere - towering glaciers, frozen rivers and gently drifting snowflakes - evoke the most magical aspects of the colder weather. Our frosted nature trend helps you introduce crisp serenity into your home, incorporating the tactile and icy themes required to get it just right.
Whether you're home decorating, starting a craft project, looking for new bedding or more, frosted nature is about activating the senses through touch and soothing shapes. A curated selection of romanticised and nature-inspired prints, colours and fabrics will ensure you achieve the perfect 'cool' without compromising the comfort of your home.
In the bedroom
The bedroom is a place of rest and cosiness so, even when channeling our frosted nature trend, you need to off-set cooler tones with warmer ones.
Contrasting palettes also symbolise the tranquillity of Nordic panoramas. Soft blues reflect a powdery sky while enchanting greens capture the intensity of the northern lights, which are then complemented with warmer pink tones to add depth.
On the dining table
Stark white crockery, especially in matte finishes, recalls heavy snowfalls blanketed over mountains - but why not use frosted nature for a fancier, more unique effect, similar to a snowflake under a microscope?
To achieve this, set your table with beautiful, intricately patterned bowls, plates and platters. Consider the kinds of recurring shapes that billow out into icy mandalas, imitating the minutia of nature you can see in more glacial environments.
In the glassware
Glassware is central to the frosted nature trend, given it is intrinsically 'icy' in appearance and reflects light (and everything else around it) in enchanting ways. Of course, frosted glasses are the perfect choice, while fine-cut detailing helps further temper their reflection.
In the material things
Weaving warmth, comfort and joy (what the Danes call 'hygge') into the frosted nature trend is best accomplished with downy, opulent fabrics.
Just like your bed styling - by scattering pillows with whimsical foliage and floral patterns, embroidered designs and elegant materials like waffle cotton across your home - you can soften any hard lines and ensure your winter wonderland is a welcome sanctuary no matter what the weather is outside.
On the walls
When decorating your walls in the frosted nature trend, put on your rose-tinted glasses and choose subtle, impressionistic vistas like those painted by Monet or Renoir.
Your wall art prints should glow with diffused, radiating light and, if you'd prefer a solid colour over a scene, go for pastels or neutral ones that have been delicately textured - like wind drifts or the patterns made from dragging a bobsled through the snow.
In the little details
Adorn side tables and stands with elegantly shaped vases, urns and containers that are contemporary in style but also eternal in their simplicity and functionality. Use them to take your living room styling up a notch.
In the greenery
In its seasonally frosted state, nature is notable for continued resilience and regeneration. That's why greenery is the final element of any frosted nature trend design - to give life to the icy blues and cool whites, and help elevate any sunset blushes.
Choose plants of different sizes, leaf shapes and species. Find planters that not only meet your frosted nature palette but supplement the plant itself. Whether placing your plants on windowsills or flush to the floor or raised on planter stands, you can create a better 'plantscape' by positioning them on varying vertical and horizontal planes - your own frosted nature forest!
