License to Chill

Happiness is that first December morning when you wake up to a blanket of snow covering the ground. Screams of joy echo through the house: “School is closed!” Grab the mittens, boots and all the makings for the best snowman ever. It is WINTER!

Where will this season take you? Will winter bring you inside to the warmth of a cozy cabin with a warm, glowing fire, or will it take you outside to find adventure on snow-covered trails? Whichever path you choose, rejoice in the change in seasons.

As the seasons change, the lighting around us shifts, providing fresh perspectives of the spaces we occupy. The colors around us also shift from summer’s bright, emerald green lawns to winter’s blue grey skies—prompting a change in mood, clothes and even a time to refresh our interior surroundings.

By nature people are drawn to the outdoors and the changes it offers throughout the year. Think of visiting a hotel property that has transformed from winter to summer, allowing returning guests a fresh perspective with different seasonal visits. Likewise, the modularity of certain products makes it easy to change our interiors to reflect the seasons. Cotton coverlets give way to faux fur throws, bright, floral pillows are exchanged for ones with rich, textural patterns—even area rugs can be changed to create complementary moods.

Interface Hospitality makes it easy to achieve a seasonal shift in your space with our modular carpet products. Accent rugs are a simple, cost effective way to refresh your interior’s seasonal mood. All components are easy to store and install, allowing rugs to be switched out in a matter of minutes.

Below is the latest winter palette from Interface Hospitality. It includes a variety of textural products that borrow forms found in nature. Whether you’re looking for a snow covered pebble path, sea foam hitting a shoreline or interwoven tree branches, this palette offers a cool winter retreat.
