It’s often the little things that can make a big difference. Guido Maria Kretschmer tells you which pieces will make your home even more homely.

Are you still missing that little something? Decor items give you the chance to reinvent your home more often. Exchanging bowls, candles or vases can create a completely different atmosphere in your four walls. In an interview, Guido Maria Kretschmer revealed his decoration highlights of the season:

“Grasses are experiencing a huge renaissance.”

The pampas grass currently finds a place on almost every dresser or table. And for a good reason too! Because it is dried, it has an extremely long shelf life and can be combined with other shrubs again and again. Guido knows:

“Pampas grass is the unsung star of the facility right now.”

His Favorite combo consists of a grass in natural tones and a striking colorful vase. If the dried plant is too simple for you, add a few poppy seed pods dyed in rich red tones. In this color nuance they look very noble.

Flowery and timeless

For all flower fans, Guido Maria Kretschmer recommends combining a stable branch with individual fresh flowers. Birch trees in particular are eye-catchers with their special bark structure. They come into their own in vases that look like they have been made by hand. The vessel looks particularly charming with modern and minimalist tablecloths. And what do we pay most attention to there? This season Guido attaches particular importance to qualitative and special pieces, he prefers “ceramics that look like handwork”.

A loop wreath to hang up or on the dining table rounds off the winter decoration and is a great DIY project for free time. Oats and lagurus, also known as velvet grass, make a good base that can be enhanced with lavender and dried roses. So let’s go, dear decoration queens!
