Winter is upon us, and whether you love or hate the season, there are plenty of good things about it. Crisp weather, hot chocolate, comfort foods, and coziness are all great things about winter. Another great one is the aesthetic of winter.
Winter has a distinct look, and there are plenty of ways to complement it in your home. These tips are also helpful if you’re selling your home. After you’ve spent time finding a real estate agent you like, they’ll be able to provide specific advice about how to make your home stand out. But if you’re just looking to capture and compliment the feeling of winter, follow these tips.
Make it Cozy
Winter is a time for feeling warm and wrapping up on the couch in a blanket, so make your house cozy this winter with a few throws and pillows that will make your home feel warm and comfortable. You can choose them in soft winter whites or use these as an opportunity to bring more color into your home as well by adding a bright red throw or pillow for a splash of color and brightness. Cozy blankets and throw pillows are the perfect way to get that winter home decor feel you are looking for.
Whether there’s a fresh blanket of snow or it’s a gray and drab day, nothing complements a winter day like greenery. The trees outdoors might be bare, but inside, your home will come alive with greenery. These will add color and can also help with mood during winter.
You can use small touches like a simple green wreath on your door or liven up an entire room with some greenery, like lush green garland or an arrangement of winterberries and evergreen branches for that holiday kind of feel that’s perfectly appropriate to last throughout the winter.
Scents play a huge role in winter ambiance. Add a basket filled with chestnuts or pinecones or potpourri that smells like needles or evergreen to bring in a cozy winter vibe. Scented candles, as we’ll get into below, can also bring warmth while providing a winter scent.
Soft lighting makes a room feel cozy, and bright and twinkle lights are a great way to transition from holiday to winter décor while still retaining a magical ambiance. You can string them up or fill some vases with battery-operated lights.
Candles also provide a winter-themed look while adding warmth and ambiance to the room. White candles match the mood of the season, but you can also use light blue for a more wintery look. Candles are a must for winter home decor.
Add a Rug
Cold feet are a constant problem in the winter, so add a few soft, shaggy rugs to not only make the space feel warmer aesthetically but also provide more insulation. Just as with throws and pillows, you can use this as an opportunity to give a pop of color or keep things neutral with winter white.
Implement some of these simple tips to bring warmth to your home with your winter décor while complementing the beauty of the season at the same time.
