Coziest Winter Decorating
Incorporate winter decor as temperatures outside rain to bring some warmth back into your home. Use our winter decorating ideas to learn the best ways to cozy up during the holiday season.
As temperatures lower, bring your focus to rearranging your furniture. If you have a fireplace, pull pieces in toward the center of the room and face them near the hearth to create a cozy gathering spot for winter entertaining.
Plush fabrics and upholstery add decorative display. Collect a display of crisp glassware to bring a hint of winter white style into your home.
Bright white dishware stands out against a black-painted hutch. The sparkle of freshly fallen snow, while a fresh houseplant adds life.
Although wood floors create a sophisticated style statement year-round, you’ll need to cozy them up for the cold winter months. A fluffy area rug sets off this living room’s main seating area and adds warmth and texture underfoot. For a unique style statement, layer one rug on top of another to add more visual interest.
Layer in a few extra throw pillows for a quick winter style update. Playful patterns stand out against dark wood flooring and a lush velvet sofa in this cozy living room. Choose accent pillows in colors and patterns that match your existing decor to ensure you don’t have to make any more decor adjustments. A cozy throw completes the look.
Warm Up Windows
Draperies add volume and color in this pretty breakfast nook. Replace the thick curtains with sheer draperies during warmer months, or simply remove the extra treatments altogether until temperatures plunge again.
Cozy Reading Nook
A window seat offers the perfect perch for everything from an afternoon nap to a day spent lost in a good book. Keep your window seats cozy by bulking them up with fluffy seat cushions and pillows. If space permits, use under-seat storage to house blankets and other winter decorations for the season.
Scents of the Season
Although decor and accessories can go a long way toward cozying up your home, it’s important to fill it with the smells of the season, too. A fragrant bowl of potpourri—in a wintry scent such as cinnamon, pine needles, or evergreen—can do the trick and will fill your home with seasonal cheer. Display the arrangement prominently on a mantel or as a casual winter table centerpiece.
