Cozy Up Your Space With Winter Decorations for the Home
Color Schemes for Winter Decor
Decorating for a particular season might seem limited. Traditionally, winter decor, especially Christmas decorations, boasts bright reds and greens. If that’s your jam, go for it! However, there are other, more modern ways to spice up your winter decor that incorporate neutral colors and natural elements.
For example, when choosing string lights, opt for some warm whites. You can easily affix these types of lights to the insides of your windows or string them atop the mantle with some garland. No matter where you put them, you’ll enjoy their relaxing glow.
Another way to incorporate natural elements into your winter decor is with faux fur. There’s a lot of faux fur options on the market from throw pillows to area rugs. Our personal favorite is the faux fur throw blanket! These blankets come in dark fur colors to maintain a rustic feel or in white for a modern look. They’re also perfect for snuggling up on the couch with a cup of hot chocolate!
How to Make Christmas Decorations Tasteful
A lot of traditional Christmas decorations simply don’t fit into the winter decoration trends of late. However, it’s possible to preserve tradition and keep up with popular styles. You know those white lights we discussed earlier? String those around your tree and adorn the bare spots with silver and gold ornaments for an elegant look that’s easy on the eyes. It gets cold here in the winter, so bring the outdoors to your common spaces by opting for fresh garland and displaying pine cones in large vases. One of our favorite ideas for winter decorations for the kitchen is to take all of your common baking supplies and pour them into mason jars! This way, you can display things like flour, sugar, and chocolate chips in a tasteful way. The easy access doesn’t hurt, either.
