When the mercury starts dropping, people tend to spend even more time indoors. Short days and near-zero temperatures encourage us to spend even more time inside.
Whether you’ll be entertaining or cosying up by the fire, these winter home décor ideas will bring warmth to your home. They’ll help you stave off chilly winter weather and stay toasty all winter long.
Home is Where the Hearth is
There’s nothing quite like a crackling fireplace to warm up during wintry weather. If you have a hearth in your home, make it the focal point of your winter home decorating.
Rearrange chairs and sofas, turning them towards the centre of the room. This helps create a cosy space for gatherings or even quiet nights with a good book. Pillows, plush fabrics, and other accents can add to the warm vibes, even when the fire’s gone out.
If you don’t use your fireplace during the winter months, set a crate of logs and mixed greenery in front of the hearth.
Incorporate Colour into Your Winter Home Décor
The winter palette is full of rich hues like navies, burgundies, and deep greens. Whites and greys also feature. When it comes to winter decorating ideas, why not throw in a splash of vibrant colour to spruce up your home?
Bright colours like oranges and yellows are summery, but they can chase the winter blues away.
Upcycle Some of Your Old Jumpers
As winter approaches, you’ve likely started unpacking your winter wardrobe once more. If you’ve discovered some old jumpers that have worn out, upcycle them in a DIY winter decor project.
Dress up candle holders large and small with their own cosy cardigans. If you prefer, turn worn-out pullovers into pillows for your chairs and sofas.
Silver and White Add Whimsy
Word art is on trend at the moment. A few signs with seasonal greetings can tie together your winter home decoration. You can DIY or buy some handcrafted signs in silver and white tones.
Another clever trick is to stencil letters onto a mirrored surface. Paint over the rest of the mirror to create silvery lettering for your favourite saying.
Another way to incorporate these wintry hues into your décor is to display white dishes on tabletops and in cabinets.
Spruce up with Greenery and Pine
Whether it’s a wreath, garland, or fresh boughs on the mantle, greenery brings a dose of the outdoors inside. The splash of colour and the fresh scent of pine can energize you even when you’re cooped up during a long winter night.
