There are many reasons why we like, and dislike, the winter.
Winter is the season of get-togethers, hopes, and warmth. But at the same time, it’s also the season of freezing evening air and frosted morning window panes.
Fortunately, there are several ways to make the coldest months less cold while keeping your festive spirit high.
From home decor to indoor plants to extra softness underfoot, here are six great ways to make your home cozy for winter.
Bring In Cozy Textiles
One of the easiest ways to make your home feel warm is with throws made of soft fabrics like cotton or cashmere. Throw stylish blankets and quilts all over the house so that you and your guests quickly feel super comfy. Also, swap in some fluffy wool throw pillows. Add warmth and hints of color to your wood or tile flooring with rugs. Layering rugs is not only a stylish trend, but it is also a great way to increase the warmth and depth of your space, especially in winter.
Add Warmth And Glow
Fire seems an obvious way to warm up your home, but not all spaces can have a real fireplace. Here’s a beautiful alternative! A stylish candle or two on the table is a great way to cozy up and brighten up your living room without actually getting hotter. Soft lighting can also add warmth to your living room while making it more inviting. Plus, it will make your home ready for Christmas! Subtle ceiling lights or string lights make your space feel cozy and welcoming.
Add Some Earth Tones To Your Palette
Earth tones come from a color palette of warm grays, browns, and greens. These colors are muted and flat in emulation of the natural tones found in rocks, trees, dirt, and moss. Get inspired by seasonal transitions by combining cool and warm earth tones to create your personalized color story. Other choices include terracotta, sienna, beiges, and nudes also!
Decorate With Wall Art
Thrill and warm up your walls with stunning wall art that keeps you cozy during cold months. You can choose a large wall art to freshen up your space instantly. Choose an artwork of elements that give a sense of warmth simply by looking at them. For example, having a Northern Lights Campfire multi panel canvas wall art will lend your space a warm and inviting feel.
Embrace Silver And Gold Touches
Metallic hues, especially silver and gold, help you create a warm space in winter and get you into the perfect holiday spirit. Pair silver with royal blue and gold with black to lend some royal touches to your space. Blush and gold form an unmatched combination for master bedrooms, while silver gray is always on trend for winter.
Create A Forest Setting
If you are a nature lover and want to bring the outdoor vibes indoors, then get plants inside your home. Making a forest setting for your home is easy! Just collect some colorful acorns, pine branches, indoor plants, and leaves. These are some signs of winter that also indicate that the holiday season is on its way! You can also add nature-inspired wall art to lend a perfect forest setting to your space.
Make your home both stylish and winter-appropriate with these ideas!
