While each of the seasons brings its own unique beauty to the outdoors, winter is tough to beat. From snowfall and snowmen to holiday lights and decorations, winter seems to be a decoration in and of itself.
And yet, we spend most of the winter season indoors. The temperature drops. We get snowed in. So how can you make your indoor living space just as beautifully decorated as the outdoors? Here are a few of Eva Marie Berry’s winter home decor ideas that you can incorporate into your space to enjoy the season without the cold.
Decorative Blankets and Throws
Blankets can serve a double purpose in the winter months. Not only can they keep you warm when it’s cold outside, but they can also serve as home decor!
Try picking up decorative blankets or throws to utilize as decor pieces by folding them and displaying them on your couch or the backs of chairs. Whether it includes a fun pattern or a pop of color, the possibilities are endless — and you can curl up with it at the end of the day, too!
Pine Cone DIY Decor
Pine cones are a classic winter decoration that can easily be DIYed into something more unique than what you’d find at stores.
String some pine cones together and hang them above your headboard or lace them around your windows for a festive touch. You can also use pine cones to create homemade wreaths, which you can hang on your front door to greet guests.
Plus, scented pine cones smell amazing!
When you’re spending the winter months indoors, your view out the window can be quite one-note — with snow covering the ground, it’s hard to see any color besides white out there. What better way to bring some life to your home than with greenery?
There are countless classic plants you can decorate with in the winter, like mistletoe, but artificial greenery is more popular now than ever before. That’s right — fake plants can bring life to your decor, and you don’t have to worry about keeping them alive!
Dried Citrus DIY Decor
If you miss making homemade ornaments as a kid, dried citrus ornaments are a great way to get back into that creative mindset while maintaining a mature, trendy style.
Slice up citrus fruits of your choice, such as lemons, limes, and oranges. Once dried, these citrus slices can be hung from your Christmas tree or strung like garland along your staircase. Adding natural elements to your home decor can bring a more rustic look to your space.
Plaid and Tartan
If there’s a pattern that represents winter more than any other, it’s plaid and tartan — particularly featuring a mixture of reds and greens. Whether you’re featuring plaid and tartan in the form of decorative ribbons or tablecloths, it immediately adds to a winter aesthetic.
Plaid and tartan napkins add a decorative touch to your dining room table, while plaid and tartan pillows can incorporate a pop of pattern into your living room or bedroom decor.
Keep Indoors Cozy With Winter Decor
The best way to stay cozy in the wintertime? Update your home’s winter decor. From decorative blankets to simple DIY decor using natural elements, it’s easy to make sure the inside of your house is just as beautiful as the snowy weather outside.
