Beyond Santa and Snowmen: Gorgeous Winter Decor
While classic red and green exclaims "wintertime" for the whole world to see, there are other ways to show off your style for the season. Santa Claus and Snowmen are classic and popular icons of winter decor, but those interested in a modern holiday style without reverting to the corny and overdone may want to look elsewhere. Read on for some tips and design ideas for classy winter decor.
While the cold outside may make the world feel stark, there are plenty of ways to make white feel cozy. Consider a display of glass or ceramic items in your living space, especially with accents of silver; it'll feel just like freshly fallen snow. Metallic sheens in throw pillows will offer a similar sparkle.
On the other hand, a great way to banish any bad winter moods is to choose bright, spring-like colors. Bright blues and pinks offer a lovely way to set the mood and remind yourself of the warm weather to come. Similarly, incorporating citrusy cents with candles or potpourri or adding dried seasonal fruits to a holiday wreath will add a lovely touch of freshness to an otherwise dreary season.
Lovely Winter Decor Layers
As with winter fashion, winter decor can incorporate numerous layers of fabrics. Consider covering your dining room chairs with simple slipcovers in soft winter white to add warmth and style, especially in a neutral dining room. The bonus of adding new textures is that after winter is done, you can easily have the space represent warmer seasons later on.
If your home has a wood floor, it may be time to consider adding a fluffy throw or area rug to at least the living room, where you'll appreciate the texture and warmth. As with fabrics, layering rugs of various textures and colors can make a space feel even warmer.
a variety of throw pillows on your sofas is a great way to change up your home's style without making any radical decorating decisions. Consider soft and silky faux fur textured in keeping with the classy wintertime theme, such as a mink faux fur in black and white from Pillow Decor.
Whatever your winter style, there are decor options for you. Whether you want to reflect the sparkle of snow, show the holiday spirit, or make your home feel bright and colorful, throw pillows offer plenty of warm and wonderful ways to do so.
