There are many homeowners who like to change the décor and decorate their home according to the different seasons. When it comes to winter decorating, there are many creative ideas you can try. Although many people use the wintertime to decorate for the holidays, there are plenty of other ways you can simply decorate for the winter season. Following are some great tips for winter decorating in your home.
Decorate Your Home in Winter White
As wintertime approaches, you can turn your home into a white winter wonderland by bringing out your white décor items. Since winter days and nights tend to be dark and dreary, white décor items can also work to add some much needed light to your home. Especially in winter, white also reminds of beautiful snowfalls. Some easy ways to add more white to your winter décor include white tablecloths, white candles, and white throws slung over chairs and couches.
Hang a Winter Wreath in Your Home
Wreaths are not just for Christmas and actually make a great winter decoration that you can display from December to March. Consider making your own greenery wreath. Another option is to buy a pre-made one that matches the style of your home. Find items associated with winter to decorate the wreath with, such as pinecones, white or flannel ribbon, and silver charms. The wreath can then be hung on the wall. Do be sure that the wreath and the wall are comparable in size. You don’t want a tiny wreath hung on a huge wall that has a great deal of blank space, nor do you want a huge wreath on a tiny wall.
Change Your Furniture for Winter
Changing your furniture for a winter décor doesn’t necessarily mean you have to go out and buy a new set of furniture for every season. You just might have to add or take away some items. One great way to change your furniture for winter is to add some slipcovers. Heavier-material slipcovers in a wintery color will look great on your couches and chairs. You might also decorate the furniture using winter-themed pillows. These pillows can be solid-colored or plaid. Or you might find some with snowflake or snowman pictures on them. Another simple way to add some winter style to a room is by adding a heavy throw to the back of a couch or chair.
Change Your Artwork in Your Home for Winter
If you are trying to create a winter décor, you may not want pictures of bright flowers hanging on your walls. Consider storing these pictures away for the spring and summer, and hanging different pieces of art that give your home more of a wintertime feel. Any black and white photographs of nature, such as snow, trees, rivers, and mountains, are a perfect addition to a winter décor. You might also replace those bright and cheery flowers with hand-painted pictures of country snowfalls. You can also find paintings that use rich colors that fit better with winter.
These are just a few ideas of how to create a winter décor in your home. It’s fun to change the look of your home to celebrate the different seasons of the year.
