It's that time of the year again! The time for garland, holly, Christmas-scented candles, heavy sweaters, hot cocoa, a roaring fire, and Christmas trees. Need we say more?
If you're excited as we are, you're likely already thinking of how you're going to decorate for the season. That's why we've compiled a list of our top favourite winter decor accessories that will bring your home to life all season long.
Winter Decorating Ideas
Whether you're looking for Christmas decorating ideas or just winter decorating ideas in general, these suggestions combine the best of both worlds and are sure to (literally) spruce up your house all winter long.
Bring Fresh, Winter Greenery Indoors
There are many ways to use fresh greenery and the best part is, it lasts a long time (upwards of 3–4 weeks). You can use it to decorate your front door with a wreath, place it along the mantel of your fireplace with some candles or pictures, or use it as a centrepiece on your dining room table (or even your coffee table). Not only will it look great but it will also make your house smell great, too!
Don't Forget The Pine Cones
Does anything yell out winter decorations quite like pine cones? Whether they're real or fake, they can be used in addition to garland on your mantel, included in a wreath, or placed individually as centrepieces on your dining table, side table, or coffee table. To add a little bit of a rustic feature, you can also fill a bowl with them or place them around the base of mason jars filled with candles.
Use Fake Snow To Set The Scene
Fake snow can mean a couple of different things depending on your particular decor style. This can come in the form of white fluff, powder, textured, or spray. This is a fun way to bring the outdoors, indoors (without the cold) but also create a cozy feel. Whether you add fake snow to your Christmas tree, wreath, along any window sills, or on any surfaces in your dining room or living room, it will make your space look more bright and ready for the holidays.
Use Winter-Scented Candles For Light
What's more cozy and warm than candlelight during the winter months? While it can be argued that this feeling can be enjoyed during all four seasons, there's something particularly special about it on blistering, wintery nights. But to go one step further to add a wintery touch, purchase winter-inspired scents like chestnut, peppermint, pine, cedar, or campfire. Place them in any room of the house; your bedroom, living room, dining room, kitchen, and even your bathroom to make every room feel even cozier. Set the candles amongst winter greenery, atop the fireplace, or purchase ones that can be placed on wall sconces.
Winter Decor Comes Once A Year, So Why Not Go All Out?
Winter decor is all about creating a cozy, warm, inviting, and festive space. It helps spread holiday cheer which is something that we all need once a year. Whether it's with fake snow, fresh winter greenery, or winter-scented candles, the possibilities are endless.
