There are many homeowners who like to change the décor in their home and decorate it for each different season. There are plenty of creative ideas when it comes to winter decorating. Although there are many people who use the winter time to decorate for the holidays, there are also plenty of ways that you can decorate simply for the winter season. Here are some great ideas to get you started on your winter decorating.
Decorate Your Home in Winter White
When winter time hits, bring out your white décor items to turn your home into a white winter wonderland. White décor items can add some much needed light to your home since winter days and nights can be dark and dreary. They also bring the outside into your home as the white brings out the reminder of beautiful snowfalls. Simple ways to add more white to your home in the winter involve white tablecloths, white candles and white throws thrown over chairs and couches.
Hang a Winter Wreath in Your Home
Wreaths are not just for Christmas – and they make a great winter decoration that can be kept up from December to March. You can make your own greenery wreath or buy a pre-made one that matches the style of your home. Decorate the wreath with items that are associated with winter such as pine cones, white or flannel ribbon and silver charms. Hang the wreath on a wall. Be sure that the wreath and the wall are comparable in size as you don’t want a tiny wreath on a huge wall that has a great area of blank space, just as you don’t want a huge wreath on a tiny wall.
Change Your Furniture for Winter
Changing your furniture for winter doesn’t mean that you have to go and buy a completely new set of furniture for every season. It simply means that you may have to add or take away some items. Slipcovers can be a great way to change your furniture for winter. Add a heavier material slipcover as well as one in a wintery color to your couches and chairs. Decorate the furniture in winter-themed pillows. These pillows can be solid colored, plaid, or have a picture on them such as snowflakes or a snowman. Adding a heavy throw to the back of a couch can also be a simple way to add some winter style.
Change your Artwork in Your Home for Winter
If you have pictures of bright flowers hanging on your walls, that may not be appropriate for the winter time. You can easily store these pictures away for the spring and summer and hang different pieces of art to give your home more of a winter time feeling. Black and white photographs of nature such as snow, trees, rivers, and mountains can be perfect for a winter style. Or, replace the bright and cheery flowers with hand painted pictures of country snowfalls or of paintings that use rich colors that fit better with winter.
