Tips on Decorating for Winter

Metallic Room
When outdoor temperatures drop and it’s cold and wet outside, stay cozy and warm indoors with style using decorating tips geared especially towards the winter season. It’s a great time to pull out all your stylish soft, fluffy throws for the living room and warm, comfortable blankets for the bedroom. Keep rooms warm with heavy draperies, but prevent your home from being dreary with brightly colored window dressings. Dressing your home up for winter can be fun.

Cozy Up to the Fireplace

When it’s cold outside, put the focus on a warm hearth by rearranging furniture around your fireplace. Pull your pieces toward the room’s center and face them toward a roaring fire for a cozy gathering spot. No fireplace? Try adding a decorative, hanging fireplace that doesn’t require a chimney and burns using get fuel canisters.

Keep Floors Stylishly Warm

Bare floors are cold and while they add a sophisticated look, they’re unpleasant to walk on during the winter. Cozy them up in a stylish manner with fluffy area rugs for warmth and comfort underfoot. For more visually unique flooring, try layering rugs or smaller carpets throughout your home to make floors warm and inviting.

Chase Away Winter Blues

Wintertime sometimes brings the blues, so chase them away by adding pops of color throughout your home. Brighten up even the dreariest days with bold colors and patterns for your throws and pillows in your living spaces. Throw in a few extra ones for added warmth and comfort while watching the flames dance in your fireplace.

Go Natural

Using natural elements throughout your home is a great way to bring the outdoors inside this season. Try decorating your rooms with pine cones, leaves, flowers and wood for an inviting winter wonderland.
