When summer is in full swing, it feels like we rarely spend an evening in the house. Whether you’re enjoying a walk, doing some late shopping, catching up with friends or just relaxing in the garden, there seems to be little time left for taking in your living space.
But winter is definitely the season for wrapping up warm, getting cosy and shutting out the outside world. This is the time of year when you can really make the most of your home, and appreciate the environment you’ve created.
So why not go the extra mile and give your home a new lease of life for the chilliest season? These are our favourite décor tips to help you spruce up your living space this winter.
No home feature feels more quintessentially ‘winter’ than the fireplace, so be sure to make the most of it. Invest in a few seasonal touches like scented candles or fairy lights to really make your fireplace stand out. You can even take it one step further and really go all out with winter greenery or a garland of frosty pinecones and other chilly touches.
Of course, not every home comes complete with a fireplace. But if you don’t have a fireplace in your living area, you can still give the sense of a cosy centrepiece with a bit of creativity. A seasonally decorated shelf or console table can have a similar effect, especially when positioned below a piece of statement wall art to really draw the eye.
We all love coming home in winter, so why not really make an entrance by sprucing up your front door. From a festive wreath to a few more subtle seasonal elements, putting a bit of flair into your front door will make you even more excited to get home at the end of a long day.
Whether on the dining table or coffee table, a floral centrepiece is a great way to bring focus to a space and inject a dose of luxury and colour. This doesn’t have to be anything too elaborate, but a collection of wintery items like winter-blooming flowers and fir sprigs will help your home really celebrate the season.
Greenery can feel a bit scarce in the chillier months of the year. The trees lose their leaves, and those springtime flowers feel like a long time ago. The best way to counteract this is to introduce plenty of fresh greenery and botanicals into your home. Whether you stick to winter foliage or opt to switch things up with more tropical options, a few well-placed houseplants can give your living space a breath of fresh air.
Cosiness is the key word when it comes to winter décor. It’s cold, dark and miserable outside, so making your home as warm and welcoming as possible is the best way to fight off the winter blues. Make sure your living space includes plenty of thick throws and cushions, as well as soft lighting options and plush rugs. Extra little touches like candles and personal knick-knacks will help to make your house really feel like a home this winter.
