When the weather outside is frightful, your instinct to nest might be kicking in. Since you’ll be stuck inside the next few months, now is the time to update your space. Cure your case of cabin fever with these three winter decorating ideas.
1. Incorporate Color
This winter, combat the shades of gray outside with bright pops of color inside. Purchase colorful accessories to incorporate into your home’s décor. Hues such as hot pink, aqua blue, and bright yellow will ready the space for the warmer seasons ahead.
2. Cozy Up With Throws
The most practical accessory for chilly winter weather is a warm blanket. If your throws have seen better days, it might be time to update them when thinking about winter decorating. Look for blankets in fun hues that you can use to decorate, draping them over couches and chairs or folding them along the edge of your bed. Luxurious fabrics — think velvet, faux fur and cashmere — are all the rage right now!
3. Make a Fireplace Your Focal Point
A toasty warm fire is the perfect winter decorating accessory for any home. If you’re lucky enough to have a fireplace in your space, make sure it’s the focal point of your room. The more people who can enjoy it, the better! Add a fluffy rug or large floor pillows in front of the hearth. Move chairs and couches so they’re facing the flames, and consider mounting your TV above the mantel so you can enjoy the heat while binging on Netflix all season long!
