As the nights get cooler and darkness falls sooner, thoughts of Winter fill our heads. Even if you don’t live in an area with frosty weather, you can still bring a little winter warmth into your home.
As one of the most used rooms in the home, there’s no better place to show off your home’s winter décor than the Living room. It’s comfy, cozy, warm, and welcoming, no matter where you live.
If you enjoy incorporating seasonal colors into your home and want new living room winter décor ideas, keep reading for some tips and inspiration.
Add Some Seasonal Delight to Your Living Room
It’s the little touches that make a difference, as you can see in this warm living room. Rich brown leather furniture and creamy white walls work well in any season. All the room needs are subtle touches.
Creating a centerpiece filled with red apples, dried flowers, and some greenery, will make the room feel extra special for the winter holidays and beyond. Another idea is to add some scented pinecones and up the ante with the comforting aroma of cinnamon and vanilla. These touches create an atmosphere that easily moves in and out of the holiday season.
Add Winter Pillows and Throws
Comfort and warmth are a major part of winter feels. Liven up your space by adding crisp white or jewel-toned fabrics.
In the kitchen and bathroom, you can update your dishtowels, hand towels, and even washcloths in ruby red, hunter green, or sapphire blue to make the holidays bright. In your living room and throughout gathering spaces, add pillows and throws in these colors to create a nice touch for the season. The bedrooms can also get this treatment, whether it be your windows or your bed.
Adorn Your Door for the WinterGet your guests into the spirit of the season by hanging a festive floral arrangement or wreath on your front door. Look for rustic ones with twine, greenery, dried oranges, and cinnamon, or fancier ones with brightly-colored flowers. When it comes to door displays, the options are endless.
Add Winter-White Flowers in a Pretty VaseIf you don’t want to go all out, that’s okay. Do it subtly by adding a pretty vase of winter-white blooms to the dining room table. It will freshen up the space and bring a little reminder of the season into your dining room. It’s easy to spice it up a little for special occasions, or just let the flowers speak for themselves.
Scent Your Home with Winter FlavorsFill the air in your home with scents of the season. This can easily be achieved with candles in cinnamon, vanilla, and pine scents.
If you're feeling DIY, you can make your own scent mix with a simmer pot on the stove. Just add your favorite fall spices, such as cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon, and ginger. Add some sliced oranges or cranberries, and even a dash of vanilla. Experiment until you get the scent you want. These scents will add a special touch to the wonderful winter colors that fill your home.
