We’re pleased to present a guest post article by Kelly Mahan about 3 Effortless Ways to Decorate Your Home for Winter.
The temperatures are dropping and it’s time to put away your warm weather decor. Time to pack up the citrus fruit tablecloth and pull out the flannel. Whether you love the crisp, cold air or not, you can still enjoy the interior decor of your home by using plush fabrics and winter colors. Here are three effortless ways you can turn your home into a cozy getaway for the cold, winter season.
For an instant way to make your home warm and cozy, use blankets. The best winter blankets are cable knit, faux fur, soft plush, and flannel. Drape them over the back of your sofa or roll them up and put them in a basket near your fireplace or entryway. Simply seeing the soft fabrics will make you and your guests feel instantly cozy. Bring blankets into your bedroom, too. Drape a faux fur blanket over your bed or fold a cable knit or flannel blanket and place it at the end of your bed. You’ll have added warmth within reach if you get cold during the night.
Pillows are also wonderful accent pieces to add warmth and comfort to your home. You can make your own set of winter pillows by using gold glitter iron transfer paper and white throw pillows. Or, if DIY isn’t your thing, you can get the Birds & Birch pillow slipcover from Casart Coverings. The cute bird with the birch trees will make your home (or your patio, since they’re all-weather) cozy and comfortable.
There’s something about cabins in the mountains that always feel inviting and cozy in the winter. Bring that woodsy feel to your own home by using warm-toned wood accents and hardwood floor. If you can’t bring yourself to let go of your wall-to-wall carpeting, try the Zebrawood – Organics or Satinwood – Organics wallcoverings from Casart Coverings. These wallcoverings are easy to install and look like organic wood. They’ll instantly increase the warmth in your home. Another cozy part of any cabin is the fireplace. Whether you have a gas or wood fireplace, you can take advantage of the warmth from the fire. Or, if your fireplace doesn’t work, you can always use pillar candles of varying heights to mimic the feel of a fire.
