Decorating Your Home for Winter

6543918_SDoes the house seem bare now that the tree and yuletide décor is gone? Yes, the holidays are over but that doesn’t mean you can’t decorate for winter.

Rearrange your furniture. If you have a fireplace, pull furniture towards the hearth to create a cozy gathering spot.

Add some bright pops of color to counteract the blue and silver scene outside.

Just like you bundle up to go outdoors during these cold months, use slipcovers on your dining room chairs for a fun layered look. Layer beds with textured throws and pillows. Add dozens of throw pillows to your couch and chairs in your living room.

Throw a sheepskin rug by the fireplace or better yet put one on each side of your bed. Your footsies will thank you when you get up each morning.

Hang thick velvet curtains. Hang these right over the window treatments you already have. Once the warmer months arrive you can simply take them down.

You can still dress up the mantle of your fireplace. The greens and holly may have gone, but why not create a scene using a white, silver and a pale blue palette? Add glittery snowflakes too.

Hang glass icicles from the chandelier over your dining room table. Glittered branches in glass vases make a beautiful centerpiece.

Add snowflake decals to any mirrors in the house. If you have any snowman décor from the holidays, it is perfectly acceptable to leave those out.
