Winter Home Decor Trends: Cosy and Inspirational Ideas for Your Home
….. a 3 1/2 minute read…..
Late autumn is a great time of the year to spruce up your home ready for the colder months ahead. Creating a cosy home that you want to spend time in and enjoy.
We love the winter months so we’ve has a look at some seasonal trends to help you make your home nice and cosy! If you’re selling then it will make you house look great for viewings as well.
Prepare for the Footprints
First you need to do is create a space where the family can come in out of the cold and mud, and not ruin your flooring! Whether it’s at the back door, or by the front door, this space will help you keep things clean.
It might be that you lay down a larger-than-normal doormat, or use a special covering to protect the carpet. You also may want to install hooks to hang your coats up straight away.
Put your summer shoes away in a wardrobe and keep your winter footwear out. That way, you can minimise the clutter.
We all love winter smells in the home. Candles are a low-cost way of creating a beautiful winter aroma in your house. Pop one on your mantelpiece and you have something nice to look at and something delicious to smell too.
And don’t forget, if you have more than one candle, you won’t always need to have all the lights on to create an ambience.
Get some natural inspiration
There a load of things outside that you can bring inside to create a beautiful natural display in your home. Dry some leaves, collect fallen twigs and pine cones and away you go. Remember to make sure that there are no creepy crawlies hidden away!
Don’t go overboard, as too much will look messy. The key is to create something simple and effective, giving a hint of the season. One or two small logs by the fireside will look attractive too.
Dine-in, in Style
We spend more time at home in the autumn and winter months. Chances are, this year we’ll be spending even more time at home. So, why not make your rooms a little bit more special? Use an autumnal coloured table cloth in your dining room to create an atmosphere. Matching napkins will bring style to the dining room too.
You can always find winter room settings in magazines and on the internet. Have a look and find something to your taste. With a bit of creativity, you can turn your house into a cosy winter home.
One thing people seem to do during winter is to switch all the lights on full beam! It doesn’t create a cosy living space. You need light but not bright light….. This has me thinking about a Christmas film but I digress!
A standard lamp in a corner could provide the main light, with smaller lamps placed on tables in the living room. You should think about cosiness – softer lighting, rugs on the floor, a throw or two on the sofa.
The atmosphere you create at home can help you through the long winter months. A few seasonal items here and there will transform your home.
Take time to make it right for you and your loved ones. It’s going to be a Christmas like no other so let’s all make the best of what we have.
