Winter Home Decor

A view of Lauren’s warm and inviting winter decor in her family room.

Gathering different types of accessories create visual appeal to Lauren’s coffee table. The storage box, in complimentary shades of brown and mother of pearl, and the metal candle sleeve, with snowflake cutouts, create elegance and scent in the room.

Gold glitter square placements from Pier 1 Imports can serve a dual purpose on my dining room table. When placed together, they serve a gorgeous table runner. When used separately, they are perfect to add sparkle to each place setting.  The crackled glass hurricanes (also from Pier 1 Imports), in a brown-gold ombre hue, house my well-lit pillar candles.

 These faux hydrangeas from Pier 1 Imports will have you doing a double-take because they are so full and realistic. Lauren opts for a subtle pop of color that compliments the warm tones.  The large Tuscan urn represents the rustic, Italian flair throughout the home.

My gray faux fur table runner gives a soft, yet sophisticated, look to my kitchen table.  The decorative spheres add the finishing touches as the perfect centerpiece.

Pine cones, cinnamon sticks, and decorative faux fruit serve as vase fillers on my kitchen counter.  Winter artificial pine and twigs represent the season and create height next to the mantle mirror.  Additional pine cones are placed to bring nature into the home.

Display a work of art with a saying that represents the winter season! 

I, Lauren, love to decorate my home with accents that flow nicely and compliment my warm autumn color scheme. Instead of using pops of color, I opt for mixing metals, woods, and glass to add texture and dimension for a glamourous look. I have to admit that I almost always gravitate to any accessory that offers a little sparkle or a wow factor!  Accent pillows and throws are simple things you can do to instantly freshen up a room.  When I’m feeling the winter blues, fresh blooms always lift the mood.  I believe your home is a true reflection of you and your personality. Let it represent your best self!

With her warm blanket and cozy accent chair, Karen finds this the perfect place to curl up and relax this winter.  

Winter Home Decor

Florals that offer an instant pop of color, scattered throughout the house, offer that ” Winter pick me up” that is much needed throughout the season!

To bring a ray of sunshine into Karen’s home this winter, she accents with bright colors.  Florals, either real or faux, bring life to each room in her home.  Metallic vases, glass hurricanes, and scented candles add pizzaz and scent.  Coffee Table books with vibrant hues act as a piece of art and showcase Karen’s personality.  Being creative doesn’t mean you have to break the bank when it comes to seasonal decor.  Re-purposing accessories that you already own by displaying them in different ways can add a fresh new look.  Be creative and have fun!

Tablecloths and runners come in all shapes and sizes.  They can add texture, color, and even a little sparkle to your dining table. Place a wine glass filled with seasonal decor, turn it upside down to create a centerpiece, then add a pillar or decorative candle on top.  We used miniature Christmas ornaments in shades of gold, silver, and red to fill our glass.   Votive candle holders work as holders for those extra salt and pepper shakers needed on the table.   Create your own wine glass charms by using any extra miniature Christmas ornaments.  Thread a ribbon through the ornament/bulb, then tie around stem of the wine glass and place the glass on a fancy coaster.  This will allow your guests to keep track of their glass throughout the evening.  You can also personalize by writing their name on the ornament.

Glass Hurricanes, cylinder vases, and apothecary jars are perfect for storing candy or Halloween decór.  Fill and layer with different colorful candies like candy corn and marshmallow ghost peeps.  Create a fun, festive centerpiece to your table setting or accent your spooktacular party display.   This DIY project is simple enough for everyone and most items you may already have at home or you can get from your local discount store.  Place candy corn in your glass hurricanes or cylinders.  Then, rest a pillar candle in the center as this will keep your candle standing upright.  Try mini pumpkins or gourds to give a Fall flare or add skulls and spiders to keep it creepy.  Add the final touches with Halloween ribbons, faux leaves, or flowers.  We love this idea so much that we’ve carried the theme on to many holidays throughout the year!
