And it’s the time to make your home cozier than ever. Warm up your living room with a cushy rug and lit fireplace.

Winter Decorating Tips

For the winter season, either continue the warm and toasty theme you started in the Fall season, whereby hues of taupe, ecru and mauve are utillized. Or, you can draw inspiration from the white-capped mountains, using matching colors of soft gray, silver and blue into your interior.

As winter approaches, you might want to refresh your home with a cinnamon or vanilla scent. Turn your home into an aromatherapy extravaganza. Also, a large vase full of flowers can be a beautiful centerpiece that adds some freshness into your winter abode. Now is the time to change the sheets in your bedroom to heavy blankets and flannel sheets. Find a comforter in a pastel or white that brightens up your bedroom while keeping it cozy.

Mantel decorating is easily done with some fresh flowers. Don’t forget to utilize candles when possible because they not only enhance ambience, but also create the perfectly-scented room.


Holiday Decorating Tips

While you can tailor your home décor for the current season, many also like to decorate for the seasonal holidays. Here are a few holiday suggestions:
Halloween: Keep it classic with a carved jack-o-lantern and some cashmere covers of burnt orange, white or yellow. These Fall colors will provide the perfect segway into Thanksgiving.

Thanksgiving: Natural décor is a go-to for many homeowners looking to spruce up their home in winter, especially if you’re going for a classic, chic look. Find patterns with winter colors such as off-white and taupe for your new throw pillows that will complement your Thanksgiving decorations.

Christmas: White lights and a real Christmas tree should be at the forefront of your holiday décor. However, the key is to not overdo it. Select a few areas in each room that can be decorated based on your personal tastes.

Valentine’s Day: Keep decadent chocolates in an over-sized black, red, pink or white bowl on your credenza. Wall artwork that celebrates romance also creates the perfect holiday ambience.
