With the outdoors only getting colder, you’ll want your interiors to feel warmer. Winter home accessories are the quickest way to take your home from seasonal stress to homely haven in a matter of a moments.
Fortunately, you don’t need to entirely clean out your Christmas decor either. These cosy essentials can either be brought out of the cupboard as an update to your holiday decorations or can even be a part of the festivities. No one will be able to tell either way!
Winter Home Accessories: the essentials
FAUX FUR BLANKET
The ultimate way to add cosy texture to your couch, it also doubles up as the best way to keep snug in winter, immediately adding a wood cabin vibe.
Whether featured in your blanket or themed in your cushions, nothing says winter is here quite like knits. Luckily, they don’t have to look like presents from Grandma; a splash of bright colour such as mustard or plum can bring instant warmth to a room.
A chic way to bring the outdoors in, lanterns look so wintry mounted on a table, ledge or fireplace, plus atmospheric lighting is an added bonus.
Adding a bear, wolf or stag anywhere in a room immediately says winter is here. It can be particularly effective in clean, crisp cushions. After all, what feels more like a rustic log cabin than a bear on a snowy white cushion?
What’s better than letting your feet get enveloped by a sheepskin rug? Answer: absolutely nothing. A faux fluffy rug is an absolute essential once the weather turns.
Luxury bed spread
You won’t want to leave your bed and face the cold when you replace your everyday sheets with a luxury bedspread.
How to Transition your Christmas decorations into winter decorations
Nothing feels cosier than watching a flickering winter candle at work. Of course, those festive scents you got from your Christmas stocking will continue to work for you throughout winter. Cinnamon and clove orange is just as relevant in January as December 25.
Spray painted pine cones are a must-have homemade craft essential for Christmas but they can also bring a rustic wintry vibe to your living room so don’t ditch them once the festivities are over.
Bringing the outside in is a key theme in dressing your home for winter. Snowflake paper lanterns are ideal for putting up for Christmas but can also transcend the festive period.
Love this year’s Christmas tree lights? There’s no need to pack them away in a box when you can drape them around your windows and cabinets for the ultimate budget home lighting idea.
If you’ve popped a few Christmas-style ornaments on your mantelpiece then, providing they’re not overtly festive, can remain. Look for wooden or metallic ornaments that can take you from Christmas, all the way through winter.
Adding a chic garland to your fireplace is not just for Christmas, it can look so effective against a snowy white backdrop.
