In this post: There are certain seasonal design elements you can find many cozy homes. Here are 9 ways to add winter warmth to your home.
You know those amazing cozy homes that remind you of a Swiss chalet?
If there’s one thing I want at this time of year it’s to be warm and cozy at home. After all the colorful excitement of the holidays, as the year begins I’m looking to slow down, clear away all the clutter and spend time at home recharging.
Early in the week I posted my January home decor inspiration, so now I’ll begin to show you how I’m applying those ideas to my home. Here are 9 ways to add winter warmth to your home.
I love the look of a chunky sweater knit pillow, especially in warm creamy tones. It exudes a feeling of warmth that makes you want to curl right up with a book by the fire.
Candles lend a warm glow to a room and I enjoy the woodsy feel of this charming lantern. You can see the bare white branches in the background, another wintery nod toward nature, with little flecks of faux snow.
Nothing says cozy like a cup of tea, particularly when served in a delicate china cup. Pops of gilded trim invite the light to glint off of it.
A shaggy long haired pillow adds another touch of warmth. A simple cashmere throw in a complementary tone balances nicely against the texture.
While I love the clean look of all the whites layered together, a buttery yellow wall envelops a room in sunlight, when there’s a shortage of sun outside.
For really cold nights a faux fur throw can’t be beat. Its soft warmth is a true pleasure.
The creamy mood extends to the florals, as well. I love fresh flowers, but use silks in addition, especially in winter when the selection of fresh is limited.
The brightness afforded by the interplay of all these textured whites hides the grey gloom right outside the window.
The final note is a hot cup of chicken soup, presented in a charming vintage china bowl. Napkins are from Fragonard, Paris.
