6 QUICK & COZY HOME REVIVALS FOR WINTER
Select A Winter Color Pallet For A Cozy Home
Let’s talk about cozy home revivals for winter. You can have that same cozy feeling that you did at Christmas with less is more.
Let’s bring in cozy peaceful hues of neutrals or add a pop of color. The best way to do this is changing out your pillows, throw blankets as well as artwork.
For a winter color pallet try picking two or three colors. Here are some suggestions for a winter color pallet:
– All Creams for winter whites
– Rose, creams, and touch of blue
– Creams and greens
– Blues, creams, and gray
Did you know that you can change the vibe of a room by changing out just a few pillows? It can have the biggest impact in a room for the seasons. It’s a way to bring in color or go for a neutral pallet.
I love mixing neutrals for that winter white effect by using various textures in your pillows. Cream color pillows are perfect for all year long. They are especially pretty for the winter. Add pillows of all the same color but with different textures.
Bring In More Light
Winter’s shorter days and dimmer sunlight can leave our homes feeling a bit gloomy. But don’t despair! There are plenty of ways to brighten things up and bring more light into your space, even during the chilliest months. Let the light in through the windows to maximum natural light. Ditch heavy drapes and opt for sheer, white or cream linen curtains that allow light to filter through while still providing privacy.
Clean your windows: Grimy windows can significantly dim the natural light coming into your home. Give them a good scrub to let the sunshine in. It will lift your mood and make your home seem brighter.
Faux Throws For A Cozy Home
There are two ways to add a cozy look to your winter décor. Add a beautiful faux fur throw to your sofa. They are soft, warm and wash up well. It is a perfect addition for the sofa in the winter for snuggling up with the fireplace going or watching a good movie.
Have you seen the small faux furs? You may have seen mine used at Christmas and it is being used for winter too. I have it on my wood coffee table. It brings such a warmth into the room.
These smaller furs are beautifully draped over the back of a sofa, chair, bed, or bench. I have seen them used on top of a sideboard and table too.
Candlelight is beautiful any time of the year especially during the dark winter months. There is sometime beautiful yet magical with lighting candles. Candlelight can make for a cozy home feeling or vibe.
A large candle with multi wicks is lovely in a room. It can be placed on a buffet or kitchen island. I tend to use them in higher spaces and out of reach of little hands.
Try adding a few white or gold votive candle holders. The light within the white or gold gives sparkle and warmth. Its warm soft glow pairs wonderfully with a beautiful fire in the fireplace. I love to sprinkle them throughout the house. Don’t forget to add a lovely, scented candle for the winter. Candles infused with natural essential oils of citrus, cinnamon, vanilla, juniper berry, vetiver, clove, spruce, and pine smell wonderful and create a cozy smelling home during winter. The scent can be very uplifting as well.
Plants And Fresh Greenery
There is no reason for the greenery to completely disappear after the Christmas season is over. We loved how the green from our wreaths and garland made the house look alive. You can still have that look by adding faux or real plants to your space.
You can add a few sprigs of eucalyptus to a small vase. Check your local grocery store or Trader Joe’s for fresh greens.
Adding real or faux plants in your home adds color and warmth. These days, faux plants are made so realistic that you have to sometimes touch it to see if it’s real. You can easily change them out throughout the season for a fresh new look.
One of my favorite indoor plants is Devil’s Ivy Pothos. This plant loves indirect light. Pothos are super easy to grow. Just remember to water them every week and watch them grow!
Declutter & Donate
Start with a clean slate. What a wonderful way to kick off a brand-new year with a clean home.
With all the Christmas decorations comes the dust and the mess from packing it away. It’s the perfect time to do a good cleaning of the floors, baseboards, fireplace mantel and those kitchen counters.
A cozy home is a clean home too. I tend to remove everything off my counters to give it a good wipe down. Then items are added back into the space.
One of the first things that I do after the holidays is eliminate the clutter. By eliminating clutter with all the extra “stuff” is a great way for things to feel refreshed.
It’s a chance to recycle some of your home décor items. Put out some of those beautiful new Christmas gifts.
Keep in mind that you are trying to declutter. Remember that less is more too. Sometimes a bowl of fruit is all you need for a little pop of color in the winter months.
Donate any unwanted items. It is a perfect time to purge your home of items you no longer want to use. You can donate them to a local thrift store. I will put items in tubs and let my family and neighbors know that there are items going to the thrift stores. A few of my neighbor friends always want first dibs on it.
