The holiday season is a time to gather the family and decorate your home. Whether you store and reuse your decorations year after year, or you buy new ones every year, don’t be afraid to show your own personal touch and stray away from perfection this season. Holiday decor is meant to make your space feel welcoming and cozy. Check out these winter home decor ideas for this holiday season.
If your previous year’s decor has mysteriously gone missing, or it’s just simply time to update, consider stepping outside and incorporating nature into your home. From green leaves, coloured leaves, pine cones, pine needles, and flowers there is an endless supply of natural decor right outside your door. And the best part, it’s free!
Earthy tones can be easy to accomplish, especially if you’ve collected your decor from the great outdoors. In addition to that, consider straying away from the traditional holiday colours. Try something new this year by incorporating your favourite colour to match your home’s aesthetic. Moving away from the traditional colours can give your home a warm and relaxed feeling this holiday season.
To add to the warm and relaxed feeling you can hang soft twinkle lights throughout your home. With a less is more attitude, lights can help you dial it back on your decor elements, while still adding the holiday feel to your home. In addition to interior lighting, you can consider hanging lights outside as well. While you can decorate your trees, try spotlighting an area you may utilize during the dark winter evenings, such as your porch or deck.
While we are here suggesting holiday decor ideas for you, do not be afraid to do your own thing. Adding your personal touch to your holiday decor is what can make it stand out, while also making it feel comfortable for you and your family. Decorating your home isn’t meant to be about perfection. Try to focus more on the moment and memories that you can share. Instead of buying classic decor, consider getting together with the family to make your own. Paper snowflakes, wreaths, and even your tree can all be done DIY style.
Try integrating different decor ideas into your space this holiday season. Always remember that less is more, and don’t be afraid to add your own personal touches.
