Here are my favorite tips for how to decorate with less during the winter months!
1. Use artificial greens and florals to add lively pops of color.
In the winter months, I tend to opt for artificial as it’s a bit more difficult to keep real plants alive.
Put your artificial plants in cute containers to add color and interest. I love popping cute plants in old terra-cotta pots, galvanized containers, woven baskets and copper pieces. Also, wreaths are another great touch that bring things to life. They can easily be added to doors, mantels, walls, mudrooms, hood vents…pretty much anywhere!
2. Switch out your throw pillows and blankets.
This is such a fun way change things up, and you can store decor that gets reused each season. For example, pillow covers and throws.
In the blah winter months, I opt for tons of texture. We all love coming home from a cold day and snuggling, am I right?! I love snuggling up on the couch in a cozy blanket and soft, overstuffed pillows. Some of our clients love deep, winter woodsy hues while others prefer bright winter landscape colors. Neither is right or wrong…do what floats your boat!
3. Add a few decorative items to surface areas.
Again, less is more! I love mixing old with new, but I keep this rule a thumb for a professionally styled look. Consider some old, stacked books, a pop of greenery and a few candlesticks for a simple, yet complete look.
You are beautiful. Your home is beautiful. XO!
