When summer fades, we all start spending a little more time indoors to hide from the windy winter days and nights—unless you escape on a warm-weather vacation, that is. But for those days that you do spend at home where it’s cozy, you want to make sure that your home has the best winter décor possible. There’s nothing worse than being stuck in a number of rooms that leave you bored and uninspired.
Here’s a winter goal for you: Do a bit of updating before the first snow hits. There’s a lot you can do to add a little personality to your space, and it’s only going to help once the winter blues hit. Taking inspiration from the snowy scenes outside or the impending holiday greenery is a great place to start. Find a couple of cool-toned colors that speak to you and start your hunt for a few investment décor pieces.
From Mid-century-modern fireplaces to cozy throw blankets, we pulled together a wishlist of winter home décor items we want to find a spot for in our own homes.
There’s nothing like a fire to keep things cozy and inviting during the winter. If your home doesn’t have a built-in fireplace, set up your own. The Malm fireplace from Design Within Reach is inspired by the Mid-century fireplaces of years past without coming off dated.
