Decorate for the cozy winter months ahead

It’s no secret I am in love with changing my home decor for the seasons and every few years. I don’t think you have to spend loads to change a look in a room.  I am the ultimate upcyling, recycling, bargain home shopper. Last year, I redecorated my front living room and actually made £400 extra in my pocket and had a brand new look that I fell in love with. With the cozy winter months ahead I am already thinking in terms of making the house warm and inviting. 

The thing I love most about winter is getting cozy in front of the fireplace with a good book, hot chocolate with marshmallows, my fuzzy socks on and a good throw blanket over me. To me, that is a cozy winter night in. I love the ambience that a fireplace gives off in the winter. If I could, I would put a fireplace in every room during the winter months. It’s the most relaxing time of the year. A fireplace also creates a great space above to decorate for the seasons. I love a large mantelpiece to adorn all my seasonal favorite items on. Don’t forget the clear twinkling lights are also a mantelpiece must have in winter.

Winter decorating doesn’t have to cost you a penny either. I love bringing nature indoors to give it that rustic natural look. There is so much you can do with fallen branches, acorns, pinecones, and more woodland effects in your home. Pinterest is flooded with ideas that will really make your home feel cozy this winter. Why not use large wicker baskets and fill them with chopped wood next to your fireplace even if you have a faux flame it really creates a warm atmosphere and looks the part too. 

I love baking during the winter months to fill the house with those warm, deep flavors of cinnamon, apple, mulled wine, oatmeal, and ginger. White Chocolate Pumpkin Cinnamon Swirls are a family favorite in the winter time. If you aren’t a baker though or don’t have the time use winter scented candles around the house or fill glass vases with cinnamon sticks and pinecones to create the same effect and it makes for great home accessories too.

  1. I hadn’t really thought about Autumn Winter yet – until this week, as it has got a little cooler now. I too like changing my home when the seasons change. Everything gets cosier and warmer looking 🙂 xx

    • I love Fall, and it’s decor. I have been pouring over pinterest for some diy home accessories projects for Fall. I think winter came faster than normal this year and with christmas what about 14 more fridays away that’s just frightful. lol

  2. We’re thinking of putting the summer quilt away and getting the duvet out and buying some candles, but that’s about as far as we redecorate in our house. Those photos are wonderful though.

  3. I can’t believe Winter is round the corner-A/W is absolutely my favourite season, style and family-wise from the food we make to how to decorate the house and of course I adore coats, hats, gloves and statement dresses for the Christmas period! Yay x
