The transition from Christmas to winter décor is a delicate dance of timing, taste, and intentionality. The right winter-themed decorations make the transition seamless. Long after you’ve taken down your Christmas tree, wreaths, and garland, Pepper + Vetiver is here to keep the wonder of a holiday atmosphere in your home. We’ll help you mix and match natural seasonal elements and neutral wintry colors to create an inner sanctuary of warmth and light. When it’s cold outside, we give you 10 winter decor ideas for a comfy home.
#1. Add Winter-Themed Flowers in Vases for Use Around the Home
Nothing says winter more than a stunning arrangement of flowers, such as carnations, Christmas roses, winter honeysuckle, jasmine, and pine, which you can put on display in the beautiful Barclay Natural Wood Vase. The light color of the natural wood will help bring out the stunning shades of any flowers you choose to use. Place this vase anywhere in the home to add to your winter decor.
#2. Use a Tiered Tray for Displaying Some of Your Favorite Winter Decor
If you already have some stunning winter-themed figurines, such as ceramic angels, stars, snowflakes, and more, proudly put them on display using the sophisticated Carlye Black Tiered Tray. The modern metal design is spacious yet compact enough to fit in even the smallest spaces.
#3. Create a Warm, Welcoming Feel with a Decorative Table Runner
You can't go wrong with a reversible holiday table runner when decorating your home for the winter. But if you’re looking for a neutral warmth, go for something more modern and simplistic, such as the stunning Enid Table Runner. Proving that less is genuinely more, this piece adds a dynamic texture with its black and natural colors and gorgeous chevron design.
#4. Place Small Candles in Your Favorite Spaces
Adding a few small candles to different rooms throughout the house is the perfect way to create a warm and cozy vibe that leaves you feeling at home. Rather than leaving small candles out on surfaces like your end table or coffee table, place them in small fixtures, such as the Cerise Glass Hurricane with Wood Base. This contemporary piece with a rustic vibe pair well with winter mantel décor, and is easily portable for multiple surfaces and rooms.
#5. Promote Winter Vibes with a Comfortable Throw Blanket
Leave your home looking like a warm and comforting oasis on the coldest days of the year by adding a special touch to your couch or loveseat. The best way to do this? We'd say strategically placing the Maraya Throw Blanket on the center of the sofa, making it easily accessible when you want to curl up and read a good book or binge-watch your favorite shows. Not only will it come in handy on those cold nights, but the throw blanket will also add a special touch to the room when not in use because of its distinct pattern.
#6. Place a Floral Throw in Any Room
The living room isn't the only good place to use a throw blanket. In fact, put a comfortable and stylish piece, such as the Iliana Throw Blanket, on the back of your dining room chair or in the study/home office where you get your work done. Its floral pattern, fringed edges, comfortable slub cotton material, and hues of ivory and black make this the perfect addition to your home when searching for winter decor ideas that aren't holiday themed.
#7. Use Minimalist-Style Holiday Accents to Tie Your Winter Decor Together
Who says your winter decor has to be bright red and dark green? We’re guessing you’ve noticed we love neutral shades and decorative trays. If you want to create a winter-themed vibe inside your home, go for the minimalist-style holiday accents, such as the stunning Wood Snowman Tray, perfect for serving guests throughout the season. Made of mango wood and designed to look like a snowman, this piece is spacious enough to hold crackers and cheese, fruit and nuts, or even your favorite cookies and candies.
#8. Give Vintage Decor Styles a Try
Even if you'd consider yourself someone who goes for modern, contemporary pieces over vintage items, these Antique Copper Taper Holders are an excellent addition to the home during the winter season. Composed of forged iron and available in a stunning copper color, they're a true conversation piece that will look amazing in the center of your dining room table. Learn to mix modern and vintage elements into your winter decor, even if you don't want to place them on the dining room table as a winter-themed centerpiece. You can also put this vintage decor on a console table or in any other spot around the home to add an elegant and sophisticated touch.
#9. Decorate Your Coffee Table
If you have a coffee table in your living room, it's one of the first things people will see from the minute they step foot in your home. Want to add excitement and personality to the room while staying in line with your winter decor ideas? If so, we recommend using the Sarkis Wood Bowl in Espresso as a centerpiece, filling it with decorative pieces, such as pine cones, artificial cranberries, and holiday baubles in a color of choice, such as sparkling silver or gold.
#10. Put Your Fruit on Display
Whether real or artificial, placing your fruit in bowls like the Wren Teakwood Bowls is a fantastic way to elevate the look and feel of your home. Perfect for placing on a dining room table or in the center of a kitchen island where guests gather together for good food and fun conversations, the natural wood of these bowls can bring out the brightness of your favorite fresh fruits. Some of the best fruits to place on display to go with your winter theme? Juicy red apples and purple grapes pair perfectly together, truly adding to that winter theme you'd like to achieve.
With these winter decor ideas for a comfy home, you’ll surround yourself with warmth during the snowy season. While air is frosty outside, create a peaceful aesthetic inside your home that remains even after Christmas has passed.
