Winter Home Decororating Ideas

Happy Tuesday!  It’s a bright, sunshiny day in Pennsylvania and the crazy groundhog didn’t see his shadow?   I don’t understand the groundhog’s prognostications, but I’ll take an early spring!   But, it’s still winter and there’s snow on the ground, so today I wanted to share a few things that I’ve done to tide me over until I can go full on spring with my decor!   So, here are some winter home decor ideas!

Winter Living Room with black and white buffalo check curtains

Since Christmas, I’ve made some changes in the living room.  All of the previous red and white that had been in this space has been packed away for next year!  But, I did intentionally leave out some things from my Christmas decor that work well into the winter months.  A stag head hanging on the wall is perfect for winter months.  I’ve had this twig stag head for years and mounted it onto a wood slice that I painted black and did a chalk design around the edges.  Hanging around the twig stag head is a small grapevine wreath and I wove some eucalyptus branches into it.

 On the library tabletop there are some winter “accessories”.  Just like we have accessories for our wardrobes, our homes also need some accessories. 


Here are some that I like to use in my winter home decor: 

  • pinecones
  • antlers
  • evergreen branches
  • candles
  • wood accents
  • white florals
  • mittens and scarves
  • wooden skis
  • sleds
  • ice skates
  • cozy throw blanks
  • faux fir pillows

On the library table, I used some of these winter accessories to create a winter vignette.   Sugar cones, antlers, a lantern with a candle, and some white tulips from the grocery store.  And, there’s a mini cypress topiary that I picked up recently.   The greenhouses bring in a lot of them for the Christmas season and they are often discounted at this time of year.

I made these arrow pillow covers using a wool applique technique.  And, the arrows are a subtle nod to Valentine’s Day.

Of course, I couldn’t help snapping a pic of Sadie perched on the back of the chair looking at all the birds in the front yard!

Yes, it was a nice distraction! Your buffalo check curtains were the first thing that led me to your blog years ago via Pinterest. What a nice picture of Sadie. God bless you and keep you safe. Peace and Grace.....

Hello! I lobe your buffalo check drapes :) I've browse to see if you had blogged about where they are from or where the fabric is from but haven't come across anything...could you share? Also where did you find the twig deer head? Thanks in advance!

Hi! The buffalo check curtains were made from fabric I purchased at Ikea. Unfortunately, they no longer carry it! I found the twig deer head at a local shop a few years ago. Wish I could be of more help!

Nice and cozy room and I'm not even thinking spring yet. I feel like we haven't had full blown winter yet. Crazy spring like temps keep coming back here and then it gets cold again. I love your new pillows.

Your home is lovely. Also I am so excited to learn there is a World Market here in PA. And it's within driving distance. Perhaps we live near to each other?
