The holidays are just around the corner, and most of us are busier than ever. If you’re ready to integrate some festive decor without spending all weekend with your scissors and hot glue, you’re in luck: We’ve ruminated on winter design and have come up with some simple, cost-effective projects to get your home ready for a season of festivities.
Let there be light… And let it be white!
Save yourself a decorative headache and eschew the color lights this year. White or clear lights evoke a subtle winter theme in your home without looking garish or overpowering. Don’t be afraid to get creative, either. Fill a basket with greens or pine cones and weave white lights around the bottom to create an understated glow. Weave lighting around your bannister or wind it around your window curtain to let the light radiate.
Give Your Doorways Some TLC
If you’re strapped for time, focus on giving some decorative flair to your entryways. Create a swag (the decorative kind—not the free merchandise kind) from strung pine cones or evergreen boughs, or string oversize lights around the doorway. This will provide an appealing winter design for both rooms and is the perfect time-effective endeavor.
Embrace a seasonal color palette
White or silver accents dominate home design during the holiday season. Even though you may not want to have a snowy color scheme throughout the entire year, it’s easy to integrate it into your home seasonally with a few simple tools. Invest in a few silvery shams to slip over your existing decorative pillow and throw a cozy white blanket on your couch. Cluster white candles on the coffee table or make a centerpiece on your dining room table.
