the inspiration files: winterizing

With the weather starting to get frosty and December right around the corner, my mind is wandering towards cozy and warm winter decorating. Over this next season, we spend so much time indoors (at least we do here in Ontario!), so it’s nice to have a welcoming and snuggly pad to come home to. My favourite things to do at this time of year are to pile on the knit throws and pillows (it’s all about layers and textures!), add in lots of candles, and inject some warmer colours like burnt orange, deep reds, or gold tones. It’s also nice to bring in some greenery and natural elements to up the rustic factor.

Here are some pretty dreamy spaces I have been spotting lately on Pinterest

Do you sort of want to go grab a cuppa tea, a throw blanket, and cozy up for a movie or with a book right now like I do? Do you change up your decor at this time of year? Have any winter decorating tips or tricks of your own? Do you like the white-on-white look, or do you like to add in other colours?

    Wow! love all these images. I love all these things to make the house cozy for winter- the rustic style and different textures. I have a similar orange throw- love orange accents to add warmth. But I am seriously coveting sheepskin & chunky knit throws.
