Winter blues are very common, but they don’t have to become a thing! You can use your home decoration to make a cheerful season just as any other, all it takes is a bit of creativity. Creativity which we’ll kick start with these awesome ideas throughout the post, so keep reading and let your imagination flow!
“People don't notice whether it's winter or summer when they're happy.” - Anton Chekhov
Fill the Room with Color
Winter decorations usually revolve around the color blue, guess that’s one of the reasons we get winter blues after all. Blue is surely a beautiful color, but it does make the mood a bit too calm at times...this year we’re changing that!
You can still have something blue around, but the idea is that you bring a cheerful color inside, such as pink, and then match it with a winter like color, for example, you could match pink and purple!
Decorating the fireplace is ideal for fireplaces that don’t actually work anymore, but you can get something done with the ones that are still working too! Adding some flowers and a bit of color (as we mentioned before) will get the trick done in cheering your home.
Let it Snow
This is a nice way to upcycle an old pallet and give the season a joyful vibe! Since we all love seeing snow fall down during winter time, you might as well make a “let it snow” sign and use some Christmas lights to make it shine!
A chalkboard is probably the most versatile type of decoration, since it can be adapted to each and every season! For winter, you can get some snowmen decor and write down some winter stuff you love, like hot chocolate and snowflakes (as shown in the photo).
The best thing about this:
If you get sick of the decor, or if you don’t like the way it look, you can always erase everything and try again! So, gather all of your favorites and have fun with it!
If you have some old sweaters lying around, this is one of the coolest DIY projects for winter! You’ll simply cut them for the objects you’d like - planters and lamps are the most popular choices - and glue them there! It’s such a simple way to decorate and it adds a fancy yet cozy look!
Mirrors for Light
Winter is usually a season where there’s not as much sunshine, so to increase the light in your home, add more mirrors! Whichever way the light enters your place, the mirror will reflect it and make it look a lot more illuminated!
