A Few Winter Touches - Decorating Inside When It's Cold Outside

The snowstorm last week made me realize we still have a couple months left of winter around here.  I think I was in denial right after Christmas when I decorated my mantel.  The weather had been so mild that I pretty much skipped right over winter and jumped into vacation mode.  But then it snowed.  It really snowed.  Suddenly, I felt the need to embrace the cold weather, at least for a little while longer.  It helped to pull out a few things to decorate for the season.

Decorating with Pine Cones

Pine cones still work for this time of year.  It's easy to just throw a bunch into a basket and be done...instant winter decor!

Snowy views
I took this photo the morning after the snowstorm.  The sun shining on the beautiful fresh snow outside somehow added to the coziness inside.

Winter candle decor

I swapped out the old decaying cranberries I had in these candle holders at Christmas time for some river stones.  This could work for fall or winter.

Decorating with Branches

In the guest bathroom, I filled this basket/vase with some white wintery branches.  I like the way they look against the sage green walls.

Chalkboard Quote Art

Excuse the glare on this one.  Each season I replace the artwork in that bathroom with a quote or free printout.  I found this free printable winter chalkboard art from The Happy Housie.  The John Steinbeck quote is appropriate for this time of year.

Sometimes I want to rush through this time of year and get to the warmer weather.  But then I see my kids skiing, sledding and enjoying the snow and I am reminded to enjoy each moment of every season.

How are you embracing this time of year?
I'd love for you to follow along so you don't miss a post!

  1. Love that picture looking outside. So pretty.

  2. We just had a couple of 60 degree days, and back to rain tomorrow. The house suddenly turned cold tonight. That is a great quote for winter and a nice touch in the white frame. Xo

  3. I too love having pinecones thrown here and there during the Winter months! xo k

  4. I completely agree! I'm more a Summer than a Winter person but each season has its own charm that we must savour! :-) Happy February!

  5. You're so right, I think many of us were in denial about all the cold to come. LOVE those wintry white branches and the river rock in the vase!

  6. Love your winter touches! The pinecones, river rocks and those wintery branches are awesome! ~ Kristin
