Coziest Winter Decorating Ideas

Montecito Christmas Susan Pate

Friends at Better Homes & Gardens have rounded up a selection of stylish winter decorating ideas that are filled with cozy touches. 


Focus on Hearth

As temperatures dip lower, bring your focus inward by rearranging your furniture. If you have a fireplace, pull pieces in toward the center of the room and face them near the hearth to create a cozy gathering spot for winter entertaining. Plush fabrics and upholstery add warmth even without a roaring fire.

Lux Look

Luxe Looks

Give your bedroom a quick style update and prepare it for the season by layering in textured bedding, throws, and pillows. Winter room decor—like this luxurious velvet throw and soft faux fur bed pillows—turn a bedroom into a cozy refuge from harsh winter winds.

Reflective State

With the shorter days, it's time to maximize what natural light is still available. Hanging a large mirror on a blank stretch of wall or above a mantel display will reflect light throughout your space. Turn the mirror into a decorative display by painting the frame an eye-catching color, or opt for the simplicity of winter white decor.

Pillow Panache

Layer in a few extra throw pillows for a quick winter style update. Playful patterns stand out against dark wood flooring and a lush velvet sofa in this cozy living room. Choose accent pillows in colors and patterns that match your existing decor to ensure you don't have to make any more decor adjustments. A cozy throw completes the look.
