Winter Warmth

For extra winter solstice vibes, adding in starry constellation inspiration makes one of the longest nights of the year a little cozier.

Find a Way to Light the Fireplace

The holidays draw attention to the fireplace and the mantel, as a beautiful focal point. If your mantel doesn’t surround a working fireplace, light it up with gorgeous twinkle lights or candles to create your own glow.

Serene Palette

Blue and gold have a magical feel around the holidays, with sage green offering a subtler alternative to the standard hunter green of most holiday celebrations.

Instead of red, pink has a rosy hue that softly balances the lighter green for a non-traditional holiday color palette.

Sweater Stockings

Cable knit stockings in creamy white are hung by the mantel, adding the warmth of an oversized sweater. With neutral stockings, you can easily add yarn tassels in each year’s color theme to dress them up.

Square Wreath

Sew your own art with a ribbon and some window screen, decorate the edges with eucalyptus to make a pretty, unique wreath.

DIY Constellations

Black and white photographs get a glittering celestial addition with stick on rhinestones and metallic permanent marker constellations.

Add Lights to Small Greenery Too

For a little bit of greenery, fragrant eucalyptus shines with a battery-operated set of twinkle lights tucked within.

Create a Time Capsule

Upcycle a vintage book into a tiny scrapbook to hold favorite holiday cards, and create a guest book for friends to sign each year. After a few years it will hold so many memories!

Hang the Stars High

For a temporary sparkle, use a small tension curtain rod across a doorway to show off a few favorite ornaments overhead.

Add Sunny Sparkle for Winter Days

For a fun sparkle in the bedroom add a gold glittery backdrop behind the bed to channel a starry glow when the lights are low.

Pile It On

To solidify the wintery vibes, double up on texture in your bedding. A warm and cozy velvet duvet layers beautifully with a blush sweater-style blanket, especially paired with crisp white pillows and sheets.
