10 Winter Decorating Ideas
Groovy, Snowy Silhouette
A graphic designer by trade, RMSer Elizabeth Trunkey takes a decidedly artistic approach to decorating her home. She created this stag-and-bare-branch design on her computer, printed it onto low-tack vinyl and attached it to her fireplace surround for a hip look that's in style all winter long.

Cool Blue Formality
Rate My Space User roberte uses cool colors to create a formal master bedroom sitting area. Located in a 200-year-old Charleston landmark, the room's antiques and restrained style complement the home's original Georgian details.
Strands of mirror tiles and oversize icicles hung from a modern exposed-bulb fixture give a frosty touch to this dining room. Design by Rate My Space user nyclq.

Inexpensive Winter Update
Rate My Space user nyclq knows how to design on a dime. To give this bedroom a winter look, she added inexpensive (just $1 each!) snowflake decals to oval mirrors flanking the bed. Framed black-and-white photos of snowy landscapes complete the look.
Snowy Laundry Room
Snowflakes in the laundry room? You bet! Rate My Space user LaDolfina created a subtle snowstorm by placing several large glittering snowflakes around the space. In her words, "The falling snowflakes make doing the laundry a bit more pleasant."
Minimal, Modern Look
Sheer draperies topped with strands of mirror tiles provide a lovely backdrop for this modern winter vignette. RMSer nyclq placed a single glittered branch in a tall clear vase to create visual impact while complementing the room's minimal look.
Crafty HGTV fan santadreimane gave her chandelier a winter makeover by draping the arms with silk leaves, gold berry sprays and strands of beads. She reports that the whole project cost just $40 with the beads and pearls accounting for half of the budget.
