There’s no denying it: winter is upon us. As much as we dream about falling snow and sledding, the reality of the colder months can be terrible. We’re talking brutal winds, chapped, lips and freezing toes. 'Tis the season we spend the most of our time indoors, so why not think of buying some holiday gifts for your home? After all, you're gonna be spending plenty of time there in the coming months.
That's why it's especially important to truly love the space you’re in right now. Still, creating a wonderful winter aesthetic doesn’t have to mean a massive overhaul or a major budget. It can be as easy as adding a few new, beautiful pieces to already-existing collection. Think cozy throws, adorable pillows, warm candles and of course, a place to set your favorite drink. (Hot chocolate? Or something a wee bit stronger – spiked eggnog, anyone?)
To help you out, we’ve teamed up with H&M to help you find the best pieces to amp up your décor – so you’ll actually look forward to spending a bunch of time at home this winter.
1. Light Up Your Life With Some Chic Candles
With the days getting shorter and
the nights getting longer, we could all use a little more light in our lives.
Candles add a certain charm and coziness to pretty much every living space.
This winter, make sure to treat yourself – and your home – to one of these
fragrant and fancy-looking options. Whether you go for a geometric design, an adorable tea light
holder, or a bold glittery version, any of these options will make you actually want to head
home after work. You can light a candle, pour yourself a glass of wine, put on your flannel
pajamas, and set the mood.
2. Curl Up With A Cozy Blanket
Can you think of anything better
than reading a great book, or watching your favorite holiday
movie (shout out to Love, Actually!)
while curled up in one of these bad boys? We sure
can’t. A throw blanket will add a fabulous touch to your living
room. Not to mention, they're sure to keep you warm all through the rest of the winter months.
3. Throw In Some Throw Pillows
If you’re looking to step up your
décor game without going broke, invest in a couple of throw pillows. Not only do they add a nice quirky touch to your
existing furniture, they can easily be changed out each season. Whether
you choose the faux fur version or go for a metallic deer option, you’ll
look forward to putting these on your couch for many more holiday seasons to
4. Pass The Bar (Cart)
It’s easy to get sucked into a routine of Netflix, junk food, and solitude during the winter. This year, make a genuine effort to invite your friends over for
a fun holiday party. It’s a great way to catch up with your nearest and
dearest while keeping warm indoors. Whether you already have a bar cart, or
you want to set up an impromptu drinks station, these bar
accessories can help spruce things up. Also, this adorable tea towel will come in
handy when someone (inevitably) spills their drink during one of your soirées.
