Don’t let the cold temperatures and gray skies get you down. With these simple touches, you can cozy up in style in your living room this winter.
First and foremost, consider you color palette. Generally, it’s a good idea to keep bright vibrant colors for the spring and summer and swap in some muted or richer tones for the winter. I personally like the rich, warm colors in fall and then I transition to soft muted colors for winter. This year, I brought the blush pink and gray in for Christmas and it has remained part of my decor as I transition out of the holidays.
Add Warmth and Coziness Through Texture
Now is the time to go overboard with throw pillows and blankets! Don’t be afraid of faux fur, velvet, chenille or other textures that you may not usually gravitate towards.

Add Ambience With Candles and Fairy Lights
We all love candles at every time of the year but now is the perfect time to really get that cozy feel with candles. Pick your scent wisely and you’ll also wake up your senses! Another great way to get this soft light effect is by using fairy lights. Place them in lantern, hurricane or other vase for a wonderful glow.
Bring The Outdoors In
Whether it’s flowers, plants or tree clippings, bringing some greenery to your living room this winter. Not only do these natural elements help ground your space, but the touch of green adds a nice contrasting color.

Scale Back and Keep it Minimal
With the New Year, most of us get a sense a wanting to purge, organize and clean. So why not embrace that feeling with your decor, too? Keep it simple with just a few items to create nice vignettes but an uncluttered look. The cleaner color palette will also help you achieve this look.
