Pin Away Wednesdays: Embracing Winter Wonders

Ideas for embracing all the beauty and wonder of winter. Enjoy comforts indoors and the beauty of nature in winter

 

Happy Wednesday! It’s time for another post in my “Pin Away Wednesday” series. Last week I introduced this fun series where I will be sharing highlights each week from one of my many Pinterest boards. Since it’s January and winter weather seems to be hitting lots of areas hard this week, I thought it would be the perfect time for sharing my Winter Wonders board. Here is where I pin everything from cozy winter interior decor ideas, to lovely winter nature scenes, and ideas for fun winter activities.

In my opinion winter is greatly overlooked in the interior decorating world.  A lot of people just seem to hate winter in general simply because it’s cold or because of difficulty with travel in bad weather. Now I am not a fan of cold either, but I actually enjoy winter and I love snow, at least in December through mid-February. Once those daffodils start  peaking through the ground, spring fever sets in! Nevertheless, I do try to savor all the beauty of comforts winter has to offer. I always try to make the best of it and look for all the positives in the season.

For most of us, the fall decorating extravaganza begins in late August and evolves into the holiday extravaganza which lasts until New Year’s Day. After all the non-stop activities and colorful and festive decor, my mind, body, and soul craves a more neutral and peaceful home environment. Winter is the perfect time to declutter and deep clean our homes (and our hearts and minds) and just enjoy the comforts and warmth of home.

 

You know what I’m all about? Simple decorating ideas! Sometimes Jose and I will be talking about things to make and do around the house & we will always say.. “oh, that’s not worth sharing.” or “No one will care about that.” But lately we have been saying… “maybe someone needs to read that.” or …

Neutral interiors are calming and reflect the landscape which is overall neutral in winter except for the beauty of evergreens and some seasonal plants. Shades of white, cream, taupe and gray are perfect choices for textiles, while evergreens can add a touch of color, texture, and interest.

January has a stillness that my soul long longs for after all the busyness of the fall and the holidays. It is the perfect time for just being still. Sipping tea and reading a favorite book or magazine while snuggled under a cozy blanket is the quintessential indoor activity to savor. In recent years the concept of Hygge has become all the rage, and winter is the perfect time to embrace this Danish art of cozy living.

In addition to neutral textiles and evergreens, natural elements such as pine cones, birch logs and antlers are perfect accents.

The magic of winter doesn’t end with Christmas…it is just beginning! Decorating with snowmen is a great way to transition from Christmas to winter. After all, playing in the snow is a winter-long activity if you are a lucky kid who lives in an area with lots of snow!
