Softer Side of Winter…

arhaus living roomWell it’s been way too long since I’ve shared with you all here! It’s a new year, with new goals and new dreams of cozy spaces! As much as I love decorating for the holidays, there is something truly inspiring about clearing it all away and starting with a blank slate especially at the beginning of a new year.

In south Florida, we don’t experience a true Winter, but we still have our share of colder days, gloomy skies and lots of wind. And even though there isn’t snow on the ground outside, I still like to decorate like there is. (or at least the Florida version).

I recently visited Arhaus, and if you have never been, I highly recommend you stop in. Seriously so much to love! I’ve been gathering some decor ideas for our home and think this space is just prefect for the lighter side of Winter. Warm whites, a few fur accents, a chunky knit blanket and a few candles for a super cozy space. So much to swoon over.

arhaus fur throw

The time of year I love to bring in the softer textures of cozy wool throws and chunky knits. Couldn’t you just see yourself wrapped up in this one!?! A good cuppa, a great book, a cozy fire (or candles) and I know I’d be set. I always like to start with a white palette and depending upon the time of year will bring in additional neutral shades. Winter time for me is the perfect time to incorporate soft shades of grey, taupe and gold accents.

arhaus slipcovered sofa

My favorite go to…a beautiful slip covered sofa. I’ve had my sofa and chair for many years now and believe it or not, the white is easier to maintain than you think. Kids, dog, cat and all.  Comfortable, casual elegance is what I am always going for and for me this works for my home. Any accent pillow or throw I add to it pops against the white and just looks so pretty.

I love a little sparkle especially in the Winter months where even down south we have plenty of gloomy days. A little shimmer here and there can really brighten up a space. I love, love this charming accent pillow!

arhaus bed linenMy two favorite places to cozy up in, the living room and the bedroom. So loving this bedding with just the right amount of ruffle (for me anyway). I’d add a pretty fur throw blanket ( like the yummy one above) to the mix for a bit more warmth and a cozier feel. It might make it a bit more difficult to pull myself out of bed each morning though.

Seriously beautiful and so loving this gorgeous finish. I love that it’s a great size with simple but charming accents.

arhaus rugI tend to add a lightly patterned area rug and keep my bedding simple. A few accent pillows and pretty decor pieces around the room are all I need.

arhaus bedroomWhat are your go tos for the Winter months? I guess it all depends on where we live and what the weather brings. I think no matter where I may live though, I will always keep things simple. A few natural elements, warm throw blankets, cozy lighting and a bit of sparkle.

I hope this inspired you to lighten things up a bit. Even in the colder months we can still enjoy the softer side of Winter. I’d just love to hear how you decorate for the Winter months! Feel free to stop in and share your ideas.

Thanks so much for stopping in!
