It’s hard to believe that winter is on the way since fall barely got here, but whether we like it or not, it’s quickly approaching. At Half Price Drapes, we’ve compiled some of our favorite tips to help you decorate for winter. Read on to learn more and then check out our blackout curtains that offer incredible energy efficiency in cooler months.
Add new color in bursts
Instead of saturating a room with colors perfect for winter, just pick a few bold pieces to do the trick. They can be swapped out later and instead of having to change an entire room, you’ll have just a few pieces to change. Winter colors tend to focus on whites, creams, reds, and greens.
Let nature inspire you
What is it like outside your home in winter? In some parts of the country it’s a white winter wonderland, where other areas don’t see a speck of snow but are used to brown grass. Use pieces that mimic what’s happening outside your window. This may include a wreath with fall leaves, feathers to decorate walls and remind you of migrating birds, or vases with winter-happy flowers in them.
Embrace your whimsical side
Whether you have kids or not, why not decorate with playful, season-appropriate decorations? You may think of witches and skeletons for Halloween, but why not add some beautiful cornucopias for Thanksgiving, and work holiday decorations in for later in the winter. You don’t have to go over the top, but a whimsical piece here and there can make your home look much more lively and inviting.
Don’t be afraid to paint
You likely don’t want to paint your walls each season, but you can take old décor you used to love and give it a new coat of paint. Metals, grays, and neutrals are all in style this year but choose colors you particularly like. You can even take fall decorations, like pumpkins and acorns, and paint them to match winter décor.
Pull out your winter curtains
You don’t need to change your curtains every season, but choosing heavier drapes for winter can help reduce your heating costs, make your home warmer and cozier, and can signify that winter is upon us. Half Price Drapes offers a wide range of options. Stop by our site and choose made-to-order or custom curtains. Either way, you’ll end up with draperies that are designed to impress.
