Vintagecore Vibes

New trends often borrow from old ones, and this one is no different – vintage is officially in again! Vintagecore, also called “grandmacore,” evokes warmth, comfort, and cherished memories from times spent with loved ones (namely, grandma). Incorporate vintage textiles, floral patterns, and handcrafted pieces to capture the essence of grandma’s house.

Cozy Textures

It’s hard to think about winter décor without thinking about ways to make your home cozier. It’s time to bring out the chunky knit blankets, plush velvet pillows, and faux fur throws to add warmth (literally!). Bouclé furniture is a recent trend that uses a soft and cozy fabric with an interesting texture for a modern, luxurious look without sacrificing comfort.

Natural Elements

Infuse your home with the beauty of nature (minus the cold) by integrating natural elements into your décor. Use woven baskets and earthenware pottery to hold blankets, floral arrangements, and other items. Elevate your décor displays with wood rounds and stone trays, adding depth and dimension. Allow the elements of nature to inspire you with their rustic charm and natural elegance.

Earthy Hues

Create a calming and tranquil retreat this winter season by embracing earthy hues like warm terracotta and soothing sage green. Use these natural tones reminiscent of sun-kissed clay and winter foliage to paint an accent wall, or simply swap out the pillows and throws. Sometimes a new color palette is all you need to freshen up a space and infuse a touch of holiday cheer.

Layered Lighting

We lose some of our optimal natural lighting as the days grow shorter and the nights longer. Create a balanced and inviting ambiance with layered lighting throughout the home. Start with soft overhead lighting, then add accent lighting using holiday décor at varying heights. Reserve brighter, focused lighting for areas where it’s needed, such as for reading, working, or cooking.

Sustainable Décor

Take cues from nature to create affordable and sustainable winter décor. Forage for pinecones, berries, twigs, and evergreen branches to make floral arrangements, garlands, and handmade ornaments. Repurpose spare groceries, such as oranges, cranberries, grapefruit, and apples, to make festive, dried fruit garlands. Hang them over doorways, fireplaces, mantels, windows, and more.

Mindful Minimalism

Use a minimalistic eye when decorating for a home that will be on the market, and choose décor that has meaning to you. Remember that buyers (or renters) may have different preferences and holiday customs and could be overwhelmed by a lot of holiday enthusiasm. Opt for thoughtful décor pieces that focus more on the spirit of the season than on a specific holiday.
