Guest Picks: Wintery Accents to Warm Your Heart
Bring the breathtaking beauty of snow and ice indoors with decor and accessories that conjure the season
The crisp beauty of the snowy season can be brought into your home without adding a chill. Include a few of these lovely winter touches as simple ways to celebrate wintertime and to brighten gray days. — Darlene from Fieldstone Hill Design
This cable-knit pendant lampshade is such a unique and hip way to keep out the chill this winter. I love how it combines two of the coziest home details: a snuggly fabric and warm light. Be warmed!
Bare branches are so beautiful and sculptural, and I love how that is celebrated in this glass-top table. It is gorgeous and has the luxurious feel of art, but it offers an additional practical surface in your home.
These icicles are gorgeous. Hung from a bare branch for decor or accenting a chandelier, they would add a classy touch of winter to the home.
Draped over chairs or tossed on ottomans, sheepskins give a soft, snuggly edge to even the most modern of furnishings. I think these add instant glam to a space, and I love to use them to freshen up older chairs.
This delicately branched gold jewelry tree is so lovely. Although meant for jewelry, I would add it to a mantel as a way to celebrate the stark beauty of winter.
I think an easy way to add a touch of winter to your home is with snuggly white pillows. I like the softness and simplicity of this particular pillow, and I think the lattice pattern could take it year-round. But any snuggly white pillow would do the trick for winterizing your space.
I love the rich and cool look of pale amethyst. This votive holder has the perfect icy feel for adding a touch of winter. And the candle could add a touch of warmth.
Winter is the time for pulling out all of your throws and blankets, adding them to your furnishings and inviting your friends and family to wrap up and stay a while. For me, a faux fur throw is the quintessential way to add comfort while adding glam at the same time.
Add a touch of winter, even in the bathroom. The Perpetual Blooms towel set in neutral is a textured addition to any bath. I believe it is the simple touches, like changing out your bath towels, that really give your home a seasonal change.
I love this fun and glossy white bird table lamp (and its bare branches) for a touch of winter whimsy. The Lucite makes this piece even better.
Although this brass urchin could remind me of the sea, it also reminds me of the coolness of winter, the bareness of branches and the beauty of long icicles. I adore this home accent in the winter, as well as year-round.
This decorative garland, adorned with puffs of white, is the perfect way to fill the post-holiday decorating void. I would stretch out the festive spirit with a garland that reminds me that snowflakes are worth celebrating.
Aren't these wood bowls a gorgeous touch of winter? I love their natural look; they are like works of art to me. I think they would look beautiful filled with walnuts and placed center stage on a coffee table.
White marble, which is stunning year-round, is an amazing way to evoke that winter-white feeling in your home. I love this classy bath accessory set. I can imagine a paperwhite bloom in the cup.
These are perfect for a touch of winter. I think these glass bottle stoppers would make the ideal hostess gift for the holidays and beyond. Winterize your decanters for spirited cold-weather festivities.
I think that the epitome of luxury in the wintertime is curling up with a cashmere throw. And nothing says winter comfort like cable-knit. This gorgeous throw fits the bill.
Crisp, sculptural and white are some of the words I would use to describe winter, and I think these gorgeous stacking boxes would evoke the same image inside your home.
I have always loved the bare and pure look of white birch logs. If you have a nonworking fireplace, filling it with stacks of birch logs is my favorite solution for adding beauty to this problem area.
These handmade glasses are beautiful. Each has its own detailed embellishment sandblasted into the glass. I think they would be perfect filled with eggnog or warm, fruited wine.
The pure shape and matted white color of these urns remind me of a sheet of ice. To add an expanse of winter white in your home, these urns would be most beautiful en masse.
