A New Year
Now that Christmas has come and gone and the decorations are put away for another year, it is time to think about how you want to reorganize your living space. A new year represents a new opportunity to lay your home out in a new fashion, perhaps with a theme that will reflect any new years’ resolutions you have made. As the premier North Delta real estate agency, we would like to offer you some unique and fresh new ideas to get your new year off to a great start.
A Winter Theme
Just because it is the New Year does not mean that winter is on its way out. January has historically been one of the colder winter months. With plenty of winter left on the calendar, why not set your home up in a winter theme?
To get that winter look in your home, think of using snowflakes and cold colours such as blues, grays and whites. Using these colours to accent your bedding or your couch can really transform your home and give off a winter atmosphere. Add in some metallic or turquoise colouring to really set the tone of winter.
Let it Snow!
There may be nothing more synonymous with winter than snow. You can bring this theme to life inside by adding a snowflake theme. Think about adding snowflake print throw cushions to either your living room or your bedroom. Another great touch are inexpensive snowflake decals that you can place on living room or bedroom mirrors. Both of these ideas are a great way to give your home that winter look.
Minimalism can also give off the appearance of winter. Try using a fake tree that only has its branches left to give that winter feel. Add some glitter to a branch to give the appearance of frost and snow to further enhance your winter decor.
Finally, leaving a few winter themed items in and around your home can give that final touch to your winter theme. For instance, a vintage metal sled propped up paired with an old toque and mittens in the entrance way will welcome guests and family alike to a winter wonderland. Another great winter idea can be an over sized pine cone. Spray paint part of the pine cone white to simulate snow and you have a great winter prop for your mantle or entrance way. Finally, instead of putting your Christmas wreath away, maybe think of hanging it above your fireplace for an inviting place to come and warm up during the cold winter months.
Winter is a great time of the year to enjoy the all of the comforts of your home. Why not enjoy a wintry theme in your comfy and cozy house that reflects what is going on outside?
