Old Man Winter is out in full force and most of us are huddled in our homes trying to keep cozy. I try not to make my winter decor too heavy. Instead, I like to use candles and a snuggly throw or two.
Lots of fluffy things to keep you warm on a cold winter’s day!
But more important to me than a knitted throw is plenty of natural light!
The days are short so I try and capture as much daylight as I can. For me, the warmth of the sun is the best way of creating a cozy home. If you look at Scandinavian interiors, the color palette has lots of white to combat the long hours of darkness. In Stockholm, there’s only an average 6 hours of daylight in January. Go slightly further north and the days are even shorter!
The butterfly prints remind me that spring is on the way!
The aqua bottles add the slightest shade of blue – similar to the hue seen in drifts of snow.
If you can layer blankets, why not layer mirrors?
What better way for creating a cozy home than enjoying the warmth of natural sunlight?
A twine bow and a twig of greenery softens this vignette.
It goes without saying, of course, that a smooth glass of wine always helps in making you feel cozy!
I swapped out the tinsel garland bows for twine and raffia to create a more natural look.
More candles, aqua bottles, and worn vintage books. My home has a lot of Scandinavian influence within its walls. For me, Scandinavian style magically captures the light despite the short winter days.
