Cozy Winter Decor Ideas to Refresh Your Home in 2024

Decorating your home for the winter season includes more than red poinsettias, twinkling string lights, and festive stockings on the mantle. Now that your holiday-themed home decor pieces are finally all packed away, you may be looking for inspiration to refresh your space while still keeping the holiday season’s cozy vibes. To help plan your next winter redecorating project, we’ve compiled a list of simple winter-focused tips to refresh your home until we welcome spring!

Winter Scents ©X-tina
Savor Holiday Scents All Winter Long

One of the most prominent ways to subtly embrace holiday nostalgia in your winter decor is to incorporate the featured scents of the season throughout your home. Pine, cinnamon, vanilla bean, and cardamom are among the most popular during that time of year, and there are many more you can include. Stock up on candles, aromatherapy oils, and diffusers so these cozy scents don’t fade from your home.

Refresh Seating Areas with New Throw Pillows

A new set of throw pillows in fresh colors and patterns will refresh any room in your home. Shop for pillows in various shapes and sizes to give the room an intentionally designed look. Not only do throw pillows brighten the space, but it makes it feel warmer and more comfortable. Consider adding a pillow or two that incorporates the popular holidays of the month, like Valentine’s Day and St. Patrick’s Day, for a fun way to keep your home decor current during the next few months.

Create an Indoor Houseplant Nursery

There is nothing more satisfying than watching plants thrive during the winter months. You don’t need to be a master gardener to create an indoor houseplant nursery. First, research which plants grow well in your city’s climate to save time and money on rebuying plants that may dry out. Next, figure out which houseplants are the best option for you. String of Hearts, Jade Plants, Air Plants, ZZ Plants, and Snake Plants are among the most popular medium-sized, low-maintenance houseplants to grow. Beautiful trailing plants like English Ivy and Monstera Adansonii add depth and dimension to your mantle, bookcase, or even your curtain rod! Taller plants like Fiddle Leaf Fig and Bird of Paradise are great to place in the corners of a room to construct a living focal point and draw the eye upward, making the space appear larger and full of life.

Incorporate New Accessories

Upgrading your winter home decor accessories is another excellent way to refresh your space! A thoughtfully placed set of books, a magazine rack, or a coffee table bowl makes your home feel more welcoming and intentional. If your home includes custom built-ins, then decorating the open shelves is an essential design choice for that room. Built-ins provide extra storage and make an otherwise vacant area fully functional.

A few more ideas for new home accessories include:
Integrate cozy pieces like fuzzy throw blankets and pillows so your space feels more like home.
Update your flower vases to more unique designs, and hang colorful wall art to brighten any room and add warmth to the space.
Incorporate new light fixtures and lamps, and use energy-saving LED lightbulbs to accentuate your design style and bring the wow factor to your new home.

Declutter Your Space

As a rule of thumb, to make your home appear larger, refreshed, and organized, a clean environment is a must-have! Ditch last year’s worn-out or broken decor pieces for new items that showcase your style and personality. Choose one room or area every few days to declutter to take it one step at a time. Having a clean home allows you to take pride in your space without needing to buy new items.
