Oversized lamps, sunset hues, and all-white kitchens are set to be some of the biggest interior design trends for 2023. However, decorating your home right after the holiday period can be challenging – the Christmas decor may get stored away, but what should go in its place until spring arrives? Fortunately, there’s no need to settle for bare walls and tabletops. A number of simple decor ideas for mid-winter can effectively breathe new life into your home.
Inject pops of color
Vibrant accent pieces can effortlessly inject color and cheer into any room. So, for example, now’s the time to place any colorful ornaments, candlesticks, or vases that may have been put away for the Christmas period out on full display – whether that’s on your kitchen countertops, coffee table, or dining table. Upgrading your bedding with a fresh design is another simple yet effective mid-winter decor idea. Pretty pastels, in particular, are the perfect way to anticipate spring, while vibrant shades will be ideal for summer. And you don’t have to stop there: you can also update the art on your bedroom walls to match your new bedding. This thoughtful detail can really tie the whole room together.
With Christmas decorations out of the way, rooms can naturally feel a little bare. Fortunately, house plants are an easy way to inject vibrancy back into your home. In fact, spending just 20 minutes near a potted plant has been proven to enhance mood and wellbeing, and can therefore help banish winter blues. So, invest in a few low-maintenance winter houseplants for your home; moss orchids, snake plants, and Chinese evergreens are a few hardy, attractive choices. And, if it’s too early for springtime plants and flowers, a green moss wreath can also be a pretty alternative that still reminds you of fresh beginnings. When placing your new green pieces, choose spots that let them catch at least some natural daylight.
Switch up your textiles and drapes
Mid-winter is a great time to upgrade your textiles with fresh designs. So, look through each room in your home for small details ripe for change – rugs, throws, hand towels, and placemats, all included. Updating these minor pieces isn’t a major change, but this simple act can breathe new life into any room. Switching out your drapes is another way to revamp the look and feel of any space. In 2023, fancy curtains are set to be huge – details like triple pinch pleats look elegant and luxurious without being too complicated to hang. Alternatively, sheer gossamer drapes look chic and allow plenty of light to pass through, making them an ideal choice for spring and summer.
Deciding on the right mid-winter decor can be challenging. Fortunately, you can breathe new life into your home with minimal hassle by injecting pops of color, adding houseplants, and switching up your textiles and drapes.
