Winter Decorating Tips and Ideas

Winter is here in Pembroke Pines, FL! Bring the beauties of the season into your home here at Azure Villas by incorporating these winter decor ideas into your decorating.

Choose a decorating scheme.

Having an idea of what you want your home to look and feel like is the first step toward making it look unified. Your idea can serve as your guide because a theme will carry with it certain color schemes to follow, textures to look for, and specific items to decorate with. For example, if you choose a winter wonderland theme, you should gravitate toward colors like whites and blues for main colors and light browns and silvers for accents.

Keep it cozy.

While your decorations might remain icy, you want to make sure that you feel comfortable in your home! Keep your home warm, cozy, and energy-efficient by trying some hacks: Switch out lighter curtains for heavy drapes to absorb the cold from the windows. Add a humidifier to your apartment (humid air feels warmer than dry air), and keep that air where you can feel it by turning ceiling fans on low, going the opposite direction to push the hot air that rises down.

And have a few thick blankets that go with your decorations on hand. One hack to maximize your warmth with blankets is to keep fluffy blankets closest to you and thin, dense blankets on top to prevent convective heat loss. We also suggest you opt for softer, fluffy fabrics to offset the coolness that comes with the brighter tones or lighter fabrics to lighten up a room that’s weighed down by darker colors.

Get crafty.

Winter is a classic time to bust out your craft supplies and have some fun being creative. Making a craft is not only a fun way to bond with people of all ages, but it’s also an inexpensive way to add personalized masterpieces to the decor of your home. Crafts can be as ornate or simple as you wish them to be. Some classic ideas include paper snowflakes and homemade ornaments. If you want to try something new, we suggest this evergreen candle from Better Homes & Gardens, a garland of your favorite seasonal plants, or this fish bowl snowman from Smart School House.
