Decorating my home for the holidays is always a nice way to get into the holiday spirit. But, having to tear everything down on January 1st is no fun! That is why I’m so excited to have Scotties x Genevieve Gorder tissue boxes throughout my home this year. The designs we created are just seasonal enough to add a touch of winter to every room of your home while staying timeless enough to keep out long past the holidays.
Looking for other ways to incorporate winter-themed décor that will last you all season long? I’ve got a few tips to help you out:
The key to decorating for winter – instead of just for the holidays – is being subtle. Find accessories and decorations that create the idea of winter without being too obvious. That is why I love these tissue boxes I designed with Scotties – they have elements of winter but don’t specifically refer to any one holiday. Keep this in mind as you shop for your own seasonal décor!
Nothing makes it feel more like winter to me than birch wood, and birch wood pairs perfectly with green firs. They’re both so symbolic of the season and can add gorgeous texture to anywhere in your home, from your fireplace to a bedroom. Don’t be afraid to experiment with different size greenery so you can get the impact you’re looking for.
Vintage design concepts – like this adorable bird, which I absolutely love! – conjures up feelings of nostalgia and tradition. While these feelings are closely tied to the holidays as you spend time with loved ones, they’re absolutely something I like to be reminded of year-round – or at least all winter long.
Don’t be afraid to use pops of gold and silver! Metals are timeless design elements that can be used in a variety of ways, whether that means via shiny snowflakes, gold accents and more. Just remember to keep it subtle – too much shine can quickly become overwhelming to a space.
