Guest Blogger: Wintery Touches

Hello, everyone! It's Mari from Arcadian Home blog, a wonderful place to find great home decor inspirations. I'm so excited to be visiting here at Talkative *TLC today. It's that time of year again--time to warm up interior spaces with special wintery touches.

I've brought along eight ideas for adding warmth and cold weather appeal to most any style room--traditional, vintage or contemporary. Please enjoy!

Wintery Touches
Yes, I'll admit it. I think this dining room is perfect for any season. But, just a few touches make it something special for wintertime living. What says warm and appealing more than sheepskin? Draped over these wood chairs, it's fabulous. Add branches and a colorful rug and the space is set for winter fun.

This gorgeous setting is for a wedding, but wouldn't it also be spectacular for a New Year's Eve dinner party? Mismatched glass pendant lights hung low above the table are so glamorous. I love the furs thrown across the chair backs.

The fireplace is often the focal point of a winter living or great room, especially when the mantle is overflowing with special touches. Here, silvery pots of forced spring bulbs are beautiful surrounded by glowing candles and rustic pine cones.

A single wintery touch can chase away the cold. A large and sumptuous fur rug adds warmth and texture to this living room.

Even a white on white room can feel cozy with the addition of a touch of winter white like this cozy rug in front of the sofa. I love the tiny pop of color from the wall sconce.

A stylish bedroom gets a wintery makeover with bedding in an unexpected pattern. We often associate birds with springtime, but these showy cardinals perched on red berry-laden branches are perfect for the winter season.

Knitted accents and bedding are the only winter touches this eclectic bedroom needs—so warm and inviting.

Lighted candles and fireplace are iconic wintery touches, but bring them into the bath and they become even more special. Images 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8

Thank you for these great ideas on how to add a Wintery Touch to the home, Mari! I have to admit, I have not been very good about switching out decor items for seasons in our small condo. But it's something I've always loved to see at my parent's home - the change in artwork, curtains, and general decor to add a wintery feel. It is something I am truly looking forward to. I just love the sheepskin rug additions and knitted accents you've suggested.

If you're interested in writing a guest post for Talkative*TLC, I would love to hear from you!
