Haute for the Holidays: Luxury Designer Décor Tips

Add Subtle Elements

The winter season is identifiable by various factors and elements. For starters, the colors of winter typically include white and blue, with inclusions of red and green. Opt for splashes of winter colors with blankets, art, and wall items instead of filling up the home with on-the-nose holiday decorations. This is a classy way to bring the peacefulness of winter indoors without the décor appearing to overpower the ambiance of the home.

A bowl of potpourri that includes cinnamon sticks, cranberries, and plant materials is a subtle, visual nod to winter. Place these bowls on counters throughout the house, especially in the kitchen or bathrooms.

Include the Furniture

Decorating a house for the winter includes more than hanging up some lights and decorations—the furniture can join in on the fun while remaining chic and subtle. Purchase festive throw pillows that showcase the season while adding more comfort and coziness to the home. Don't overdo the winter-style pillows, as one-two per room is enough to accomplish seasonal décor.

Swap out seat covers on dining room furniture for more colorful ones, and decorate the table with festive placemats, napkins, top cloths, and a fitting centerpiece for the dining room. Lastly, don't forget to add little decorations on multiple surfaces, including a breakfront, entrance table, and side tables.

Engage Other Senses

Achieving a winter décor isn't all about the sights—four other senses are waiting to be stimulated by a stunning seasonal design. First and foremost is smell, and a winterized home wouldn't be complete without scents of cinnamon, nutmeg, or chestnuts wafting through the halls. Elegant candles, wax melts, and potpourri all provide a seasonal smell.

Next are touch and feel. Swap out thin couch blankets for thick, fluffy ones. These items add to the cozy feeling of the home's décor and encourage the whole family to bundle up in the living room together. For sound, set up a speaker that plays elegant seasonal music at a medium to low volume during certain times of the day.

With these unique ways to seasonally decorate your home, you can confidently bring the beautiful elements of winter into your house without it appearing cheap or cheesy. Ultimately, attention to subtle details is the best way to achieve this décor style.
