Wintry treats for your home

Create a winter wonderland at home with crisp, cool accessories that sing out White Christmas and remind you of powdery wintry landscapes whilst you are cosy inside. 

I love styling the home for each season, changing the accessories and colour schemes but winter is absolutely the best to put together - items to make you want to hiberate and look out at the cold, frosty world whilst you sit by a roaring fire.

 Key items like an Eames chair from Nest.co.uk are an all year round piece of furniture but don't they remind you of little toboggans. Then I think the sheep cushion - Winter Crossing would look really cute on it with a festive tapestry cushion from Next, a little rocking whilst reading a book and perhaps cover up with a throw by John Lewis, very pretty with the snowflakes on it. 

Snow in Love Yankee Candle is one of my favourite scents to fill the home with the sweet smell of winter and a Moomin tealight holder that has little characters from the series that turn around under the heat of the flame is crying out to have  home with me, such a bargain too from Northlight and would make a sweet Christmas gift (if you could bear to part with it!). 

For some Christmas decorating I adore the cute brass tree decs with their smiley faces, Danish design always so trendy. Then a Swedish brass basket for all those logs to chuck on the fire would look very smart or even look great as storage for blankets and books. 
Winter is great for all the extra light sources you can fill your home with, candles, fairy lights and lanterns - the one shown is from Ikea who excel at pretty tealight holders - always nice to have a light flickering in the window on the early dark evenings to welcome guests. Remember doorways need winter sprucing too and a cheap and cheerful doormat from eBay will do the job. 

Dainty accessories complete a winter scheme - some porcelain chiming bells  for the tree or hung from branches in a vase and a bowl that caught my eye with its gold spots and star shape. 

Do you have a favourite season to style your home for?
