Tips For Creating a Seasonal Home

Here's how we're bringing festive feelings to our spaces:

Each year, as the air begins to chill, we can’t help but dream about the holidays ahead.

We love to gather ideas for decking the halls before the chaos of the season kicks in, and this year, we’re looking to our surroundings to find inspiration.

As we redefine our traditions and spaces, we’re focusing on bringing seasonal elements into our homes that feel both celebratory and natural.

Here’s how we’re incorporating warm winter elements to bring festive feelings into our spaces:

1. Bringing the outdoors in.

Layering in natural elements can look like anything from incorporating greenery to adding textural materials like wood tones or displaying artwork that displays a wintery feeling.

We love styling logs by the fireplace, front porch, or even in the mudroom to introduce a seasonal element. Add them to a pretty log holder, pile them in a woven basket, or simply stack them to bring a subtle wintery feeling to your vignette.

Shop wintery accents.

2. Adding holiday accents.

This season, we’re finding new ways to make our homes feel merrier through unexpected celebratory elements. Add festivity to each vignette with textural mini trees, hanging bells, or even styled beads! 

Top tip: Switching out your throws and pillows to more seasonal ones can go a long way, but they don’t have to be embroidered with reindeers and Santa Clause to feel festive. Try incorporating velvet, wool, and knit textures to add a pretty, streamlined look.

"Decorating for the holidays is about balancing big moments like your tree with small moments throughout your home like ornaments in a bowl, decorating your entryway, or adding cheer to your bookshelves."

3. Igniting the senses.

When designing a space, we like to think about our senses and how they ignite through our surroundings. Create a welcoming winter environment by adding ambiance with warm scents, cozy textiles, a calming color palette, and elevated accents.

"The first thing you can do to start making your home feel seasonal is light a candle. I love styling our McGee & Co. candles next to a pretty matchbox and wick trimmer on a console or coffee table to bring visual interest and functionality."
