And if you succumbed to these natural tones, we have the right interior for you! Because furniture and accessories in white, blue, brown and metallic tones look cozy and cool!

Winter decoration for windows & tables

If a snowstorm causes cold winter weather outside, we have to make ourselves all the more comfortable in our own four walls. Let’s start with table design. For example, hang small paper tags on a winter bouquet. Small candles create a warm atmosphere at the table. If you want, you can also decorate small cones or balls on the table runner for the table decoration.

In addition to beautiful table decorations, decoration in the window can emphasize the special atmosphere of the season. DIY: For decoration in winter, for example, paper stars in white are suitable, which can be dangled from the window frame in different lengths on a cord. The decorative stars can have different patterns and still remain discreetly in the background thanks to their neutral color. If you want, you can hang the star in autumn, because they are also good as autumn decorations! Discover even more ideas for window decorations at Christmas!

Our tip: A shining LED star can result in a pretty decoration in the window, which will delight young and old. This is how you live for Christmas!

Winter decoration with flowers & balls

Did you think flowers are a nice decoration only in spring and summer? We definitely see it differently. In the video, Westwing founder Delia Fischer reveals how you can create a beautiful winter decoration with flowers yourself!

Another nice DIY idea to make yourself is a decoration with beautiful Christmas baubles. These can also be nicely staged under a glass bell!

Winter decoration for garden & balcony

To emphasize the character of the cold season, it can also be decorative to provide the balcony or garden with a few accessories. If it gets dark in the afternoon, a string of lights can form a bright highlight. For example, wrap a luminous star chain around the balcony railing or decorate a tree in the garden or the terrace with it. Decoration in the garden can also be useful: for example, place a bird feeder outside.

Comfortable lighting for the dark season

If it gets dark early in the morning, it is particularly important to integrate sufficient light sources into the decoration. Yellow light creates a particularly cozy atmosphere, while white light appears cool. Since we focus on comfort in winter and prefer to provide a modern look with puristic decoration, we advise you to use warm light sources.

Our tip: No light is more beautiful than the glow from burning candles. Spread out different candles in your home and light up the rooms with the warm candlelight. Scented candles spread a winter mood that bring an extra dose of cosiness to your home.

DIY: Make winter decorations

The decoration can be easily made by yourself and can also be designed well with children. In this way, the little ones are integrated into the decoration process, can live out their imagination and are sure to have a lot of fun.

Have your children fold and cut out paper stars, for example, which are then used in the children’s room for winter window decorations. Lanterns can be filled with artificial snow and snowflakes before placing a candle on them. Finds from nature can also be used to make winter decorations. We will show you how best to implement this individual decoration!

Decoration with finds from nature:

  1. tip

    Collect fine branches, pine cones and nuts on your next winter walk.

  2. tip

    Spray the finds with decorative paints in white, silver and gold and let them dry.

  3. tip

    Use the winter decoration as a creative element for a beautiful table decoration. Designed on a table runner or together with artificial snow in large decorative glasses, this creates a wintry atmosphere in the dining room.

Christmas decoration with advent wreath

Christmas decorations are of course a central element in winter. An advent wreath with pretty candles shouldn’t be missing in any home for us. The decoration becomes individual and personal when you make it yourself. Decorate your Advent wreath with small cones, fairy lights and balls, for example. If you want, you can decorate the wreath with artificial snowflakes.

Fairy lights and baubles are generally a nice idea for Christmas decorations. In principle, you can decorate your entire apartment with it. Decorations with cones also look great on the window. How about a DIY for Christmas? For example, make beautiful paper cones with your children and paint them white. A nice decoration for young and old! This creates a homely atmosphere in the apartment!

Puristic winter decoration

Winter decorations do not have to be cheesy, we also have the right home accessories for you for a puristic living style at WestwingNow. Rely on reduced forms with clear lines and instead distance yourself from playful decorative objects. Winter deco looks plain without glitter, such as simple paper stars, a filigree chain of lights or fine porcelain figures.
