In Between Seasons Décor, From Winter To Spring!

Feb 21, 2018

Post-Christmas winter is a bit of a grey area for decor. You still want to be cozy and warm, but Spring is on the horizon so you don’t want to feel, well, too hot and boxed in come April. February is a fantastic time to embrace the Danish design concept of Hygge! It translates as a feeling of contentment and coziness, and it’s a great source of inspiration for between-seasons decor. Hygge style can bring warmth to your home in the darkest months of the year, without being overbearing or inappropriate for Spring. Timbercreek brings you this simple list of ways to keep your space cozy and delightful as the seasons change.

Bask in the Glow

The lighting in your home can make a huge difference in the intimacy and warmth of the space. Natural light is ideal for daytime, while adding a cozy glow at night can be very comforting. Try to have multiple light sources in every room -- aim for a handful. Use a mix of table lamps, floor lamps, task lamps, and overhead lighting. Warmer light bulbs offer the coziest ambience.

Comforting Mementos

Increase the comfort factor in your space with your favorite photos of loved ones, antiques, or art that inspires you. Everything from special mementos to simple things that make you smile add charm.

Textures

One of the best ways to warm up a space is by incorporating a variety of different textures. Incorporate different touch-worthy materials like pillows, drapery, throw blankets, rugs, lamps, and furniture. Velvet, woven, knit, embroidered, grain sack, faux fur, tweed: the sky’s the limit. If you want to easily transition the look from winter to spring, stick mainly to neutrals but add a touch of bright colour here and there.

A Cozy Nook

Make yourself a special cozy place to relax in your space. Couches and sofa chairs can be tucked into an inviting corner, alongside some good books in a basket, a warm lamp, a footstool, side table, and a soft blanket. A space like this is great to retreat to year-round.

Add Some Life

A room comes to life with the addition of an organic element. Every room can benefit from a plant, bouquet of flowers, or even a sprig of greenery like eucalyptus. Read more here.
