Hot Winter Decorating Trends

Posted on Dec 23, 2013

Winters in Santa Barbara and Montecito may not bring snow, but with this season’s hottest decorating trends, you can add a touch of winter glamor to your home. Try these easy ideas to liven up your home for the holidays.

  • Go for a Nordic look on your mantle with a minimalist display in silver, white and blue. Try blue candles in silver candlesticks mixed with white pillar candles next to a crystal bowl of blue Christmas ornaments. It’s a look that will work all winter.
  • Cut the sleeves off an old sweater and use them to cover vases. Fill the vases with willow branches for a rustic, wintry look.
  • Turn a tea trolley into a festive holiday cart for drop-in guests. Drape a creamy cloth across the top and artfully arrange spiced and sparkling cider, colorful mugs and stemware, pretty biscuits and cookies, and festive candy mints across the top. Add a few sprigs of holly for a natural feel.
