My Favorite Winter Decor for My Home

The Precious Quality of Winter Light


The quality of light in the wintertime has its own characteristics.


Kitchen Countertop and Wall Shelf

This light affects the shades and moods in the rooms of a home. Outdoors, winter’s palate is a muted combination of whites, browns, greys, golds and greens. I took a few pictures of vignettes of winter decor in my home and created a color palette for each to see what colors appeal to me in the winter. Conclusion, I just love color.

Indoors, I like to complement these colors, which to me bring a sense of serenity and tranquility. There’s a sense of quiet outdoors in winter, save for the cheery, chirpy birds first thing in the morning.

  1. You know, I don’t change the colors in my house from winter to summer but the color clips you showed prove how things change. In the winter, I love the reds and browns – and they are in our house. In the summer I love the reds and pinks – have those too. I like how clear the light is in the winter time.
