The living room is the most peaceful place in my home. It’s the one room that is kept free of toys and clutter. I turn on the fireplace each morning, curl up in the recliner, sip my coffee and look out at the snow. Wisconsin winters are long and cold, but made better with warm lights, cozy pillows and indoor plants. I added warmth to my cozy winter living room decor with a rustic winter bouquet and personalized throw pillows.
I browsed over 100 pillows available on Shutterfly and selected two designs that fit our rustic decor. I was able to personalize them for our family. One- and two-sided designs are available. The Rustic Family Name Pillow and Woodgrain Monogram Pillow are comfortable additions to our lounge space. Aren’t they welcoming?
When we were house hunting, a fireplace was on our list of “wants.” We decided on a home that met all of our needs, but missed a few “wants.” My fabulous mother-in-law found an electric fireplace at a rummage sale. I refinished it to match our rustic end tables and it now serves as the focal point of our living room.
Decorating the fireplace mantle is one of my favorite seasonal endeavors. After we took down our holiday decor, there was empty space to fill. I found the perfect rustic milk jug at my local craft store. There are many winter arrangement options, but I settled on something one might see in a snowy Wisconsin landscape. Bonus: when my kids eventually knock this over, artificial plants are heartier!
Red winter berries are a nice pop of color. Drape garland across the mantle, add a few pinecones and you’ll have extra warmth.
I used a scissors to separate the branches and cut them to appropriate length for the milk jug. Do the same with the grasses. Frosted grasses provide height and interest to the space.
I look forward to spring, but this cozy winter living room decor will keep me warm for the season. I’d love to hear your ideas – what would you include in a winter floral arrangement? Which pillow would you choose?
