When you think of winter home décor, your mind probably goes straight to mistletoe and holly. Although that’s valid and beautiful in its own right, don’t overlook the power of dark accent pieces when you’re deciding on a winter look to create a bold effect.
Black or slate grey pieces like rugs, end tables and lamps echo the sky outside, helping to set a dramatic mood in the room. You might also think about dark metal accent pieces such as cast iron or steel to mix up mediums. If you’re worried about the space looking too dark and depressing, remember to balance your decorations out with bright and sunny pieces you love too. Everything in moderation, after all.
The early nights and cold days don’t have to mean that dark decor in the wintertime is off-limits. Experiment with using blacks, metals and greys when you prepare your house for surprisingly elegant winter decorating.
