Have you ordered your coffee extra hot recently?
Woken up to a slight chill in the morning air?
Have you seen any fluffy white flurries blow through your town?
Have you had to slip into a warmer sweater or jacket for your evening out?
Maybe you live in a typically colder climate and have already spotted your first snowman.
If you have, it can only mean one thing… Old Man Winter has officially blown into town. Especially for those of us who typically experience chillier months in December, January and February every year.
In the Northern Hemisphere, the arrival of winter is heralded by the winter solstice, which occurs on December 21 at 10:27 PM ET this year in 2023. Winter will be hanging around until March 19, 2024, and during those 3 brief months, there are so many splendid things to enjoy with family and friends. Though the weather can be a bit “frightful” at times, the beauty of winter is always “delightful”.
And there’s no better way to experience the joy of winter, without its chilling effects, than with home decor that captures the essence of the season. Winter-themed decor can infuse any living space with the comfy, cozy aesthetic of snowy wonderlands, frost-tipped forests, jolly snowmen, beautiful forever-lasting perennials and holiday treasures to get you ready for Christmas.
The Gift Experts at The Bradford Exchange are thrilled to share today’s post, especially if this is your favorite time of the year. And guess what? You don’t even need to slip on a sweater or a coat to feel its inspiration. Though the temperature may go down outside, it will always be warm inside your home (and heart) with Winter Ambience: Our Top 2024 Winter Decor Picks.
