living room seasonal decor winter

I spent way too much time staring at my rather blah living room trying to decide how I wanted to decorate the space once we settled in our new home. After awhile it hit me that I already had basics in place–a white sofa, a beige armchair, two french bergere chairs and a jute rug. Since I wasn’t going to start over with all new furniture, I decided I would just invest in some decor items that could be changed out seasonally. So while we’re wrapping up winter {and hoping to have signs of spring here very soon!} I thought I would share the room in its “winter” state. I have listed sources at the end of the post if you are curious.




The best part about this game plan is I don’t have to decide on any one color scheme for the room. I could put away the holiday reds {see those in my holiday home tour} and move into some nice whites and grays for winter. After I painted the dark brick on my fireplace and made over the TV console it all worked together nicely during the colder winter months.



I made some changes to our hallway console table too, using my Lyndsey Letters print from the holidays in a new spot, and I today I am making new lampshades for the lamps–a long overdue improvement that I can’t wait to finish and show-off.





I updated this console recently to downplay the 90’s beadboard, you can see that HERE.












I am just beginning to update the room for spring–shopping for it has been fun and I’ll share that soon. In the meantime,  I hear parts of the country are warming up today, so if you are lucky enough to live in those areas please enjoy it for me. We still have entirely too much snow on the ground here in Virginia for my taste!

  1. Such a pretty room. I love, love,love the colors – mix of fabrics and the texture. Very well done.

  2. Some very lovely pieces here. It will be fun to see your new lampshades!

  3. Gorgeous room! Such a pretty space and I am in love with all of your decor!

  4. Such a most beautiful room with such a sense of calm and warmth. Just love your neutral background and the winter grays. Hope your snow goes away soon…We had a glorious weekend with temps in the high 60’s…and we are having a bit of a warm up next week with no freezing temps. 🙂

  5. What a gorgeous room. Can’t get over how wonderful the molding breaks up the huge walls, so beautiful. What paint color did you use on the walls, it’s lovely in the pictures.

    • Hi Susanne,

      Thank you so much, the color is still the builder cream/white. It is a nice neutral thought so we’re keeping it for now. Thanks for your kind words!
