In the first arrangement, textiles play the main role. A stool cover made of faux fur, a cozy knitted bedspread and a deep-pile rug in neutral gray and powder tones form the perfect background for the macrame winter decoration to hang up. Two Christmas trees in pots add a natural touch and a string of lights brings just the right dose of glamor to the room.

Which decoration in January candles with frost effect

Two scented candles and several lanterns in a frost look: sometimes you don’t need more to bring a touch of cosiness into your own four walls. Our tip: The ensemble is particularly charming if you group lanterns of different heights. Then spray them with frost spray to simulate the look of a frosted glass. The subdued light from the candles relaxes the eyes and creates a pleasant atmosphere.

The end result is a cozy reading corner that increases the feel-good factor in the cold winter months of January and February. Exactly in the Danish hygge style, where comfort is a top priority. The exciting combination of different materials with a nice feel is what makes the decoration for winter so attractive.

The ensemble is ready and you can leave it in the living room all winter long. Even more so – you will also find space for the living Christmas tree in the pot until it can be planted in the garden.

Perfect for this: tea lights with knitted covers provide a subdued light on dull winter days and perfectly underline the hygge living style. Arranged in groups on the coffee table on a tray or well-dosed around the room: the lanterns perfectly convey the Scandinavian feeling of living. Our tip: don’t overdo it. Two or three cozy accessories are okay. But when there are more they make the room look cluttered and chaotic.
