Winter Decorating Ideas

Simple and witty or stylish and elegant, our pillows and throws add holiday cheer to any room. Made in a variety of classic colors, they are a fun and easy way to get into the holiday spirit. Soft and comforting, they’re also an ideal excuse to curl up with a good book and spiced apple cider on a cold winter day. A lush throw, draped over the love seat, becomes the focal point of the room. Add an element of intrigue to your bedroom with a handful of decorative pillows in assorted sizes and colors.


With our Pottery Barn holiday bedding and bath collection, you can get many different ideas for transforming a room into a winter wonderland. We have sheets, pillow cases, quilts and other bedding essentials made for this special time of year, ranging from classic white and red items to contemporary plaids, fun sled and reindeer patterns, elegant monogrammed sets and more. If you’re looking to make over your sleeping area, consider starting with soft cotton sheets in a solid color like white or ivory. Make bedtime fun with a cute penguin print pillowcase or add a touch of indulgence with a velvet mattress and pillows.


Our wreaths, which can go inside or outdoors, are an easy and fun way to show your holiday spirit. Make your fireplace the main attraction indoors with a lovely garland, perhaps accented with pine and berries, placed above the mantel. For an extra bit of cheer, add a few candles along the side. You can make the display even more stunning by hanging a wreath above the mantel. Let your spirit shine outdoors with a charismatic reindeer or small Christmas tree topiary, which draws attention to your walkway and can withstand the elements.


As Christmas approaches, holiday stockings and tree skirts become increasingly important. After all, Santa needs someplace to put all those presents. Get a matching set of rich velvet stockings for the family, including your pets. They come in a variety of sizes to match everyone’s age, and you can personalize them with names for a custom finish. Attractive and eye-catching, they make ideal additions to your holiday party theme. Beneath the tree, a tree skirt keeps sharp needles and water out of the way. Make the tree a focal point with a stunning plaid or patchwork skirt or keep it simple with a solid color skirt.


Because holiday entertaining always involves food, you’ll need to make your dining room look ready for the holidays too. Set a white or red runner on the table or cover it with a white cloth to add instant elegance. The stage is set for making the area as simple or elaborate as you want. With a beautiful set of dinnerware, you need little else besides a few candles to make your table look refined and worthy of guests. Dress up the center with a pine-scented garland that adds color and earthen appeal or add a magical touch with a bright candle.


Warm and inviting, decorative lighting brings radiance and cheer to even the coldest and darkest winter days. White string lights add classic elegance to your house, and you can put them indoors or outside. Hanging rain lights bring a contemporary vibe to your entertaining space while colored lights create an atmosphere of fun and relaxation. To keep the glow going, consider getting LED bulbs, which generally last longer than traditional light bulbs. Drape your doorway in tinsel lights for a stunning entrance or add a twinkle to the air with star-shaped lights.


With our holiday decor outdoor collection, you can find just the right decorations to make your house stand out from the neighbors’ homes. Add a lit snowman or reindeer and sleigh accessory to your front walkway for a festive entrance. Wreaths, made of hearty pine or bright berries, withstand the elements and add cheer to your front door. Wrap stair railings with long garlands, to which you can add bells, tinsel and lights, and consider a glamorous glitter tree or angel to give your entrance a regal look.
