Decorating Ideas From Transitional Assisted Living in Cincinnati Ohio

Cozy winter decor for the chilly months!


The holiday season has come and gone, but the chilly weather hasn’t! And just because the twinkling holiday decor has come down, that doesn’t mean you have to deal with a drab living space all winter. Soft faux fur throw blankets, an extra fluffy duvet and comforter, and some creative crafting are some of our favorite strategies for freshening up your space this winter.

Here at Central Parke Memory Care & Transitional Assisted Living, we love to dive into the cozy seasons. For you and your loved ones, it’s easy to decorate for winter and dive into the hygge vibes of winter. While you’re embracing the falling snow and cooler temperatures, we have you covered!

Embrace the Hygge

The Danish word hygge encapsulates celebrating the winter with cozy comfort and leaning into the darkness of the season. So many of us can feel down as the light begins to fade during the winter months. The Danish relish in the darker months as it gives a chance to have beautiful candlelight, warm beverages with friends, game nights, and more! Consider adding battery operated candles to warm up a bedroom, or a soft faux fur throw blanket. Check out one of our favorite inspirations for some ideas. For those looking for cost-effective decorating solutions, we love a paper or faux evergreen garland to add a little homey feeling. An amazing craft to do while spending time with your loved one, this star garland is sure to brighten even the darkest days.

Add Some Winter Greenery

Evergreen decor is not just for the holidays! Whether faux or real, evergreen branches, plants, or wreaths add a freshness to your space in the winter when other plants are dormant and bare. A tiny faux tree is such a wonderful way to bring seasonal greenery into your home with zero maintenance. To enjoy the fresh scent of real branches, head outside to clip some sprigs off of a tree in your own yard. Wash them to make sure there is no lingering sap or bugs, and then place them in a vase for a crisp-looking, simple seasonal arrangement.

Macrame it Up!

Macrame is a beautiful craft with many different applications. Using cozy materials like wood and wool or cotton cords, macrame wall hangings and other decor pieces make your space feel cozy in the darker, colder months. Not only does it bring a little winter cheer to your space, but it’s an excellent way to bond with loved ones by crafting! We love this beginner macrame wall hanging as a snow day craft to enjoy. While classic white is always a great option, we also suggest using colored rope for a bright fun spin on the project! Or try matching the material to the color scheme of your loved one’s room so they can keep the wall hanging up all year round to remind them of the wonderful time you have spent together.

Winter can seem cold and gloomy, but with a little inspired decor you and your loved one can feel the warmth emanating from your spaces! We truly love winter and all the seasonal holidays and hope you and your loved ones find a little joy in this season!
