I am home for the holidays and we are expecting snow in Wisconsin this evening and everyone is preparing for a winter wonderland! Happy first day of winter!
The picture above is the fountain of the Drake Hotel, made icy and wonderful to fully embrace the season. It reminds me of something out of the movie Frozen and therefore seems completely magical.
Commonly in home décor there is a desire to cozy up a space and make it feel warm and soft (which is truly lovely). However, I also really like the idea of going for the opposite effect and highlighting the snow and ice that is outside and recreating its beauty indoors. For a less literal approach, than that pictured above, you could incorporate mirrored and crystal accent pieces into your decor. That would be a great way to play up the whole “ice palace” image in a more subtle fashion. Another idea is to experiment with anything silver or winter white, like a nice throw blanket or pillow. Let your imagination run wild and embrace all things that are snow, ice and everything nice!
