Depending on where you live, winter can give your home a dreary effect, especially when trying to sell. Instead, aim to wow potential buyers as they peruse through your home with staging tips that will take your space from drab to fab.
Set the scene.
While the warmer months may be more ideal for the overall home selling process, winter doesn’t have to be a dead end. Just like every other season, there are pros and cons—and it’s important to play to what everyone loves about the season. Add more pillows and throws to the living room to create a cozy ambiance, frame winter wonderland-esque pictures, and make use of warm-toned colors as much as possible.
Start from the outside.
Sprucing up the exterior of your home may be easier when it’s sunny, the garden is prospering, and flowers are in bloom, but curb appeal in winter exists too. If snow is on the ground, make sure to shovel and salt your driveway and walkways. Add some winter porch decor—like a doormat, a lantern, or a pinecone wreath for the full winter effect. Don’t forget about the less glamorous work, like cleaning out the gutters and trimming the bushes and trees.
Light it up.
We all dread the loss of natural light as we head further into winter, but don’t let that affect how your home looks. Open your curtains, blinds, and turn on the main lights in your house. The right lighting makes all the difference—and not just on Instagram.
Make the fireplace the focal point.
If you have a working fireplace, play it up by decorating the mantle with pictures of winter scenes, and even light the fire to top off the cozy feeling of your interior. Place candles on top of the mantle as well, but don’t light them if they’re scented, as that may deter people from appreciating the ambiance.
Store away winter gear.
No one wants to see dripping wet snow boots in the entryway, or hats and gloves lying around. Decluttering is important all year round, but in the winter, these items can be especially unsightly. Make sure to sweep up any debris that gets dragged in from outside. Don’t underestimate the power of a Swiffer®!
Staging your home in winter is just as important as staging in sunnier months. Make a positive impact with these tips!
Stringing up holiday lights has become such a popular seasonal activity that there are even full television shows dedicated to the subject. While some take the practice as serious as an Olympic sport, others would rather the task be reserved to a few painless hours of decorating.
No matter how you feel about them, there are many ways you can experiment with lights to create a display worthy of any light show competition (without putting in hours of effort).
Create a lighted backdrop
You can go from a boring wall to a starry night in a matter of minutes, with nothing more than a piece of poster board and string lights. Mark a pattern or scene out onto the board, and poke the lights through in the appropriate spots. When you plug them in, the lights will illuminate to create a backdrop that will look wonderful just about anywhere.
Try an alternative tree
Real Christmas trees can be messy, and if you’re allergic, can make the merriest season a little less bright. For a modern alternative, outline the shape of a tree on a blank wall, and trace around the lines with string lights. You can also simply swirl the lights downward in a zig-zag pattern for a more unconventional look.
Hang a festive room divider
Icicle lights look gorgeous outdoors, sure, but can look even better when strung up as an entrance to a room—especially for a holiday party. Hang a row or two from a door frame for an instant touch of whimsy, or along a wall as a sparkling backdrop.
Brighten a vase or votive
Holiday tables are nothing without a little light, and this is easy to achieve by placing a ball of lights in a decorative glass jar or votive. There is no wrong or right way to do it, so experiment with different colors and vase shapes, or try a series of vases for an extra bright and cheery setting.
Send a seasonal message
You can pay a pretty penny for illuminated letters, or you can create your own for far less! Outline a word or phrase along a blank wall, and trace the lines with lights to form the letters. This idea works great for holiday gatherings, too—cheers!
Combine light and rustic
Take a cue from the environment and incorporate barren winter branches into your decor. Wrapping the branches with lights adds just the right amount of seasonal charm. Place the branches in a pot or vase, lay in the middle of a table as a centerpiece, or tie up with a bright red ribbon.
Don’t underestimate the power of your holiday lights! There is so much more to do with them than simply wrap up your tree or hang around your roof. Follow these tips and get creative!
During the fall months, there’s a good chance that your backyard is blanketed in fallen leaves. While raking is more than likely in your near future, be sure to save a few leaves to create a sophisticated clay dish that’s the perfect spot for a variety of your loose knick-knacks.
Roll a small chunk of the clay out so that it’s both flat and thin. Be sure that it’s large enough to fit the entire leaf.
Lay the leaf facing upwards, onto the clay. Using the roller, gently press the leaf into the clay.
Use the craft knife to carefully cut the edges of the clay that surrounds the leaf. Tip: Do not include the stem in the cut out. Starting with the stem, slowly peel the leaf away from the clay.
Lift the clay, and place it into a bowl with the leaf pattern facing upwards. Let it dry overnight. To dry the other side, flip over the bowl, and place the clay with the leaf pattern facing downwards on it. Let it dry overnight.
Dip the small paintbrush into the metallic acrylic paint, trace over the lines that were molded into the leaf, and let dry.
Use the medium-sized paintbrush to carefully apply a few thin layers of varnish to strengthen the clay.
Modern technology has made its way into almost every aspect of life; it has especially taken precedence in the work environment. Technology, while helpful, is sometimes disruptive to the cohesive office design. Using these tips, take your technology into your own hands, and dress it up to your own design!
Three Techy Tips
These three fresh ideas can take your workstation from cluttered and boring to organized and artistic! Keep cords together by tying them with ribbon or utilizing products such as Cable Turtles. Keep your phone and tablet within arms reach by finding a charging station that fits the theme of your office and placing it right by the computer. If you decide that you want to keep these electronics out of the way, decorative boxes or clever designs can help them blend in with the rest of your desk. Find the system that works best for you, and liven up your office decor!
Corral your phone and tablet into a designated docking station
Phones and tablets need to be readily accessible, so why not pretty up their display? Go modern with a sleek dock that also charges the device, or use one that’s more sculptural and complex for an artsy display.
Dedicate a decorative box as a charging station
For those who feel that charging is better left unseen, dedicate a decorative box as a charging station. Punch a hole in the back so that you can include a power strip—just make sure there is enough ventilation so that the strip doesn’t overheat.
Disguise a tablet behind a book
Pick a pretty book that is slightly larger than your tablet. Using a utility knife, carefully carve out the pages, and slide the cover around the device. Let it stand as a focal piece, or decorate with some more reference books that you use on a daily basis.
Other than adding a fresh coat of paint, hanging pictures and decorations can be the easiest way to make your house feel like home. But knowing how to hang those items can be a different story. From plaster to drywall, there are different tools, methods, and best practices depending on the type of walls you’re working with.
Don’t worry! We’ve curated a list of the most common wall types and the materials and tips you’ll need to get started. Here’s to happy hanging!
DrywallMaterials for Light Items:
Additional Materials for Heavy Items:
Before you start hammering or drilling, be sure to measure where you want the object to hang, and mark the area with a pencil. Once you’ve marked your spot, hammer the nail at a 45° angle, hang the item, and check that it is level. For heavier items, you’ll need to use a stud finder so you can hammer directly into a stud and an anchor for added support. Once you’ve marked your spot, using the drill bit, drill a guide hole in the wall slightly smaller than the anchor. Hammer in the wall anchor, and then use the screwdriver to insert the screw—then you’re all set to hang.
Coolant such as mineral oil or water
Carbide- or diamond-tipped drill bit
Hammer wall anchor
As with all wall types, measure where you want the object to hang, and then use a pencil to mark it on painter’s tape. The tape will help protect the tile later in the process. Next, dip the drill bit in the coolant for ten seconds, and then slowly begin drilling. Apply light pressure, and then gradually increase the drill speed until you have reached the desired depth. If the drill bit begins to overheat at any point, simply take it out and dip it in the coolant again. Finally, using a hammer, drive the wall anchor into the wall, then drill in the screw and you’re ready to hang.
PlasterMaterials for Light Items:
Additional Materials for Heavy Items:
Measure where you want the object to hang, and then mark with a pencil. With plaster walls, you’ll want to put a piece of tape under your hole on the wall, like a basket, to catch any discarded plaster. Use another piece of tape to mark the spot where you want to drill. Drill a pilot hole through the tape (to help prevent your plaster from cracking), and hammer in your nail. For heavier items, drill a larger hole for the wall anchor, and then drive in the screw. Finally, hang your item and check that it’s level.
Stone or Brick
Drill with masonry bit
Before you get started, measure where you want the object to hang, and mark the spot with a pencil. Next, use painter’s tape to mark an inch from the tip of the drill bit so you don’t drill too far. Drill the spot you marked, making sure to stop once you reach the tape on the drill bit. Using a hammer, insert the wall anchor into the hole, and then drive in the screw. Hang the object and then make sure it is level.
Drill or hammer
Screw or nail
Before you start hammering away, measure where you want the object to hang, and then mark it with pencil. Using your drill, start a small pilot hole first to help minimize splitting. A nail will suffice for wooden walls, but a screw provides great holding power. Use your selected material, hammer or drill, and then hang your object—checking to ensure it’s level. For thinner wooden walls, such as paneling, follow this same process, but use a wall anchor that will spread out behind the wall.
Originally envisioning a future as an oil painter, Yao Cheng abruptly shifted course into the world of textiles while studying at Rhode Island School of Design. A chance meeting with some watercolor paints and a tutorial from a colleague would alter her trajectory yet again and set her on the path to her current career as an artist and small-business owner in Columbus, Ohio.
What did your path to the art world look like? Did your family encourage your love of art?
I lived in China until I was about eight, at which time I came to the United States. My path to art was introduced really early on by my mom. When I was four or five, she took me to an art class in my hometown of Nanchang. I was immediately hooked; it was a very instinctual and natural way for me to express myself from the beginning.
My mom definitely encouraged my creative side throughout my childhood. The rest of my family was more of a mix—many of them were not sure if an art education would lead to financial stability. But I knew in my heart that this was the right path for both my education and my career.
You graduated from Rhode Island School of Design with a bachelor of fine arts in textiles. Was that always the medium you wanted to pursue?
I initially went to RISD to pursue oil painting. Around that time, I became obsessed with knitting. Working with my hands in such a visceral way was really intriguing, and something in me knew I needed to change my major.
I saw textiles as evolving my painting interests in a three-dimensional way.
During my junior year, I studied abroad at the China Academy of Art in Hangzhou for a semester. That was another distinct experience that has had a big influence on my work today. I learned a lot about traditional Chinese floral painting, as well as the power of expression through calligraphy and brushwork making.
How did watercolor painting enter the picture? Are you self-taught?
I was designing patterns for Abercrombie & Fitch’s women’s brand at the time, including painted original designs. A work friend, who was much more experienced in watercolors, taught me different ways that I could play with them. He allowed me to see it from a modern, nontraditional way. It wasn’t about forcing the watercolors to be tight or highly technical; instead, I was challenged to control them only to a certain point and then allow them to do their own thing. It was so liberating and so much fun. I knew immediately that this was the medium that I had been searching for all along.
Did you always envision that your watercolors would go on textiles?
No, but it has been an incredibly satisfying experience to see it on textiles. When I started my business in 2012, I was very focused on what I knew, which was painting. I really wanted to get back into painting but with watercolors. From there, people loved the printed reproductions that I was selling of my paintings, so I was able to expand little by little into other categories, including textiles.
It makes a lot of sense to see my work on textiles now, considering that so much of my education was about creating textiles. I find the industry really exciting, especially with the technology of digital printing—it really enhances the vibrancy of watercolors.
There is a lot of plant life in your designs. What draws you to this subject matter?
I think my time studying abroad in China influenced a lot of my botanical work. I love trying to capture the life and energy that exist in plants. I find them poetic and so majestic. I love that they are imperfect and organic.
Tell us about your process. Do you sketch anything first?
If it’s work that’s outside of my own line of products, I will create rough pen sketches. However, if it’s my own body of work, I sketch in the form of painting. It’s a good exercise to jump right into painting and not rely on previous sketches. The best ideas come from that improvisation process, and I build more confidence as an artist when I know that I can look at a blank page and eventually arrive somewhere that is really compelling.
Do you have any surprising sources of inspiration?
I’m currently going through a phase where I want to find inspiration in real life, like going to an art museum. I want to experience art and find new ideas in a different way so that my paintings can move forward and be sparked by a different point of view.
But I think inspiration can also come in other ways, like music. I pay close attention to the tempo of music. The rhythms can spark a new idea or pair with something visual that I found in a book. It’s about combining inspirations from different places. I’m constantly mashing totally different things together—such as a geometric pattern combined with the colors that I see in a photograph of ice cream.
Funnily enough, I also find a lot of inspirations in my dreams. I think it’s my brain’s way of making sense of the things that I experience. Many times, I’ve painted a final piece after a nap or after a distinct dream that triggered an idea.
What artists do you admire?
There are many contemporary artists that I admire, but I try not to look at their work too much because I believe deeply in respecting the work of others. I think a mistake that a lot of people make, especially in the beginning of their careers as they are finding their own voice, is looking too much at others’ work that they admire. It’s very easy to then subconsciously create work that feels similar. I am a believer that, as an artist, it’s my responsibility to find my own ideas and not recreate anyone else’s.
I’ve often revisited Van Gogh’s work throughout my career. I love that he painted in a medium that’s totally different from mine and that he tried to capture light in a million colors. His work has a shimmer and a glow that make me feel like the fields are moving right in front of me. I’m always trying to capture that same feeling in my work.
How do you fight creative blocks? What resets your brain?
A creative block can be very frustrating to go through. I’m currently in one now. Fighting it has never worked for me; doing so only makes me more frustrated and costs me a lot of wasted time. My best defense is to recognize that I’m
in a creative block and that it won’t last forever, and then I do something completely different until it passes.
You cofounded Rise & Design, a meetup for creatives in your area. What was the impetus for that?
I cofounded Rise & Design with my good friend and creative, Danielle Evans of Marmalade Bleue, back in 2016. Columbus is a wonderful city, but a lot of illustrators and designers are scattered among the suburbs, and because so many of us work from home, it’s hard for everyone to get together. Rise & Design was a way for us to provide a place for everyone to come together and strike up important conversations.
The beauty of Rise & Design comes from the fact that we don’t all belong to one industry, so our discussions are more expansive and provide more perspectives. We also see some college students come through, which is particularly exciting for me because I love being able to introduce the next generation of creatives to the real world of running a design business.
Rise & Design is something I’m incredibly proud of and am so grateful to have. It has grown into a community of amazing people. We are all genuinely supportive of each other, and having access to so many resources is very crucial for any small-business owner.
In an alternate universe, what is your profession?
I would also love to be a ceramist, a therapist, a pianist, a dancer, or even an astronaut, but being an artist is my focus and love for this lifetime.
Who knew such a small plant could stir up so much talk? Microgreens are increasingly popular because they are such excellent sources of protein and vitamins. With just a few simple steps, you can grow your own microgreens and be ready to serve them in a tasty summer salad in just a few weeks.
Spread the soil uniformly in the bottom of your tray. Then, take handfuls of the seeds, and sprinkle them liberally across the soil surface.
Press gently on the seeds so only the top is not covered by soil, and place a layer of paper towels over the seed bed.
Using a spray bottle, thoroughly soak the towels with water until you are sure the soil beneath is wet.
Cover the tray with the lid, and place it in a location that is not exposed to direct sunlight. You want an area that gets very little light at all. Note: The purpose of the lid on the tray is to help keep moisture in and stimulate germination, but make sure the lid is not creating a greenhouse effect. If it seems to be getting too hot inside, loosen the lid slightly to allow for ventilation and a little air circulation. You will want to make sure that the paper towel stays moist during the process, so wet it again if you need to.
Once the seeds fully germinate, which can vary based on seed type used, the towel will start to lift off of the soil. Once this happens, remove the lid and paper towels from the tray, and place the tray in a location that gets bright but indirect sunlight. Continue to water gently as needed. Note: Remember that overwatering can be just as damaging as underwatering, so allow the plants to dry slightly between waterings.
Harvest microgreens any time after the emergence of the first leaves (usually about two inches in height) by cutting the stems with sharp kitchen shears.
Wash the greens by placing them in a small, plastic dish, and then dry them on a towel. (Be careful! They are very fragile.) Use your microgreens immediately, or store them in a resealable bag in the refrigerator for up to a week.
Once you’ve grown your microgreens, you can use the following recipe to make a fresh, nutrient-rich salad you’re sure to love!
Virginia designer Sara Hillery set her creative sights on her own family home renovation, with an eye toward a light and airy space with a palette of blue, white, and neutral colors.
What is your background when it comes to design?
I majored in art as an undergrad at the University of Virginia and worked for a local design firm in Richmond. I enjoyed the work that I did there enough to go back to school and get my master of fine arts in interior environments from Virginia Commonwealth University. I worked for Lucas/Eilers in Houston for seven years doing large-scale residential projects and then started my own business after having my first child.
Where did you grow up? How does that experience inform the way you design?
I grew up largely in Richmond, but I spent time in Pennsylvania and Texas. The East Coast’s love of English and Early American history taught me to love brown furniture, especially antiques and classics, like Duncan Phyfe and Sheraton. Texas loves a little more French influence and a more casual environment, so I possess a deep appreciation for a crusty old paint finish and an atelier style. Texas doesn’t have the same history as the East Coast, and there’s a much more modern philosophy of building new history. I think this melting pot of locations forged my love of eclectic environments that aren’t all one style and that tell the story of the clients’ varied interests.
What is your earliest memory of looking at a room and wanting to redesign it?
My mom always let me have input in my room; she even let me choose a cat theme at one point. She has always been crafty and enjoyed a love of homemaking, so design was encouraged in our house.
What traits make you well-suited to be a designer? What have you had to adjust about yourself in this business?
I love being creative, and I look at design as a fun form of problem-solving. I like the challenge of taking a space and making it better. I also really enjoy getting to know people. I’ve had to learn how to be organized so that I can be creative and still run a business.
What types of design feed your creativity on a daily basis?
I am definitely inspired by fashion. I also love seeing other designers’ work, especially designers who are working on projects that are very different than my own. There’s always something to learn from seeing how others design a space.
If you could have a design superpower, what would it be?
The ability to read people’s minds about what they really would like their space to be and look like.
How would you describe your design style?
No matter how modern, casual, or formal my designs are, I always incorporate an element of elegance. At the same time, my style is also practical and flexible.
Tell us about this project. What were you looking to accomplish?
I wanted the design to be affordable and incorporate much of our existing furniture, be child-friendly for our three kids, and have open sight lines for windows and doors so that the house would feel more spacious and flowing and be a place where we could entertain both kids and adults formally and more casually.
What were your first steps in conceptualizing the design of the house?
The first thing we did was line up all the sight lines for natural light. We let that determine the arrangement of the furniture and cabinetry.
Will you talk about the reorientation of the furniture in the family room?
We wanted the cooking fireplace, which is such a unique piece, to serve as the nucleus of the room. We made it into a conversation area and gathering space that purposely doesn’t include a television. I wanted to encourage the art of conversation in this tech-obsessed age.
Where did the inspiration for your color palette originate?
The whole house incorporates a lot of blue, white, and neutral colors so that the design flows from one room to the next. I was inspired by the Texas sky: big, blue, light, airy, and sunny.
What was the biggest challenge?
Light is really important to me, so the low ceiling height, boxy architecture, and small windows were a challenge. We opened up walls to get more light in. I often tend toward light fixtures that incorporate a lot of height, but the ceilings aren’t high enough, so I had to get creative.
The original space had wood paneling in the family room and bedroom. Why did you decide to keep it? How do you feel about the trend of painting over it?
Originally, I thought I was going to paint over it, but I realized that reversing it would be timely and costly. On top of that, the paneling is old heart pine—you can’t get that particular grain anymore, so I felt like there was no going back. I’ve found that stains are more forgiving than paint and are lower maintenance. The paneling is warm and inviting, plus it’s brown, so it acts as a neutral.
What wasn’t working for you in the kitchen, and what were you able to salvage?
We ended up gutting the kitchen: we ripped out all the cabinets, took down walls, and completely changed the layout. The original kitchen had an old, peninsula-style counter and didn’t really work—there was no circular flow. We designed the kitchen with the idea that multiple hands, including little ones, are often preparing meals these days. The modern island design with multizone cooking suits us much better and is more welcoming when we are entertaining. We did salvage the white dishwasher. And we put in pine floors to make the room match with the others and not appear disjointed from the rest of the house.
Is it easier or harder to design your own space versus someone else’s?
Harder! When I work on someone else’s space, I am setting aside the time and really devoting myself to the design process because it’s my job. For my own space, it’s more of an experimental playground. I’m grabbing fifteen minutes here or there and trying to make the design come together.
What is your biggest design pet peeve that you see out in the world or in other people’s houses?
Overscale furniture, because it messes up the balance of the space. There’s a certain zen quality when everything is well-proportioned in a room, even if the colors don’t match perfectly. Sometimes people will have me come and look at a space because it feels “off” and they can’t pinpoint why. It’s often an issue of scale. But I truly welcome and am inspired by all types of design.
What is your philosophy on design and life?
You only have one life. Design (and life) should make you feel good, it should be livable, and it should inspire you to be your better self. That being said, be yourself!
What are some hobbies or passions you pursue other than design?
I love to travel and explore new cultures. I’m also passionate about getting involved with and supporting local parks. And anytime I can support arts causes or other artisans, I’m in.
If you weren’t an interior designer, what would you be?
I used to want to be a doctor, so I would have continued to pursue medicine to improve people’s health. Instead, I get to improve their environment.
Winter is a tough time for our well-being. Hygge (hoo-guh), a Danish lifestyle concept that emphasizes comfort, minimalism, togetherness, and coziness, is your secret weapon for preparing your home for winter. Shut out the cold with plush throws, pleasant scents, and wooden accents.
Create a cozy atmosphere with textiles
Textile art was a major trend in winter 2019, and it shows no signs of slowing down. Display a macrame tapestry to make your space feel comfortable and welcoming. Cuddle up with a wool throw and hot chocolate to save on heating costs. On stressful days, decompress underneath Bearaby’s weighted knit blanket. Hygge emphasizes spending time with friends and loved ones, and floor pillows make your living space more inviting for guests. Pile a few patterned wool throw pillows on the sofa to unwind together.
Heat up your home with candles
Candles create a beautiful Hygge inspired space. If you don’t have a fireplace, grouping candles on your mantle or coffee table creates the illusion of a large flame. Light a few citrus scented candles on your nightstand to unwind after a long day. For a magical atmosphere, wrap fairy lights around a grouping of glass candle holders. Take note that traditional candles emit chemicals that are less than ideal for you and the environment—soybean wax burns cleaner.
Add wood accents to your space
Hygge reminds us to connect with the natural world, and wood accents are perfectly inviting. Wooden coasters add a touch of rustic charm to your coffee and end tables. Black walnut serving bowls are great for serving snacks, but are still elegant enough to use at the dinner table. Lay out geometric wooden tea light holders to mix contemporary with countryside. If you enjoy working with your hands, try log candle holder crafts for a fun Hygge challenge. Twig bundles are cost-friendly, easy to dress up with metallic twine, and are a crafty alternative to wooden picture frames.
Soothe the soul with essential oils
The Danes can’t do without comfort. Hygge prioritizes downtime, and an essential oil diffuser makes your space more calming. Peppermint and lavender essential oils are universally pleasant scents with a wealth of benefits. Peppermint oil is an all-natural remedy for killing winter cold germs and refreshing the air, while lavender oil is ideal for easing anxiety. Eucalyptus oil emits a stronger scent and acts as a decongestant. Vitruvi’s stone essential oil diffuser offers all the minimalism and organic feel of Hygge.
Hide from the cold in your Hyggekrog
If you lead a busy life, channel Hygge to take care of yourself. The Hyggekrog is a “nook” where you can escape the demands of work, family, and winter weather. To create your own Hyggekrog, decorate your favorite space with accents that give you comfort. Display your favorite photographs in wooden frames. Stock the den or the living room with a basket of slipper socks, an oversized sweater, and a fleece electric blanket. Lay out a book with glossy pictures of sand and surf to ward off the winter blues. Nothing takes the chill off like self-care.
