WINTER FLORALS & COZY PILLOWS

I hope you’re having a wonderful week so far, friends! It has been sunny here and the days are getting warmer (“warmer” for us here in the winter means anything above freezing). Though it makes the roads all mucky and slushy, I definitely am enjoying the sunshine.

Well, I had wanted to get to a winter home tour post for January, but I seem to have been spending a LOT more time outside of the house than in lately, which is actually a bit of a fulfilment for one of my goals for the year. Needless to say, I haven’t quite been able to pull everything together for it that I wanted to. I am also doing a collaborative spring home tour that I will be shooting photos for early-mid February, therefore setting up soon, so I thought I would save the home tour energy for that! However, I have wanted to talk about and share some winter florals I am loving, and some cozy couch pics snuck in here too.

Flowers are my jam. I have always loved florals and trying to see how I can incorporate them into the home throughout the seasons. My husband, being the sweetie that he is (brag alert, sorry), took me on a lovely dinner date last week, and also picked up these gorgeous fresh flowers for me to go along with it.

Aren’t these just amazing?! I love everything about this arrangement.
Troy has heard me going on and on about wanting seeded eucalyptus and eucalyptus stems for winter for quite some time. Let me tell you, here you can’t really find them outside of ordering through a florist. So of course, when he had these at our table for dinner I was ecstatic, and knew instantly I needed to photograph them and do a little post on winter blooms & stems.

I find the roses and ranunculus to be a beautiful match for the eucalyptus, and the tulips are an unexpected, but lovely addition to this as well. All the flowers being white keeps this looking crisp and wintery.
Eucalyptus is one of the most versatile plants that really fits with decor for every season in my opinion, and seeded eucalyptus works effortlessly along with it while also adding interest. That’s why I love it so much, and I am sure you’ll see more of it in my home throughout the year (if I am able to consistently find it)!

Here’s a little look at my couch for winter as well. It’s easy to cozy up a space by adding in throw pillows and blankets, and I think the textures of knit and fur always add some extra warmth, making it fitting for the winter season.

My faux fur pillow is from Chapters/Indigo a couple of years ago. I found the black and white herringbone pillow a few months back at HomeSense, and my cream knit throw is from Canadian Tire’s Canvas collection.

Back over to my flowers here, I am absolutely loving this mercury glass vase. Can you believe my husband picked that out too? This confirms he knows me better than I know myself, haha. This is a subtle gold mercury glass, and I think just adds a perfect warm glow to this winter arrangement. It was the cherry on top for me, and now I get to keep it and use it for future styling! Major win.

I think that having flowers around always adds more depth to a space, and can invoke feelings of calm and contentment – they just makes things nicer. These blooms show that florals shouldn’t only be reserved for spring and summer decor, so be sure to explore how you can use them in your home through all the seasons!
I hope you enjoyed this pretty little break in your day. Thanks for stopping by!
