Farmhouse Living Room Decor Ideas for Winter.

I absolutely love winter light. It’s clear and bright and it makes my winter farmhouse living room decor really pop. I have never used icy blue in my house before and now I am wondering why.

Be sure to scroll down to the bottom of my post to see all of the winter decor ideas from some of my favorite bloggers.

Today I have put together five Winter Farmhouse Living Room Decor Ideas and I can’t wait to share them!

#1 – Choose a Winter Color Palette

When I chose my winter palette of icy blue and sage green, I had no idea how much I was going to love it. I have not ever decorated with icy blue so I felt like I was taking a bit of a chance.

What have I been waiting for? This winter color palette of blues and greens is amazing and creates such a serene and calm feel in our home. I started incorporating the new winter palette in the family room and loved it!

To be honest, I was really a bit nervous about how the colors would look in the living room. But I really do love them. Our living room painting (painted by a friend and amazing artist Ray Turner) was a huge inspiration for my winter color palette.

We are using our living room more than ever and I think it is because it is so calm and cozy.

Here are some other winter color palette ideas.

  • Warm earthy tones and textures mixed with warm metal tones like gold or brass.
  • Dark blues and greens with silver metal tones.
  • Warm chocolate browns with a dash of cinnamony red/orange and a splash of tan.
  • Creamy winter whites and creams with warm metallic accents.

#2 – Reuse Christmas Decor

As I was taking down and packing up all of the Christmas decorations, I kept an eye out for anything that fell into my new winter color palette. I was surprised to find how many glass Christmas balls I have in sagey/silver greens, icy blue, and silver.

These glass Christmas balls are perfect for piling into a footed bowl or a large wooden dough bowl. They also add a bit of sparkle when they catch the winter light through the windows in the afternoon.

A few years ago, I bought some faceted crystal trees at Pottery Barn. Then when Christmas was over and the trees went on sale, I bought more. I love these trees so much and have used them in so many ways.

The plates are vintage Blue Depression Glass. I bought them at the Flea Market last weekend for $4 each.

I have my crystal trees throughout our home and I also love to put them in front of a window. When they catch the light, they make polka dots of light all across the walls and ceiling. Sadly, these trees are no longer available on the Pottery Barn website (in case you are wondering).

#3 – Create a Cozy and Colorful Seating Area with Pillows and Blankets

We have been gathering in the living room after dinner, curling up on the couch in front of the fire with a book, or in my case, my Kindle, and reading for a couple of hours in the evenings. I have purchased a few new blankets (see below) because we both reached for the same blanket night after night. Now we each have our own favorite!

I added these pillow covers that I made last weekend to the living room couches and I LOVE the look they created. I am so happily surprised at how blue has worked in this room. The addition of blue has really made the colors in the painting pop and I never realized how much blue was in the rug.

I came up with a new and easy way to make my pillow covers. The DIY will be on my blog in a few days.

#4 – Create a Space for Yummy Snacks and Warm and Cozy Drinks

The living room is not a room that you typically think of eating, or at least I didn’t. Now that we are spending our evenings in the living room, I created a space for a little after-dinner snack and to make some cozy warm drinks.

My husband is famous for his steamed milk with a little bit of Frangelico. I used a portable burner so we can heat up a small batch of milk, added our milk frother and we are set!

#5 – Create a Space for Games and Puzzles

I have always loved puzzles and games. I have bought a few new puzzles in the past couple of years. It is a thousand pieces, so it is going to take us a while to complete it.

We are pretty competitive in our family and Rummikub is one of our favorites. We have modified the rules a bit to play with just two players (we take twenty-five tiles to start and take two whenever you have to pull more tiles).

I am so in love with our new farmhouse winter decor and I hope my ideas have inspired you!

  1. I cannot find a color chart with the wall paint you mentioned. Are your walls a sage green or a tan? I love your look
    Thank you…Helen

  2. Leslie,
    Everything looks so pretty for the wintertime!!!! It’s soothing, comfortable and peaceful. That’s what I’m aiming for myself. I don’t do much white or off white on my walls, I lean toward creams with an accent wall in my bedrooms. I know it may be out of style, but I like color but I downplay my decor pieces in my rooms. I’m going for not too much this year so I won’t have to be dusting everything in the world!!!! The older I get, the lessons I’ve learned. Glad I finally learned that and your blog has helped me greatly. Simplifly!!! I love everything you create so smart with your decorating and making things yourself. Blessing from God above for health, peace. prosperity, and Love.

  3. I love looking at your pictures and reading about your ideas. I also live in a 100+year old farmhouse. It can be amazing, but also quirky at the same time.

    One question….I love the furniture arrangement in front of the fireplace. Are those both loveseats or full couches? I would like to try that, but I would need to scale down my furniture size and use loveseats.

  4. Hi! Love the look – it’s my taste. Where did you get that coffee table/chest! It’s beautiful and would be perfect for my family room.

  5. I looovvee the icy blue Leslie! Blue is my favorite color so when I see it in decor – it always gives me a sense of calm ☺️💙!
    Thank you for including me on this fun hop too my friend!

  6. Hi Leslie!

    I have looked for the answer and can’t seem to find the size of your blue hued anchor hocking bubble plates. Are they full size plates or salad plate size?

    Thank you so much!!
