Candles - Top Favorite Winter Home Decor Essential

Candles​: Top Favorite Winter Home Decor Essential

From gorgeous candles over beautiful candle holders to the cutest enlightened little houses, you’ll find everything around candles for your winter home decor.

When the nights get longer, the air gets cold and crisp, and winter’s around the corner, there’s no better home decor item than candles!

Wrapped in a cozy blanket, sipping on a hot tea and the smell of freshly baked cookies in the air – that’s how to embrace the long and dark evenings during the autumn/winter season in my opinion.

My go-to decor items are candles. The softly flickering natural light source of a lit candle is just so calming and beautiful at night, and the arrangements look super cosy throughout the day too.

And the best thing: It’s really easy to decorate – you can never go wrong with candles!


Here are a few decorating ideas for winter:

  • Use soft natural tones or throw in some trendy colors
  • Arrange assorted candles on a large tray and style it with some branches or dried flowers
  • Decorate your couch table with some good books and a few large candles, and put some cute throw blankets on your couch
  • Create a winter wonderland landscape with tealight houses
  • Add them to your go-to Christmas table decor

Let’s dive right into this carefully curated selection of candles and candle holders.

Nothing goes over a home filled with the soft warm light of candles.

Whether you prefer classic candle sticks in a beautiful candle holder, or candles with scents in a wide glass that spread a soothing home fragrance – or a mix of both – you’ll find your favorite one here I’m sure 😉

Those miniature houses are just the cutest thing ever!

They remind me of a crafts project I did as a kid, but they are just a lot more classy in ceramic and metal. With a tea light inside, they spread the cozy atmosphere of walking around a cute neighborhood in the snow, all inside your own home.

There are so many different designs to pick from!

They will be my favorite decorating item for this upcoming Christmas season. And they will stay up until long after the holidays for sure 😉

Lanterns – Decorate for Winter Around Your House

Lanterns are a true Scandinavian staple when it comes to winter home decor.

They add so much style to your home and spread a cosy mood.

Small or big – select the size that best works for where you want to put the lanterns; on the dining room table, in the corner of your room, or outside the door on your porch.
