Sharing winter farmhouse decorating ideas with a winter home tour of our home to make your home brighter & cozier in the dark of winter with pictures.
Winter can be a dark & dreary time of year.
All the excitement of Christmas is over, the days are shorter & if you live anywhere north, it’s really cold.
When decorating our home for the winter I tried to make our home a place of warmth & simplicity or Hygge.
I hope my winter home tour gives you ideas of how to make your homes a little brighter & cozier in the winter months.

Cozy Winter Farmhouse Decor
One thing I love about the winter is how our life tends to slow down & become a little quieter.
More evenings are enjoyed at home together & the darker mornings mean kids sleep in a little longer… well, at least till 7 am. 🙂
Living Room – Winter Farmhouse Decor
After taking down the Christmas tree in our living room we decided not to bring our TV back into the room.
We wanted this room to be screen free, a place where we could have a conversation & enjoy a fire without the distraction of the TV in the background.
I want the only technology in this room to be that of music playing in the background.
We moved my secretary to the left of the fireplace where the TV had once been & moved the television down the basement.
Our living room feels more open & relaxing than it had been before.
Winter Coffee Table Decor
I brought down all my decorating & gardening book from my bookcase & placed them on or under our coffee table along with a wooden dough bowl with pine cones in it.
I just love the calm, quiet of the winter to dream about what we will plant in our garden or what big DIY & decorating plans we have for our farmhouse.
Winter Fireplace Mantel Decor
Our fireplace mantel is keep bright with white farmhouse decor & candles.
Winter conversations happen best when everyone is cozy & warm next to the warmth of the fire :). To see more of our winter mantel, check that out here.
The nesting instinct I have throughout the winter doesn’t just stop with cozying up our winter home tour but also what we are eating when we are home.
Winter Home Tour in the Farmhouse Kitchen
I enjoying cooking, baking & eating 🙂 more so in the winter than any other time of year.
It seems that almost everyday, I have something baking in the oven or cooking on the stove.
Yesterday, I made my kids their favorite sugar cookies.
We had some trouble locating the snowflake cookie cutter so we settled on trees :).
Obviously, my cookie decorating skills need some help but the kids & I always have fun making & eating them.
Sugar cookies are the best because you can change out the shape based on the season or occasion.
White Flowers to Brighten Up our Winter Home Tour
To add a little more color and freshen up our kitchen I added 2 new plants to my kitchen window.
I love the bright white of the cyclamen flowers to echo the white of the snow that is often seen outside my kitchen window.
Farmhouse Entryway in our Winter Home Tour
Our entryway is often full of snow gear to help keep us warm when we go outside.
I love our old door turned coat rack & mitten tree to help dry off those wet snow clothes when my 4 kiddos come in.
Winter Farmhouse Master Bedroom
It is so much fun going up our newly refinished farmhouse stairs into our master bedroom.
In the winter, Jason & I tend to head upstairs early so that we have time to read or watch a movie together.
I recently brought up our oil lamps to help add a little more ambient light so one of us can go to sleep while the other ones stays up to read.
I really like the vintage farmhouse look they give our bedroom.
Farmhouse Family Room Winter Home Tour
When our family gets snowed in, one of our favorite things to do is play board games & watch movies together.
Our favorite board game to play is Ticket to Ride.
Even my youngest knows how to play.
Can you spot the furry nose in the above pic? The popcorn was just too tempting for him :).
Ultimately, I try my best to decorate our farmhouse winter home tour with my family in mind.
My kids are growing up way too fast & it’s important to me to keep the decorating simple, bright, warm & comfortable so that we can spend more time together as a family.
I hope my winter home tour gives you lots of winter farmhouse decorating ideas & inspiration!
