The holiday season is a great time to deck out your home with festive decor pieces.

For me, surrounding myself with fun Christmas decorations always puts a smile on my face and helps me get into a jolly mood.

There’s just something about the color combination of red, gold, silver, brown, and green that is so fun and festive and it reminds me of happy times as a kid during the winter holidays!

1. Pillows

One of my must-have items I like to incorporate into my winter home decor to give a cozy feel to my living room are pillows.

I like to change out my pillows right at the beginning of the holiday season because it easily changes up the vibe of the whole house.

This fuzzy cream-colored pillow below is really fitting for the cold, winter seasons because the color is so similar to snow and the fuzziness brings texture to the room.

You can also add other great festive pillows with Christmas images and quotes as well.

2. Christmas Stockings

A great addition to your Christmas living room decor is to hang a few festive stockings on the mantle (P.S. – you can personalize these which make them even more special).

It’s also a great place to house any stocking stuffer presents you’ll be giving to your loved ones on Christmas.

3. Faux Sheepskin Rug

Another item I always like to take out for the winter season is a sheepskin area rug.

This statement piece is a great addition to help create a cozy Christmas living room.

It can be placed on the floor to help keep your feet warm during the cold winter months or even on your chair or couch.

4. LED String Lights

These rose gold LED lantern string lights are absolutely beautiful and will give your room a nice, cozy vibe.

This is always on my Christmas decorations list that I bring out for winter.

If you’re not into lantern string lights, you can get plain string lights instead which are totally malleable and can be shaped in any way you’d like.

They can be hung on your bed, door frames, and even put into small jars.

Get creative!

5. Christmas Tree

Of course, this holiday home decor list wouldn’t be complete without a beautiful Christmas tree.

These trees are reusable and makes setting up a tree every year a breeze.

6. Christmas Tree Decorations

To dress up your tree, just add some ornaments, lights, a tree topper, and you’re good to go.

It’s also probably a good idea to get a tree skirt at the bottom to hide the legs.

Another must-have item is a luxurious sherpa throw to add some dimension to your sofa.

This throw is ultra-plush and absolutely gorgeous and will easily help turn your room into a super cozy, winter haven.

15. Flameless Candles

Another great decor piece for the holidays is a set of flameless candles.

If you have pets and kids, lighting up real wax candles can be a serious hazard if they’re knocked over.

And even if you don’t have any kids or pets, if you’re paranoid about candles burning down the house, these LED flameless candles are a lifesaver.

They totally mimic real candles, are battery operated, and even flicker like real candles.

    Wonderful home decor ideas! Thank you grace for sharing your creative ideas. I always love to embellish my home with unique and shining things for Christmas day. I am really in love with your LED flameless candles. These candles look beautiful. I have pinkish light salt lamps from saltean .

    This is such a lovely guide to incorporating more festive decor! I have definitely added cosier pillows and a wreath — and that alone, makes the house look more inviting! Of course, the gigantic Christmas tree is the star of the show though 🙂
