Windows can be overlooked when it comes to décor, but they’re a wonderful place to showcase your creativity all year round. Not only do beautiful window treatments give onlookers an inviting display, they also make guests inside your home feel cozy. Here are some window decoration ideas for spring, summer, fall, and winter.
Spring & Summer
The warmth of spring and summer makes it ideal to decorate your windows. Your décor will be visible from many angles, making it a great opportunity to update the look of your home. Here are some spring and summer window design ideas using Balsam Hill’s outdoor-safe artificial florals.
In Full Bloom
Celebrate the season and all its colors with windows dressed from top to bottom. Start with pieces directly on the window, such as a wreath, then add a pair of hanging floral baskets on both ends. Finally, add box planters or a window garland across the length of the sill. Accent the look with a matching potted arrangement on the ground or on top of a table.
Add a touch of the harvest season’s warmth with a bountiful window display. With just a few decorative accents, you can create a charming fall scenery right on your windowsill.
Placing candles on your windowsill is a good living room window idea. Candles bring warmth to your spaces while creating an inviting look when viewed from the outside. Balsam Hill’s Miracle Flame LED Chamberstick candles are a charming way to light up your windows all year long. Display just one or arrange them in groups on the window ledge for a serene effect.
Highlight your window with clusters of pumpkins in different shapes and sizes or use small pieces to decorate your wreaths and other greenery. Add interesting details with fall window accents like metal watering cans and wicker baskets filled with harvest items and stalks for a farmhouse-style look.
From setting up Christmas wreaths for windows, hanging festive garlands on doorways, and drawing up the lights, here are some ways you can make the most out of your windows for the holiday season.
Set the Scene
If you have a window seat or a spacious ledge, set up a Christmas village or nativity scene. From inside the room, your window view serves as a natural backdrop to the scene you’ve created. When viewed from the outside, your little window scene complements any outdoor lighting you have.
Velvet red and green curtains make for simple but attractive window treatments, which you can cinch with beaded garlands for a more festive touch. You can also use cascading LED lights in place of a curtain to create a waterfall effect that goes well with a winter wonderland theme. Bring sparkle to your windows by placing Christmas lights on window jambs.
