Here are few tips on the up and coming winter accessory trends for your Cook County new homes. These accessories can also be great if you are staging a home, but are too busy with holiday shopping to redecorate every room.

  • Sweater pillows. These make great simple and thrifty additions to any couch. Use online tutorials to repurpose a favorite old sweater or flannel shirt into an eye-catching and unique pillow.
  • Sweater texture. If you’re not the crafty type and sweater pillows don’t appeal to you, designers suggest purchasing accessories that have ‘sweater texture’ that is reminiscent of your favorite cold weather clothing. One great way to do this is by finding low cost vases that have a cable-knit pattern. You can also find plates with a cable-knit pattern to change up the style of your kitchen.
  • Candle trees. Why use a boring old jar candle when you can light up a room with a series of small votives? You can find inexpensive candle trees at stores such as Bed Bath & Beyond.
  • Layered rugs. This is a great way to give your home some extra flair before a staging! Go with a large, simple rug on the bottom and then layer a bolder rug on top. You can also choose patterns or designs that create more of a cozy winter feel. What sort of winter décor do you use when staging a home?
