As the nights get colder, our homes should feel cozier. Pinterest is showcasing several trends to do just that. RubyHome Luxury Real Estate in Los Angeles researched the latest search data on Pinterest to uncover trending interior design styles for this winter.

1. Winter front porch decor
Consumer interest for “winter front porch decor” is surging once again on Pinterest, jumping by a whopping 975% since September.
How to channel it: Start with a winter wreath on the front door made of dried leaves, faux flowers or even a combination of seasonal elements, like pinecones, berries and cinnamon. Compliment it with some seasonal plants, like pine and eucalyptus, and add berries and thistle for an added burst of color. Try to incorporate planters or pots in warm, earth tones to fit with the season.
Also, dress up the porch furniture with throw pillows and blankets, like in wintery patterns and colors of burgundy, greens or blues.
2. Earthy tones for the bedroom
The hues are proving to be popular for wintertime interior styles. They can be woven in with natural design elements that help bring the outdoors inside and add a touch of charm. Pinterest searches for “earthy bedroom” have risen by 113% since July and are expected to continue to spark interest during the winter periods.
How to channel it: Use colors inspired by nature, such as browns, greens, warm grays and muted earthy reds. For example, choose a duvet cover, sheets and pillowcases in natural colors like deep brown, olive green or sandy beige. A neutral linen duvet cover also can add an earthy texture.
Add throw pillows in various earthy tones and textures to a bed or seating area. Consider using fabrics like jute, burlap or those with nature-inspired patterns, like leaves, branches or animal prints.
If you’re looking to revamp your furniture this winter, design experts recommend incorporating wooden pieces, such as a solid wood bed frame, nightstands or a dresser. Natural wood tends to add warmth and create a connection to nature.
For an extra earthy touch, pots and planters also can add to the theme. For example, succulents, ferns, snake plants or any greenery can bring a refreshing touch of nature to a bedroom.
3. Winter crochet
Pinterest searches for “winter crochet” have surged by an eye-popping 1,328% since May.
How to channel it: Crochet patterns for the home can be a way to add warmth to a living space during the winter season. Several items in your home can be adapted to crochet patterns, such as pillow covers, blankets, throws or even photo frames.
Consider crocheted pillow covers that feature seasonal motifs like leaves, acorns or owls. Slip them over existing pillows to change up the décor for the winter season.
Alternatively, framing pieces of crochet can be a beautiful yet subtle way to incorporate this design trend into a home this winter.
# 4 Winter coffee bar ideas
Pinterest searches for “coffee bar ideas” in the kitchen have surged by 117% since May.
How to channel it: A luxury coffee bar is a great addition to a kitchen this winter. When it comes to decorating a coffee bar, go for warm, earthy colors like deep reds, oranges, browns and yellows.

Of course, seasonal flavors—such as vanilla, caramel and peppermint—can help add a wintery twist to your drinks. For an added touch and a sweet treat, include toppings like whipped cream, chocolate shavings and cinnamon.
