Is there anything more magical than the wintertime in South Dakota? We adore the fluffy snow, festive holiday decorations, and bright twinkle lights that give everything a cozy glow. However, when the temperatures drop to the low teens, the general consensus around here is that these beautiful days are best enjoyed from the comfort of our warm homes.
If you have a hot tub, you’re in the unique position to bring the warmth of the indoors to your outdoor space. Here are a few tips to help you turn your deck into a cozy winter wonderland!
The “winter wonderland aesthetic” is all about soft colors, such as white, light grey, and charcoal, natural greenery, pinecones, candles, and glitter. To achieve this look in the most economical way possible, we recommend purchasing items that can be reused in future decorating projects. Try purchasing a basic, grey side table and then wrapping a few strands of pine garlands around the legs. When the wintertime is over, you can unwrap the garlands and switch them out for ones covered in brightly-colored flowers. Purchasing items that will work for multiple seasons and styles is a great way to save money for your holiday shopping fund!
If you’re a movie-buff, purchasing an outdoor projector to spice up your hot tub area is an absolute must. For a few hundred dollars, you can get a high-quality projector that can remain up even during harsh weather. Simply slip on your bathing suit, grab a mug of hot cocoa with extra marshmallows, flip on your favorite holiday movie, and hop into the bubbling water of your hot tub. If you’re not in the mood for a movie, you can also turn on a recording of a crackling fireplace, set to the soothing sounds of jazz. In our opinion, that’s a recipe for the world’s most perfect night-in.
Over the past few years, the Danish design ideology “hygge” has picked up an enormous amount of popularity among people from across the world. It refers to the art of decorating your home in a cozy, comfortable way, and a few hallmarks include flickering candles, soft blankets, and fuzzy rugs. A great way to turn your deck into a gathering space that exudes warmth is to incorporate a few hygge elements:
