After Thanksgiving, it's time for homeowners to consider putting away autumnal decorations and start pondering what to use to give a residence a wintry feel.

The Chicago Sun-Times reports that one new and fashionable trend is arranging winter bouquets throughout an abode. This can add a touch of green to a hallway or dining room, while also offering a chance for homeowners to flex their creative muscles.

These aren't traditional bouquets, but wild and rugged ones that bring an element of the outdoors into a home. Individuals can even fashion their own bouquets from pine cones, cedar branches and other greenery and place them inside a vase.

To add accents of vibrant color, the news source suggests placing roses or lilies alongside the arrangement.

Vases aren't the only option, either. One can choose to spice it up by going with an urn or a clear glass container. Flea market items may be the best holders for bouquets, because they automatically have character.

Those who are looking to add more rustic charm to a home may also want to use wood blinds as window treatments. The warm tones of these blinds will bring an understated dignity to any room.
