Cold Days, Shining Lights (December 2023 Wallpapers Edition) As the year is coming to a close, many of us feel rushed, meeting deadlines, finishing off projects, or preparing for the upcoming holiday season. So how about some beautiful, wintery desktop wallpapers to cater for some fresh inspiration and get you in the mood for December (and the holidays, if you’re celebrating)? As every month since more than twelve years already, artists and designers from across the globe once again got their ideas bubbling and created wallpaper designs to sweeten up your December. They come in versions with and without a calendar and can be downloaded for free. As a little bonus goodie, we also added a selection of December favorites from our wallpapers archives to the collection that are just waiting to be rediscovered, so maybe you’ll spot one of your almost-forgotten favorites in here, too. A huge thank you to everyone who took on the challenge and shared their designs with us — this post wouldn’t exist without you! Happy December! You can click on every image to see a larger preview , We respect and carefully consider the ideas and motivation behind each and every artist’s work. This is why we give all artists the full freedom to explore their creativity and express emotions and experience through their works. This is also why the themes of the wallpapers weren’t anyhow influenced by us but rather designed from scratch by the artists themselves. Submit a wallpaper! Did you know that you could get featured in our next wallpapers post, too? We are always looking for creative talent .

In the part of America I live in, there is snowfall every December. While the snow is falling, I can see gorgeous Cardinals flying in and out of my patio. The intriguing color palette of the bright red of the Cardinals, the white of the flurries and the brown/black of dry twigs and fallen leaves on the snow-laden ground fascinates me a lot, and inspired me to create this quaint and sweet, hand-illustrated surface pattern design as I wait for the snowfall in my town!” — Designed by Gyaneshwari Dave from the United States.
