Wallpapers of the week: warmth in the cold

warm in cold wotw splash

As we enter the new year, we are celebrating with more wallpapers. This is the beginning of a seven month climb into the Wallpaper of the Week section. If you are keeping close tabs on the installments, we are trying a new platform. Now, readers are encouraged to send in their excellent wallpapers for consideration in the post. We feel like this will further engage our readership and help everyone feel more connected to the site.

With the new format in mind, there are potentially hundreds of submissions that may come any given week. I make it a point to look through the images, but sometimes it is less timely than others. I appreciate everyones’ interest in the section and hope you look forward to it each week…


Currently, the US is in a solid block of ice. Snow storms are disrupting travel, even some of my CES contacts will not be able to make it to the first few days of the show. Although I am a big fan of winter wallpapers, it seems a warm streak would be appreciated. The weather outside is frightful, but the wallpaper images this week are sure to warm you up. The following four images were submitted by dedicated iDB reader, Matthew Clewley. Thanks, Matt!
