Winter Decor that isn’t Christmas

Every year, after the Christmas decor gets put away, the house feels a little empty and boring. It’s too early to decorate for Valentine’s day and yet I still want to have something pretty and cozy to brighten those long dark winter days. The solution? I decorate my home using winter decor.

Keeping things very neutral with wood tones and faux evergreen trees, I remove the reds from Christmas and any sparkly glitter items. Anything with bows or resembles ornaments are taken away too.

Decor items that feel invoke the cozy feeling of winter such as candles, fur throw pillows, warm throw blankets, are essential. Wood corbels, framed art with botanical prints help keep the space feeling soft and neutral.

The video below shows how I decorated this space using winter decor in action.
