Decorating after Christmas can be a bit challenging. After the holidays, the reds and greens of Christmas seem out of place, but the house just feels so bare with everything put away. Not to worry, we found some great inspiration for your winter decor after Christmas. Here are our best ideas for keeping your home cozy and inviting.
Winter decorating doesn't mean that you have to take down all the Christmas decor. A good rule of thumb is to separate the 'Christmas' from the 'Winter' decor. The red and green plaid is definitely in the Christmas category, while snowflakes, icicles, evergreens and metallics can carry you through the rest of winter.
This winter mantle is a great example of how to transition from Christmas to winter decor.
Colors that work well together for post-Christmas winter are neutrals, soft greens and metallics. We are so fond of snowy winter whites, they look so crisp and clean!
The end of Christmas doesn't mean you have to put away all of the twinkling lights. Brightly colored Christmas lights should be put away, while small white lights can be styled appropriately for continued use.
Garlands and wreaths can also be toned down for use throughout the season. We love the look of this gorgeous winter farmhouse living room!
Galvanized buckets and ironstones are perfect vessels for decorating no matter the season! We love bringing a bit of nature inside with evergreen springs/picks and pinecones. Fill your buckets with winter greens or use larger buckets to store blankets.
Another classic way to decorate for winter is with vintage skis, sleds and snowshoes. This is a timeless look that works all winter long. Come by for a visit and see our amazing selection of antique skis, sleds and snowshoes.
