Transitioning to Winter Decor


I don’t know about you, but I got all the Christmas stuff put away this week, except for the Christmas tree. We are wrapping that big guy and trying to wrangle it to the basement all in one piece.  But now, the whole house looks a little dismal and bare. It happens every year at this time.  The weather is cold and dreary, we all just want to stay inside and hunker down under throws and blankets and it takes me a little while into the New Year before my creativity starts coming out again.

Do you feel the same way?

So what do you do when you want your house to look nice and cozy, but it’s not time to decorate for Spring yet?  It’s that in between time that we don’t quite know what to do with.   I wrote a blog post on the Tree Classics blog all about transitioning to Winter décor, so I hope you’ll stop over and give it a read!

Here’s a little sneak peek from fellow bloggers out there!

Why not start on the front porch like Cottage in the Oaks, with welcoming birch logs, lanterns, and a Winter white wreath on the door. Your guests will feel so cozy as they walk in the door.

Designthusiasm shares a gorgeous vignette in front of a sparkly mirror, which also magnifies the available light. Flanking silver candlesticks, fresh flowers and those gorgeous glass trees, give an elegant nod to Winter. She even leaves out a few pretty ornaments on the silver tray to keep the spirit of the Holidays alive.

Fill a simple dough bowl with pinecones, battery candles and a little bit of cotton stems for a sweet and simple Winter centerpiece, from Christina’s Adventures.

Stop on over to Tree Classics for lots more inspiration for Winter decorating!

  1. Thanks for all the great ideas for winter decor. We are really having winter weather in Florida too!
    I watched your video with your mama and friend cooking. That reminds me so much of wonderful family times I experienced. I always love to hear your sweet southern voice. Along with your blog, I read so many blog gs of sweet ladies. I really feel like they are friends.

    • HI, Nancy, I am hearing about all the cold in FL too, not what you’re used to down there. Thank you for coming by!

  2. Rhoda, I am glad to know that I am not the only one that isn’t feeling too inspired! I just want to stay inside and drink hot chocolate and read! Thank you for sharing some great winter ideas! Stay warm!

    • Yes, Pam, it hits me every year after Christmas, but I know we’ll be energized again before too long.

  3. Beautiful. Thank you for the inspiration.

  4. My Christmas decor will be put away this coming weekend, so this post is timely in giving me some ideas of what to keep out and mix into my winter decor. Yesterday morning it was -11 here so “warm and cozy” is definitely a must!

  5. I am kinda liking the blank slate. It gives me a chance to reevaluate what I truly need, want, use and love. However, I am hosting my book club group next week so I need to get things a bit put back together. Love the pine cones with the cotton stems and candles. Have all of that on hand!

    • Yeah, I’m sitting here looking at a mostly blank mantel and foyer table and need to get those all put together. I’ve just texted Jill to see what might work for her!

    I needed this post today! Our house is so depressing now with all the holiday decor put away. You’ve inspired me to decorate for the winter months now.
