Christmas is over but I’m still alllll about some cozy vibes! That is one word that I hope people would use to describe my home more than anything is cute and Cozy!
I’m sharing some great ideas on how to bring in cozy winter living room decor to transition your home after Christmas for those Winter vibes!
I know by now many of you have taken your Christmas decorations down or you are in the process of doing it or like me, you know you need to do it but you just love it because it lifts your spirits and brings you joy! Well I decided I can have my cake and eat it too, So to speak. Below are some great transition ideas to give you the best of both worlds, at least till spring that is!
#1 REMOVE THE RED
Here at my house this is the first thing I do, remove all the red. Unless, of course, you decorate for Valentines Day right after Christmas. Red is a classic Christmas color so taking it out of the equation brings everything down a notch.
#2 REMOVE THE DECOR THAT SCREAMS CHRISTMAS
You know, your Merry Christmas Sign, your Santa Clause statue or your nativity scene.
#3 KEEP YOUR WINTER GREENERY
I love to keep my winter greenery out, with the fairy lights still on, of course! I love all the war and cozy vibes it gives off. I love sitting down in the evening and just basking in the warm glow! It really helps me to relax for the nite!
#4 KEEP IT NEUTRAL AND COZY
Winter is the perfect time to display those cozy knit or fur pillows and chunky blankets, a must for winter decor ideas. Not just because the texture brings warmth but it also provides you a coziness that makes you feel super comfy. You can place your throw blanket anywhere you want, drape it on the sofa, lay it on the floor, or throw it over a ladder rung like I do. Cozy is my favorite and I love a good excuse to wrap up in a warm blanket and watch a movie.
#5 CANDLES, CANDLES, CANDLES
There’s just something about candlelight that relaxes the mind. Candles are also a great way to appeal to the sense of smell. Even if you have small children and worry about them getting too close, you can still keep candles lit on high shelves or countertops. I don’t have a fireplace right now so I create the look with candles…..ohhhla la…….the scents, the vibe it creates, I just want to snuggle down!
As much as I love Christmas it always feels good to get back to a normal routine and get the house back in order. I hope these simple tips make it easy for you to transition your own home from Christmas to winter. I would love to hear when you’re taking your decor down or if you have any tips on making the transition. Let me know in the comments. See you guys next week!
