Adding Winter Warmth To Your Home

IMG_E5014
Happy 2019 friends!!
The post-Christmas let down can be real folks! All that glam and sparkle suddenly gone, giving way to bare spaces. Putting together new arrangements and vignettes can be hard when all the grand things from Christmas decor are put away.
For more ideas you can visit this post 5 Ways To Beat The Winter Blues In Your Home or this tour from my 2018 winter home tour Neutral Winter Home Tour
Here are a few ideas for sprucing up your home for Winter, yet keeping things simple.

Color pallet

I like to stick with soft, minty, frosty greenery and then add some wood tones with my neutral decor. Branches, pinecones, wood candle holders and wooden bowls or vases all combine well for a Winter pallet and most of the items can just be recycled from your Christmas decor. Warm whites, soft creamy shades of taupe and beige look great with the wood tones and create a cozy soft look for any room in your house.

Arrangements

When putting your Christmas decor away, save any picks you may have that are just plain greenery but maybe have a touch of frost or snow
Look to it. Also, many stores have Christmas greenery marked way down so you could select a few items to incorporate. Just stay away from
The Christmasy Pines with berries etc.

For these arrangements I simply tucked in various pieces of greenery that have a more minty color tone. Then for some warmth, pop in some pinecones or branches from your yard.

I love using paper whites this time of year. You can buy faux or force your own bulbs( and they smell amazing ) They give a little hope of spring ahead and the green and white fit in perfectly with neutral decor. They also look beautiful simply placed in an urn. It’s a pretty touch to add to your kitchen.

Another idea is to use cut branches from your yard, place them in a vase and hang a few pinecones or frosted ornaments from the branches.
Faux snow filled in candle holders also gives that Winter feel and adds a fun touch to an otherwise plain container.

Texture

A collection of knit & fur pillows scattered on your sofa with some cozy chunky blankets will give your room that comfy feel and the mix of textures will give the space warmth and fill up the otherwise empty feel left from Christmas decor past.
You can also use a large basket to fill with extra blankets & pillows and set it near a table, fireplace or chair.

Plants

Purchase a few faux or real houseplants as centerpieces on a table or mixed with some wood accents. They will replace that loss of Christmas greenery, yet still give that presence of nature we so love in our Christmas decor. You can display them in warm textured baskets or wood containers such as crates, bowls or warm pottery crocks.

Candles

To keep that warm lit sparkle in your home, battery operated candles scattered about can keep that winter glow going. I love to use the remote timed candles that I can set to turn on as it starts getting dark and have them turn off at bedtime. They really create a soft glow to your room . You can also use the mini wired lights and place them in a clear canister with some faux greenery to add that soft sparkle.

Adding just a few of these simple elements can help keep the winter blues away and keep some of your holiday sparkle and cozy feels present in your home until Spring makes its appearance.

I want to wish you all a fabulous and joyous 2019 and let you know how much I appreciate your interest in my blog. Your questions and comments mean so much to me and as always, pin away!!
