I first off just wanted to say THANK YOU to all of you for your overwhelming support on this blog. As much as this is my little corner of the world where I get to inspire, chat and be me – it wouldn’t be nearly as much fun without YOU, so thank you from the bottom of my heart.
My goal for 2019 is to amplify my reach even further, but I will talk goals closer to New Years.
Today I really wanted to get on here and chat about Cozy Winter Decor after Christmas. I know for me, taking down the decor always makes me so sad. On one hand, I love to declutter and have a fresh home, but on the other hand I’m so sad to let all the coziness go.
Since before Christmas I’ve been scoring the Pinterest world on winter decor for after Christmas and I couldn’t find much – it mostly only came up with Christmas decor or regular decor. Well friends, today I’m here to share my take on Cozy Winter Decor that isn’t festive, yet still overly cozy.
I also want to be 100% honest with you, I haven’t taken my tree down yet because I just can’t. It’s so pretty.. but I’ve taken down everything else in our home.
I have an amazing eucalyptus garland that I was using back in Fall and I put it on my mantle with some twinkle lights. Those will be staying far into the New Year as I’m in a twinkle light obsession right now.
If you can remember from our Holiday Home Walk Through, I had these wall sconces above our kitchen window. I loved them in there, but mostly only I saw them as guests don’t really go into our kitchen, so I’ve moved them to our mantle. Yes, they do not work, it’s just the coziness they bring to our mantle. I also am bringing some darker tones into our home right now. Don’t get me wrong, still love white, yet I wanted a bit of dimension. I feel like the darker stains and shades in this room help cozy it up.
Also I need to mention something because it’s DRIVING ME NUTS. We planked the fireplace, you can find the DIY here. But due to the extreme heat from our gas fireplace, the planks have moved slightly making the sides uneven. We plan to get crown moulding for the top and sides, but haven’t gotten around to it yet.. so please don’t think we did that terrible job. It’s purely from the heat.
K, I got that off my chest, now let’s move on.
I reused the DIY Candles I made in December on my mantle and layered some artwork with my mirror. I love how mirrors totally open up a space and add light and I love the sweet piece of art adds a cozy factor. You can find that piece of art, here.
Back in December I painted the fireplace and I’m still loving it. There is still a ton of texture on my fireplace, yet it’s one colour and I can decorate around it easier!
I’m also still reusing the cream buffalo pillows I DIY’d in December, which I still need to do a tutorial on. I can’t sew – so If I can make them, so can you! I ended up making four and I love them!
I also added baskets on my wall for some more texture. Filling up blank walls with texture helps to add coziness to your home. It’s probably why I love the Farmhouse look so much as everything is so cozy. Basically, cozy is my middle name.
Lastly, I layered my living room rugs, which is a total trend right now. I found this faux cow hide rug and I knew I had to have it in my home. It’s only 179 PLUS an additional 10% off, so go grab it!! I’ll link it below also.
On the coffee table I just added a pile of ivory candles, old books and some prayer beads – easy peasy!
To create cozy winter decor you need to think: Layering, Textures, Creams and Warmth. Wallah! Easy Cozy Winter Decor!
So far, I’ve only decorated my living room and entrance, so that is all I’ve snapped for you today.. but as I decorate the other areas of my home, I’ll blog about them too!
I hope you enjoyed the few tips and you have fun undecorating your home and making it overly cozy!
What are you most sad about when the Holidays go?
