Transitioning from Christmas to winter decor is a great way to keep your home festive from Christmas until Valentine’s Day. Furthermore, you can reuse some of your favorite decor items if you keep the theme neutral.
First, start by putting away all Christmas seasonal items that are directly related to the holiday and have seasonal messages. It is OK to leave faux and real greens, wood, and candles.
Second, add some cozy elements to your home’s interior such as chunky blankets, firewood, a hot cocoa station, and pinecones. Above all, the idea is to create an oasis of coziness in the winter wonderland.
If your Christmas decor was already rustic and neutral, your task is even easier. Keep in mind, that for winter decor less is more.
With our collection of easy winter decor ideas, you will transform your space into a calm and serene heaven. In fact, it is exactly what your family needs after the hustle and bustle of the holidays.
