Well the holidays are officially over and that means we’re smack dab in the middle of boring-cold-winter now. Womp womp womp. And if you’re like me, the house probably feels a bit cold and stale after all the Christmas decor came down. It’s a conundrum, really. I mean, on one hand I LOVE the feeling of a clean, de-cluttered house, but on the other hand it feels a bit blah without all the holiday decor, right? And then the challenge is to figure out how to bring that cozy feeling back to each room so it’s not so dull and dreary. I know lots of you are probably in that same weird place right now, so today I thought it would be fun to share how to make any space cozy after Christmas. Just follow my simple steps and BAM–instant cozy!
How to Make Any Space Cozy After Christmas
Here are my go-to tips for how to make any space cozy after Christmas. These cozy essentials will work year round too–they’re sure to bring any room to life!
- Add plants + greenery. Alllll the greenery. Real or faux, either will work.
- Get chunky blankets & lots of throw pillows. Trust me. They make all the difference.
- Add fresh artwork. Try sprucing up your walls some new artwork–botanical prints are my favorite!
- Candles. Lots of candles.
- Don’t forget texture! Wicker baskets and old books are my favorite.
Ok now that we’ve established my cozy essentials, let’s put it into action. Here’s how my living room looked after the Christmas decor came down:
Pretty boring, right? Definitely not cozy and very blah. I obviously had some work to do. Now here’s how it looks after I added all five of my cozy essentials.
So much more cozy now! This space went from boring and blah to warm and inviting with only a few changes. The biggest help came with adding in lots of greenery (some faux and some real) and then lots of texture in the form of chunky blankets, wicker baskets, and old books. Oh and I also added a pair of botanical prints over in the corner!
I like this look for winter because it’s just simple and cozy. Nothing super fancy is happening here, but I love it. Plus I shopped my stash to decorate this entire room. I didn’t have to buy one darn thing to bring this space to life, which is a total win!
Well I hope this helped if you’re trying to make any space in your home cozy after Christmas. Like I said earlier, these are my go-to tips and they work every single time. It’s like magic, really. Cozy magic.
