Anyone else feel totally lost on what day it is? Seriously, my brain is a blurry mess this week after Christmas. And my house is a blur too–every room looks like a bomb went off. Yesterday I was taking Christmas home decor down and while I was in the middle of doing that, I decided to start rearranging furniture. Of course that only added to the mess and before I knew it things got out of hand. Everything is in shambles now, so I figured today it would be fun to gather up some winter decor ideas for after Christmas. I want to share a few quick things that inspire me this time year because I feel like my approach to winter home decor is a little untraditional. In years past, I loved using decor like pinecones, garland, and flocked wreaths to get through the winter months. And now I prefer a much lighter look–one that is simple and fresh and almost non-wintery if that makes sense. Here’s five ideas that I love right now:
First I can’t help but include this gorgeous dining room from my wannabe-BFF, Joanna Gaines. I love how she incorporated so much greenery in this beautiful winter tablescape. It’s hearty and warm, which is perfect for the cold months of winter, but it still has a light and fresh feel.
There is so much yummy texture in this beautiful photo from Cynthia Harper. This little corner is giving me tons of inspiration and I think it’s perfect for winter–lots of cozy textures and chunky knits.
So much bright and fresh goodness to love in this shot from Love Grows Wild. Again I’m loving the simplicity of this look–it’s so classic, clean, and easy, which is a nice change after the busyness of Christmas decor.
This super cozy living room from Nesting with Grace is a favorite of mine. I love how she incorporates those twinkling lights and loads of soft layers. This is definitely a warm, yet simple corner for winter!
I’m obsessed with this bright and sunny living room from Bless’er House. I love the contrast of the black doors and the fresh flowers are just beautiful. I LOVE having fresh flowers around the house and they’re especially nice during winter when everything is so dark and gray.
Well, I hope this little roundup inspires you to take a simple approach to your after-Christmas home decor. I know these ideas aren’t exactly the typical winter decor, but I think they’re all light and fresh which is what I’m craving right now. Just easy, simple, and beautiful–you can’t go wrong with that, right? Right. Now here’s a few cozy winter items I love:
Well I better get back to my decluttering and rearranging all the things. Thanks so much for stopping in today, I’ll see you back here sooooooooon! Here are a few more winter decor posts you might want to check out:
