Winter Decorating: How to Keep It Cozy After Christmas

Happy New Year! After the long year that 2020 was, I’m looking forward to 2021.

I recently took down my Christmas decor. I’m always s surprised by how empty our house looks after taking down all of Christmas decor. Christmas decor gives that cozy feeling. Winter is so dull and stark outside, and I don’t want it to feel like that inside our house too. Today I want to share some tips on how I keep it feeling cozy even after the Christmas decor is put away.

1. Cuddle Up with Cozy Blankets

I draped a fuzzy blanket over the bed in our master.

Your home can’t feel warm and cozy during the winter if you’re not actually warm and cozy while at home. I believe that throw blankets should not be there just for looks, but they’re meant to actually be cuddled up in!

2. Use Greenery

I used a faux cedar garland draped over the church pew in our entryway.

I love using various types of greenery, real and faux, throughout the year in my home. I use winter greens, like pine and cedar, during January and February.

3. Light Some Candles

Brass candlesticks are my favorite.

Candles will always be my favorite way to make a space feel cozy and inviting. The warm glow of a candle during winter will make the space feel welcoming and relaxing.

4. Incorporate More Texture

I used a combination of wood, brass, greenery, and glass on our built in shelves.

Using various textures always adds a cozy, put-together look to a room. I love to use various soft pillows and blankets, along with glass, wood and metal to incorporate various textures into a room.

I hoped these tips gave you a few ideas on how to continue the cozy in your home after all of the Christmas decor is put away.

Thank you for reading and God Bless!
