5 Easy Winter Decorating Ideas After Christmas!
After we pack away all of our Christmas decor our homes can feel so bare and empty!
Our rooms often feel lackluster, dull and boring when the holiday sparkle and glitter are removed.
On top of that, it’s cold outside and winter brings with it gray, glum skies which can make our spaces feel very dark.
Today I’m also sharing my favorite decorating accessories and 5 ideas that will add gorgeous warmth, texture and color to your spaces for winter.
Winter decorating is all about simplifying and adding layers – lets see how.
These 5 Design Tips will give your home a beautiful post Christmas, cozy, inviting feeling for winter!
1. Candles and Candle Holders
Candles add the perfect amount of glow and visual warm to any room. Use real candles or battery operated flickering flame candles. I’m obsessed with battery operated candles because of their safety and dancing flickering flame which is just stunning!
I always have a candle or two in a tray on my coffee table, one on my kitchen island tray, kitchen countertops and a few on my mantel.
Shop these beautiful candles and candle holders!

What a serene way to brighten up a room during cold dark winter days.

Velvet is one of the most tactile, luxurious feeling fabrics! It’s warm as well which makes it perfect for winter decorating.
Adding velvet pillows or a velvet chair or sofa to a room will instantly add visual warmth to a room.
We absolutely love our performance velvet swivel chair in stone! The neutral velvet fabric and pleated back and sides add loads of texture to our living room!

Throw blankets are a must for wrapping up in during winter months! Tassels, pom poms and fringe accents add more texture.
4. Accent Mirrors
Accent mirrors will bounce natural light and candle light around and make a space feel brighter!
5. Tropical trees, florals and botanicals – real or artificial!
Add a couple of tropical trees or flower arrangements to liven up your rooms, add natural color and a pop of greenery!
Trees will add height and a focal point too! This 6 foot fiddle leaf fig tree is a great way to fill an empty corner. It has bendable branches so you can make them look very full and natural.
This faux floral arrangement is from HomeGoods.
Also, pampas grass is a huge design trend for 2020!
Add a few fronds to a vase for your mantel or table – they are gorgeous and will add a ton of texture to a room!
