Brick wall. I’ve hit one. While this isn’t actually a REAL problem to have 😉, I do love making my house feel homey and sort of using it like a canvas for creativity….but the problem is that no creativity is flowin’ these days regarding winter decor! 😩 I don’t know if it was the insanity of doing two Christmas decor set-ups in only one season this year for the magazine shoot we had or what, but I am just drawing a BLANK while trying to decorate for winter! I’m wanting a comfy, cozy, neutral vibe with a lot less, well, LESS than I had out for Christmases #1 and #2 😉, but…I just can’t get started. The ol’ brains are tired, y’all.
Thought maybe some of you might be feeling this way after the happy swirl of Christmas decor and festivity, so I thought I’d share some of the inspo that has really stuck out to me this week while trying to find my rhythm as we move into the chilly winter months! How to get a finished decor feel without the clutter of holiday cheer? Check out these beautiful ideas and homes below, and let me know in the comments which look is speaking to you!
Cinnamon Sticks to add aroma and warmth
While usually associated with fall and Christmas, I think it could be fun to still incorporate cinnamon sticks into winter decor! Would add such a yummy fragrance to any space, plus they are still a nice neutral to work with. I think my favorite from above are the wrapped linen napkins with sprigs of evergreen and cinnamon sticks. Simple and beautiful.
Candles, Candles and more Candles!
With four little ones plus three cats, we sometimes opt for battery-operated candles, but either way, nothing creates a cozy, warm, moody-in-a-good-way atmosphere like a whole lotta candles grouped together. Tapers or pillars, brass or painted wood candlesticks, whatever the grouping, white candles for a winter vibe works for me!
Cozy Blankets and Pillows with a seat near the fireplace
I may or may not have a slight blanket/throw pillow addiction, but there’s never a better time to layer up your cozy spaces with soft, plush throws and pillows to create a snuggled up vibe to keep away the winter chill! One of my favorite ways to decorate in winter is to layer lots and lots of neutral pillows and blankets of all different textures. It creates visual interest while sticking to a wintery-neutral color palette that I love!
Leave the Naked Trees Up!
I love the snowy look of flocked Christmas trees, and, once the ornaments are removed, the really can give off such a beautiful wintery forrest vibe…maybe just leave ’em up a little longer! 😉
Hope this gave you buddies some winter decor inspo, and I think rounding this up for you has given me to push I need to get things looking a little less bare around here, ha! Which wintery touch draws you most? Any other ideas to share with us?
