To me winter means cozy. It is a time where less is truly more. Time to sit by the fire, watch movies, and just enjoy being home on a cold winter night.

It is my tradition to remove my Christmas decor on December 26th. Many people wait. This blog post is going to be perfect for you no matter which day you decide to remove your Christmas decor.

This year I decided to try something new and transition some of my Christmas decorating items into winter decor. Here is what I have done.

7 Tips for Winter Home Decor after Christmas

1. The Tree

Pack the big Christmas tree away. We want all of our living room space back. If you can stand to have your tree up a little long because you like the glow of the lights, remove all of the ornaments and leave the tree naked. This is such a cozy look.

2. Greenery

Remove all items that are very colorful. Leaving only neutrals, whites and greenery will give the best winter cozy feel.

3. Repurpose

Rearrange some items into new places. Rethink how you were using the items. For example, take a collection of all small trees a create a beautiful winter mantel.

4. Art and photos

Replace any holiday art, or sayings with winter photographs. Think of framing family photos from ski trips or home photos with snow all around. If you live in a warm climate this may look different for you.

5. Candles and Fire

Utilize your white, cream and natural color candles. Even the battery operated ones are still great to use. The glow of the light is warm and cozy.

6. Cleaning

Time to wash all of your throw blankets. Especially if you have any sickness and lots of people in your home during the holidays.

7. Less is more

Declutter as you go. I am a minimalist at heart. Not the type of person who has stark white walls and modern style. Minimal in the sense, I keep what we use and love, and toss anything we don’t. It’s that simple. If you need help with this start here.
