13 Fabulous Winter Home Decor Ideas for a Cozy Space

How do you decorate your home after the holidays are over? After the Christmas decorations have been removed, it’s time for adding winter decor. Here are 13 fabulous winter home decor ideas to give you inspiration to create a cozy space for the winter months.

After the glitz and bling of Christmas decor, it’s so nice to take a breath and tone down our home decor for the winter season.

Do you wonder how to transition from holiday decor to winter decor? 

And then, what is winter decor? 

Let’s talk about what it takes to create a home that feels wintery without feeling cold.

First, let’s look at how to prepare our homes for winter decorating. 

Winter decor is a more minimal approach to decorating our homes. The colors can be inspired by nature with a softly neutral palette. Or you may choose to mix those neutral hues with rich deep colors of green or blue.

Lots of natural materials and texture are part of winter decor style.

How to Get Ready for Winter Decor After Christmas

  1. When packing up your Christmas decorations, discard any that have broken parts, pieces missing or ones that just look old. 
  2. Pack up decorations that are in good condition, but you no longer want. Donate them to schools, churches or women’s shelters.
  3. Discard any old lights that do not work.
  4. After all the Christmas boxes are put away, Give your home a good dusting and vacuuming.
  5. Remove any shiny, glitzy decorations or accessories.
  6. Set aside to re-use seasonally appropriate winter décor.

After all the Christmas decorations are packed away and the house has been dusted and tidied up, we can now focus on adding all those winter decor accessories.

You want to decide on your winter color scheme. These natural colors of the seasonal outdoors work best:

  • winter white
  • cream
  • ecru
  • taupe
  • shades of brown
