Decor after Christmas can be tricky, right? Do you want to go straight into Spring? Or do you want some cozy Winter vibes? It’s really up to you. Last year, I was so over Winter I went straight into all the flowers. This year, I kept some pinecones and winter greens out for some Winter decor. My decor for the winter is very simple. Everything is very neutral, right now. I’m enjoying all the woods, whites, moody blacks, with pops of green. So, let’s get to it!
We recently gave our entryway a mini makeover with picture frame molding. I’ll be sharing a post about all that very soon. I took away all Christmas trees but left some winter (faux) greens and pinecones. You can see some close-up shots here. You can check out additional ways to style an entryway here.
I usually have a mirror on the mantel, but I wanted to put up this artwork that my sis painted for me. It’s HUGE! And it has the perfect rustic winter vibe. I’ve always wanted our barn to be white…maybe someday. I added a DIY’d vase with winter greens and candlesticks. You can see more of my sister’s artwork here.
I love rearranging decor, especially in the built-ins. I really enjoy having a lot of books in the built-ins (seems like that would be their purpose). I added a few more art pieces, as well. The theme continues…woods, whites, with pops of green. Do you see Ralph hanging out in the living room?
I pretty much kept the coffee table decor, minus the red. I really love the dark urn (I thrifted and painted), so I just kept the winter greens and added some olive stems. I switched out the bowl for a lighter wood bowl and added thrifted books and beads. I kept my favorite coffee table books and a favorite candle.
I did a very simple dining table centerpiece for winter. I used a dough bowl, pinecones, and faux greens. Click here to view the short video that I did. I haven’t done a big tablescape in a while. You can check out several winter tablescape ideas here.
I kept the kitchen decor pretty simple, but I did buy some beautiful roses from Trader Joes. Flowers in the winter really boost my mood. Our winters are so long, and it can get so cold, I just love some flowers in the kitchen. I did keep the faux evergreen wreath (I removed the red bow) on the range hood. I have an idea for some artwork that I plan on putting up there after I remove the wreath.
I haven’t really decorated the porch for winter. It’s been so cold, and our dog is a destroyer of all the things…I just haven’t really had the desire to go out there. I hope to get some spring decor out there soon. The mudroom is a work in progress right now. I’m still deciding on paint color. I hope to decide this week!
I hope you were inspired and enjoyed these ideas for rustic winter decor. Let’s all try and stay warm and positive so we can get through these winter months! Who wants to go to Florida to warm up?
Until next time Treasure Hunters!
