A Wintergreen Home Tour

decorating with greenery for winter Beautiful winter home tour with greenery

Hello friends and welcome to our cozy “wintergreen” home! Even though the weather around here has been unbelieveably spring-like so far this January without a sign of snow, I have still decorated our home with cozy winter treasures including lots of greenery. Today I am excited to be joining 23 blogging friends for the Cozy Winter Home Tours! You can check out all of the beautiful winter decorating ideas via the links at the end of this post. *This post contains affiliate links.



Transition from Christmas to Winter with Faux Evergreens and Natural Elements


Traditional and vintage Christmas decor Christmas home tour

A Merry Christmas Home Tour

It’s always hard to say goodbye to all of the festive holiday decor isn’t it? This year I really loved decorating our home for Christmas in a very traditional way with lots of green and red. With returning to full time teaching, I was late getting everything decorated so I wasn’t ready to say goodbye to all of my holiday treasures right away. After Christmas I decided to ease out of the holidays by simply removing all of the main Christmas  and red decorations, and leaving out the greenery, woodsy winter accents and snowy decor.


Once the stockings, colorful beaded garlands, festive fruits, red tartan throws and pillows were packed away, all that was left was a simple and beautiful neutral, “wintergreen” scheme. I left the faux cypress garland on the mantel and lighted garland on the staircase banister to keep things from looking dreary after taking down our main tree in the music room and all of the other colorful Christmas decor. 





I switched out my red fair isle buck pillow from Christmas with the same beautiful deer lumbar pillow that I first shared on last year’s Keeping It Cozy Winter Home tour.



It is definitely one of my favorite pillows! I just love it combined with a green velvet green pillow. Actually I love my green velvet pillows so much that I ended up keeping them out all year last year and plan to do so this year too! decided to keep them out year round. 


Little deer and deer antlers can be seen all through our home, especially during the winter months. This pair of fuzzy vintage deer have been under glass all through the holidays and will remain until spring along with some other woodsy-winter treasures on my styled tray vignette.






My vintage garden deer always beds down on a pretty evergreen and pinecone garland for the winter months on top of our antique sideboard.



The dining room is full of more wintergreen touches. I am using the same dough bowl centerpiece that I shared on my Christmas Dining Room Tour with a beautiful variety of faux greenery, moss spheres, pine cones, snow balls and olive green ornaments.


I simply removed the holly, cloved oranges and pomegranates for an easy Christmas to winter transition. I also added some warm battery-operated acorn lights.




Wintergreen elements  such as mossy spheres and paperwhites can also easily tranistion right into early spring.


I also kept out my pretty flocked tree and a few neutral Belsnickel Santas that are reimagined as “old man winter” figures during the winter months.






This “icy” New Year’s vignette with vintage icicle ornaments, glass knobs and silver mecury glass ornaments will remain throughout January.





I removed the red and gold bulbs and vintage style handmade candy canes, but kept the olive green bulbs and tarnished silver mercury glass beads on the flocked tree. I replaced the Christmas ornaments with wintry hand made icicle ornaments, silver bulbs, glass prism ornaments, and faux antlers.  I love how this winter-themed tree turned out, and it certainly could be decorated for Christmas this way too. I think I will share more about my winter woods tree in a new post next year for Christmas.





This cozy corner of the dining room with the tree and all the vintage French style shabby treasures has been so fun to decorate during the holidays and winter!




I picked up a couple of little twiggy trees on after Christmas clearance from Target and they are just too cute!





I don’t decorate with very much silver for Christmas, but this silver-wintry Santa and little snowy white Santa on an urn make an appearance every year from New Year’s Eve through the end of January.






More greenery adorns the antique china cabinet and faux fireplace mantel. 


 I moved my vintage Italian nativity from on top of the antique organ in the music room to the shelf above the faux fireplace in the dining room to enjoy for another week or two. 


I actually love the nativity here simply flanked by two faux evergreen trees in gold urns. I think this is where I will display it next Christmas for a change from the organ where I usually put it.


All the mossy green colors in the nativity just match beautifully with my the rest of the wintergreen theme.



On into the cozy kitchen nook the mossy green winter garden theme continues. Once again this year I am using my paperwhites farmhouse sign along with some beautiful faux paperwhites and faux winter garden treasures in the back corner.





It has been two weeks now since I packed away the majority of the Christmas decorations and I have to say I think it is probably time to pack the rest of the wintry-Christmas away this weekend. I am craving even more neutral winter decor with less clutter before spring arrives. Garden time is already on my mind so the paperwhites, mossy spheres and some wintergreen garden elements will remain through spring.

I will be spending my winter days dreaming of spring home improvements including a kitchen makeover and updating our entryway with new tile or maybe a simple concrete polishing technique.  Now it’s time to continue being inspired by all the lovely winter home tours being shared today.

    After reading this, I think I want to add even more green to my home! I love your pretty vignettes and how your home looks so cozy for winter. That kitchen nook of yours is always one of my favorite spaces you share…and the paperwhites are perfect for that spot. Thanks again for hosting this inspiring Cozy Winter Homes Tour!

    Your home looks beautiful decorated for winter with silver and green. I so much enjoyed looking at all of your beautiful decor. Hopefully, it will soon start to feel like winter and maybe you’ll get a snow day from school so that you can spend a “bonus day” enjoying being cozy in your home.

    Wonderful winter look Amber. I love all the little items that you incorporated into your vignettes. I remembered to keep out some of our greenery when packing up the Christmas decorations. Now I wish that I had kept more. Next year! Thank you for hosting another fabulous home tour.

    First, Amber, thank you for the time you take to devote to organizing all of us to share these wonderful hops! Your home is perfectly cozy for Winter! I love the use of all of the deer, they remind me of all of the deer I saw around my daughter’s home up in Maryland, and can just imagine them peeking out from snowy woods! As always a visit to Follow the Yellow Brick Home is a visual delight!

    Amber, I always love seeing your home dressed up! I finally put my Nativity set away today but want to leave my tree up–one more day (which I have been saying for several days now!). You inspired me to pick up a damaged (lost knob!) Nativity cloche this year! I love your Belsnickles; I think it would be a lovely name for another cat!

    Amber, your home looks so lovely and cozy for winter! I fell in love with that paperwhites sign, too! I’m glad you’re embracing the season a little longer. It’s so much work to decorate for Christmas only to put it all back in storage right away. Your decor looks so stunning and on point for a long winter. Next year I hope to include some velvet pillows, too.
    Thanks for organizing a great hop! I hope the new job is going well for you!

    Amber, just don’t know how you do it all (and so beautifully) with a full time job and raising a family?! Your holiday decorations translate wonderfully into winter home decor. As pretty as your home is for Christmas, I enjoyed being able to see and appreciate many little details — less is more I guess? Or seeing the forest from the trees? Loved that faux cypress garland on your mantle; I’d never guess it wasn’t real. And that garden deer — bee still my heart!
