Embrace the warmth of hearth and home during the long winter months with cozy winter decor!
Welcome to a fun winter blog hop where my blogging friends and I are sharing how we are “Keeping it Cozy” in our homes during the long, cold months of winter. You will find many other creative ways to keep it cozy this winter by visiting all the lovely hop participant’s posts at the end of this post.
We are having a real winter here in KY with two big snowfalls already this January! “Keeping it Cozy” and staying indoors is what I’m all about! Today I will show you a few of my easy go-to decorating tips for creating a cozy and beautiful winter home
Add Plenty of Cozy Blankets and Pillows
If you and your family prefer to hibernate through the long months of winter like I do, you’ll want to keep plenty of cozy pillows and throws close at hand. Neutral textiles have a particularly calm and cozy look after all the festive colors of holiday decor.
Neutral plaid blankets or chunky knit throws are wonderful for snuggling up with a cup of tea or a good book.
Green is also a neutral in my decorating book so I use green pillows year round.
These olive-mossy green velvet pillows are so pretty for winter.
Add Rustic and Woodsy Elements
As you have seen above, I love using deer themed decor and rustic woodsy elements year round. Greenery, little pine trees, pine cones, birch logs and antlers are using in various vignettes and displays in each room.
The deer are plentiful in the forest across the street and we enjoy watching them play in the snow during the winter months. This definitely influences my decorating.
After Christmas I easily transitioned my adopted vintage lawn deer in a French basket to winter by removing the orange slices, red berries and plaid ribbon.
I added fairy lights for extra winter magic and coziness.
In previous winters my lawn deer has bedded down for winter in a giant dough bowl filled with winter evergreens on the shabby antique sideboard.
In the past I have used the French basket on the farm table for winter styled with rustic and woodsy winter elements.
Last year I used a small dough bowl filled with winter evergreens, antlers and a trio of battery operated candles.
Keep it Cozy with Greenery, Lights, and Candles
After Christmas I always leave some greenery little trees and garlands with lights to create a cozy ambiance during the January and early February. Candles real or faux really make things seem super cozy.
Battery operated candles have come a long way. I love the cozy feeling they create and keep them on non-stop during winter.
Little battery operated candles and white lights can be found in every nook, cranny and corner of our winter home.
In recent years I have discovered the beauty and ease of sweet little battery operated lights. I love how they look on little this little tree beside my primitive snowman in the breakfast nook.
They are as perfect for tucking down in wintery jar vignettes or cloches.
Warm Up by Dreaming of Spring Using Winter Plants and Flowers, Fresh or Faux
Paperwhites, amaryllis or fresh grocery store bouquets can help brighten the winter days and chase the winter blues away.
Having fresh or faux flowers around the house makes it seem as if spring isn’t so far away! For now, I am enjoying the slow, cozy days of winter with hopes of spring gardening ahead!
