Christmas and New Year’s are over with and all the decor is packed up. So it’s time we start thinking about winter decorating.
Below is a collage of things that make me happy during winter.
These are all elements I like to decorate with come wintertime.
- Green house plants remind me of nature
- My little portable fireplace that keeps me warm and looks so pretty
- Red tulips I pick up at Trader Joe’s
- Good books to read
- Music that speaks to me
- Candles to make it feel cozy
Below I’ve found photos of winter decorating by various bloggers. I hope you enjoy them and that they provide inspiration for your own home during these cold gray months before spring.
County Road 407 posted about decorating her entryway 3 different ways. What you see above is one of the three decorated entryways.
All the green she’s used relaxes me and reminds me of plants emerging in the springtime.
Follow The Yellow Brick Home likes to use botanicals and garden decor to decorate for the winter months.
Garden decor reminds us that soon winter will pass. And that we will be digging in the dirt before we know it.

Sarah Joy has her own tips and tricks to liven your home up during the gray winter months.
She says the first thing she does is remove any red decor leftover from Christmas.

5. Zevy Joy
Zevy Joy decorated her living space in neutrals. The whites and beiges look great for winter, but I think I’d have to add some color come springtime.
7. Love Grows Wild
This Love Grows Wild blog post was actually meant for Christmas. But it could also be used for winter decorating. A cute little nook with a table, chairs, and table decor look very cozy. I can imagine sitting there with a cup of hot cocoa.

Liz at Liz Marie’s blog brings out the fresh greenery and pinecones. You might add candles to light up the scenery on a shelf. (But if it’s on a shelf, I would use faux candles due to the danger of fire.)
Winter Season Decorating:
As they say, for everything there is a season.
Winter can sometimes be fleeting. But I like to cozy up my home while the wind rages outside and the cold air surrounds my window.
I plug in my wax melt electric warmer and the scent I choose that day drifts through the rooms of my apartment.
Come wintertime, I like to decorate with warm throws, scented candles, and house plants. Anything that makes my home feel cozy and warm until spring arrives.
(And I’ll be doing this, making my home cozy, at the new apartment soon! Three weeks from today.)
