Decorating after the holidays

It’s been a whirlwind hasn’t it? The crazy busy holiday season has finally come to an end and now your home looks BARE!
When the Christmas tree is put away and the guests have left you alone to a cold house, it’s easy to let the chill of winter settle into the soul. How do you decorate for a season that has no particular appeal? You can’t very well put a bowl of snow on the table. Well let me give you a word to focus on when you begin thinking about decorating your home for winter: cozy. Yes, try to think of everything cozy and infuse it into your home for the season. Here are 10 tips to help you have the warmest decorating at the coldest time of year.

When I look at my home after the holidays I am met with mixed emotions. On one hand, I am overjoyed with how crisp and clean everything looks. The rooms that were decorated for the season now feel so open and spacious! But then I look at those that were not touched over the holidays and I feel as if they are screaming for a refresh.
Is “wintery” decor still allowed?? I mean, winter just arrived but a large majority of winter decor can feel “Christmas-y.” The answer is YES, and we’re all in luck because there are a ton of chic and cozy ideas for decorating after the holidays.

I want to share 7 tips of how to decorate after the holidays 

1)     Bring out the white.. White dishes, white d├ęcor and you can add splashes of your favorite color

2)     Add some greenery, personally I love the look of fresh crisp greenery. It is so pretty and styled just right it really adds even a romantic touch.

3)     2 words- Cozy THROWS- keep them around, keep them out, let them add the warmth to your home on those cold Christmas evenings when you and your love cuddle while watching a movie or in my case your fav team playing hockey

4)     Add some fresh new pieces of furniture with Furniture box.. I recently came across this and already my shopping cart is overflowing because the pieces are gorgeous.
a.     Like this coffee table
b) or this dining room table and chairs: 

5)     Keep the counter clutter free, get some new organizational pieces and let the creativity flow.

6)      Get Creative and set up a  Hot Cocoa Bar... Set up this log cabin-inspired hot cocoa bar for a winter party or a cozy night indoors. 

7)  Decorate Your Front Door for Winter
Wreaths and door hangings are a great way to celebrate every season. You'll love this winter wreath basket tutorial by DIY Inspired. It's easy to customize this winter-bouquet-in-a-basket and use whatever decorative elements you have on hand. Once winter is over, switch up the contents with dried flowers and you have a new look for spring. 

When Old Man Winter is howling outside, it's a good idea to add a dose of cheer to your home. Luckily, it's easy to decorate for winter—the key is to use natural elements, touches of greenery, a bit of shine, and the soothing hue of winter white
