The Christmas season has come to an end. Unfortunately, it is time to take on the daunting task of tidying up the decorations. Though the holidays are over, it is still the winter season. So, how do you transition your Christmas Decorations to Winter? Below are a few tips to ensure your home maintains a cozy winter aesthetic without the holiday decorations.
You can still leave your tree up after Christmas, but if you still want a tidier area, you can start by removing the ornaments. You can leave the ribbon and other decorations that are more winter than Christmas. By doing this, you still have a wintery tree, just without the extra clutter of Christmas ornaments. The clean tree will look aesthetic in your space, and leaving it up gives you more time to take care of it on a different day.
This is a great time to organize your Christmas storage bins; try separating the colours and different types of decor.
Now that your Christmas tree looks like a winter tree, you can put away other colourful Christmas decorations. The white decor still keeps the winter aesthetic without the extra added colour. Leave out decor that is winter appropriate such as white trees, deer, houses, or other pieces that are not entirely related to Christmas.
When organizing your storage bins, don’t forget to leave room for the winter decor you have left out still. This will make it easier to tidy up when the warmer weather arrives. Provide a neutral palette throughout your home for the rest of the cooler months to maintain a cozy atmosphere. Clearing the visual clutter will ease your mind and allow you to feel refreshed throughout the beginning of the new year.
Add cozy textiles such as blankets and pillows to maintain a comfortable, warm environment. Adding accessories such as twinkle lights or candles will bring the room together, setting the perfect mood for the cold weather.
Remember, this transition is from Christmas to winter, so avoid adding anything related to spring. There are still many cooler months to come, so maintaining a neutral cozy atmosphere is key. Try to get rid of as much clutter as possible and keep the simple decorations that add warmth to the space.
After Christmas, it is still nice to have some decorations around. Try and locate a mantel or an entrance table where you can lay out some of your winter decor. You can reuse some trees, houses, or garlands to make a simple yet attention-drawing winter feature. Adding twinkle light will set the tone and add more warmth to your home.
Using garland is a great way to create a snowy winter scene. Decorate your mantel or table with these winter decorations to maintain the snowy atmosphere without the extra clutter.
Deciding what to take down and what to keep up can be challenging. Remember to stick to neutral tones and remove anything that feels too cluttered. Add warmth with textured blankets, pillows, and extra touches like twinkle lights. Creating a cozy winter home is a great way to start the new year and keep comfortable during the remaining cold months.
