Decorating for Winter

Once we pack up our Christmas decorations, our homes seem so bare, don’t they? It’s like me walking about without my jewelry (the one thing that makes me feel naked). This year, I just couldn’t bring myself to let go of a few items I’d normally pack away with Christmas decor, so I decided to conscientiously (re)decorate with winter in mind.

Here are a few vignettes of how I #winterizemyhome. White flowers (not just for spring!) add a touch of winter white throughout the home–don’t be afraid to use them, as well as some of the greens from your Christmas decor.


The dining table went from Christmas galore to a streamlined winter look–I kept a few greens and candles, some of the lace cutouts (reminiscent of snowflakes!), and the burlap runner.


Even the bar and wine carts got a sprucing up (or paring down) for winter (get those unique chalkboard set here [affiliate link]):

Remember those Christmas decorations I couldn’t pack away? Well, they seem to fit well for a winter-wonderland theme:


Keeping the kitchen simple was the objective–a few milk jugs in a crate, one faux fir tree and some white flowers did the trick:


And in honor of Jonas, the big, bad blizzard that just ran through our region, enjoy some picturesque shots of snowfall at The Farmed House:
