Your home never seems as lackluster and bare as it does immediately after packing away your Christmas decorations at the end of the year. Our secret to overcoming the January blues and post-holiday decor dreariness is simple: decorate your home for the season. Winter offers the perfect opportunity to treat yourself to all things cozy, calm and bright for your home.

Add Frosty Hues

Embrace the icy temps and snowy forecast by incorporating frosty neutrals throughout your home. Champagne velvets, dove gray knits, mercury glass and bleached wood accents make failproof additions to most interior color palettes.

Retire the Red

Another tip? Stowaway the rich red touches that could be associated with winter holidays. Editing your space and sticking to a neutral, understated palette will ensure your pad looks wintry rather than looking like you left Christmas decor out until mid-February.

Embrace Texture

Lightweight throws and breezy textiles have no place in your winter decor arsenal. Lean into texture and layer your sofa, bed and benches with chunky knit pillows and blankets. Wool and acrylic accents pack dimension and texture into spaces, while buttery velvet, leather and faux fur touches invite glamour and warmth into your home for winter.
