Christmas is over and the tree and decorations are down. All of a sudden it feels like there is so much space! Then after a few days have passed it starts to feel stark and empty. What do you do? Do you decorate for winter? Valentine’s Day is so far away and spring is even further! Here are my tips for how to add some personality back into your home after Christmas.
Rework Your Holiday Décor
When taking down your holiday decorations remove ornaments, anything that screams Christmas, and anything both red and green together (unless it matches your typical home décor). Leave out your cozy items – candles, pinecones, wreaths, greenery and faux fur anything. These winter décor items will help you home to not feel naked.
This table setting was setup using items I had out for Christmas, but still loved. I was excited to be able to decorate with these items just a little bit longer.
Add Plants and Greenery
Plants are timeless and are a great way to transition your home into spring without breaking out the pastels. Wreaths and garlands add some outdoor touches, but you could also add in some succulents or terrariums.

Add a Pop Of Color
In addition to plants, add some color by bringing out colorful accent pillows, throws, etc. Now is the time to add some pattern or color. It doesn’t need to be neon bright, just some new fresh colors to make the space feel happy and homey.
When it comes to winter decor, the items I think are always safe to use are anything wood, mercury glass, glitter, plants, fur, and candles. I hope there are some ideas here that you like. What changes do you make in your home after the holidays?
