Now that we’re almost two weeks into the new year, it’s time for all the holiday decorations to come down. I have to admit that it’s always a little sad to finally close out the holiday season, but it’s also nice to declutter and freshen up the house. With more than two months of winter to get through, you might be wondering how you should decorate your home next. Fortunately, you can easily transition your holiday home decor to cozy winter decor with just a few small tweaks. Since I’ve been reorganizing my home, I’m super excited to be partnering with AtHome today to share some quick tips on how you can change up your space before spring hits.

Properly store your holiday decorations
To transition seamlessly into cozy winter decor, I always start by properly putting away any ornate Christmas decor pieces like ornaments and overly festive wreaths or garlands. Since ornaments are delicate, especially if they’re glass, I like to organize them by size into a compartmentalized box. AtHome carries handy storage bins that can be sectioned off and are prefect for ornaments of all shapes and sizes. The top can be secured with a zipper which keeps bugs and dust out till the next season.
Get cozy with baskets for your blankets and pillows
Once you’ve finally cleared the space, add wool knits, pom pom pillows, and fluffy textures to bring in that cozy element. Make sure you have a few storage baskets around to stow away the extra blankets and pillows when they’re not in use as this will help keep the space tidy. I’m a huge fan of white woven baskets since they’re versatile enough for the warmer and colder months.
Add in new greenery
The most effortless way to accessorize your space after the holidays is with a natural arrangement. A new potted tree or fresh flowers in a bold vase always looks good. Look for greenery that provides a nice break from the holiday evergreens and poinsettias. If you want something that will last longer than flowers, I love heavier leaves like eucalyptus stems. I’ve also been obsessed with fiddle leaf fig trees, which are great house plants for warming up and freshening up the living area. I found this one from AtHome for under $100 and it looks perfect in its new spot!
Swap out wall decor for a fresh start
Finally, don’t forget about updating your wall decor. This white flower wall piece is perfect for mixing in a touch of spring and brightening up the house. It’s such a beautiful and neutral statement piece that could stay up through summer. I love how it has the gold trim, which adds a little glam. You can switch it up with frames, updated photos, and mirrors too. AtHome has SO many beautiful wall art options that are easy swaps – I could have walked through that section of the store over and over again!
