Winter home tour 2018

After Christmas comes and goes, I often find myself in such a decorating bind. My house is so decorated for Christmas that when it’s all taken down and put away, the house just looks naked. It’s awful.

But your house doesn’t have to feel naked. Here are some ways I’ve managed to recycle some Christmas decor for winter.

Our front entry is simple but pretty with this apothecary jar full of pine tree picks and winterberry, a small vase of winterberry and a candle. If you’re missing the glow of Christmas lights, use a candle to simulate that glow.

Natural elements like pine branches, pine cones, boxwood and winterberry evoke winter but not necessarily Christmas. Here’s a basket of pine cones that sit in our office.

We also have a vignette in the middl of our dining room table that is full of pine cones and pine branches. Pine cones add lots of texture to a room and they can be used in the fall, too. Plus, they’re really pretty.

This has been a very versatile vignette. I’ve used it for almost three seasons and simply switched out a few elements each time.

In our dining room, the sideboard features a doughbowl with candles, pine picks, and more candles. So simple.

The stoneware pitcher and saucer belonged to my great grandparents.

Our faux mantle is decked out with winterberry, candles, and the soft glow of lanterns. How cute is this terrarium?

I hope you have enjoyed our winter home tour this year. Come back and visit us soon!!
