Transition Your Home Decor from Christmas to Winter

As you begin to pack away your Christmas items and store your holiday decor, consider these items for a touch of winter in your home.

I live in South Dakota and with that comes a solid four months of winter (sometimes more).  We learn to embrace the chilly temps and snowy landscapes and tend to spend a lot more of our time indoors.  Home should feel cozy and welcoming to those who dwell in it and especially during the longer winter months.  As with all seasons, I like to use the outdoors to inspire the inside vibes of our home.  I compiled the list of items that I use through the winter months to decorate with.  The colors I gravitate to during this frigid season is definitely influenced from the cold weather tones we see in nature; woods, whites, blue-spruce, and icy teal are some of my favorites to use each season.  You can mix in accent colors with tones you are seeing outside your front door. 

This is a winter go-to list that I have compiled over the years.  You may already have some of these items in your personal collection or you can add them to your wish list for the next thrift store or yard sale excursion.
