I don’t know about you but I get the winter blues every year.

Does anyone else feel like that?

Tell me I’m not the only one!

After being so busy through the fall and then getting ready & celebrating the holidays it all comes to a screeching halt come January.

Am I right?

After all the pretty Christmas decorations get put away my house feels a bit bare.

And once the holidays are over winter feels so loooong!

Especially for someone who doesn’t like winter and really doesn’t like being cold. Haha!

Creating a cozy home to get me through the winter really helps.

Comfy textured pillows and throws

Winter does have some perks…like snuggling up on the couch with comfy pillows and throw blankets.

And since I’m always cold (like always…I must have bad circulation…or maybe I’m just getting old) I have lots of soft throws around our home.

Mixing different textures in neutral colors in our pillows creates the cozy modern farmhouse style look we love.

Keeping a throw blanket on the end of our couch not only looks pretty but it’s functional because it always gets used.

We also have more throw blankets in a large basket that sits next to our fireplace just in case someone else needs one besides me.

Another warm sherpa blanket and throw pillow accent the leather chair.

And a faux fiddle leaf plant in a basket sits in the corner by the window.

The warm textures of the baskets helps create a cozy vibe in our room.

Warm Neutral Fireplace Decor

And what’s better than a warm fire to create a perfect cozy winter home?

Above the mantel, I kept our Christmas wreath on the antique window for winter since it was neutral.

Styling the mantel with some additional greenery, wood decor items and candle lanterns feel perfectly cozy too!

One can never have too many baskets

I love how a great basket can bring so much natural texture into a space.

Our console table sits in the hallway that is wide open to our family room so it feels like it’s part of the same room.

This table is such fun to decorate for each season.

For winter I just grabbed a basket I had upstairs and put another comfy throw blanket in it for instant cozy winter decor.

The lidded basket stays in that spot all year and holds our jar candles.

And another faux fiddle leaf in a basket sits beside the table.

See I may have a thing for baskets. LOL

I don’t know about you but I just love lighting a candle every night.

Nothing better than the scent of a candle while we are hanging out in the evenings.

I added some pinecones and greenery that I picked up on clearance at Hobby Lobby after Christmas to a wood pedestal bowl.

I don’t think pinecones are just for the holidays, they can be displayed throughout the winter season.

What do you think?

Twinkling Fairy Lights

A simple way to keep the magical twinkle from the holidays through the entire winter season is to add a couple of strands of lights around your home.

I’ve seen them added to faux trees or fireplace mantels.

But I decided to add fairy lights to a cloche I already had here.

It’s just so pretty at night!
