In this post: If you’re looking for winter decor ideas for after Christmas, these 10 ideas will help add warmth and coziness to your home.
Who doesn’t like rolling up in a fluffy throw by the fire, when the temperature dips outside?
Winter decor after Christmas has a very special character in that it needs to feel comfy and cozy and yet at the same time reflect the icy look of outdoors. It aims is to exude a curious mix of warm and cold.
I love to use lots of white, both for the clean calm feel it imparts, as well as for the way it mirrors a fresh blanket of snow. I also enjoy the natural imagery of the outdoors, while the fabrics now become warm and rich with textures and bulk.
The following list presents 10 must-have winter decor ideas that will help you add that cozy feel to your home.
You may already own quite a few of these items, but some fresh options are always fun to add to your decor.

1. Faux fur throws
Nothing says winter quite like a faux fur blanket. Draped over a lush sectional sofa it pretty much calls out your name to curl up on the sofa with a cup of hot cocoa. Ditto for stools and pillows!
2. Fisherman knit pillows
All sweater knits ring true for this season, but especially fisherman knits and anything with cables. If it’s something you’d wear for a hike in the woods, it’s even better tossed on the couch to relax in front of the fire.
3. Bark covered decor
Winter is a very textural season and bark is reminiscent of a snowy day outdoors. Wrapped around planters or other decor, it looks lovely with a white bouquet or an evergreen plant.
Whether used in drapery panels or covering a piece of furniture, rich velvet exudes a feeling of warmth.
5. Twigs and branches
Another reminder of the bare trees outside, twigs and branches looks great indoors. Throw in a few pine cones and you’ve got the perfect winter vignette.
6. Snowflake imagery
If you have snowflake ornaments left over from the holidays, they can still look pretty around the house. The imagery is pretty on pillows or bedding, as well.
7. Woodland animals
Deer, polar bears or other woodland creatures are the perfect motifs for winter decorating.
8. Menswear fabrics
Wooly fabrics always remind me of winter and the tweedier they are the better. Also tartans, buffalo checks and pinstripes would work well, too.
9. Chunky knit throws
I already mentioned the fisherman and cable knits, but the newer super chunky knit throws are awesome for your winter home.
10. Mercury glass
The icy look of mercury glass is prefect to reflect the winter light. In candlesticks and vases or other decor pieces, they fit right in for a winter look.
Pick a few of these winter decor ideas and mix them up in a crisp white room or one decorated in icy pastels. Pour yourself a cup of hot chocolate, light a fire and say goodbye to the winter blues!
