Good Monday morning friends! Today I’m excited once again to join in with some amazing bloggers to share a Winter Home tour with you all. (If you missed the Christmas tour loop you can find it here.) First let me say, if you are joining me from Allison at A House and a Dog here, HELLO!! And thank you so much for stopping by!! This year is the very first year I’ve ever decorated our home for Winter and I have to say, I love it. Its a great way to slowly transition from Christmas. Every year I’m ready for the chaos of Christmas to be packed away as soon as the gifts are unwrapped. I love everything about Christmas, the true meaning, the family gatherings, the music, décor, I do love it all but by the time the room is full of ripped wrapping paper I’m ready for all of the décor and things to be packed away. This year was different, I couldn’t bring myself to put it ‘all’ away…
One of the biggest reason would be the flocked Christmas trees we bought this year from Walmart, I just wasn’t ready to pack them away! I left the two flocked trees ‘naked’ because I wanted to have a clean simple look to the trees. Doing this for Christmas made it easy to transition them for our winter décor. I also removed all of the red from this space adding neutral pillow covers to keep it light and fresh. You can read about a few of the things I did to achieve this look here.
Another area of our home that received a few winter touches is our dining and sitting room. Again this was a simple transition with the neutral pieces I had already added. When I think of winter I think clean, fresh and cozy. So I added more whites including dishes, candles and textiles. This helped keep the space feeling cozy and gave it the perfect touch of fresh winter.
Another thing I’ve started to do is purge. Isn’t it funny how with the new year we always want to organize and simplify the things in our life? I always start out strong, lose sight, gain sight again and go on a mad purge, lose sight again and then its a new year again. That’s another blog post for another day but I know I cant be alone here, it happens too easily. So by beginning to clear some spaces and keep things simple, its helping me to achieve the refreshed look. As we get closer to spring I will be focusing more on simplifying our home.
Just on the off chance y’all didn’t know…I LOVE the black and white combo. There’s just something so good about it. Our family room is all ready for winter with lots of cozy seating. This is our hangout, we nap here, play games here, have carpet picnics, watch movies with popcorn…this room is our little haven. Fun fact, it’s soon to get a major refresh but I’m loving it all done up for the winter months!!
I hope you’ve all enjoyed this little winter tour of our home. Please be sure to take some time to visit the other beautiful homes in this loop of tours. There are so many amazing women to follow along with. here, and be sure to check out the other lovely ladies on the list!!
