January decorations and winter decor ideas go hand-in-hand. Learn how to style after Christmas with rustic textures and crisp white décor.
1. Cozy Glamour
Mix comfy layers with silver details for perfect January elegance and winter home decor. Tip: Winter decorations (not Christmas) are all about colors; include an overall palette of fresh whites, tinted metallics and frosty blues!
2. First Snow
Mimic the look of an actual winter landscape with soft white "snowy" floors and warm "woodsy" furniture.
Winter Porch Decor
Creating a winterscape starts outdoors. Welcome guests and delight neighbors with hanging white, gold or light-blue wreaths, white welcome mats and hanging sconces or lanterns. Paint the front door blue or white to usher in the new season and tie the aesthetic together!
Winter Decorating Ideas After Christmas
After Christmas, keep the tree, ditch the ornaments. Winter-thriving greens like firs (which is the Christmas tree type!) make a home feel cozy and seasonal long into winter. If you want, you can even replace the festive ornaments with neutral, evergreen ornaments, such as non-holiday snowflakes, hanging stars and acorns.
More Winter Home Decor Ideas
If you're like us, you want to dive head-first into the winter aesthetic, so to help make sure your creativity is sparked in every possible direction, here is a 'last call' batch of even more decorating ideas:
- Non-Christmas garland. String white or green garland around banisters, mantels and cabinetry. As long as it's plain and free from holly berries or other kitch, it will feel wintry, without feeling Christmasy.
- Ornaments on mantels. Bulb or bauble ornaments in gold and silver (not green and red!) make an elegant aesthetic without feeling festive. Perfect for arranging over fireplaces.
- Snowy wall art. Hang up wall art of snowy hills or frozen lakes for a burrrrrr-fect winter feel!
