Did you know you can keep up some of your Christmas decor by just “transitioning” it to winter? Transitioning from Christmas to Winter Decor is such a fun idea and today I am going to show you how to do it.
I am sitting here staring at the beautiful Christmas décor in our dining room and dreading the task of taking it all down. And then it suddenly occurred to me that I don’t need to take it all down. I just need to transition my décor from Christmas to Winter.
So what does that mean?
Christmas décor is fun and happy and cheerful. Any typically my winter décor is bland and not thought out well. In the past, I have taken down my Christmas décor and have been very unhappy with how barren my house looked. So I kind of ignored the boring look and did nothing.
This year that is going to change!
I have decided to use some of my Christmas décor and “transition” it to winter. That should help my house look less bland. The transition can also be gradual. I may leave up a tree or two and then take them down after New Years Day. (I think it seems less overwhelming too!)
This is what my dining looked like during the Christmas holiday.
Let me show you how easy it was to make the transition.
When I look at this room, it is pretty obvious that my Ho Ho Ho sign needs to be put away and the red needs to disappear. But what about the Christmas tree?
I think the tree could actually look great in here so I think I am going to leave it up for another week.
Look at the Christmas decor in the nook in our dining room.
Look at the minor changes I made to this area below. It doesn’t look like Christmas anymore. Even though there are vintage Christmas balls on the buffet.
Next, I removed the Ho Ho Ho sign and the red ribbons on the wreaths. I also changed out the flowers.
I went from this …
This is a much simpler and cleaner “January” look!
Remember this photo?
This is how it looks now.
I am not sure how long I will be leaving the tree in this room. I see this transition as “gradual” so I have a while to decide.
I am so excited that I can slowly take down my holiday decor and enjoy my wreaths and some of our holiday decor for a few more weeks.
What do you think of this look?
I think it is a great wintertime look. I still need to decide on my “accent” colors for the new year. I am considering green and blue. What do you think?
