Winter Whites in the living room
Happy New Year everyone! I hope you’ve all had a great time with family and friends over the holidays. I took the opportunity to spend a few days in my pj’s and loved every minute of it! It’s been difficult to get out of the party, sofa and netflix mode and back into the work mode though. I thought I’d share how I’ve transitioned from holiday decor to winter whites in the living room.
As much as I love decorating for Christmas, I love taking it all down and simplifying come the new new year. I managed to get my tree and most of the decor down on New Year’s Day, with just a few things left to do in the dining room and guest room. Sometimes it can be a little difficult to leave it all behind so I like to transition myself out of the holidays and I’ll keep a few wintery pieces around.
I’ve kept the pom pom wreath up along with the preserved boxwood wreaths.
Bringing back my fiddle leaf fig adds a little green in the corner and the birch pieces look great as wintery white accents.
The addition of faux fur cushions and white wool throws make me feel like I’m in a wintery chalet. Especially when the candles are lit and the fire is going in the evenings!
I think pinecones are great as wintery accents and I placed some tiny ones in a little marble bowl and I left the large sugarcones on the end tables. Although there’s a lot of white in the room, the different textures help add warmth and coziness to the space. Which really helps when you’re looking at another couple of months of cold, snow and ice!
Thanks so much for following along with me these past few months while I got this new blog up and running, I appreciate each one of you! I’m looking forward to sharing some new DIY’s and makeover projects with you all in the new year!

Everythingis so beautiful! Love the pom pom wreath on your ladder! The fuzzy pillow is great too! I never thought of using candle sticks without candles, but it looks amazing!
Thanks so much Lisa! The candlesticks are so tall that It would be difficult to see above them with the candles. They’re so pretty on there own!

One of the coziest rooms I’ve seen, I just want to curl up with a book under a chunky throw!
Thanks so much Lesley, pop over any time! 😉
I love how fresh and clean this looks after a season of Christmas decor!
Thanks so much Anne! It is refreshing after all that festive decor!
Love this! Do you like your white sofa? Who is the maker? Do you recommend it? Thanks for the info– have teenagers and we use the sofas!
I love my white sofa! I’ve been living with white for 20 years now. I would never live with it though If all my white furniture pieces weren’t slipcovered..because it does show up the dirt. If your teenagers are careful and usually eat at the table and your willing to wash it every couple of months, than I say go for it.:)
