Neutral Winter Decor that Transcends the Holidays

Neutral Winter Decor that Transcends the Holidays

Have you ever felt that you’ve just put up your holiday decor and it’s already time to take it down? Ditch the rush to remove in January by decorating with winter holiday neutrals.  

Begin with neutral themes like pine trees, snowflakes, and deer.  Then use four simple elements to give your home plenty of holiday pizzazz—and allow you to enjoy your decorations for another month, at least! Choose from these winter neutrals:

  • White
  • Wood
  • Greenery
  • Glitz

White is for winter

White is the most neutral of neutral tones! And it’s a natural for winter–think snow, of course.

From whitewashed wood to faux snow, the great thing about white holiday decor is that it’s trans-seasonal! For example, in a neutral holiday table setting, just pop out your Santa after Christmas and the white country church and trees will look lovely in January, too.

Wood for the win

Light wood tones are the new neutral on the block. You can easily build a holiday vignette with accent pieces like wood trees or snowflakes, candlesticks or lanterns, and trays. Simply remove any Christmas-specific pieces after late December and continue to enjoy your decorations for weeks.

Go for greenery 

Evergreens are the quintessential Christmas decoration, but they’re just as striking in the winter weeks following.  So bring in the pines with your whites and woods to extend your holiday decor till it’s time to put up valentines!

Glamour comes from the glitz

Finally, don’t forget the shine in your neutral holiday decor.  If you don’t think wood and sparkle go together, think again! Add shimmering cone trees, metallic florals in glimmering vases, and glitter-spangledstags to your vignettes. You’ll be ready for your New Year’s party without redecorating!


Follow these guidelines for neutral winter decorating and prepare to enjoy the calm of those weeks after Christmas!
