It’s the time of year to start transitioning from fall to winter décor. If you are anything like me, you want to hang onto your fall décor for just a little longer, but the good thing is…you can begin with baby steps. All it takes is a few minor adjustments to usher in winter. I always like to start with the front door.
Typically, in early November, I will begin the seasonal transition by replacing my fall door wreath with a winter wreath. Not quite a Christmas-themed wreath, but one with a winter feel. I found this eucalyptus wreath and adorned it with the Wooden Arch from the Summer 2021 Box. It’s the perfect wreath to carry me into the Christmas season, and when Christmas is over, I will hang it back on my door until Spring.
My next favorite way to transition fall décor into winter décor is with candles. Candles are always a wonderful way to begin introducing winter scents into your home and phasing out the fall pumpkin spice scents. Candles are not only a décor staple, but they also help to create ambiance in your space. I updated my console table with two pairs of candleholders, the Soho Gold Candlesticks from the Member’s Shop,, and the Wood Candle Holders from the Fall 2021 Box. I placed winter-themed, cinnamon-scented candles on top of the candle holders.
Changing out flower arrangements is another effortless way to transition your décor from fall to winter. Simply trade the autumn-colored flower arrangements with winter-colored arrangements. Swap out the pumpkins for pinecones. Check out my flower vase hack…I turned the Soho Gold Candlestick upside down and made it into a perfect little vase!
When it is cold outside, and in the full winter season, there is no better way to add a feeling of warmth and coziness than by adding a soft throw blanket to your seating and of course, switching those fall pillows with winter-themed pillows. I added the super versatile Lumbar Pillow to my Winter Wonderland pillow and created a perfect match.
Transitioning from fall to winter is all about amplifying the seasonal change with a few winterized statement pieces. Have fun with the transition, and stay warm!
