Christmas is already over and we have arrived again in a new year! Have you already put away the Christmas decorations? If not, then you already have a task on the to-do list for the coming days. The question now is, do you really have to take everything down and pack it or can you leave a few things for decoration after the holidays? You can find the answer here! We give some great ideas for winter decoration 2024 that will make your living room beautiful in winter.
Seasonal decoration is becoming increasingly popular. Decorating the apartment appropriately for every season can have a positive effect on the atmosphere in the interior all year round. Just like any other season, winter has its own charm. Color palettes inspired by nature, cozy fabrics and twinkling lights are just a small part of the decorative elements that mark the cold season.
Although Christmas trees and Santa Clauses just don’t fit after the holidays, there are many other decorating ideas to implement in January and February. Be inspired by our ideas!
Actually, most of the Christmas decorations can also be used as winter decorations. The trick is to omit the Christmas motifs and the red, among other things. The neutral colours, country style and natural materials are just as suitable for Christmas and the winter months afterwards. So, if you have Christmas decorations without Christmas figures and red accents, maybe it can stay in January as well.
This is the case, for example, with this opulent table wreath for the coffee table, which combines green fir branches in a snowy look with white berries, candles and other “frosty” elements.
You don’t need much for the living room decoration after Christmas. Even a wooden bowl with cones and a vase with dried sprigs of cotton make it cozy and beautiful in the living room.
The coffee table offers the perfect place for an unobtrusive winter decoration in the living room. Set out a rattan tray and adorn it with block candles and pine cones to give it a wintry flair.
It may not surprise you, but with cozy blankets, faux fur rugs and fluffy cushions you can quickly transform the living room into a place of well-being. The special look of these fabrics and textiles invites us to sit down and snuggle up in the warm blankets.
So we would recommend that you don’t pack away those cozy blankets and sweater pillows until March.
If your living room has a working or non-working fireplace, use it as a focal point. It can make small living rooms even cozier and bring warmth to a larger room.
Set the fireplace in such a way that it gives the feeling of being warmed by a roaring fire – even when it’s not in use, it’s more about the emotional element. Reconsider the arrangement of your furniture to make the fireplace the focal point. Use different decorative objects to decorate the area around and above the fireplace for winter. A few ideas follow.
Tip: You can also arrange candles and lanterns in a non-working fireplace to mimic a crackling fire.
Decorate your mantel with a garland of stars that will brighten up your home all winter long. For this homemade garland, cut out star shapes from sweater fabric or felt and glue thick stabilizer to the backs, trimming as needed. Glue the shapes to a piece of yarn with hot glue and hang them up. Use a fabric in a color that suits your color scheme while avoiding the classic Christmas colors.

Although decoration and accessories can go a long way towards creating a cozy atmosphere, it is important to fill the house with the scents of the season as well. A bowl of winter-scented potpourri, e.g. B. fir branches or periwinkle, or a basket with cinnamon-scented pine cones will immediately fill your home with seasonal mood. Place the arrangement prominently in front of the fireplace or as a casual winter table arrangement.
If you decorated your mantelpiece with garlands made of natural material for Christmas this year, you can leave them on during the other winter months. Evergreen branches freshen up a room immediately and combine wonderfully with white winter decoration elements and candles.
One of the popular places to decorate the living room is the console table. It does not have such an important function as the dining table and can therefore be decorated as desired. In addition to various winter figures, natural materials are also a popular choice for console table decoration.
For example, place a few birch trunk candles in front of a green wreath to create a beautiful ensemble for your winter decor.
Or cut off some pine green branches and put them in glass vases with water. The fir tree will fill your home with a lovely scent and the branches will take root at the same time, so you can plant them right in the garden in spring. Don’t forget to change the water weekly.
You can also add a rustic chalkboard to your console table decorations to leave various small messages for your family and friends. The decoration of the home is, among other things, a very personal thing.
