With Christmas behind us and the decorations put away, my house is looking forlorn.  It needs some attention.  Since I will be putting out the Valentines Day colors soon, I like to keep it simple.  Just a few cozy details here and there can make my home look nice for the transition.

Keeping with the winter theme, here are 5 easy ideas!

1. Evergreen isn’t just for Christmas.

I love a silver accent on a cold winter day.  Embrace the crispness.

4. Fur makes everything better.

I’m not an animal print kind of girl, but even I like a fur throw or pillow to snuggle under on a wintry night.

5. Bring the winter inside.

Just because there seems to be no life left doesn’t mean a plant has lost its usefulness.  Look around you and see what you can find to reclaim.  Spray painting dead branches white makes a beautiful winter ornament.

No matter what your style, adding a few winter touches to your home will make the cold season seem cozier.
