Warm and Cozy Christmas Decorating Ideas
I don’t know how you feel about snow, but if you’re anything like me? Well, I’m not a fan. I mean, I love snow – when I can watch it gently fall from the comfort of my couch. With a blanket. And hot cocoa.
However, there’s nothing like a white Christmas, right?
Whether you’re a fan of snow or not, there’s something so cozy about being inside on a snowy day, especially if it’s Christmas time. It feels nostalgic. That I’ll-be-home-for-Christmas feeling.
Snowy and Cold Outside but Warm and Cozy Inside
It’s really not too hard to get that warm and cozy feeling when you’re decorating for Christmas. It’s almost inherent with any Christmas decor, but there are a few ways to make sure your favorite spaces in your house give off that snuggly vibe.
How to Create the Cozy
If you’re trying to go for the warm and cozy feel in your Christmas decor, there are some simple tips you can incorporate to take things up a few notches
1| Keep your decor simple
Busy decor might have a lot to look at, but sometimes it’s too much. To have a relaxing feel in your home, keep things simple. A clean, uncluttered look adds to the cozy, relaxing feeling of Christmas you’re going for.
2| Use a blended color scheme
There’s nothing more unrelaxing than too many colors going on at once. When you are decorating a space, if you want to get a cozy feel, make sure your colors are all working together. Find a palette that you want to be the dominating colors in your display, and stay consistent with those. I know we love a lot of different decorating pieces, but if it’s not fitting in with the decor in a particular room, better to leave it out or find a different place to put it.
And along the lines of color…
Neutral Christmas Decorating Inspiration
3| Use neutral colors
Sometimes we want the ‘wow’ and ‘pop’ of some bright Christmas displays. And those are totally fine – and fun! But if you want a cozy, warm vibe, tone down some of the colors. That doesn’t mean you can only have tan and white – it just means go for a more muted version of some of your favorites.
This DIY Tassel Christmas Tree Skirt and the whole room (from House on Longwood Lane) as a whole is a perfect example of warm and cozy while using neutral colors.
Ironically enough, those chilly, wintery scenes brought inside somehow make that space even cozier and warmer! I know – strange, right? But maybe it’s just the peace of a snowy woods, even if it’s just decor, that makes your home feel more peaceful and relaxing. Things like flocked trees, garland, pine cones, birch logs – all of those outdoor elements surrounding you somehow create a warm, cozy nest.
This Rustic Christmas Decorating Ideas post can certainly give you some added inspiration when it comes to bringing the outdoors in.
