{ Best Winter Decor Guide }

Welcome back to TQS! I took a little break after Christmas, which was good for the soul! I blog usually 4 days a week & a comfy break was nice! However,  today I'm back to show a simple winter decor guide around our little cottage home!! I took down our Christmas decor December 26th & I really don't remember doing it or how fast it went haha.. I literally had it all organized,  binned & put into our Christmas closet in 4 hours, which usually takes me longer due to health issues. I'm not complaining though, because it was quick, painless & New Year's is fresh & clean. Truth be told I hate when Christmas is over I just remove everything asap!  To keep things comfy I still like to add some winter goods... Come see more below!


  • Dark rustic greens
  • Grays
  • Whites / creams
  • Rich woods
  • Galvanized 
  • Light safe greens


Another example of texture from the vintage hamper, that rustic green color, some cypress greenery & voila winter charm!

  • Eucalyptus 
  • Wispy Pine 
  • Holly
  • Cypress
  • Cedar 
  • Evergreen 



  • Woods
  • Wool
  • Baskets
  • Fabrics
  • Rugs
  • Vintage items


You can see in this photo I used everything explained in the above topics.. I placed some long springs of eucalyptus in a rustic cream container perched on a warm wood bench.. See, you get the greenery, cream color, texture/ warmth of the wood & for added depth a gray +white patterned pillow! So simple but very wintery with charm! 



  • Orange
  • Cinnamon 
  • Clove
  • Mint
  • Vanilla 
  • Apple

I love using natural scents after the holiday! Holiday & winter scents are my favorite as I'm not much into spring or floral/ masculine scents.  Adding some natural mint, cinnamon stick bundles or drops of vanilla can add that comfy refreshing feel without being overpowering or too holiday-ish. I left some extra cinnamon sticks out on the table { above}  for that warm spice scent!!


What do you think of this winter decor guide? I hope it was fun to see but more informational + helpful to you too!! Do you do / use any of these tips above in your home after Christmas?

Happy Wednesday!
