I love winter when it snows. This means Colorado celebrates winter in what we call fake spring. After the holidays I like my winter decor to center around a few pine needle garlands on the mantel, in the entry, and my home office.
I keep a few pinecones. It is a compromise I make with myself so I am not staring at empty tabletops and dust.
Winter home decor is cozy and the perfect excuse to grab a throw and read (or listen) to a book on a chilly Sunday afternoon.

I also love candles this time of year with the chilly interiors and the constant hum of the furnace. I love to light a candle on the days I am working from home or at the end of the day when the sun sets under the backdrop of the Rockies.
These daylight savings ideas work great during the winter months.
Winter decor is also a chance to take inventory of winter throws, pillow covers and my candle cabinet in the laundry room.
We have a real tree and every year we find ways to reuse the branches and branches. I toss the branches into a planter for a kitchen centerpiece.
My middle “child” (adult) got me this electric tea kettle and I just love it. It heats water in minutes and has the SMEG look without the price tag or the malfunctions. Does anyone own a SMEG toaster?
