Everyone is always in a rush to take their Christmas decor down. I will probably take mine down this weekend, but it is something that I never look forward to. The house is always so warm and cozy at Christmas time and after the decorations are gone, it seems as though that warm and cozy feeling disappears too. It always looks so bare and can feel a little “cold.” So, I was thinking about what I could do to fix that. As someone who loves snow, I imagine bringing some of the magic inside to create a cozy winter wonderland.

A while back I did a post on my dream living room. I thought I would use the same major pieces of furniture (couch, chair, ottoman, end table) and add touches of gray and light blue to give the room an “icy” look. (With plenty of soft pillows and warm blankets around, it only looks “icy”). ; ) One of the reasons why I chose an ivory couch (everyone thinks I’m crazy) is because I plan on accenting my living room with different colors throughout the year (usually light pink:)). During the holidays, I added gold and silver. I have purchased some of the items above for my winter wonderland look. What do you think? Do you like this look? How do you “cope” with taking down Christmas decorations? : )
