Each year, once all of the holiday decorations are packed away, I find myself feeling like my home is anything but cozy and inviting. It tends to feel bare. Tony even mentioned that our home felt empty.
So, now I am more intentional about the look of my winter home. I make every effort to create warm and welcoming spaces.
With this winter home tour, I hope you will be inspired to do the same!

I always start at the front door when changing my seasonal decor. In this space and most others, I added shades of winter white and soft blues. Faux flowers and stems, candles, and lots of textured fabrics made it easy to create a finished look for my entrance.
Winter Living Room
Lots of cozy pillows and throw blankets were the key to making this space more full after our Christmas tree was packed away.
A couple of my wreaths were appropriate for both Christmas and the following months.
Gold accents continue to be my favorite. In my winter kitchen, I added a bit of gold and a lot of candles for warmth.
I placed new candles in my hurricane vases and paired them with some serving pieces. A platter on a plate stand is a great way to hide an unsightly outlet or an awkward kitchen corner.
Winter Breakfast Room
Breakfast rooms are often overlooked. I simply added soft blue pillows and a large vase. Both were used in other parts of my home throughout the fall.
Winter Dining Room
In the dining room, new soft pink candlesticks steal the show. I bought two of each size, added pillar candles and placed them on each side of a footed planter filled with faux hydrangeas.
Even though this blush floral throw pillow has a bit more of a spring look than a winter one, I made it work by adding an oversized throw blanket. Don’t be afraid to add throws and pillows to more than just bedrooms and family rooms.
The low winter sun is my favorite. I love how it streams through my dining room windows. I hope you have a sunny spot in your home to enjoy!
I hope you’ll stay connected!

I absolutely love your design style. We are nowhere near the same season of life . . . I’m a grandma who travels to see grandchildren and works from home as a writer. My style is more handmade with a bit of color and lots of gathered memories from kids growing up. But when I see your beautiful touches and read your directive words about sunny spots in the dining room and bits of color to change the season, I am inspired. Your suggestions and choices add a spark to my style. Thank you. I look forward to your newsletter . . . and could just hug you for including your wonderful dogs in so many pics. You go to a lot of work to add beauty to our lives, and this grandma says thank you. Blessings on your sweet little head.
Thank you Leslie. Your words are so kind and thoughtful. I can tell you are a talented writer. Everything you said was beautifully worded. What a lovely life you must lead. Although I don’t yet have grandchildren, you and I are not as far apart in our seasons of life as you may think. I want you to know that you made my day with your sweet comment. Much love to you! xoxo

What’s happening with your Colorado retreat?
Hi Jen, love your home and your style! I have a question regarding the pink candle holders on the dining room table. What size and color are the candles you have in them and if you have info on where they are from? Thanks for your help! Dema
Hi Dema! They are ivory. I recently added them to my post under the dining room source section. Hope this helps and thank you so much for your kind words!
Hi Jen, love your house and your style! Can you please tell me the size and where you got the pillar candles that are in the pink candle sticks on your dining room table Thanks, mimi
Hi Mimi! Thank you so much! I used 4″ wide candles. The shorter ones are about 4″ and I just added them to my post under the dining room source section for your convenience. The taller ones are about 6″ tall, but I think any height would look pretty as long as they are the same width. I hope this helps! xoxo
Love your home! How many bunches of the orchids did you use for the centerpiece on the kitchen table?
Hi Cassandra and thank you! I used 3 pots of orchids. Hope this helps!
