Transitioning the Great Room to Winter

Transitioning the Great Room to Winter was rather easy.

The decorations that were Christmas specific were taken down and stored away.

Yet, there were many things that remained as they had a winter look and feel.

Everything in the room are things that I already had in my stash

with the exception of two fur trimmed pillows

that were on clearance after Christmas.

And of course, I could not leave the pillow alone,

I had to trek to the monogrammers’ and have it monogrammed

to add a pretty detail.

Of course there has to be one on the other chair too.

Where did those wonderful crewel deer pillows go?

They went across the room to the sofa!

The next thing that needed a little transformation to winter

was the mantel.

There really is not much change here.

I decided to keep the Magnolia wreath on the shutters

and added some magnolia branches to each side of the mantel.

The bottle brush trees were put away and the Winter birds flew in.

It’s nice to be able to transition from Christmas to Winter with such ease.

Just changing up a few things on the mantel, some pillows,

creating a winter’s vignette on the coffee table,

and making certain there are lots of candles for a warm winter’s glow.

How do you create your warm winter’s glow?

Have a beautiful day! I am looking forward to the temperatures rising

and the icy roads melting!

  6. Shirley,
    I’m having envy-flashbacks as I view the photos of your room. The sofa pattern brings back fond memories of the Country French sofa I sold (years ago) when I had my store. It was in a cream & beige check and would have fit right in with your room. Love your style!

  7. Your transition to Winter theme is just beautiful! You have such great classic taste!! Love those monogrammed pillows. My winter theme is woodland, snowy with my collection of Snowmen.

  8. so lovely and cozy. You have such a gift of pulling things together. I love your home.

    Will you share the paint color?

  9. Your winter living room looks so beautiful!!! I absolutely LOVE those monogrammed fur trimmed pillows…gorgeous!!!

  10. I love the blues and whites, so restful. Your winter living space looks very cozy and a place I could settle in till spring!

  11. Oh my, the great room looks…..GRRRRREAT!!!!! Sorry, couldn’t help myself!! I LOVE the fur trimmed, MONOGRAMMED pillows! Gorgeous! Of course I love the deer pillows against the leopard! Beautiful! I have brt out some winter décor for my great room too and IF my computer cooperates I will share it all soon!!! Like tomorrow:) Have a great rest of your day. Where do you go for the monogramming? I don’t know anyone around here that does that. Are they pillow covers that you can just take?

  12. why ‘of course’….they look beautiful monogrammed. love the way you think! hope you are having a great week.

  13. Your pillows are so elegant and luxurious. What a gorgeous room with such charm.

    Your winter design is cozy, inviting, and classy. I love all the pillows. You just have the best touch, Shirley. I know the room has to look gorgeous on an evening that you use your candlelight. Thank you for the inspiration.

  16. “Icy roads melting” sounds like just what I’ve been wishing! It’s very warm today, so maybe finally our roads will clear.

    Your room looked spectacular decorated for Christmas, but I just love this winter look! Everything looks warm and cozy but not heavy, just so very lovely.

    Question: where do you have things monogrammed?

  17. I think it is the perfect transition Shirley. Mine was simple too. When you decorate with pinecones and greenery, it’s a breeze to ease right into the winter season decor.

  18. The neutrals in your family room are absolutely beautiful! The new pillows are a perfect addition. What a great find!

  19. So pretty, Shirley. I added birds to my mantel too, in the form of a poster. Pillows are such a great way to quickly and easily change the look of the room. Love your new pillows!
