This year, I’ve decided to take a more “Simple” approach to my winter and Christmas decor. Now, if you’re new to Casa Watkins Living, you probably don’t know that I don’t typically use the word “simple.” I’m a maximalist at heart and enjoy a full styled space. Toning the decor down for the winter this year is a new venture for me and I rather love the way it turned out. I took inspiration from Scandinavian style and put my own spin on it. I used nature inspired pieces, toned down the colors, and spaces full of hygge to create a globally inspired boho Christmas room. Be sure again to check out all the other wonderful Christmas tours at the end of the post!
Simple Boho Christmas Tour
My winter decor color scheme came from this beautiful parrot art from Cozamia. I’ve had this art piece for a couple of years now and it’s not what you think of when you think winter decor. However, I was up for the challenge this year. You’ll see ways I incorporated colors from this art piece in my family room mantel, which I’ll be sharing tomorrow! I started by removing the copper pillows I used for my fall tour. I was left with the teal pillows and mixed them with the ivory textured pillows. A nice cozy, fuzzy blanket and no other sofa fluff needed. The zig zag velvet pillow transitioned from fall to winter very easily if I do say so myself. I was a little skeptical, but I received so many thumbs ups when I asked about using this pillow for the winter on Instagram.
The teal and blue colors continued to the coffee where I placed a small collection of glass jars from Joann Fabrics. The wooden bowl was a thrift store find for only $3! A few pinecones and gold glittery ornaments complete this simple coffee table decor. I opted for an ornament free tree this year, and used faux berry twigs, hydrangeas, and mini bells instead. This tree is quite simple compared to the one I’ll be sharing next week that’ll be in my family room.
Speaking of trees, I decorated the side table very simply with a few super cute mud cloth inspired wooden trees in my winter color scheme year. Stay tuned for the tutorial and an additional way to decorate these wooden trees on the blog Wednesday!
