I don’t know about you, but I struggle right after the new year with decorating my winter home decor. Even though I love the fresh clean look of having all the Christmas decorating down, it seems to feel a little sparse and empty. It’s still too early to bring out any Spring decor.This year, for my after holiday mantel and living room decor, I decided to leave the brass candlesticks out, add some dried bunny tail grass from the craft store, and add my newly made orange slice garland.

I left out my birch candles from Christmas and the mixed gold and cream colored taper candles. I am so glad we DIY’ed the faux brick overmantel this last winter. It just really completes the area above the rustic DIY wood mantel.
I am a little in love with the Bunny Tail Grass. I found it at the craft store, and thought it was so cute! The bunch was so big I was able to split it and put half in the white ceramic vase. In the corner, I added a Sanseveria plant and a vintage oil painting I purchased when we went to the City Farmhouse pop up a few years ago where our tree was.
Painted wood was popular for so long, and now natural and stained wood is making a come back. It’s actually a really nice relief, and I love the warm tones.
The dried orange garland adds a nice touch of natural color and texture as after holiday decor on the mantel.
The second bunch of Bunny Tail Grass on the mantel is a nice neutral texture element.
I always get a ton of compliments on the mirror. It was my Grandmother’s, and I love that every time I look at it, I think of her. I bring it in for a while, and when I get tired of it swap it out. Somehow, it always makes its way back into my decor.
I feel like this is a nice transition look from after holiday to late winter. How do you decorate in that weird between holiday to spring time?
