Christmas Angel Print | Winter Decor Transition

Sunday, January 3, 2021

Christmas decor can transition to Winter decor by keeping seasonal greenery and neutral colored decor used for Christmas. Fresh evergreens, magnolia leaves, and a moss ball surrounding a Christmas angel print in neutral tones will carry the decorations into January. A few design tips will help you to create a decor grouping to transition your home from Christmas to Winter decor. 



Evergreens and neutral colored Christmas decor transitions to Winter decor
An elevated shelf behind the kitchen sink is a wonderful place to decorate for any season, and fresh greenery in rustic containers keeps the kitchen from looking so bare during the Winter months.

Winter  Decor  Transition

with a few design tips 



Soft shades of cream, white, and brown with touches of blue in a framed angel print transitions from Christmas to Winter
Soft shades of cream, white, and brown with touches of blue brighten the arrangement of fresh greenery. While Joyeux Noël reflects the Christmas season, the caption is small and not noticeable from a distance.

Angels throughout the kitchen proclaimed Christmas this year. Angels appeared here on the sink shelf, on the red and blue Christmas table setting, on the kitchen island, above the refrigerator, and on the shelf built into the stone wall. 

A golden angel flower vase filled with fir and cedar on the kitchen sink shelf will be replaced with a simpler mercury glass vase holding fresh-cut greens in the first week of January. Other angels will be slowly replaced with non-seasonal items.

A  few  design  tips 


The items in the arrangement follow design principles of leading the eyes around the grouping. The lower gold angel flower vase on the left leads eyes upward toward the magnolia and fresh boxwood. Then the gold framed angel print leads eyes back down to the right. The three main items form a triangular shape that keep the eyes WITHIN the grouping, never leading the eyes outward with no return. 

Texture, another design element, is abundant in the arrangement with the print's gold frame, the cement footed urn, the wooden footed riser, the gold angel vase, the cement rabbit, and all the various textures of the different kinds of fresh greenery.

Easily accessible, the arrangement will slowly transition from Christmas to Winter during January.

  1. I love this space, not to mention the angels, but it must be such a pleasure to have this space to decorate. I have a windowsill in my kitchen that I just love even though it’s only about four inches deep. I have a few angels I leave up year round that are not overly seasonal and I love having them. Really enjoy your posts.
