Have you noticed when you take down the holiday decorations you feel better without all the clutter BUT it can look a little sparse and sad?
It is a New Year after all so change some things up and refresh your space!
My favorite thing to do after the holidays is give all the surfaces a good wipe down. (get all that glitter off).
Once you have cleared the spaces and wiped them down then get creative when putting things back.
Is there any excess clutter or things that have just landed there accidentally? This is your chance to start with a clean slate.
Only put back what you love. I realize things have to be functional as well. But they can be beautifully styled and be functional. One of my absolute favorite ways to elevate a space is to add a decorative tray. We have 2 decorative trays on our entryway table. One has to be functional and holds a bowl with our keys, my husband’s sunglasses and a few other things.
But the second tray is my fun area where I like to decorate seasonally. I have battery powered candles in various styles of votives on there. And I also have my favorite scented candle and I burn it all year long.
I have a faux plant or a vase of faux flowers depending on the time of year and then I add some twinkle lights.
You would not believe what a difference these details can make. They add so much warmth and coziness.
There are so many ways to accessorize your home without spending anything or spending very little.
Some of my favorite accessories to change the look and vibe of your home:
-Throw pillows and blankets
-Candles and twinkle lights
-Faux or real plants and flowers
-Decorative trays, bowls, boxes (these are a great way to add beautiful storage and still have a practical space.)
-Display favorite mementos from travel or sentimental items in creative ways.
-Go to thrift stores and find unique pieces that tell a story. Mixing old and new gives a home some interest.
-Do not display and keep things out of guilt. (because someone gave it to you or you spent too much money on it).
Display what you love and what represents your personal style.
What do you already have in your home that you can restyle and refresh your space?
