after the christmas decor was all packed up (i won’t lie – it was mid-january), it was time to quiet the house. i removed all the holiday-specific items, but still wanted a little glitz and sparkle. after all, its a new year, and thats something to celebrate!
i tucked away most of the knick-knacks and only brought out the items that felt fresh and homey – items with shine, sparkle, texture and warmth. i kept the colors to a minimum – just white, cream, silver, gold, grey, tan & brown.
and i kept the pompom wreath up because its perfect for winter!
to keep from looking too stark being somewhat devoid of color, i’ve made sure to add a lot of texture in the furs and sequins.
i had a couple sequined tops laying around and turned them into pillow covers!
i love this locker cabinet in here!
i’ve also realized that if i’m not adding in color through accessories, i need to have lots of freshness through live plants. my tip for keeping them alive: every couple days
i my kids drop 2-3 ice cubes on the soil.
our beautiful california winter has kept the roses blooming in our yard – it was 80* last weekend!
our entryway got a bit of a makeover, too. i really simplified it for christmas, but i needed to wake that area up a bit.
so how about you? do you go back to your usual decor after the holidays, or do you like to mix it up? i’m not one for keeping things the same for long in my home, so i’m pretty sure things will change again around here soon…
