It’s January, and you may just now be finally getting the rest of your Christmas decorations put back into storage for next year. Holiday decorations are so magical and wonderful, and you might be feeling a little sad about your regular decor after putting everything away. But there are many ways you can decorate your home after the holidays that are still fun.
Still a winter theme
It is still winter for at least another few months, so you could actually keep some of those winter decorations out if you want. Personally, I’m all for the decorations I can leave out for half the year instead of having to go through the work of redecorating every month. My baseboard heater covers stay on all year long and match my baseboard colors, so I never have to change them. Snowmen and Pinecones are still great decorations and can make your place feel just a little festive.
Get the right pillows
One way to instantly change the feel in a room is through throw pillows. They can be in all different kinds of colors and styles, and they make your place feel more cozy. If you want to keep the feeling of joy in your home, just pick out some new pillows for your couch that seem fun and are something you can enjoy throughout the rest of the winter.
Remember, Valentine’s Day
It might feel a little too soon if you like to wait until February, but Valentine’s Day is about a month away now, and you can get out some decorations for that. Christmas is a decorations-all-over-the-house kind of holiday, and other holidays tend to just be a thing or two, but you don’t have to be that way. Go crazy with Valentine’s Day if it lifts your spirits.
Most people don’t realize how much scents affect the feel of their home. While decorating is important, the smell can make or break your whole design. Not only are candles decorative and can complete your look, they also smell wonderful and can give your room a whole new feel. You could even sneak in a pine tree smelling candle if you are feeling really nostalgic for Christmas.
One thing that can really change the look in your room is decorating your table. Get a new table runner and some kind of centerpiece that can be displayed year round. It will not only add to your current decor but will be something new and exciting you can enjoy every day.
One way to really beef up the design in your house is through artwork. You could get a large canvas, and make a piece of art yourself. It will give your room a sentimental feel and will have the exact colors you want to use, so you don’t have to worry about everything matching. Or, you could go buy some beautiful art to hang in your home. New art on the walls might be just what you need to get over the post-holiday decorating blues and start to feel happy with your decor again.
