EASY WAYS TO REFRESH YOUR HOME AFTER THE HOLIDAYS
We absolutely love the holidays and all of the decorating that comes along with it. It is so exciting to put up the tree and decorate with garland and pretty ornaments although it can start to feel a little bit much after the holidays pass and we enter the New Year. I have to say that once we step into January, I am always a little eager to take down the holiday decor. It allows me to reset and embrace a fresh start for the year.
The most relaxing place to relax has to be a fresh, clean one! Keep reading to learn Easy Ways to Refresh Your Home After the Holidays!
REFRESH THE COLOUR PALETTE IN YOUR HOME
The holiday decorations need to be taken down first. As you pack away your holiday decorations for next year, you can begin to transition from your holiday colour palette of rich reds and greens, to a more fresh colour palette that is bright and inviting. Get creative and incorporate your favourite neutrals with pops of colour!
SWAP OUT PILLOW COVERINGS AND THROW BLANKETS
Accent pillow coverings and throw blankets are amazing because they are easily interchangeable and bring pops of colour, pattern and texture.
January is the perfect time of year to swap them out to create a fresh new space. You can also consider replacing your duvet cover for another simple refresh within your home.
SPEND A DAY ORGANIZING
Take a day or a series of days to organize and DE clutter your home. Eventually, we can accumulate a lot of stuff on shelves, surfaces, drawers, and closets. This usually happens for most of us after the holidays. By having a day or series of days within your schedule allocated towards this task, you can begin to reorganize, to create a clean and inviting space for you to start off the New Year.
SURROUND YOURSELF WITH GREENERY
Over the holiday season, you most likely had your home decorated with lots of greenery from beautiful strands of garland to the Christmas tree. Once all of that has come down, I always like to reintroduce greenery back into my home with all different kinds of plants. Greenery makes any space come alive by adding gorgeous pops of colour and texture.
TREAT YOURSELF IN A CALM SPACE
December can be a stressful and extremely hectic month. Take some time to treat yourself after the holidays.
Once you completed one, or all of the things I have listed above to help refresh your home after the holidays, it’s time for some self-care! Get cozy with your favourite blanket, light some candles and curl up with your favourite book or TV show. Or maybe for you, self-care means doing a home workout or enjoying a cup off tea… or glass of wine
Allowing yourself time to relax and enjoy your home can clear your mind and put you in a good headspace for the amazing year ahead.
