If you've read my blog in the past few months, you'll know how much I love Christmas, and Christmas decorating. I always feel refreshed, however, when Christmas comes down and the home becomes airy and bright again.
The rooms can feel empty, however. Here are a few ways of conquering the post-Christmas decor void:
1. Flowers. Paperwhites and Pointsettas are a must in my Christmas decorating, but I always buy enough bulbs to start a fresh batch after the Christmas blooms have faded. I also transfer my Pointsettas into beautiful planters, and keep them as long as possible.
2. Keep the winter comforts such as throw blankets, extra pillows, area rugs etc. I do like to lighten things up a bit by using brighter colours for my throws and pillows, as opposed to my fall look.
3. Bring the outdoors in. While the bows and greenery have been removed, you can still bring in a beautiful branch, perhaps with rose hips still attached, or if you're lucky, with the first buds of spring. Why not spray paint the branch white, and place on your dining room table for a wintery, yet fresh centerpiece?
4. Now is the time to sort, purge and organize the home. While I try to keep on top of this year round, I find that there's something in the air after Christmas, that makes us all keen to cleanse our home's palette. Bright, fresh, yet still warm and welcoming are my goals for my winter and post-Christmas decor.
Do you change up your decor with the seasons? How do you fill your Christmas void?
