January Is A Fresh Start
Do you feel like that too?
After the Autumn decor, and Christmas beauties, I like to ease into January with a fresh look. I have a few areas right now that would seem minimalist, and you know what?
I don't like it, it's not "me."
Don't get me wrong. I do not love a cluttered look, but I like a cozy feel to my home.
I am working on a new look for my massive shelf over our stairway. It is a work in progress. It needs some height to it in spots, perhaps something tall tucked behind the jars. We'll see. I was inspired by my friend Amy's fireplace mantel.
I think I will add in my white pottery. It looks pretty at night with the lights on.
We moved an end table out of the living room in order to fit the tree in, and we put it in Sarah and Rachel's room. It works nicely in there for them, but I need something here in the living room to hold a lamp. This space is way to empty for my taste!
My own favorite look is a natural layered look. One that looks like you've gathered things over time and have out the things you love. Which is basically what I do.
This is a cozy corner and more of what I like. Winter is a dark and cold time of year and so I like light and I like warmth in my decor.
How about you?
