Refreshing Your Home After The Holidays
As much as we love festive holiday decor, there's something so refreshing about taking it all down and having a clean slate. After the last Christmas cookie has been eaten and the stockings are put away, it's a perfect time to switch it up. Come along with us to discover easy ways to transition from holiday to everyday and create a fresh space to begin the new year!
If you're decorating a display piece like the Martin bookcase shown here, incorporating similar accents throughout your design will keep it cohesive no matter what time of year. We carried a palette of evergreen and crimson through multiple decor elements for a classic feel on these bookshelves.
When it's time to freshen it up for the new year, simply swap out the berries and garland for neutral florals. Shimmery silver candlesticks are gorgeous for the holidays and can easily be substituted with new pieces like a distressed metal hurricane or some textured ceramics for a different look.
Dress your plants up for the holidays in bright festive containers, then switch them out for more muted planters to take them through the rest of the year.
Classic pieces like an ivory ceramic bowl are perfect for filling with snowy ornaments and pinecones for the holidays then cleared out and replaced with natural cork or twine spheres after the new year. Try incorporating a bright art print to mix in some fun new colors.
Taking down the holiday decor can sometimes make your shelves feel bare at first, but keeping some areas simple allows your accessories to really shine.
A simple wire basket adds visual weight and tons of storage for decorative holiday accessories like blown glass ornaments or glittery pom pom garland. After Christmas, keep it clean and functional with colorful cookbooks and classic florals.
A few simple changes can give your home a fresh start after the holidays. Stop into Trove and we can help you find just the inspiration you need to clear the slate for a great new year ahead!
