After the Christmas Tree is Gone

 

The decorations have been taken down, there’s only the purple ones left in the quality street tin and let’s be honest, you feel pretty miserable, well were hoping we can cheer you up!

We spend weeks decorating our homes ahead of the big day, finding the perfect tree, spending countless hours choosing baubles to match the room and adding fairy lights to every available space. Suddenly your home is a vision of happiness, excitement and passion, you long every day to come home and snuggle into your cosy space by the beautifully lit tree, watch Christmas movies and entertain family and friends in your decorated home so when the time comes to pack everything up (Yes, even that last set of lights that you were hoping no one would notice) both reality and your mood can come crashing down.

 

All of the excitement is over and January is here – simply the most horrible month. New year, new me, the gym has gotten 10x more busy, your friends are doing Veganuary, Dry Jan or saving until pay day, the weather outside is miserable and you are often stuck inside looking at your now bare walls …so what can you do to make sure your home doesn’t look bare and empty after the holiday decorations are put up?

You loved your home before Christmas, you can love it again! Space isn’t a bad thing – nor should it be scary! Create a feature or focal point in your room and point

So what can you do so your home doesn’t look bare and empty after the holiday decorations are put up?

  1. Embrace the empty space!! We are a culture of clutter, often buying things because they are on sale or we feel we NEED to have the latest home craze, but you don’t! Find a few items whether that be personal or decorative that you simply love and allow them to do all of the talking in your room – remember less is more!
