Tips to Decorate Your Home for January

Now that it's January...


and the holidays are over; it's time to think about how you can make your home feel cozy and create an environment of warmth without the holiday decorations. During the colder months, it's about making your home feel inviting, relaxing, and cozy. Today, I'm sharing simple tricks to create a comfortable atmosphere that will make you feel relaxed all winter long.


Move Furniture Towards the Fireplace


Facing your furniture around the fireplace will keep you toasty through the winter months, and there's nothing quite like sitting around a fire on a cold night, all bundled up and watching a good movie.

Decorating around a fireplace can bring difficulty depending on your fireplace and furniture placement. Here are a few furniture placement ideas to help you with your arrangements.





Add Layers


Adding textiles, layers, and furs is a simple way to add warmth to your rooms. You all know my love of pillows, and pillows are an easy way to create a new look with your style. Remember also to have blankets easy to grab to curl up and stay warm.

Use Seasonal Greenery


After Christmas, our homes can seem empty and lifeless. Add seasonal greenery to embrace life and freshness, such as tree branches, magnolia leaves, fir, pine, or holly.

Add Winter Accents


With the sun setting sooner and the cooler temperatures, lighting a candle creates a sense of warmth in your home. Also, finding a candle with the scent of winter will change the entire experience of your home and make it welcoming for your family and guests.

Also, just going outside and finding pinecones is an easy and inexpensive way to give the winter feel without looking too much like the holidays.

Bake Favorite Winter Treats


Finally, I acquired this tip from Studio McGee. Baking your favorite pie, bread, cookies, or any winter treat will bring joy to your home during those bitter, cold months. Here are links to a few of my favorite treats: banana bread, chocolate chip pumpkin bread, and flat apple pie.
