It can be challenging to decorate your home in January. Christmas is over, and it’s a bit too early for Spring decorations (even though we’d love for spring to come now)! Here’s a quick visual of a cozy winter living room with some easy January decorating ideas.
Layering textiles for the winter months
Considering it’s usually cooler here in January, there's no shame in piling up the pillows and blankets on any living room sectional. You can't have too many cozy pillows or throws in your living areas when it’s cold outside!
Some of those cozy throw pillows can be made with this nifty DIY pillow tutorial right here . Thrifting pillows from any Goodwill location in South MS is also a great money saver.
Christmas decor to use in January
If you keep a few Christmas decorations out in January, you can add some cheer to your home. Don’t pack up these things just yet:
1. white twinkle lights
2. mini tree decorations
4. timeless faux or real greenery like eucalyptus, air plants, succulents
Twirling some battery-operated twinkle lights around your coffee table centerpiece and mantel helps give these dark days some extra glow!
Decor colors to use in January
As for colour scheme, white works well in January. It highlights freshly fallen snow and a clean start to the new year. If you’re a colour lover like me, throw in a pop of pastel to serve as a nod to the coming Spring. I like to use soft pinks or corals in January because they flow so nicely into Valentine’s Day and Spring. You can also use navy blues and aquas as an accent colour during this time of year.
