The holidays are in the rear-view mirror. Even the leftovers are likely gone. If not, it’s time to toss them. And now that you’ve put all your decorations away and moved your furniture back into its proper location, you may be wondering: how can you refresh your home after the holidays? Well, here are a few ideas to help you do just that.
First, The Outside
It’s as good a place to start as any. After all, during the holidays you may have gone all out on curb appeal. Lights, yard decorations. At the very least you probably strategically positioned your Christmas tree so passersby could marvel at your lights. Why not keep the decorations going in January and February too? Use natural winter foliage such as dried branches, white birchwood, or pops of red from winter berries with neutral hues like gray, icy blue, and white to reflect the natural style of the snowy season. These will look very nice adorning your porch, railings, walkway, or other areas.
Shifting indoors, think about a new accent color for the season. You can even create an accent point in the room with a new piece of artwork for the main wall of your dining or living room.
Your holly and pine may feel a little out of season, but other foliage can be perfect for this time of year, depending on the color palette of your home. Decorate with natural birch logs, white flowers, or dried eucalyptus. Decorative evergreens, pinecones, and grapevines are also nice winter options.

Enjoy The Day
Days may be shorter right now, but natural light is still there to enjoy. Choose sheer curtains and add reflective items to your darker rooms in order to let in more light. White string lights can also look very nice throughout the year.
