Happy New Year!
This is my first blog post of the new year after taking a much needed break to enjoy my family and friends. And I wanted to kick things off with some inexpensive and easy ways to refresh your decor after Christmas has been all packed away! 🌿
Some people feel like their homes are so empty after the holiday decor is gone. And some really embrace the fresh and clean feeling after decluttering their space. 🙌🏻 I am somewhere in between. I do enjoy a clean slate, but I also try to find ways to keep my home feeling cozy throughout the winter with textures and colors.
My design perspective during this time of year is to play off of nature first- think warm wood tones, and whites and blues (like the snow, the sky, rainfall, etc). Then, I like to incorporate some deep green colors that mimic those of what we enjoyed from our Christmas Tree through December. This color is another nod to nature, which will bring a warmth in without needing the trees everywhere! 😉
So, I’ve selected some of my favorite budget friendly pieces that can give your home a quick refresh after the holidays, and have you feeling cozy until the spring! (These items can also stay year round, or be used during different seasons! AND- these pieces can be incorporated into any decor style- Farmhouse, Modern, Traditional, Bohemian…. Win/win!) Enjoy 😊

Natural Water Hyacinth Round Braided Rattan Rounds LINK
These are great not just as placemats, but also as wall decor, a coffee table base, or placed under a table lamp. Anywhere you need a little warmth and texture, add one of these!
Natural Ramie Table Runner- Threshold LINK
This table runner is FULL of texture, and will be great for your dining space, coffee table, or entryway table.
Chunky Knit Throw Blanket- Threshold LINK
These blankets are perfect for draping over the arm of a sofa, chair, or spilling over out of a basket like the one below! 👇🏻👇🏻
Linen Throw Pillow Cover- Threshold LINK (multiple colors!)
All of these pillows create a great mix of textures, which will bring that cozy vibe. There is chunky knit, linen, velvet and even a nubby one! It’s fun to mix things up with textures, but adding in mixed patterned pillows in the same color scheme is great for a bohemian touch too.
Green Glass Jug Vase- Hearth & Hand with Magnolia LINK
These vases are SO pretty! The color is even more beautiful in person. These would be great to tie the green color together through your spaces: The tallest one is great for an entryway table next to a mirror, and the other 2 are great for coffee tables, dining room tables, shelving units, etc!
Safavieh Natural Fiber Collection NF467A Hand Woven Natural Jute Area Rug (5′ x 8′) LINK
You can’t go wrong with a jute rug! These are great as a neutral base and bring in a fresh, clean vibe without having to commit to a white rug!
Eucalyptus Pick Stem- Hearth & Hand with Magnolia LINK
Use these in your vases or layered into a tablescape.
Square Hyacinth Tray, 17.75 x 3.75″, Tan LINK
This is a great tray for a catchall on your entryway table, or in the kitchen. These can also be used as a base for a vignette in any space.
