Thank goodness it’s Friday or as some like to say TGIF! I’m super excited because I’m so looking forward to my 3-day weekend so that I can catch up on some sleep and catch up some work that I’ve been needing to do since idk probably November. Don’t worry it’s not that I’ve been procrastinating it’s just that I’ve been so busy and then the holiday rush… well you guys get it.
So one thing that I have been able to do is clear out my place of all things Christmas! I know many people were able to take down their tree the day after Christmas but something about that seems cruel to me I don’t know. (Maybe it was all the Disney movies I’ve watched as a kid 🙂 ) I don’t know about you but once that tree comes down and the stockings are put up for next year it seems like your place is well… empty. I hate that feeling and I hate looking around and thinking something is missing so luckily I’ve come up with 5 ways to not get that feeling.
- Use white colors
Okay so I always kind of use white around my apartment because it makes it feel light and airy. (This also could be just me just saying.) I just feel it gives it a very open and welcoming feeling and the fact that I have a huge window in my living room helps bounce off that white!
Nothing says hello new season that pillows! Here’s a fun fact about me I’m obsessed with buying throw pillows (my bf hates them) no matter how many I already have at home! The current colors I’m using in my décor I’m obsessed with because it’s a color one that one I love and two that both my bf and I agreed on.
- New wall art
My wall art isn’t new so let’s not get it twisted (you know this if you have come over) but with the holidays colors gone it goes so much better with my décor again! Everything flows and just brings the whole living room space together!
I promise I have curtains and also that I’ve been living in my current apartment since August and have yet to put them up (maybe a this weekend chore). Curtains can make a space have a whole new perspective. You don’t realize this until you throw some up and are like “wow look how much bigger it looks and more put together.”
- Flowers & décor
Artificial flowers are another one of those things I’m obsessed with buying! Don’t get me wrong I love the real deal (especially in the kitchen or on the dining room table) but having artificial flowers that are seasonal are great! Again, with the color white I love any white artificial flowers (I currently have peonies and white glitter feathers behind them). As far as décor anything that goes with your them I would say is a yes! I have course have some coffee table books and to go with my décor I have a vase that is filled with sand and shells and has a shell candle! (Beach theme right here obviously!)
I hope this helped many of you that were or are still on my struggle bus of letting go of Christmas. Don’t worry guys in another 11 months we can bust it all out! (For some of us 10 months 🙂 ) I’ve linked some of my favorite home decor pieces (some on sale!) at the bottom for all of those looking for a refresh!
I hope everyone has a great weekend!
