It’s always bittersweet taking down the holiday decorations. Things can feel a little drab after the sparkle and shine of lights and glitter, wreaths and decorations. And yet, they’ve served their purpose and it’s time to move on to what the New Year will bring. So if you find yourself looking for a way to fill the space that the holidays left open, we’ve got one word of advice:
It’s amazing what an infusion of color can do to bring back that festive feeling in a fresh, new way. Here are some easy ways we’ve found to start the year In Full Color…
ADD A POP OF PINK
|Pillow – Klassik Living :: Sheepskin, Striped Rug – IKEA :: bookshelf – CB2 :: chair – DWR|
It only takes a little shot of hot pink to make a big statement! This felted wool pillow does the trick, while still inviting you to have a seat, grab a book, and stay a while.
CONTRAST ORANGE AND BLUE
|Cymbidium – SF Flower Mart :: Pot – Aw Pottery :: Wooden Boxes, Pillow – CB2|
We love the color of this big vase, especially when contrasted with one of our Faves, orange. And Cymbidium are a great way to add some color to you home, indoor or out, because they are so hardy.
BRIGHTEN UP WITH YELLOW
|Lemons – Berkeley Bowl :: Narcissus, Flowerpot – The Gardener|
As we mentioned last week, citrus fruits abound this time of year. This simple bowl full of bright yellow lemons makes a sunny vignette when paired with clean white narcissus in a yellow pot.
So instead of seeing the empty spots where holiday cheer used to be, look at the spaces as an opportunity to introduce some bright, bold color into your life. The answer could be as simple as a bowl of oranges and as lively as a plant. Take a look around. The world is full of color!
