Now that the Holidays are on the wane, how do we refresh our horizons?
Enjoy the beauty of Winter! Use it as an inspiration for color, texture and appreciate the different ways the low light affects everything visually outside and in.
Cozy up your rooms with your new throws and pillows you put away for the holidays. Replace the Holiday decore with the serene look of minimalism. Refresh your look with colors inspired by nature, the blazing reds of the sunset, the cool, clean colors of snow, the browns, taupes, grays and textures of the trees. The deep color of the evergreens dusted with snow. Paint is your least expensive form of decore!
Now is a great time to review those lamps and lighting fixtures as well, lots of Home accessory items are on sale in January!! Take advantage of those sales! Most furniture stores offer delivery services, so you don't have to have a truck or s.u.v.!
Take time to review your landscape view as well! Is there something of interest out in the garden for you to gaze upon? Grasses swaying in the wind, red berries standing out against the snow cover, twisted and contorted features of Harry Lauder's Walking stick, curly willow? Stark shapes of stones against a winter sky?
Do you feed the birds? Have you planted wildlife food sources? Fruit trees, Grasses, hickory or other nut bearing trees?
Now is the time to browse those seed and plant catalogues, review your notes from your garden log or journal and plan for the upcoming season!
Of course it's also a great time to take advantage of your local Interior Designer, Decorator and Landscape Designer. They can help you navigate the design process and create your new vision! So, give them a call!
