Sharing a simple refresh decorating my home after Christmas.
It is officially 2022 as I write this!
My home has been given a new look with all my Christmas decorations taken down.
Here is a YouTube Video sharing a quick clean with me as I took down my Christmas decorations room by room.
It felt good to get my white iron stone dishes out and have my neutral colors back!
Here is my breakfast nook with some spring flowers that freshen up this area.
I added two white lace handkerchiefs with a white cake pedestal that’s holding a beautiful blue dessert plate in the middle.
I placed the white iron candelabra in the back to add a romantic look.
Lighting candles brings a cozy and restful ambiance.
Above photo is a close up of this beautiful crisp white look that I love so much!
Holding the bouquet of faux hydrangeas and peonies is a Pfalzgraff teapot.
After putting all my Christmas decorations away, I was so delighted to pull out my blue iron stone transferware.
Having this amazing plate shelf has made displaying my dishes a fun part of my decorating.
The shelf itself is beautiful on it’s own.
But adding these scrumptious blue dishes adds to it’s beauty.
Every season I add new sayings to this chalkboard.
With it being the New Year, it only seem appropriate to write out the word that describes what I want this year to be for my life.
I chose the word, BE.
There is something freeing to allow myself to just be who I am.
I went with a simple makeover of my fireplace mantle.
I added some faux candles to continue with that cozy feel I’m wanting in my home.
Staying with the theme of white ironstone, I placed my favorite Pfalzgraff bowl with a lid in the back.
It is one of my amazing thrift finds I found at Goodwill for $5.99 last year.
And a white ironstone teapot that I use sometimes to make my daily coffee.
Here’s a link where I share my weird way of making coffee.
I added neutral pillows to my antique sofa.
One of the biggest but affordable way to bring change to a room is through pillows.
If you haven’t seen my Christmas tour, I will link that here.
There was a red plaid blanket and green velvet pillows on this sofa.
I loved the nostalgic Christmas with all the reds and greens this year.
But this transformation with the neutrals speaks my language.
I’m loving it so much!
Simply adding blue placemats with a row of my favorite white ironstone pitchers to the middle of my dining table makes this room bright and inviting.
As you can see in the background, the frames are empty.
That is on purpose.
I will be putting some new prints from Etsy in them soon.
See how amazing those ironstone pitchers look lined up like that?
Such a simple way to display them together without flowers.
For this makeover, I wanted to hold back on all the extras.
To simply put out all the beautiful pieces I had tucked away during Christmas.
How fun it is to have them out again.
My living room gallery wall got a makeover.
The prints I originally had in these frames were put back.
They look lovely and add to the neutral look for this room.
I love the simplicity of nothing on my TV armoire or large blanket basket.
The neutrals give my home a relaxing feel that was an inviting change.
I hope this was inspiring as you put your Christmas decorations away.
