Putting the holiday décor away is a bittersweet experience. It’s nice to have things back in order, but it can also leave things feeling… bare. After all, glitter and lights and packages galore can be a tough act to follow! If you now find yourself feeling the post-holiday void (or you simply want a new ‘do for 2022), try these three simple tricks:
1. SET YOUR SIGHTS ON HEIGHT
A common design slip comes when décor items used are all the same (or nearly the same) height. It’s one of the great things about a Christmas tree — it adds height to a space. Follow the pine’s flair for design and introduce another taller element into your space and see if it doesn’t create some more interest.
Height to Try:
- A tall furniture item, such as a cabinet or
- Floor lamp
- Plants: Why should evergreens have all the fun? Try a faux tree. Olive is one of our favs! (available at The Black Goose Design). If you have a green thumb, you can always go for the real deal, which is good for you and good looking!
2. ADD A TOUCH OF TEXTURE
Just as the holidays warm a space with furs and flannels and all the warmth of winter, texture can continue to create a cozy vibe well into spring.
Texture to Try:
- Add a throw to your sofa
- Try new throw pillows on for size
- Update an area rug
3. PLAY DRESS UP
Kids aren’t the only ones who love a good game of dress up. Dress those windows with new window treatments. Like icing on the cake, this is a sweet way to transform a space with a perfect finishing touch!
Treatments to Try:
- Drapery panels on larger windows
- Roman shades in the kitchen
