Living Room Refresh

Hello friends! How are you this morning? Have you tackled the Christmas tear-down yet? It's quite a job! After I finally packed away the last of our Christmas ornaments, I knew I needed to do a little sprucing up in the living room.

It's always a little hard for me to decorate in the dead of winter. It's too early for spring decor and Christmas doesn't fit, but it's so blah outside that I want our home to feel welcoming and cozy.

This year I simply changed things up with different accessories. One of the great things about selling vintage decor is you have an ever-changing stock of accessories at your disposal. I try to use mostly what's mine so I don't get too attached to the things I have to sell, but shop products do make their way in here and there.

I think lots of pillows really warm up a space. I'm especially loving the two new burlap wreath pillows I got for Christmas!

The lovely fireplace shelves are still a bear to decorate. This time I used half of the Christmas layout with a few freshened accessories. I'm liking the tarnished silver and plates to add some depth.

Mmmm a basket full of cozy blankets and pillows is just what's needed in the middle of January!

This is the counterpart to the portrait book cover I told you about yesterday. Isn't it so pretty?

How have you refreshed your house after Christmas? Any good winter decorating tips? You know I'd love to hear!
