Happy New Year, everyone! Hope your holiday celebrations were wonderful. I always feel a touch sad when I put the holiday decorations away for another year, and so to keep our spirits up in this rather grey January month, I decided to add turquoise blues with citrus shades. This helps to give our home a clean, fresh look for the new year.
Don’t these colors just make you smile? They do me! I had all of this hanging around the house already, and I placed this vignette on our dining room table. The only thing new is the pretty dish towel, which came in a 2-pack from Dollar Tree!
Here’s a little display I put together for our sideboard. I like using brown with turquoise and orange–it acts as a wonderful neutral that is warm and inviting, especially during the winter months, and our couch provides that color background for the display. Love this little Dollar Tree bird in his stylish citrus lemon nest!
This is the top of the china cabinet. I love that trunk on the right–found it thrifting last year, and I love the orange and green tones of the artwork. One little tip that I can offer is don’t forget about using tissue paper when you decorate. It’s very inexpensive, but very flexible in use, so you can get just the right colors that you want without breaking the bank. Here I’ve filled a glass vase with it, and used it as a little nest for an LED pillar candle, so there’s no fire hazard.
I can imagine these colors in the Carribbean, and that makes me happy to think about in January when it’s chilly here!
What colors do you like to use after the winter holidays? I’d love to hear from you in the comments, so stop by for a visit!
