The past few weeks have been all about indulgence and decadence as we celebrated the festive season in style. But after the decorations come down, your home may be feeling a little lifeless and dull. If you’re in need of an interior refresh, why not start the new year by detoxing and updating your home?
Whether it’s a few small changes or a full overhaul, setting yourself some home goals can help you to create a happy place to live in 2020. Discover our resolutions for a refreshed interior.
Clear away Clutter
New year, new home! As January arrives, we all get the urge for a big clean and tidy. If your home is looking a little too lived in, clearing away clutter will instantly transform how it looks and feels.
So where to start? A good place to begin is to find a home for all those new Christmas gifts. Put them to good use or store them away until you need them. Then think about refining the rest of your belongings. Go through everything from your wardrobe to your kitchen cupboards and decide what you need and what you don’t. If you have unwanted or duplicated items, donate them to charity or sell them. The end result will be a much more streamlined, tidy home (and mind!)
Sort your Storage
Once you’ve got rid of any unnecessary clutter, the next step is to organise what’s left. Invest in stylish storage solutions that combine style with practicality. A statement shelving unit will allow you to beautifully display your favourite belongings, while storage baskets can be used to hide away everything else.
Refresh your Decor
One of the best ways to rejuvenate your home for the new year is to introduce a fresh pop of colour. If you’re looking for a quick update without replacing your furniture, try introducing a selection of smaller decorative items to complement your existing decor. Whether it’s a couple of cushions, a vibrant vase or a bright piece of artwork, adding an accent colour through accessories will instantly update any room.
Our favourite on-trend colours to try this season include ochre yellow and forest green.
Be more Green
Indoor plants are hugely popular right now and are a wonderful way to breathe new life into a space and create a connection with the outdoors. In fact, it’s been proven that plants help to purify and remove toxins from the air.
If you’re new to the world of house plants, succulents, aloe vera and spider plants are all easy options. For the less green-fingered among us, faux plants can be very convincing and are a great alternative to the real thing. Try grouping together multiple plant pots for a lush green display.
Don’t forget, it’s often the finer details and finishing touches that really transform an interior. Whether it’s switching up your furniture placement or introducing a few new finishing touches, it’s easy to make your interior feel new again.
