January/Winter - Vignettes


How to do January/Winter decor...do you go with the stark grays and whites that decorate our outside spaces?



Or do you keep the reds or greens from Christmas to add a bit of warmth?



I keep the winter whites and greys in my home...except for my middle bedroom that has a good amount of green, and one very dark den, filled with reds. I spend much of my time in there at the computer or on the sofa under a fuzzy throw watching Netflix. 



I considered adding in some green or maybe even lilac to the living room, but opted to stay with the quiet neutrals... 



I am still not tired of it, still not ready for too much change.



Give me a little texture, a little sparkle, a little rust...and I'm a happy girl.



I still change things around...I still switch out accessories and small pieces of furniture often. 



But you know what they say...


 If it ain't broke...don't fix it. 

Word for the Day: 

Psalm 119:156

Great is your mercy, O Lord; give me life according to your rules.

I'm always at a loss this time of year as to how to decorate the mantels. After Christmas everything looks kind of bland to me. Your gray pieces work well with the sparkle of silver accessories, Revi.

Ooooo we have the same ideas in deorating. Any with sparkle and tin are my favorite--my blog title. I love the globe and worn books--gorgeous. I had a little red for Valentines Day during February for more color.

Revi, I love your look! But you know me, I'm a color girl. Have lots of color in my home. I really love the neutrals but have a hard time doing them. I am drooling over that chippy ball! Thanks for sharing with SYC.
hugs,
Jann
