Post-Holiday Interior Design

The December holidays are over, the new year has been rung in, and you’ve finally begrudgingly given up your Christmas tree.

From Cedar Hill Farm House

Garland no longer graces every corner of the rafters, lights have stopped twinkling from the roof.


For those of us living in the Pacific Northwest, that can mean a sense of dark dreariness, as the colors of Christmas fade and grassy fields become muddy swamps.

Inside your home though, the empty spaces left by decorations put away can be refreshed, bringing light and joy back to your home.

  1. Embrace the open space!

Go through your existing belongings and pare them down. Do the things on your shelves bring you joy? Do the magazines on your table clutter it or draw your eye attractively?

2. Re-Organize

Have you always wanted to rotate your bed? Try it?

Never used curtains to style? Hang a set for the first time! Re-paint your kitchen, remodel your bedroom, or hang a new photo arrangement over the hearth.

     3. Buy New Things Sparingly

After having re-arranged existing items, do you still find your home’s interior lacking? Narrow down exactly what you want: Would a recliner in that corner where the Christmas tree used to exist really tie the room together? Would an eye-catching centerpiece dazzle your guests and capture the spirit of your dining room?
