6 Ways to Brighten Your Home

Here are 6 ways to brighten your home now that the Christmas decorations are gone

Whilst I love the tree and Christmas decorations, in January it feels good to get back to a little normality, give everywhere a good dust and tidy.

The house can look pretty bare after the glamour of the festive season though. Here are a few simple ideas to keep your home feeling ‘merry and bright’.

Flowers in the home

1. Flowers and plants

Fresh or faux flowers and plants bring much-needed colour on a dreary January day.
Fairy lights in the home

2. Fairy lights

Keep out one or two strings of fairy lights. Run along a shelf or fill a vase or pot to brighten up a dark corner.

4. Bright cushions

Add a pop of colour with cheerful cushions; layer several for maximum impact. Chunky knitted cushions would look fabulous (sadly I can’t knit!) and feel super-cosy.
Custom prints in the home

5. Make art from your photographs

Create canvas art from your favourite photograph (there are lots of websites where you can order) or pop photos into frames and hang on the wall. Images of happy holidays or days out will always remind you of fun times.
Candle in the home

6. Candles

Lit candles give anywhere a cosy glow, especially when the nights draw in so early. Place a candlestick (or several) in the centre of your table and light the candles each dinner time. Use votives and tealights in your living room. Remember to blow them out before bed!
