It can be tricky to decorate your home in January. It’s too late for Christmas decor, and it’s a bit too early for Spring decorations (even though I’d love for spring to come now)! Here’s a quick tour of my living room with some tips on how to decorate during this often cold & dreary month.

Considering it’s been -30 degrees C here these days, I have no shame in piling up the pillows and blankets on our living room sectional. I don’t think you can have too many cozy pillows or throws in your living areas when it’s cold outside!

I made most of these, and you can find some of my DIY pillow tutorials right here.

I’ve also kept a few of our Christmas decorations out this month to add some cheer to our home. Don’t pack up these things just yet: white twinkle lights, mini tree decorations, candles and timeless faux greenery like eucalyptus.

Twirling some battery operated twinkle lights around our coffee table centerpiece and mantel helps give these dark days some extra glow!

As for colour scheme, I always think a lot of white works well in January to highlight freshly fallen snow and a clean start to the new year. If you’re a colour lover like me, throw in a pop of pastel to serve as a nod to the coming Spring. I like to use soft pinks in January because they flow so nicely into Valentine’s Day and Spring, but I’ve also used navy blues and aquas as an accent colour during this time of year, and they work well too.

Regardless of your colour scheme, adding some fresh or faux florals or greenery to your home in January will help ward off those Winter blues and remind you of warmer weather to come!
