The January Blahs

January is a very difficult month for many people. It is cold outside and many of the days in January are gray. The Christmas decorations have just come down and the house seems blah with no seasonal decorations!

Keep some red decorating items in your home after Christmas. Red will add brightness to any room and transition your home after the Holiday Season. Valentine's Day is around the corner and red is perfect through the middle of February.

Items of Interest

Add color to your home during this cold and gray season with candles, table decorations, plants, and even Wreaths. Candles are an easy way to distribute color to a shelf or table. Most likely you have a red candle or two left after Christmas.

Table decorations using greenery and a red bow are very effective. Center your table with this cheerful arrangement and brighten the whole room. A simple green wreath with a red bow or red apples or even a red butterfly will add cheer to your front door or fireplace during the month of January. Decorate a lamp shade or candle with a bright redbird or butterfly. Bright place mats and table runners can brighten your kitchen eating area.

My geranium is blooming right now. I placed it on the front porch for color. It loves this winter weather in Central Texas. Do you have a scatter rug with red that you can place in the entrance hall?

The month of January is a long one with thirty one days. You have plenty of time to put some special color into this often difficult time of year. The daylight hours are short and Depression is a reality for some people because of the lack of sunny days during the winter. Now is an important time to be creative and colorful. Have fun!

    Pmccray, a woman after my own heart. I love the seasons and changes of color for decorating. My kitchen table changes with each season and so do other parts of my home. Enjoy your January decorating.

    These are some great ideas. I'm into seasonal changing of my home decor and adding a flourish of color is just what the doctor ordered. Voted up, marked useful and shared.
