You know what they say- new year, new home decor. With the beginning of each new year, January encourages everybody to hit the reset button – make some resolutions, hit the gym, find a new mantra or start a new project. In the spirit of that trend comes the instinct to freshen up our home.
Once the Christmas decorations have come down, your interior can suddenly feel quite bare and unadorned. While January is a perfect time to declutter. It can also be a time to update your home with a few key pieces. No one has the budget to redo their home year after year to meet the current trends and colours. But, one of the easiest ways to make a change is to find a new unique accent piece for your table like a vase or sculpture.
We absolutely adore this funky sculpted vase that is handmade at Hillborn pottery in Cambridge Ontario and is available for purchase at Serenity Lavender Farm. This fashionable vase can hold water and is suitable for fresh or dry flowers…. like lavender. We of course love, love love the periwinkle colour and blue accents. It is a perfect statement piece to perk up a room in shades of grey, cream, beige or white.
Another cool piece or rather pieces for winter is this winter wonderland… you can keep a bit of the holiday season in your home all winter long and brighten up any space with it’s vibrant colours reminiscent of the northern lights in Northern Ontario. These pieces are again from our friends at Hilborn Pottery and available at Serenity Lavender.
Simplicity is sometimes best and after indulging over the holidays we are partial to this DIY idea. All you need is a metal tray. Spray paint it to suit your taste- pewter would be fantastic. Then find 3 glass vases even from Dollarama or mason jars and add some dried lavender – available at Serenity Lavender. You can even add some ribbon but we like the unadorned elegance of this centrepiece and so simple to make yourself.
