I love the holidays. It is a magical time of year, however, it is exhausting. Once January arrives the Christmas decor I loved a few weeks ago begins to seem gaudy and overwhelming. My eyes long for a simple place to land…if this makes sense. I just wish undecorating was as fun as decorating. I like my winter decor to reflect a more scaled back, cleaner tone but I find if it is too austere, I get a nervous feeling…kind of like a hospital. I need some color. My kitchen was the first room to wear Christmas finery, and the first to be reverted to “normal but better”. It is also a great way to show off some new features of my newly updated kitchen!
Red berries that graced windows for Christmas, look perfectly wintry in an antique dough bowl.
The kitchen island just needs a few touches to go from Christmas to winter wonderland.
A new dish towel turned to pillow graces a kitchen chair.
Check out my new baking area! Everything I need is close by!
Our Princess loved the holiday season and had a few days to enjoy her favorite gift before the cold and snow hit us hard. Next week it looks more promising for a cruise around the neighborhood!
