January Dining Room + A New Table
Every January seems to bring a clean and clutter free home after the holidays. I used empty walls as a chance to change up my old gallery walls. All the art and frames I already had, just mix and matched in new ways.
We were recently given a new table from a family member which also gives the room a new updated look. I am quite in love with the new table which also has two leaves! But even more, I am just thankful for a sturdy table. Our white one was hanging on it's last leg.
I decided to go with a corner gallery wall on the opposite side of the room. I like that it draws the eye to our chair. I have a few empty frames waiting for the right art find.
I kept the mirror where it was after I moved it back here for Christmas. This wall used to hold my old gallery wall while the mirror hung on the opposite wall. I cannot believe I kept these walls the same way for almost a year! I must be growing into my own design taste!
Bringing in a few leaves from the yard gets me excited for spring. This little vignette is also pretty identical to last January. It is nice to recreate a familiar January scene.
The house feels fresh, clean, and tidy. It feels good to have the house in order at the beginning of a new year. My heart is still as I set goals and feed off of the new year's motivation. Having a restful home helps me be more productive.
// Is your house back in order after the holidays? Do you like to change things up or does your home remain the same come the new year?
