Spruce Up Your Living Room After Christmas

After Christmas we all have to go back to work and take down our lovely Christmas decorations. We have a few ideas how to spruce up your house and living area after the festivities!

As we try to battle the 'after Christmas blues' we can find it hard to get back into the swing of things. This year Christmas and New Year fell on Friday which meant a lot of time off work for Monday to Friday workers.

It's time to begin dieting after the Christmas food binge and saddest of all, take down all the Christmas decorations.

Here at Appleyard London, we believe it's good to surround yourself and your home with beautiful things. Not only has it been scientifically proven that improving your surroundings brightens your mood but it's a perfect way to combat your January blues.

A great way to bring some life to a room is to add plants! As you will know, they give oxygen back to a room! All you need to remember is to water and neuter it and it will look after you too.

4. Potpourri

If you're missing the aromas that your Christmas Tree emanates, potpourri will bring some lovely scents back into your home. There are many options for your potpourri, such as leaves, oranges, acorns and flowers, that have classic rustic charm. You can even indulge in some crafting and make it yourself!

5. Paint

Although this may not be one of the easiest ways to spruce up your living room after Christmas, it will definitely bring new life into the room and push those winter blues away. Choose a colour pallet like this that resembles the winter months but could easily transition into spring with a pop of colour.
