Winter Decor at This Lovely Place

Changing up a few accessories for the season is a good way to keep things fresh. You don’t have to overhaul your entire house or even move furniture. Just rearrange an end table or the fireplace mantel for a little use-what-you-have decorating. Set it up, move it around and think about what it needs. Add a couple of new things and you’ll enjoy the view every time you see it.

Life is too short to live ugly.

I found a gorgeous ice wreath on clearance at TJ Maxx (one of my favorite stores!), and half-price wintery vine-y stems at Hobby Lobby to spruce up the mantel and TV armoire for January:




And then I peeled off the “Holiday Home” sticker on a spicy scented candle so it wouldn’t offend me. I love Christmas, but when it’s over, it’s over. 🙂

What’s your favorite January home decor? Please share…


  1. “Life is too short to live ugly.” What a profound statement! That struck me so hard. I’m going to write that on my mirror with the dry erase marker. Thanks for creating a bright spot in my mind.

      I think that humans are wired to long for beauty. When we surround ourselves with pretty things to look at, it lifts our spirits!

  2. I loved that statement too! For January, I have always decorated our house with all sorts of snowman decorations. Snowman tablecloths, wall signs, stuffed snowmen, pillows, candy dishes, etc. As long as the snowman doesn’t have anything Christmas about it. I agree, when Christmas is over it’s over!!! I actually decorate our house for each holiday or theme throughout the year. I love decorations!

      Ah, haha! I’m the same way–snowman decor is great, but it can’t have anything Christmas-y about it! In February I still use a snow theme but add hearts. Seasonal decor is fun!
