Styling the Seasons: January 2016

Styling the Seasons January 2016 | Life by Naomi

After my attempt at a Flatlay for November 2015 Styling the Seasons, and the lovely comments I received on the blog and on Instagram, I’ve resolved to try to style a surface of my home more often this year.

It helps that I’m at home more this year, and should have a bit more time to fiddle around and style a surface. It also means I should be able to appreciate it a bit more.

For me, January should be a gentle start to the year. I love the Scandinavian concept of ‘hygge’ – a sense of cosiness, home and warmth – at this time of year. Yes, it’s a great time to plan and have good intentions, but it’s not, for me, a time of austerity and self-flagellation. It’s a time for spending time at home with family, which is exactly what I’m doing.

I’ve used a selection of blankets to represent the cosiness – and now that the cold weather has hit, they are definitely coming in handy.

The gypsophilia is a light, airy flower that I think looks gorgeous in a vase on its own. I’ve used it in my No 1 vase, to represent the new start.

The open notebook, on a blank page, is also a metaphor for the New Year, but it’s also because I am having to use notebooks like this all the time at the moment – I have so many blogging ideas, I have to keep jotting them down or I’ll forget them in my sleep-deprived state.

So many surfaces of our home get covered in child-related paraphenalia throughout the day, but this feels like a little corner of calm, just for me.

    I love the idea of having a corner of calm – we could definitely do with one in our house! I am a fan of gypsophilia and I like how you have incorporated it into your corner. A lovely idea, and I hope you have time to appreciate it šŸ™‚ #MarvMondays

      I love gypsophilia – I think it deserves to be celebrated all on it’s own, not just around bouquets. Thank you!
