Styling the Seasons – January 2016

Keeping it simple, stripping back, blowing out the cobwebs, refreshing and rejuvenating; this is what January means to me. One of the ways I try to motivate myself at the start of a new year is by having a clear, bright space, free of clutter – my way of taking control, I guess.

And what could be more simple than white Hyacinths against a white curtained window, which is open to blow out the old and bring in the new.

What does January mean to you? Charlotte and I would love to know and see your styled surfaces. It is such a worthwhile process to stop, reflect and re-style a surface in your home, clearing what was a dumping ground, especially after all the festivities and house guests. Tag me and Lotts and Lots and use the hashtag #StylingTheSeasons – either write a blog post or post a pic on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter.

Happy January styling everybody and i hope you have the most wonderful 2016!

    Beautiful! I love the smell of hydrangeas and how they bring a bit of sunshine into the home on these gloomy winter days. Wishing you a wonderful 2016 xxx

    This is so pure and clean. It’s a perfectly calm scene – just what we need after the busyness of Christmas and for a focused start to the year. I’d never think of planting hyacinths in china but it’s beautiful.

    These look so beautiful. I’m a huge fan of blue and white china — it reminds me of my granny — she had absolutely loads of the stuff! Hyacinths are such a beautiful spring flower — my bulbs have just started to shoot in the garden! 🙂 I look forward to seeing them in flower #StylingTheSeasons
