Styling the Seasons: January | Growing Spaces

An image of calm in amongst the chaos that reigns in our house right now. January has brought a lot of change – it started with creating two new bedrooms for the twins (which still need their finishing touches before I will share them here). Ez has moved into my old office upstairs, so all my things were packed into boxes before we could clear the room that was being used as a playroom downstairs to create a new workspace for me. Believe me when I say, there are boxes and piles of stuff absolutely everywhere.

I think I get this urge to move everything around every January. I become a decluttering fanatic, clearing surfaces, packing things away to allow more clear space. My brain is constantly whirring away, looking for the next area to tackle, mentally moving furniture around in my head to see if there’s a better arrangement. The list of jobs gets bigger and bigger, until eventually I have to admit defeat and sit down and do some actual work.

I’m definitely seduced by the promise of a fresh start that January offers. I love a blank page..

    This is so stylishly simple – I love it. All the changes going on in your home sound very exciting! Can’t wait to see the new kids’ rooms. Where is the newly painted floor? xx

    My office was in a bedroom upstairs, but as that’s now become Ez’s room, my office has moved downstairs into what was the playroom. That’s where we’ve ripped up the carpet and painted the floor!
