Ivyline's Reactive Glaze Planters and Bowls in emerald

January Journal

A fresh start for a new year

After the festivities of the previous month, the house can sometimes feel a little empty and dark, making January the perfect time for a fresh feel to your home. A time for new beginnings, the start of a new year and a new month is a great time to reorganize, declutter and clean your home, but you don’t have to completely redesign to bring a fresh feel to a space!

We’ve put together four simple ways to help you refresh your home for the new year.

"...you don’t have to completely redesign to bring a fresh feel to a space!"

1. Elevate your houseplants

Bring a fresh dimension to hallways, living rooms and dining spaces with our indoor plant stands

Simplistic yet stylish, our Water Hyacinth Lined Basket adds a homely feel to interiors while the elegant Kensington Metal Planter Stand is perfectly finished with a lower shelf for your favourite vase or collectables, as well as a planter top to showcase your favourite plant. 

2. Running out of floor space - hang your plants!

Hanging plant pots are a great way to add interest to a room, even when space is limited, save on floor and shelf space by tapping into the vertical planting trend

We love the indoor Kensington Hanging Planter to bring a vivid touch to any of the relaxation spaces in your home. The brass trim and its overarching design make a bold statement and provide the perfect setting for your favourite plant. 

Or for a more elegant finish, why not opt for the Indoor Mayfair Hanging Planter, available in two colours: antique brass and copper. The green hues of your favourite houseplant will contrast beautifully against the metallic finish of these planters, making them the perfect addition to your home and giving a fresh feel to your existing design.

3. Add some mood-boosting houseplants

A simple, mood-boosting way to brighten your home is with a houseplant and pot! 

Whether you opt for a statement planter, like our Reactive Glaze Planter in emerald or sapphire, or our timeless Pot Como, studies have proven that indoor plants improve concentration and productivity, reduce stress levels and boost your mood. 

Create a botanical haven with a range of easy-to-care-for fauna, such as Aloe Vera, Spider Plant, Snake Plant or Cacti. Or why not opt for an air-purifying plant, such as Boston Fern, Weeping Fig, or Dracaena, to provide you with fresh air during the darker months.

4. Get cosy

However, sometimes you just need to embrace the grey, winter weather and continue to hibernate with some seasonal warmers. 

With temperatures set to stay low for the month, keep the fire stoked with our fireside companion sets and log storage. The Antique Copper Fireside Companion Set is the perfect blend of a rustic modern feel with its wooden handles and copper finish, and pairs beautifully with our Luxury Leather Handle Log Holder.

Or create a cosy ambience with our charming Hampton Hurricane Lanterns. Oozing luxury and helping to create a warm and snug atmosphere throughout your home, this pair of lanterns are the perfect finishing touch to your hearth.
