I have to say that Styling the Seasons brightened up my January no end; the styling has been so fresh, vital and optimistic. I didn’t quite know what to expect from January and I had no idea how everyone would interpret the month but I loved the contrast between the cosy, festive styling of December and this month’s light and breezy style. Every time I have seen a new shot of the lovely corners of your homes I have been more and more inspired to cherish my time at home and try to focus on the sometimes hidden beauty of January.
My absolute favourite came quite early in the month and I instantly fell in love with it. It was styled by Laura who hasn’t taken part in Styling the Seasons before, which makes it even better as I love discovering new blogs. I loved the fact that so many new faces appeared behind the hashtag this month. You must check out Laura’s gorgeous blog and the story behind her styling over on We Made This Home…
Another favourite was also from someone who took part for the first time this month and that is Caroline’s amazing ‘shelfie’ – err, how jealous are you of that shelf?! Caroline writes the gorgeous blog Scraps of Us.
A couple of other styled shots that actually made me gasp when I saw them were Charlotte’s (I know I shouldn’t really choose her but I genuinely loved her post) and Emma’s from The Vintage Good Life. I think the textures, colours and life of their styling are just beautiful and captured so wonderfully well.
I really hope you have found some inspiration from this month’s shots and could you be thinking about joining us in February? Next month we are teaming up with Laura Ashley to make it a bit more exciting and to celebrate their new Spring 2015 collection. Twelve bloggers will be styling the seasons as normal but everybody gets the chance to vote for which one you like the best. If you vote, you will be in for the chance to win a £50 Laura Ashley voucher.
If you need inspiration for next month take a look at all of the wonderful posts that were written and styled in January as well as hopping over to Instagram to see all of the amazing shots there – just search the hashtag. We are beyond thrilled that so many of these bloggers have joined us for the first time so do drop by and say hi:
