Sure, the new year is a time for reflection and resolutions. But it’s also a time to treat yourself (and your home)! So while you’re devising grand plans to eat healthier, hit the gym more often, or finally get to work on that great American novel, don’t forget to set some time aside to relax and indulge yourself. It’s all about balance! While we can’t necessarily keep you accountable for those resolutions of yours, we can suggest some awesome ways to treat yourself and give your home decor a glow up for the new year and beyond.
1. Splurge for a Spa Day
You don’t need to trek to the spa or shell out a fortune to treat yourself this New Years. Bring out the bath bombs, a face mask, some new nail polish, a soothing soundtrack and bring the spa to you! And what spa retreat is complete without a luxurious robe to slip into after exiting the bath? Check out our collection of beautiful bathrobes! With designs ranging from short and flirty to waffled and warm, we have something for everybody and every body. Our assortment of bath towels from brands like Sferra and Peacock Alley also can upgrade your bathroom to that luxury spa feeling.
2. Buy Brand New Bedding
When was the last time you changed your sheets? After a luxurious bath or long day at work, there’s nothing quite like sinking into a fresh pair of soft, luxe linens. And what better time to treat yourself to a new pair than New Years? Whether you prefer crisp cotton percale or silky sateen sheets, we have a winning set for you from brands we trust like Sferra, Pom Pom at Home, and Peacock Alley.
3. Delight in Candle Light
Perfect for a little self love or a romantic evening with a significant other, candles are an easy way to treat yourself this New Years. Strew some scented candles around your bedroom or bath for a serene retreat or fill up a fireplace with candles of various heights and sizes for a cozy New Years look. Our go-to source for luxury candles is our Baobab collection. Originating in Tanzania, these candles each offer an enchanting sensory experience and look absolutely stunning in the home!
4. Lounge It Up
Don’t forget to spend some quality time with your favorite arm chair in the new year. Or if you’ve grown tired of that same old seat, perhaps a new lounge chair or chaise is just the treat to round our your New Years home decor. Either way, be sure to take some time out for a little R&R!
5. Refresh Your Pillows and Throws
Looking for an easy and affordable way to freshen up a living room or bedroom without having to change the furniture? Consider some new throw pillows and blankets! While pillows act as simple and cost-effective tools to spruce up your New Years home decor, they also make lounging in your favorite chair or bed that much cozier. For the wintertime, we love the fresh look of winter whites and grays like our new Joan Shimmer Stripe Hide Pillow or icy blues like our bestselling Shibi Indigo Stitch Pillow.

6. Crack Open a Book
While you’re lounging in that favorite chair of yours, why not crack into a new book? New Years is the perfect time to expand your mind and learn something new (or just enjoy the pretty pictures). Consider one of the titles in our thoughtfully curated collection of designer books from Assouline. Each edition is as beautiful as it is fascinating!
7. A Feast for All Your Senses
Even if your New Years resolution is to eat healthier, you can take a night (or two) off to enjoy an indulgent meal. And don’t settle for everyday dinnerware. Think festive! ‘Tis the season to pull out the fine china or even treat yourself to a new set of elegant dishes and flatware. After all, we eat with our eyes first. With their radiant gold accents, our Dauville dining set and Lenox dinner plates are some of our favorite selections for the season.
8. Break Out the Bubbly
No festive New Years meal is complete without some of the good stuff. And as one bottle never seems to be enough, this is a great time to wheel out the bar cart or have a wine rack stocked with some backup. Our Crawley storage wine cart offers the best of both worlds!
9. Deck the Walls (with Art)
If you’re wondering how to decorate your home for New Years, think beyond streamers and tinsel. New Years is the perfect time to treat your eyes (and those of your family and guests) to some stunning, new pieces of art. Switch things up and add a new piece or two to your collection!
10. Get Festive with Flowers
While flowers don’t typically bloom in the winter, that doesn’t mean you can’t fill your home with some fabulous flora (fresh or faux) this New Years. Flowers have been known to boost moods and they’ll make your home look (and smell) great too! And no bouquet is complete without a fabulous vase. Treat yourself to one of our exquisite designs! Our Miles ceramic fishtail vase looks lovely in a front entryway, while our Dauville bud vases make excellent table centerpieces.
