    Everything always seems to slow to a crawl after the holidays, just as the long winter months are settling in. But don’t let the short, gloomy days get you down. Instead, spruce up your living room with some new looks that are sure to brighten any interior.

    But where to start? We’ve got you covered! As we do every week, we’ve been scouring Instagram to see what’s trending in the decor world—focusing this time on living rooms.

    And we can certainly see why these were the most popular posts of the week: They’re all sure to keep those post-holiday blues at bay. Best of all? If you like these designs as much as the internet does, we’ve uncovered some items you can buy to steal the look.

    1. Rustic-inspired brick

    If your living room walls are looking a little bare without all the holiday decor, consider refreshing them with this exposed brick, as featured by @kunis_lovely_vintage_home (reposted by @cozyhomeshots).

    “Showcasing exposed brick provides a lot of visual interest in the living room,” says Laurie DiGiacomo, principal designer for Laurie DiGiacomo Interiors. “Exposed brick is an extremely versatile design element—it can be made to look rustic, industrial, or lend a refined or period-specific look by keeping its natural color.”

    Having just one coffee table is so 2019. Opt instead for a series of little tables that can be mixed and matched, like the ones pictured in this photo from @yvonne_kwakkel (reposted by @homeaura).

    “Love this! I’ve been doing this for years in the spaces I’ve designed,” says Doreen Amico-Sorell of Sorell Interiors. “It’s enlightening to get away from the matchy-match décor of the past.”

    3. Stylish storage baskets

    We all have a bunch of random stuff floating around our living rooms, especially after the holidays. Check out this extra large stylish storage basket—like the one we see in this post from @liketoknow.it (originally from @theheartandhaven). This way, you can keep all that stuff handy, while still ensuring that the living room doesn’t look as if a festive hurricane just passed through.

    “Baskets have always been a great way to attractively corral all the things,” says lifestyle blogger Erica Jabali of I Spy Fabulous. “The trend continues with even larger, lidded storage baskets, which offer a gorgeous way to store things you use within reach, but covering them with a basket that doubles as a piece of art.”

    “We all love the power of a good throw rug to change the look of a space quickly, easily and affordably,” Jabali says. “In 2020, we’ll see a resurgence of brightly colored throw rugs—a change from the muted, understated rugs that have been popular.”

    The darkest days of the year are upon us, making it the perfect time to upgrade your living room lighting. This week saw a lot of likes on Instagram posts that featured bold lamps, like this overarching wall-mount featured by @istome_store.

    “Lighting is a fantastic way to add high style and dramatic decor to the living room,” DiGiacomo says. “This trend works because overarching lamps are functional, yet also provide an artistic sculptural element.”
