Christmas Decorating

Thanksgiving is right around the corner, but as soon as we’re done stuffing our faces, we’re taking on the challenge of Christmas decorating. This year we’re loving the glitz and glam decorating for Christmas that involves golds, whites, mercury glass, and all things that sparkle. What do you think of moving away from the traditional red and green Christmas decorations? Yay or nay?

What we love most about this space, is how neutral and natural it is. The decorations blend in with the room and seem like they could be there all year round. It’s so simple yet classy and perfect for the season.

We don’t need a fireplace in Florida, but around the holiday season, we really want one. These white furry stockings look perfect on the mantle and create texture, while giving a glamorous feel. Not to mention the adorable mini ornament Christmas trees and the bronze Antelope head that may or may not hang there all year long. Mantles are one of the easiest places to change décor for each season.

This bedroom looks like the perfect place to cozy up with the family, drink hot cocoa and read Christmas stories on Christmas eve. Adding decorations isn’t limited to just the living room. The little hint of Christmas in the bedroom brings in more holiday spirit. Plus the wood framed sign and pillow can be moved to a different room each year so you never grow tired of it.

And of course, the table setting, because who doesn’t love Christmas dinner?! It’s a time to sit with all of your family and relax and catch up. Something we love for each season is bringing the outdoors in. For the Christmas season you could collect pine cones, spray paint them gold (you know we love spray paint) and put them in a big clear bowl and voila- you have a beautiful centerpiece.

We can’t forget the most important part of Christmas: the tree! We love a good, big, REAL Christmas tree. The scent of a real tree gets us so excited for the season. This one is beautifully decorated with neutral and shiny ornaments.  We prefer a tree that isn’t necessarily perfect; you know, one that has a few of those fun homemade ornaments that your kids made, or for us, our nieces and nephews, created.  After all, your home should always reflect who YOU are, and while having a beautiful home is the goal, the most important characteristic is that your home is filled with love and joy.  Happy Holidays, y’all!
