Home for the Holidays!

I’m back home!  Did you have a great week of giveaways while I was taking a little R&R? I sprung into Christmas action as soon as we landed trying to get caught up with my holiday decor.  We spent Saturday morning picking out the perfect tree, and just like last year went with the root ball tree to replant in our yard after the holiday.

True to my predetermined Christmas decor theme, I stuck with winter whites, gold, silver, and browns/copper for this year.  Although I don’t feel like a ‘theme’ is always necessary, it definitely helps me to keep focus as I roam aisles of christmas cheer and reel in my thoughts to remain cohesive throughout the season.

The main change I made this year was to remove red from my palette and include levels of brown, bronze, and copper.  It meant that I didn’t have to splurge on new decorations, but just swapped out one color for another.  Adding some luxe texture like fur adds another level to this snowy theme that isn’t just represented on the tree.

How do you think the theme executed from concept to reality?

I have a ton of fun decor DIYs and tips to layer onto this foundation which I’ll be sharing over the next two weeks – Get ready for some fun and exciting new ways to amp up the holiday in your home (some you won’t even have to make a trip to the store!).

Have a LOVELY Monday!

    Love the tree and holiday decor. The palette you’ve picked is gorgeous…very classy. Especially like the bronze & copper. Have been patiently waiting to see how you’ve decorated since the little sneak peek a few weeks ago & you certainly haven’t disappointed! Am also loving the luxe sheepskin touches. Just need to see if I can locate some of the pine cone baubles here in England….Would also love to see pics of your porch/front door. It was lovely for Halloween so would be great to see how you’ve decorated for Christmas.

    I absolutely love your decor! It looks so clean and festive. I totally agree that having a theme is helpful when navigating the store for Christmas decoration. This year I made my theme “rustic chic” and it was significantly easier buying/making decoration without being overwhelmed my an abundance of potential colors/textures/etc. It’s also a lot more aesthetically pleasing :)

    Here’s a little glimpse posted today on my blog!

    JUST GORGEOUS. Simple, elegant, classy, crisp. I love it. Your home reminds me of a chic, cozy b&b I would love to getaway to during the holiday. Your eye for style is amazing!

    This is a palette I have been dying to create myself- I think you did just a beautiful job. I have so many vintage pieces that sometimes its hard to quiet the crazy colors but I envy your beautiful woodland scene.

    What a lovely home! I really like the colour scheme and the fact that you have kept things fairly simple yet it all comes together beautifully and is very effective. Lots of inspiration here!
