Mixed Metallics Christmas Mantel

Monday, December 2nd, 2013

Christmastime is here! Long time readers know Christmas is a really big deal in our house, we go all out with a big party for our friends and family each year (we’re talking 100 peeps!) and so the decking of the halls has begun!

Having recently painted the living room Rockport Gray, I started this year with the mantel. I love mixing metallic sheens and layers of white so I’m at it again. This year’s mantel is a merry and bright winter scene complete with a dash of sparkle and a bit of green.

I reused my ancient mixed metallic wreath again because I love it so. I bought it at Target six years ago and it always ends up somewhere (see it here and here in Christmases of yore).

Glitter tape dresses up a plain vase filled with light up branches and sit next to my favorite pair of reindeer. Our Pottery Barn quilted stockings are hung with simple ornaments to embellish.

Holiday Greenery Giveaway

Wednesday, November 20th, 2013

One of the most wonderful things about decorating in December is the scent from fresh evergreens on display in the home. When I come through the door, I pause and breathe in – it’s not Christmas without that smell! Fresh holiday evergreens are a wonderful gift for yourself or to send to someone on your list.

I’ve ordered evergreens for photo shoots from Lynch Creek Farm several times over the years and I love when the box arrives on my door a few days later filled with fresh greenery from the state of Washington. I ordered holly, a wreath, and garland in October to stage a few vignettes for the fabric and gift wrap lookbook and when I was done, I layered it in the living room – it lasted for weeks!
