Welcome to our holiday home for 2012.
The colour story this year is: red, white and silver, with fresh greenery for contrast and pine cones.
Did you know that a bowl of ornaments is the easiest decorating touch ever?
I bet you did!
A few red & white pillows 'borrowed' from my son's bedroom and an inexpensive dish towel thrown on the coffee table take care of the textiles in the room.
It is so hard to get the light just right in the winter for pictures....but at least we have beautiful sunshine.
The subway art in the frame was a free printable from the 3 sisters at Eighteen25. Love their projects.
The tiny poinsettia is from the local grocery store...and is the perfect touch for small side table.
The martini bar got it's own little collection of pretties too.
Vignettes for the season can make a room feel so festive.
And here's the vignette I created for our dining table.
And no one is supposed to touch the m&ms until the green veggies are eaten!
I like to keep our seasonal decor fairly simple...vignettes and tablescapes do the job just nicely.
I used to hang stuff over windows and doorways, but I have simplified over the years.
And I find I feel happier with simple....less really is more.
Thank you so much for taking a peek at our holiday home!
