The prettiest little dressed up home...

I need to get working on feeling the Christmas spirit over here! I don't know what my deal is this year, hopefully sooner than later. Anyone else struggling? My focus needs to shift from the material side of the season to the real purpose. Anyway, back to the material side of things...




I fell in love with this home in Maryland that is dressed up perfectly for the Holidays. Of course I'm in love with the saltbox facade and the wreaths placed on every window. I will be copying this idea for next year. I am going to make myself get motivated to shop for Christmas decorations as painful as it is, once the prices get slashed after the Holidays. I am in love with the wreath idea!

The rich gold hues paired with white on the table setting look so crisp! I love the idea of using tree trimmings and twigs in vases.

The owner made this incredible tree skirt from a vintage Hawaiian skirt she found at a thrift store. Who thinks of these things? Brilliant!! I love the colors and pattern, so unexpected for a tree skirt but it totally works!

The use of the color green through out the home really makes all of the Holiday decor look very streamlined and put together even if the decor isn't necessarily holiday related. What a great idea to use a sash to dress up furniture to look festive.
I'm dying over the back of the chair, it looks as if a tea towel was used to drape over the top, I love it paired with stylish ribbon and a cute ornament.

I want to move in this home for the Holidays, I wouldn't change a thing!


What about you, do you have any Holiday decor ideas you want to share that are 'out of the box' no pun intended...
