Holiday Decor


The tree is up and I've got the place as decked out for the holidays as I could possibly handle this year! I'm really pleased by the way my little fake white tree (purchased from Wal-Mart) turned out dressed with pink, white, aqua, and silver decorations.


The one downside of not having a real tree is the fresh piny smell. So instead, I loaded up on holiday scented candles that are displayed on the buffet and I filled clear glass hurricanes with colored ornaments that sparkle. (Notice the Louis Chair with the leopard pillow? I've been wanting to paint the frame white and recover it in a leopard fabric - what do you think? The other option would be a white frame with black ostrich leather - I just can't decide).

Notice the pop of pink on the couch? Those are the new throw pillows I had my mom make for me. I really wanted to balance all the dark gray and brown going on with brighter colors and I am so happy with the results! It's so easy to change the look of a room with new throw pillows.


I had this piece of Waverly pink paisley fabric saved, backed it with the pink fabric, and had a new throw pillow made. For some reason, paisley just reminds me of the holidays, it's cozy, and I love that it's pink and brown to complement the couch.
I love to hang glass ornaments from a chandelier. You can't see it in the picture, but I have this really ugly 80s chandelier hanging in my dining room, so the ornaments at least make it appear a little more festive and dress up the room for the holidays.

Looking gorgeous, I love a white tree.
I've decided not to put up a tree this year :( but will just get some bits and pieces to do some decorating.
I have a feeling with bubs coming this year was very important to bring that Chrissy family feel to the house.
Lovely xx

I am in LOVE with your gray walls. I hope this isn't creepy or anything, but I would sooooo appreciate it if you would share with me what paint color/brand you used. Love it! Also, did you use more then one shade of gray through out your house? I would love it if you shared with me. Thanks! johnnajayne@gmail.com
