What else could I be wild about right now but all the pretty Christmas decs up?

I already showed off my Christmas table decor, and pictures from my front porch (and those of some friends too!) but I just had to share what the inside of my home looks like this year.

And bonus – a couple friends were kind enough to give you a peek inside their homes as well! I love seeing how other people live, don’t you?!

Christmas table decorI love how Jen mixed and mis-matched her chargers on their Christmas table.

red and neutral toned Christmas decorI switched out the traditional red and green from years past and went with new neutral pillows and a couple pops of red. I love that it still feels festive but fresh.

Santa and DIY ribbon Christmas tressToday I’m celebrating the life of my grandfather, who just passed a couple of days ago. He carved and painted this Santa years ago, and I love that I have this reminder of him in my kitchen. To learn how to make these trees, copy the first step of this DIY, then wrap ribbon, using hot glue as you go.

Christmas mantel, neutral colorswhite and neutral Christmas decor for the mantelMy friend Laura just moved into a pretty home in Minneapolis, and I helped her put together her Christmas decorations the other day. I loved her neutral palette. She plans to add a few more pops of red, and she’ll be all set.

  1. Loved this! All of the decor is just gorgeous…
    I changed out all of my decor last year…everything is gold, red and cream now. Magnolia flowers, lots of “berries”…it’s cozy.

  2. May I simply just say what a relief to find someone who really knows what they’re discussing on the internet.
    You actually know how to bring an issue to light and make it important.

    A lot more people ought to read this and understand this side
    of your story. I was surprised that you aren’t more popular
    because you definitely possess the gift.
