Hello ladies! I hope that this post finds you enjoying the Christmas season this year. I’m actually writing this from a lovely little cafe in Europe. It’s been quite the whirlwind trip, but I’ve finally found the time to sit uninterrupted and get some writing done. There’s nothing better than finding a quiet spot to take in the scenery of the hustle and bustle going on at this time of year. Lots of people, smartly dressed and hurrying on the walkways and streets to get their holiday lists ticked off. I’m excited to share this trip with you in another post soon. While a trip this close to Christmas (+ pandemic) really had its challenges, I did get the house decorated before I left and I love how it turned out. I love seeing everyone’s homes at Christmas so thought I’d share my home Christmas decor with you for this year. Welcome to our little mountain home.
As I talked about in my Fall decor post, I like to switch out throw pillow covers and blankets to change up our space. I keep stacks of them stored in our linen closet for an easy transformation. These feather throw pillow inserts from Amazon are absolutely amazing and there’s no you can beat the price (2 for less than $20!). I like to layer lots of different textures for winter to create a warm, cozy feel. faux fur, cable knits, corduroy in rich colors really help to transform this room for the holidays.
I also switched out our stockings this year for these beautiful neutral ones from Amazon. They are a beautiful thick, cable knit and they came in a pack of 6 for under $40! I was very pleased with the quality. They come in other colors as well. You can check them out here.
The other thing I did this year which was a first for me, was I “flocked” our Christmas tree myself! I was a little worried about ruining our 12 foot tree right before taking off for Europe, lol but it turned out great and it was actually pretty fun to do! Let me know if you’d like to hear the steps involved in how to flock your own Christmas tree. You can see what it looked like last year here.
Ok, my time is up to finish this post! We still have a lot going on here and I’m very excited to share that with you! We’ve had the chance to take in some absolutely breathtaking Christmas decorations and strolling through a European Christmas market will really put you in the Christmas spirit! I hope you are enjoying your holidays and getting lots of time to spend with friends and family! Talk soon! Merry Christmas!
