This season I tried to not feel the pressure of the Holidays and enjoy decorating my home.
I've shared my front porch the last few years, so am showing the patio area which we added lots of fresh greenery.
I usually add fresh cedar and pine throughout the house and this year incorporated some hemlock.
Eucalyptus is another favorite and as always I force paper white bulbs during the Holidays and even into January.
I already had this grapevine wreath which I just added some cedar which was very easy and free.
More greenery and pine cones added to this area which always looks nice and simple among my ironstone.
This eating area of our kitchen got more of the same with cedar greens and poinsettas.
Both our trees this year are natural Noble Firs and this one in the living room is sitting in an old crock with just lights. More fresh greens and architectural candlesticks are on the mantel with red striped vintage grain sack stockings and pillows finishes this room.
The other tree is in my bedroom and is decorated in clay, wooden and birch stars. The chunky knit stockings and tree skirt in here are both from Crate and Barrel.
I was going to change out the indigo pillows and footstool, but decided I liked the pop of color in this area.
And the bed area was kept very simple.
The stairs come down right in front of these French doors and even though the weather here doesn't allow us to spend much time on our patio, I have enjoyed seeing this area outside these doors and the windows in my living room.
I always want so many wreaths that my husband and I made these ones with different kinds of greens from our property. We made them so there is greens on both sides so they look pretty from the inside as well.
Wishing all of you a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
