Menorah Inspiration

The Festival of Lights is well underway, and we love the beautiful symbolism behind the 8-day event. Another component we love? The decorations the come with the holiday, specifically the menorah. While the traditional menorah is beautiful, we also love these updated versions that will fit in with any decor you have! From rustic to goofy, there’s one for every theme.

Burlap Holiday Inspiration

Have yourself a very rustic Christmas by adding one element that is sure to add charm to your tree. Burlap is all you need to give your home that shabby-chic feeling that’s so popular around the holiday season. It gives your space a comfort and warmth, as well as a slightly undone aesthetic that makes anyone feel at home. Add a touch of burlap to your seasonal decor in the way of wreaths, garlands, ornaments or even small burlap trees! ae80188238a403264bb73e9c41bcbf46

Fairy Lights Inspiration

When it comes to decorating for the holidays, there’s definitely one type of decoration that transcends the winter festivities. We’re talking about lights, fairy lights in particular.  You may know them as string lights or icicle lights, but they can definitely be used in your decor long after the tinsel has been put away. CO14HOL_H26_p006x007Make a beautiful fireplace centerpiece with fairy lights under glass hurricane vases!

Color Story: Marsala

4

Pantone has spoken, and the color of the year is a far cry from last year’s Radiant Orchid! This year’s winning shade is described as “a naturally robust and earthy wine red color”, and has a fitting name to boot: Marsala. This beautiful color is a cross between a cool burgundy and a warm terracotta. We can’t wait to see how designers and decorators use this color in the coming year!
088832d0ba98346b98a7f9c75fac4a34We love this color paired with a light blue for an unexpected contrast.
