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!
As the weather gets colder, we take a fashion cue from Northern Europeans who are used to the blistering winter chill. We cuddle up in cozy sweaters and leggings in comforting Nordic prints. This festive print is characterized by wintery patterns of reindeer and snowflakes often seen on knits. We love combining a Nordic print sweater with a flannel underneath, a pair of jeans, and comfy boots. Or you can style Nordic leggings with a slouchy sweater! It’s the perfect print for a casual night spent with friends and family.
So you’ve got your tree decorated. Now what? How do you make your home even more festive for the holiday season? If you happen to have a second story, your stairway is the perfect canvas. There’s nothing like a garland wrapped staircase to really add that extra touch to any home for the holidays. Whether you’re working with fresh and fragrant evergreen branches, or decide to spruce up the spot with ornaments and decorations, this extra step really gives your home a feeling of holiday comfort and warmth.
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. Make a beautiful fireplace centerpiece with fairy lights under glass hurricane vases!
Add them to your living room decor for a whimsical and relaxed vibe!
Combine your lights by using fairy lights on the wire that connects your pendant light!
Or create a cozy corner for playtime.

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.

We love this color paired with a light blue for an unexpected contrast.
