Every year when the temperatures begin to drop it takes everything I have to not start breaking out my Christmas decor and start decorating the entire house! This year I’m caving a little early (we usually don’t start decorating until after Thanksgiving), but with the cold we’ve been having I decided it was necessary to get a head start. For my decorating, especially Christmas decorating, I love mixing classic pieces with more modern ones. Take the stripe container for example, it has a classic metal design with a modern, Christmas-y print (and is perfect as anything from a flower and candy cane vase to a card holder!). The Kate Spade ornaments are another obvious staple with an adorable modern twist – I’m hoping to decorate with a more neutral pallet of white, black, and gold ornaments this year. Around this time (especially in Decembrrr) I’m also stocking up on blankets – in our climate you can never have enough! I think what’s even greater about trends this year is that I can walk around wearing one and be considered “fashionable” (take that mother nature!), but back to the decor. I’m also loving the adorable “JOY” display – I think it’s not only insanely cute but a good reminder during these hectic times about what this season is all about.
