Welcome Home for the Holidays
This is our first Christmas in our new home! Decking the halls brings on a fresh meaning when you are decorating a new space for the first time. It is great fun placing the decorations you have had for years. Unlike the past, I keep adding more pieces as I find them. While I have so many ideas for the future, I am trying to stay present in this year. It doesn’t have to be perfect – just festive and bright.
I'm not so much a red and green holiday girl. Instead, I love to focus on gold, silver, white, and typically, an icy blue. To set the tone, I love matching my holiday décor with existing colors in the room.
This year we tucked our tree in the corner, behind the seating in our great room. It’s much easier than rearranging all the furniture like we have in the past. The tree adds a little magic to the room with its beautiful light, especially at night.
Our kitchen was fun this year too. The first thing we placed was a lovely wreath over our cooktop! Adding décor all around makes every room warmer and more inviting. Like many of you, we gather here often, and it’s nice that it’s as festive as the rest of our home.
It is such a special Christmas for us with a new home and being recently married. It will be so nice to welcome all of our families home here for the holidays. I’ll have even more to share for the holidays, so stay tuned!
