Hello friends! I sure hope you are not getting tired of seeing Christmas posts yet 🙂 I think the biggest thing I have tried focusing on this year while decorating for Christmas is it’s not how much stuff you add, but what you add. I shared in my bedroom post yesterday that I wanted things to feel simple and fresh, with one to two statement pieces. And I feel like that has ended up being the theme in all of my Christmas decor this year.
And I have to say, I am not sad about it at all. In years past, I’ve started to feel a bit claustrophobic by the time Christmas actually arrives with too much decor added, and this year it just feels fresh with meaningful touches of christmas decor spread throughout our house. Come and take a look.
Whenever I’m asked how I would describe our “farmhouse style” I describe it more of how it makes you feel, not so much how it looks. Farmhouse style has become pretty catchy these last few years with it’s flexible meaning, and I love seeing everyones different take on it. But to me it represents a relaxed vibe, that says “Welcome, come on in and relax”. And I take that same approach at Christmas time too.
I want all my spaces to feel festive, but more importantly relaxing, fuss free, and a soft landing place to curl up in and stay awhile.
I shared earlier this week that we just put our tree up over the thanksgiving holiday weekend, which in blogging world felt extremely late, but this year with no deadlines I needed to meet early, I took my time switching over our decor from fall to winter.
Of course, once the tree went up, it meant a little furniture re-arranging, lol. My side tables played musical chairs until each one found the perfect resting spot.
Throughout the rest of our home you can see tiny pops of fresh greenery added and a little bit of that holiday sparkle in each room.
