Just looking at this blogger’s boho holiday home decor in the December newstand version of Better Homes and Gardens cheered me up so much I may forget about decorating my own place and glance back at hers every now and then.
Her orange living room sofa shatters the rule of keeping larger furniture neutral. “Orange is my favorite color,” Stacey says. “I say go for whatever works for you or your room.”
A tree of their own
Stacey converted her seldom-used dining room into a bustling playroom for sons Zion (pictured), 6, and Ian, 3. The smaller tree in the playroom is theirs to decorate as they please, and I am loving the colorful paper chains.
‘Grow’ your own wish list
After the traditional trees go up, Stacey takes on her annual project of making an inexpensive, simple alternative tree. Yes, you guessed it: This one is made of colorful sticky notes. That idea is certainly a keeper; and just think, you can write your Christmas wish list right on the tree, where hubby and kids are sure to notice!
It takes a village
Stacey downloaded this cut-and-fold, count-down-to-Christmas village on Mr. Printables. Each day Zion and Ian claim the treats she hides inside.
Rebel with a cause
“I might be a rebel when it comes to color,” she concludes. “I can’t remember the last time I did red and green at Christmas. I’m all for making new traditions.”
Does that rainbow-sherbet wing chair she’s sitting in count? I’m loving the stripes on the outside and the yummy pink inside. I just may be updating my own color scheme, for Christmas and beyond.
