cozy and warm christmas inspiration

Traditional Home
As I mentioned in my last post, I went with a bit of a muted and natural color scheme with our Christmas decor this year as a way to mix things up and make decorating for the season fun.  I think it all started with the addition of magnolia, which naturally encouraged more brown tones since the back of their leaves are brown.  I'm sure red return in our Christmas home in future years, but it's nice to take a little break now and then too.  I thought it would be fun to share some of the images that inspired me this season.  This feels a whole lot like a blog post I would have done about 6 years ago, before pinterest and instagram changed the way we all share inspiration.  These images (at least most of them) and links to their sources can be found on my Christmas Pinterest Board too.  

Now I'm off to trim our tree. Literally, trim the tree, because it is taking over our family room.  And smells quite heavenly too! Happy Sunday, friends!

  1. Beautiful! I'm really feeling simple, natural decorations this year, too. The image with the roaring fire is from Ben Pentreath - he's got a lovely blog you might enjoy if you don't already!

  2. So many great looks. I really am drawn to the brown and green, especially if some checked material is thrown in!
