I hope you all enjoyed your wonderful Thanksgiving. Ours was relaxing because we didn't have to host this year and so we got quite a bit of down time to relax with family and do some fun winter activities. I didn't start any Christmas decorations other than planting two dwarf evergreen trees in our planters flanking our front door. I plan on cutting some magnolia branches to add to the planters as as well.
I did have some time to make up some 'wishful' guides the home! Ha! Priorities, right?? These are all things I love and would welcome as new additions to our home.
I've noticed over the year, when it comes to receiving/giving gifts, I much prefer to receive/give a gift for the home. Personally, I don't want clothes, shoes, jewelry, etc. I would much rather be gifted a piece for our home whether it's candles, a lamp, mirror, vase or throw.
I noticed a theme in my choices - lots of white with touches gold, blue, green and natural wood.
Over the break, I thought long and hard about our living room and kitchen which haven't been touched since we moved into our home. Our living room still sits unfurnished with only a piano and just primed walls (no paint). Many of these choices are influenced by those ideas - neutral base with touches of sky blue and sea foam green.
