When my friend Summer from She Leaves a Little Sparkle asked me to participate in her summer blog hop featuring how to mix vintage decor with new, I knew I had to join in! If you’ve been reading my blog for awhile, you know mixing vintage and new is not only something I do personally in my own home, but it’s a tenet I firmly believe in with regards to decorating. In fact, I spoke about it as one of the most important things you need to do to get the “collected, not decorated” look in my series Collected Look Essentials.
Since spring isn’t quite like Christmas, with access to so many decor items, I tend to keep it pretty simple. I adore white flowers, and I try to have them as a focal point. I especially love the crisp green of the leaves mixed with the bright white flowers.
Thank you to everyone who stopped by the first part of my Holiday Home Tour, I really appreciate all of you taking the time to visit! The reason I split my tour into two parts is that the two areas of my house are decorated so differently, they just didn’t seem to belong in the same post.
Today I am opening my doors and sharing my holiday home decor with you as part of the Holiday Home Tour hosted by The Avery Grace! I am one of eighteen bloggers and businesses asked to join and and I am so thrilled!
I absolutely love decorating for Christmas. Growing up I couldn’t wait for the season to start, and I was usually the one bringing out the bins from the attic and putting out the decor. Christmas has such warm memories for me, and part of my decorating is not only to celebrate the season, but also to hopefully create those same warm memories for my own children. Much of what I have is something we use over and over; ornaments and decor that we’ve used year after year. I love the traditions that the season brings, and the meaning that those traditions bring. So welcome to our home, and come on in!
