It’s always so refreshing to take down all of the holiday decor clutter and start with fresh decor. This year, my christmas tree was so dead that I had to take it down the day after Christmas and decided to pack up all of the holiday decorations along with it. It was nice to take the time to neatly put away everything (and even label the boxes!).
Since it’s still winter in Minnesota, I felt like I couldn’t come out with full-fledge spring decor. I stuck to more of a minimalist look grounded in white with a few hints of spring.
Decorating for Christmas is one of my favorite times of the year. Each year, I love to do a slightly different color theme or style, and I love buying new stuff on sale after the holiday and refinding it the next season! This year, I kept the look more simple and classic Christmas with mostly neutrals a few pops of red and a lot of greenery. I like to spread the decor throughout my house so there is a little something in each room.
Ever since I used my first real Christmas tree a few years ago, I never want to go back to faux. They are kind of a mess, but there’s just something about a real tree that feels more special (and you can’t recreate the smell!).
The past few years, I’ve cut down pine trees from my own yard that were the perfect size for a christmas tree and that I didn’t want to grow any bigger. I ran out of trees this year so I had to buy one. I love the look of non-traditional trees, so I opted for a douglas fir which is a little more fluffy looking.
While waiting on my new countertop installation, I have started pulling together some of the smaller decor items. As I’ve mentioned before, I really want to keep a retro vibe for the kitchen and keep it original to the design of the home. I am keeping the birch cupboards as is, and just refinishing the wood since the finish is starting to wear off.
It’s summer yall! Time to grab a cold drink and get outside (you can read my blog from your patio, just saying!). I’ve pulled together some of my favorite summer styles and ideas and have a free summer loving printable for you from the lovely Renee Sherwood Design. Check it out at the end of this post!
Making over a bedroom can seem like an intimidating task. Bedding is expensive and it’s hard to change one piece without it feeling out of place. I love to keep a minimal bedroom style that is grounded in white. This way it’s easy to switch out new decor or a new toss pillow without having to overhaul the whole room. Here are some of my favorite simple bedroom styles to inspire you!
