Holiday Decor Inspirations

I don't know if it's just me or if anyone else does this, but after getting ideas from magazines, catalogs, pinterest, and blogs I tend to find new inspirational ideas for holiday decorating every year. I tend to get rid of a few things each year, and add a couple new items. My tastes seem to change a little with every new year. I can't afford to throw everything out and start anew EVERY year, so I simply downsize a little and slowly add in a few new fresh ideas. Does anyone else do this?

Here are some lovely spaces I've found this year that I may incorporate into my decor next year.







I think I see a common piece in these pictures... greenery. I have been gravitating towards all photos with natural garland and plants mixed into the decor this year. I added fresh garland to my mantels this year, and I'm really loving the look it brings. To see more of my holiday decor favorites, you can check out my Pinterest board.
I don't think I'll be posting anymore for a few days, for I have a lot of "ing" things on my list... cleaning, baking, wrapping, eating, drinking, fa la la "ing"... well you get the drift.

I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas! Thank you to everyone that stops by this blog for a read, thank you to those that follow along with me on this blogs' journey, and thank you so much to everyone that takes a moment to comment. I really appreciate it so much! Happy Holidays!!!



The Rancic's New LA Home

Though I really enjoy watching Giuliana and Bill because it's fun to see into their fun, playful relationship with one another and to see them finally have their first child, but I am also very drawn to the homes that they occupy.
They recently bought a new home after selling this super cute, all-American white house with white picket fence .
This house is MUCH bigger and grander, but still has the same design feel as their previous home.
Most every room is filled with soft neutral colors, and lots of white. I love it all.
Come take a look:

Love the grasscloth wallpaper!


Great white kitchen with the mix of warm wood tones, and I love the panelled ceiling.

And their sweet Edward Duke's room.


This pool isn't too shabby either.

So, what do you think? Do you love this one more than their previous L.A. home?
Giuliana and Bill worked with designer, Lonni Paul on this home. Lonni was one of the participants in HGTV's Design Star in Season Four.

Christmas Around the Home

Here is a little tour of some more areas around the house.



And our tree....

 Bought this basket from Terrain this year, and I love it.

On our tree we have a mix of red, silver and snowflake ornaments with ornaments bought on vacations, homemade ornaments from the kids, and even a couple from my childhood.

Thanks for taking the time to see my home. Come back again.
