Christmas is my favorite time of the year! I always try to spread the happiness all year round, but there's something about the holidays that just bring the happy out a little more Trimming the trees!
As an interior designer I naturally love to bring spaces to life, especially in my own home! In this post I'll share my design ideas with you as well as where you can find these beautiful baubles.
I love pink! My bedroom was pink when I was a little girl and that beautiful hue has stuck wth me ever since. Now, when people hear that I have a cotton candy pink Christmas tree they look at me a little puzzled and say "a pink tree"? and I say yes, and it's themed! What's even more surprising to some people is when they find out I have more than one.....a lot more! :-)
This is my "Pink Parisian" tree. Adorned with glittery silver Eiffel Towers, metallic macarons, "water globe" shaped ornaments and much, much more. I used silver metallic wired ribbon to use as my garland and various silver tree pics as fillers. I brought the tree from Treetopia a few years ago, and she still looks great! They have a wide range of colors and sizes. There's no rule that says you always have to have a traditional green tree. Break away from tradition and experiment with colorful trees! The glittery silver Eiffel Tower ornaments came from Pier 1, the "water globe" Eiffel ornaments, macarons and Suzanne Kasler cream and ice blue round ornaments came from Ballard Designs. For the topper I decided to use oversized silver pics to create a unique look.
This beauty is the Blushing Vintage tree. All of my trees have themes, and I have quite a few! Again, there's no rule that says you have to have just one tree and that it has to be green. At first I wasn't going to use this tree this year, but I just so happened to be shopping at a local arts and crafts store a couple weeks ago and came across these absolutely gorgeous pink vintage ornaments.
Aren't they fabulous! The larger solid pink ornaments were ones I made years ago and pulled them out of storage to go along with the theme. Here I used gold embellished wired ribbon as garland and flocked tree pics to add a soft snow kissed look to the tree. I love flocked trees but did not get the chance to get one this year, so I improvised! Michael's Arts and Crafts had several fun Christmas collections this year, and the pink vintage collection was one of them.
This is Golden Opulence and I created this scene using gold tabletop trees from Ballard Design and the flocked gold tree from Michael's Arts and Crafts. The musical water globe, ornaments and snow bring the scene to life, and it doesn't take much to do this. You can create a small scene like this in any area in your home that may be lacking a little decor.
I call this scene Winter's Night. These are small table top trees and the white trees have a string of tiny LED battery operated lights. The trees are not heavily decorated, just enough ornaments and a string of turquoise blue garland to create the scene. The silver and gold reindeer complete the scene, and when the lights are turned on it really looks like a snowy winter's night!
I love decorating my home for the holidays and sharing tips and tricks on how you can achieve a similar look. Below are some more images, both day and night, so I hope you enjoy!
