Christmas decor with natural elements is a trend we love. Evergreen sprigs provide Mother Nature’s balance to the shiny and glittery aspects to holiday decorating. Nya of Freckles Chick demonstrates this so beautifully with her holiday living room decor.
It’s part of our Holiday Style Challenge series, in which we send mystery boxes of Home Depot Christmas decorations to exceptional style and decor bloggers to see what terrific holiday decorating ideas they can generate.
Nya has so many great ideas here for creating a unique look for Christmas, including some clever modifications of the decorations we sent her. Read on for inspiration for your own holiday decorating.
There are so many reasons to love every season, but the Christmas/holiday season gets 110% of my attention around here! To me, there are few things more heartwarming than cozying up with family, twinkling lights, warm mugs, and stories that embody the essence of the holidays. There’s something truly magical about peeking outside to see the blanket of fresh snow, moonlight sparkling off of it, awaiting those first boot prints to crunch through come morning. Even with the hustle and bustle, it’s an enchanting time. We’re especially excited this year as we have a spunky toddler in our midst!
So I was thrilled to have an excuse to usher in the holidays a bit earlier this year, thanks to The Home Depot Holiday Style Challenge. For our tree, I thought I’d stay true to our home’s aesthetic: neutral tones with a nod to nature, glitter, shine, and the unexpected.
I flock to shiny, glittery things. My husband however, is forever reeling me in to ensure that our home isn’t one blinding, reflective abode that can be seen from space. Thanks to his, ahem “helpful feedback”, I’m mindful of tempering all that glitters with rustic notes. It’s a compromise that I’ve embraced, and I had the best time incorporating this look into our tree.
