In our Style Challenge series, we ask some of our favorite bloggers from around the web to surprise us with their ideas for creating a stylish and functional space using Home Depot products as a starting point.
We’re thrilled to have Courtney Fernan of the blog A Thoughtful Place take part in the Holiday Edition of the Style Challenge. She used the Paley Pine Christmas Tree from Martha Stewart Living as the focus of her challenge. She shares her Christmas tree decorating ideas, including some very clever ways to modify your Christmas ornaments. And take a look at the stunning photos showing her shimmering Christmas display.
We opted for a neutral tree full of natural elements, various textures and a touch of glamour. To compliment the other design elements in our living room, we chose golds, creams and browns to create our look. And in all honesty, my daughter’s obsession with cheetah print definitely played a huge role in the designing of our tree. She insisted we use it somehow so we went for it! The DIY elements of this tree are super simple and can be done with very little time and supplies. (You can read more about how I layered mirrors above the mantel on my blog.)
