Designer Carrie Waller understands the importance of caffeine on Christmas morning. Santa goes to a lot of trouble to fill your stockings, so you at least ought to be fully alert when you start the Christmas morning fun. That’s why she had the ingenious idea of including a coffee station among her Christmas decorating ideas for us.
Carrie writes about DIY and design at Dream Green DIY. Carrie took part in our Holiday Style Challenge, in which we send some of our favorite bloggers a mystery box of Home Depot Christmas decorating goodies, and let them amaze us with their Christmas decor styling.
Carrie’s blue and gold Christmas tree is a masterpiece, and it looks so comfortable in her teal and yellow living room. We love the way she very cleverly put her own spin on a couple of Christmas decorating ideas she found on Pinterest, too. And with freshly brewed coffee on hand, how could this be a better place for opening presents?
Read on to see how she worked her magic.
I admit it…I’m a little design obsessed. Whether for myself or for a client, chances are that you’ll find me juggling table lamps, brass animals and accessory pillows just about any day of the week. That said, I have never been all that keen on holiday styling. Call it laziness, call it whatever you like, but my strength has (sadly) never been in seasonal decor. This year though, with the support of The Home Depot, I was determined to break my reverie and indulge in all things Christmas. I am proud to say that I am an official holiday styling convert!
