1. I was very selective in what I put out this year. It was a good opportunity to go through my boxes of decorations and clean them out! Instead of lots of little knick-knacks, I primarily used greenery, ornaments and a few holiday signs/artwork.
2. I kept to a very simple color palette of blues, greens, grays, and whites. What? No red? Could I do it? I've always used a lot of red in the past. I've got some red outside and in a few little spots ... but for the most part, I am really enjoying the softer, soothing colors. This month is crazy enough as it is, right?
As you'll see below ... Boxwood is my friend! I just love it's bright green color and part of me would love to just keep it up all year round.
I like to swap out the artwork above my fireplace with this mirror and boxwood garland.
Look! Some red! I just love this nostalgic little sign, so I couldn't resist.
And of course there's some red on the Gingerbread house Kyle and Braden made!
What's your decorating style ... do you go all out or do you like to keep things simple?
