Yep, we’re feeling just this adventurous. Kids… don’t try this at home.

Now that Thanksgiving has come and gone, it’s time to take those holiday boxes out of storage and dress-up the house. Every holiday season is the same. Ornaments and decorations collected over the years and displayed in the same way. And while we agree that family tradition and the ever-impressive red and green or blue and silver  are stunning, this holiday season we’re feeling adventurous.

The beauty of decorating for the holidays is that it isn’t permanent, so you can be creative and try new things without costly investments in design. You can start with what you’ve already got, or go in a completely new direction. There are so many styles to choose from. Rustic. Simple. Elaborate. Elegant. Traditional. Contemporary. Anything your heart desires. It can be overwhelming, but have no fear, we’ve put together a pin board to help you get going.

A wonderful and fun way to add to your seasonal decorations is to swap out your everyday artwork in place of seasonal pieces. Vintage prints, DIY crafts, and our personal favorite, all those holiday photos from years gone by, add endless joy to your home for the few weeks they’re on display.
