The New Year brings lot´s of new projects with it. I planned on changing some little corners around the house plus we want to redecorate Emilia´s nursery to make a shared girls room out of it. Since we are having two girls close in age we decided to give them the big room and put them together.
We recently painted a wall in our living room in the most gorgeous rich caramel color and I love it even more now. I can confidently say that our living room is done after about 1 1/2 years of making small changes. Going to reveal it in the next week (hopefully).
So for our next project I have been gathering ideas and already ordered some wallpaper and small home decoration like pillows and blankets and curtains to get a little closer and coordinate the colors I want to have. Also every time I go around with a folding rule in my hand my husband has a mild panic attack cause he is afraid of what else I am planning to change (anyone else´s too!!).
H&M Home has become a stop shop over the years not only for seasonal decor but also for all kinds of decor, pillows and planters for example. We don´t have a store nearby so I have to order what I like but that´s not a problem at all. Never had shipping issues and the breakable pieces are usually packed really safe.
I finally came around to shot a close up of my tree. To be honest I have done many trees the last few years but this years tree might be my absolute favorite – or am I saying this every year!!!
The color concept for our Christmas tree is as simple and classic but as chic and beautiful as possible. It is Red and Green – THE original Christmas colors in my opinion.
I always start by adding the plain ornaments to the tree and go from there. For this year´s concoction I went with all red and green ornaments. After that I added tartan print bows and glittery poinsettias in green and red. The poinsettias might be my favorite feature of the tree.
Afterwards I go and get our special ornaments like the pickle or the Mickey bubble and place them all over tree. The last thing I add are the lights. They are just clip on and super easy to put on.
I also got some fun things like the candy canes and candies so Emilia can also grab some things from the tree. We also started a new tradition this year. I am letting her pick one new ornament every year (going to write the year onto it) and then place it somewhere on the tree. This will be so much fun and when she is old enough and moving out she can start decorating her Christmas tree with all the cute ornaments she collected over the years.
She was very interested the first two or three days and always wanted to grab some ornaments but now she only wants to turn on the lights of the tree and look at it.
I couldn´t feel more joy than looking at Emilia´s little pink Christmas tree. These are the things I have been waiting to experience with my daughter and it is so fun.
To be honest I did not want to get her a tree this year since I thought she would be too young to understand but you can clearly see how much she loves it and she definitely knows that it´s her because she calls our big tree Mama´s tree.
A pink tree was never on my radar but in my opinion it turned out perfect. The pink, white and clear ornaments are the cutest and the bows and poinsettias round-up the whole theme. I went with a whimsical fairy swan and glitter theme and even my husband thinks it is beautiful.
He has to look at all the ornaments with Emilia every night and I just stand in the door and watch and it is the cutest. I have a good feeling that this Christmas could be even better than the last one.
welcome to one of my rare Saturday posts but since I got so much Fall things done this week I also wanted to share my FAll decor with you. I finally came around to get everything decorated how I wanted it to be and I have to say every year it lools a little better than the year before.
First of all I have to admit I love to decorate with pumpkins. They are my favorite Fall sign and there are plenty of them in our home this season. Most of these extraordinary pieces are from TKMaxx. My husband always says it is the worst shop of shops because it is stuffed with “junk” but I love it. You can find the greatest most beautiful pieces at TK Maxx. Pieces that not everybody has.
For the first time ever I got a skull and in my opinion it is adorable. Also the little bats I added onto the mirror of our entryway are right up my alley. It makes it a little more Halloween appropriate and I just love that.
Candles are another great way to decorate, add color, a theme and of course a great smell into your home. I love all things Yankee and Village candle. The big jars with all the adorable names and pictures on the front (such a sucker for cute packaging over here).
Another thing I always do is to change the cushion covers. I think it adds extra festivity to the room and also a splash of color.
Most of our decor is from amazon and TK Maxx. If you are shopping TK Maxx make sure to visit soon cause the good stuff is always selling out fast.
Are you a decor lover or do you maintain your year round decor and just add a Christmas tree for example. I went with an all orange decor theme for our living room but a neutral Fall decor would be gorgeous as well and not as notably.
