I was scrolling through Instagram earlier and saw a countdown of days until Christmas. My heart skipped a beat. It’s really not too far off and there is so much to do still. This year I want to get a head start on decorating so that we can sit back, relax, and enjoy the season! First stop is the foyer. Cue the holiday music please… “We’re walkin’ in a Coastal Christmasland“.
Our area is lucky if it sees any snow until late January or February, so in the meantime, give me starfish, sand and seaglass! Kirklands sent me a surprise box of coastal goodies from their Nautical Noel collection and gave me a challenge to create something lovely. The foyer is now all dressed up in beachy aqua blues, warm glowing golds, and soft snowy whites.
This cute Santa Claws Pillow adds a bit of whimsy to an otherwise elegant space and reminds us to not take ourselves too seriously. 😉
The wood oars that have been displayed in the kids playroom are now resting along the stairs, beckoning someone to take them boating.
This glass and rope lantern is one of my favorite accessories. We have used it all over the house, inside and out, spring, summer, fall and now as winter approaches.
Fresh garland isn’t quite yet available here, so the next best thing is to bring out the artificial garland. Which is probably good, because picking pine needles out of the shag carpet is not fun. The garland is adorned with shimmery aqua ombre ribbon, starfish, pinecones, and beautiful rope wrapped blue glass ornaments. I love them so much, I placed them everywhere!
A quaint Seas and Greetings Art welcomes friends and family as they enter.
A few of my girlfriends are also decking their halls with Christmas goodies from Kirklands this week. Check out their beautiful homes!
Monday: Cassie, Hi Sugarplum!
