all tied up with a pretty blue bow
It’s the Christmas season! And it’s time for our Coastal Home Christmas tour. There’s just something about the twinkle lights this time of year that makes being at home feel magical. For this year’s decor, the plan was to keep a really neutral palette. To coordinate with our other home decor, it felt necessary to add some blue. So, I grabbed some pretty dusty blue ribbon from Amazon and carried it throughout our home. This is such an easy way to make all your decor for Christmas feel cohesive. You’ll notice I used this from our entry, to our dining room, even our tree! I love how it creates a sense of flow.
My take on coastal Christmas decor is not a whole lot different than my everyday coastal decor. I love to use texture and natural materials. To make it all feel festive, adding a little glitz is the perfect formula for a casual and serene coastal Christmas. By using a lot of gold vintage bells and sparkly mercury ornaments alongside natural-toned woods, rattan, pampas and jute, it’s the perfect balance of organic and glitz! You can see this in some of the spaces shown above and here’s a few more.
keep it simple
Creating spaces that feel casual enough to live in is an important part of my designs. To achieve this, relying on simplicity is key. Choosing pieces thoughtfully so that they make an impact, but don’t feel overdone is my favorite trick to achieve the casual and serene look that is life on the coast. You can see this with our Christmas decor as well.
