Christmas has finally arrived here at Heaven's Walk.
I usually wait until the first week or so of December before pulling out multiple totes of holiday decor.
This year, it was much easier and I didn't even use half of what I dug through in those containers.
Note to self: Sell or donate all red and green Christmas decorations.
I was greatly influenced and inspired by the soft, romantic, rustic look of a shabby chic Christmas and wanted to keep things very simple.
I don't handle clutter well.
Using only decor in shades of pink, white, teal, and gold made the task a breeze.
A small faux tree was plunked in a vintage blue enamel bucket and found it's place on the wicker table in the corner of the living room.
I tucked real white pine tassels here and there which resulted in it looking very lifelike.
Glittered ornaments dangle among sparkling crystal snowflakes all tied on with shabby chic linen scraps,
and a large glass snowflake was the topper.
Vintage ornaments from my childhood were casually tossed onto the Florentine tray on the coffee table.
I entwined crystal beaded garland with faux cedar boughs and draped it over the fireplace mantel, tucking in a mercury glass candlestick and flocked pine cones. A simple knit stocking was hung with care opposite an oversize wooden rosary I made.
I tied a handful of faux cedar branches together with some turquoise linen and laid in it on the small planked table next to my love seat,
The master bath was also kept very simple with a tiny flocked fir tree wearing a scarf of pink voile.
A sprig of pine snuggles with a rose bloom,
and some pink dried roses hang above the little boho candle holder.
The rug was a beautiful gift from the sweet Carol at Our Sears Kit Home.
Christmas at Heaven's Walk.
Simple, serene, romantic, and gently tousled.
[The Husband was happy to cross a couple of tasks off his "honey-do" list today,
leaving his wife very happy.
I'll share them with you next week.
Clue: Bright and blingy!]
