I can't believe that it is almost Christmas! Maybe our holidays run together like our temperatures here in Kansas. There isn't much of a transition, we go straight from one to the next. You would think we would be used to it on both sides (weather and the retail) but we never are.
One thing I do love is watching the trends and following the hot colors that transition from season to season. We have watched the gold accents come on huge and lots of additions of blues. TONS of navy!! One of the best things about bringing the gold in, is it allows you so much more flexibility with your decorating. Alls metals together is huge this season. Just because you have pulled out your gold accessories, doesn't mean you have to put away your silver. Just get some champagne colored, or bronze to connect the two.
One of my favorite things I love to do is a create a challenge for myself to purchase accessories that can be used year round and not need to be put away at the end of the season. Just changed! Mercury glass is perfect for that and now you can find in so many colors. We have lots of silver, gold and copper which are perfect to link your metals. Plus, they can be used all year round as shown above. If I just took those blue out and replaced with something red it changes the entire feel of it.
Tomorrow I am starting to work on this years CASA home and can't wait!! It is a gorgeous home that Chris and I will get to put our touch on. Will try and share as soon as I can.
PS Mark down our holiday open house, it will be Saturday November 21 and Sunday 22 from 10-5pm.
