Holiday Home Tour 2021: Vintage Modern Christmas Mudroom

A vintage modern mudroom decorated with simple neutral Christmas decor! 

It's time to start Christmas decorating!

The mudroom is one of my favorite rooms in the house and where I was most excited to decorate.  

Last year, I added a few pops of red to my Christmas decor, but this year, I kept my holiday decor completely neutral.  It's a little vintage, a little modern, a lot neutral and completely transitions from Christmas to winter.

I'm taking a break from all the Christmas talk to discuss one of my favorite design elements, TEXTURE! 

I like to keep my home fairly neutral, but neutral doesn't have to mean boring. 

If you are like me and tend to shy away from busy patterns and bold colors,  adding texture can be the key to keeping your home stylish and interesting.

2021 Gift Guide: Gift Ideas For Him

Perfect gift ideas for all the men in your life! 

I don't know about you, but every year I find it harder and harder to shop for the men in my life. 

It seems like they already have everything they want and there's nothing they really need.  This can make picking out thoughtful gifts a little tricky. 

This year, I thought about what I personally own, what I've given as gifts and what gifts we've received that others may also enjoy.  

I included items from various price points and tried to pick items that represent many different hobbies and interests.

Oversized Vintage-Inspired Sleigh Bells

Do you love the look of authentic vintage sleigh bells, but can't find them or justify the cost?  With this easy DIY, you can easily transform inexpensive bells into perfect vintage-inspired sleigh bells!

Who's up for an easy budget-friendly Christmas project? 

I've been shopping early this holiday season and snagging lots of faux winter greenery, affordable Christmas decor and gifts whenever I see something that catches my eye. 

Recently, while scoping out Christmas decor at Walmart, I came across oversized jingle bells that I had to have.   They were great as is, but I knew I could make them better with an easy vintage-inspired makeover.

The Best Realistic Winter Greenery

Deck the halls this holiday season with the best realistic garlands, picks, trees and wreaths! 

Yes, it's that time of year again. 

It's officially November, which means if you haven't already bought the new holiday decor you've been eyeing then you should definitely think about purchasing it sooner rather than later. 

Holiday decor tends to sell out early, especially this year, so it's more important than ever to shop early. Store shelves are already sparse, quantities are very limited and if you want first dibs on new inventory then you better shop early.

I already ordered more winter greenery and wanted to share my favorite winter garlands, picks, trees and wreaths in case you wanted to snag a few for yourself too!
