Green White Gold Christmas Decorating: Nordic & Natural Now

And just in case the thought occurs: but Michele, I use silvery tones, not gold or brass in our home…no worries. Think of the gold from candlelight or warm twinkly lights. Further, mix those metals and live on the wild side. There are no rules, doncha know.

Simplicity & Creativity When Your Space is On the Cozy Side

You’ll notice this is not one of those fantasy Christmas decor tours where more is more, and sparkly bling von bling teleports you to a Vegas disco in a not so natural way.

ASIDE: Do you ever muse, “Girl, my place is way too small to look as pretty as the spaces on Pinterest!” Well, here’s a glance back at a 319 square foot Boston condo Nate Berkus transformed. Please ignore the audience’s overly dramatic outbursts…if you were ever at an Oprah taping years ago as I was, you understand the director encouraged the obnoxiousness, 🙂

The Emotional Impact of Green

What is it about cool green hues–especially for decorating at Christmas–that evokes feelings of well being and warmth?

Green obviously reflects the beauty and elegant simplicity of the natural world. But it is also a deeply tranquil color associated with health and good fortune.

Doesn’t it make sense that GREEN would be having a serious moment now that we are very much health-conscious and doing what we can to boost our immunity?

For me personally, green takes on star status during the holidays because of how it is symbolic of new life.

Green reminds us of that which is enduring, everlasting, and sometimes even flourishing in the dead of winter.

    So I was somewhat relieved to read that you have not yet decorated for Christmas, because if you had I’d be feeling highly inadequate right now! I can barely even begin to give a thought to Christmas until after I get myself well past Thanksgiving. All good intentions aside, I have never been this far ahead of the game. Everything looks absolutely stunning, so pure, clean and welcoming. I also love your gift suggestions and will certainly be ordering that heart pendant. LOVE IT! Happy holidays to you.

      Thanks for playing along, creative dynamo friend! There are two little boughs on the fireplace mantel, and that is it! I hope to make some progress today. 🙂

    Well, my friend, the totes are up from our crawl space (no basement) but that is it. They now reside in the office. Baby steps. Lol I’m waiting for a good windstorm to gather boughs for my outdoor planters and mantel. Does it bother you as it does me, that so many spell it mantle?
    I’m late to read, as I was out shopping today. I’ve put quite a dent in my shopping list, including a gift for myself. Why not? I deserve it. I bought a top notch All Clad induction fry pan. I’ve always wanted a quality frypan. With a 30% discount, it was bound to come home. Fried eggs for breakfast, anyone?

      Are we identical twins? I think we are. And you, my twin, are a step ahead. I didn’t get the totes up from the basement today because I started the day shopping and got overwhelmed. Too overwhelmed to do more this afternoon! That’s a great gift since it keeps giving. I’ll have a couple eggs, but skip the yolks for your sister. 🙂
