While I haven’t yet ordered Christmas cards or considered whether it’ll be a natural or everlasting tree this year, I have already been pinning holiday themed inspiration and have begun holiday crafting. White French Country Christmas Cottage Decorating Inspiration shares lovely moments of quiet, charming simplicity.

In this way, I don’t wake up to discover all at once that December is upon us. (Of course, a blog like this will sure ’nuff hold you accountable too.)
So when I consider an authentic farmhouse in France or a sweet cottage like this with its quiet, rustic, pastels and French Country style, I’m looking for clues.

How do the colors work together?

In what sense does it hold my interest?
Are there repetitive design elements shining through?
Is there anything surprising to behold?
What stories does it tell?
What details might I emulate in my own holiday decor?

Since procuring a French Country cottage in the Spanish countryside seems a tad out of reach at the moment, I’m thinking edible cottage…
I’m such a fan of artists and bakers who create charming creations like those since mine are often leaning, wonky, wobbly, ghetto shacks held together with royal icing and prayers!!!
