It was a weekend full of activity for us and I bet yours was too! I managed to take a few more images of our home in between the busyness of the seasonal activities and obligations. Nester is hosting her annual party today so the timing is perfect to share a few more snapshots from our abode.

For those who visit, you know my decorating style is light and bright, clean and simple. This year I spent much less time on the holiday decorating process because when it starts to feel more tedious instead of joyful, that’s when it’s time to pull back and focus instead on the feelings that come from enjoying the moments of the season rather than the pressure to put on a big show.

In December, I love a mix of natural greenery and sparkle, so I picked up a few little trees and a wreath at my local nursery and Trader Joes which you’ll see scattered about. The rest of the embellishments are just baubles and trinkets pulled from the bins of Christmas favorites.

The palette this year is silver, gold, and verdant green. Evergreen branches and pale poinsettias are the seasonal botanicals I’ve brought indoors and both are easily discarded and swept up when the season is over in a few short weeks.
