This year particularly we have been into cozy snuggling at home and warm nights by the fire.
It goes without saying that this year has been pretty tumultuous for many Americans and so the love and joy of the holiday season means more to us than ever before.
While in years past I have been a die-hard lover of color... I mean, I have a bright pink sofa and baby blue chairs in my living room... Lately I have been jonesing for the cool white tones of a winter cabin.
This picture Amber Lewis put up on her instagram yesterday nearly killed me!
So while I am not going to redo my whole living room... I am going to incorporate some of this serenity into my little family room den. Shayna at @ruffledsnob has some great inspiration photos of her lovely home.
Here are some other images that inspired us and some items from our Christmas wish list to bring the calm in this year of chaos.
Give us all the eucalyptus and all the beautiful silver tip trees. Our beautiful white tree that has lasted our little family through more Christmas' then my youngest son has been alive... is on its last legs this year and my husband and I will be getting a new tree during some after-christmasy sales. So far I have my eye on this one.
Pop that beautiful silver tip into one of these amazing copper tree collars and voila... Perfection.
Layer around some gorgeous knitted throws and done.
Here is to being thankful that we have warm and cozy nests to feather, and to remembering those who don't at this time of year. Next week we will have up our traditional charity list so keep your eyes peeled. This year more than ever, giving feels good.
