This photo from an old issue of Cottage Living inspires me. It's a similar color palate to my house and I love the natural, earthy look to the Christmas decor. I'll post some pictures of my decorations soon and see if I get anywhere close to this look.
I hope you're having fun digging out the decorations and finding ways to keep things "simple." I think simplicity might just be the biggest challenge this time of year. Just remember this season of God's gift to the world passes so quickly. Isn't it the one we should savor the most? Let's try to hold on to each moment and enjoy, rather than rushing through just to get it all done.
