Our Holiday Decor

Our house has gradually been getting more and more festive.  Think there is only one more project in my back pocket, until I can count our decorations as done!  Last year we had only been in our house for a couple months and Christmas quickly came upon us, but this year was so much fun to put thought and energy into making our home festive and merry.  Our mid-century modern furniture mixes perfectly with our vintage bulbs and decorations that were hand-me-downs from my grandma, aka actually mid century.  I DIYed the modern wreaths below and added some hand-crafted wood beads to balance the glitter with a little scandinavian understatemnt.  What do you think?  What's your favorite part of your house to decorate?  Despite what these photos show, mine is the outside.

Holiday Moments from our House

Our Christmas game was at about 75% this year, as it's been a whirlwind of moving, unpacking, and still trying to fill our significantly larger home with non-holiday things.  We brought in plenty of holiday cheer though.  Here are a few moments from our Christmasy home.
