Christmas Inspiration

Still need some ideas to bring the holiday spirit into your home?
Come and have a look !

Instead of the customary wreath use a trapper's basket on your front door.

White dove tree ornaments combine with amaryllis, carnations, and orchids.Might they have overdone the mantel a bit? Hmmm


Juniper wreaths hung with ribbon in the windows, a florist's bucket or ornate jug to display amaryllis and other holiday plants and flowers.

Gilded starfish and sand dollars for a nautical wreath.


Those small lanterns on the mantel look lovely.


In an all white room gold looks stunning.

Simple Scandinavian-style wreath of boxwood and dried wheat hangs above a 19th-century painted-wood bench.

A handful of sprigs of wheat in two glass jars flanking a tray with candles. Easy!

This is a 70-year-old clam-shucking table, once used in an Atlantic City seafood restaurant. Dried wheat for the wreath.

Bring the holiday feeling into your bedroom by hanging stockings in different colors and textures at the foot of the bed. Or hang stars made of wheat in the windows.

Add splashes of green and white to every room. Details can be as simple as a wreath hung with striped ribbon.

An Advent calendar made from flash cards, paper clips, and ribbons is strung in a window.

A fragrant wreath made with fresh pine, cedar, hydrangea, and green apples.The contrast between the wreath and the blue door is gorgeous!

I hope these images have inspired you. Let me know which one you like!
