Making Our Home a Winter Wonderland | Holiday Decor
The Christmas countdown is ON! We are stuffing stockings and (stressfully) attempting to get gifts for everyone on our list. I am especially late to shopping this year, but I was on time with my holiday decor! My favorite part about this season is the feeling of Christmas. The dressed up tree. The twinkling lights. The hot cocoa. The holiday music playing in the house. The garland over the mantle. The gingerbread cookies on the counter. It feels like happiness, and to me, it’s the best gift in the world.
This year has been especially sweet, since Ev is now big enough to really enjoy the holiday. We even turned his playroom into a winter wonderland, and he is IN LOVE with it! He has his own mini tree, string lights, an advent calendar and festive pillows.
I wanted our home to have a boho-Christmas vibe (is that even a term)?! LOL. So I kept the vibes neutral with hints of gold and silver and a lot of twinkle lights. I also love adding texture with these knit stockings and these fuzzy pillows to make it feel ohhhh so cozy. I found so many of my favorite pieces at West Elm, CB2, Target and Anthropologie. Plus, I worked alongside local floral shop Flower Firm LA, who helped me create all of the garlands and made my vision of a wreath wall come to life!
This was our first year getting a flocked tree and I have to say — I’m obsessed! It reminds me of snowy winters back home in Michigan. Since we won’t be waking up to a white Christmas here in cali-land, the tree makes everything feel a whole lot cozier.
Here’s a peak at our indoor winter wonderland…
