Christmas in a different house can be really fun!
Notice many of the same items that I had from last year
but how they are incorporated in a different space.

So nice to have a little fire!

Same tree.

A little bit of lighting.

Did you notice the same quilt and the mirror with the garland?
(Fabric and Natural Elements)

Little wreaths on the lamps.

Merry Christmas!

Just a Little Christmas to share.

This was some of our Christmas decorations last year.

Notice, many of the principles that we talk about
also work well when decorating for Christmas.

Natural Elements
Color and Pattern

It all creates a cozy comfortable space to live in!

In my next post I will share some of the Christmas decor of this year.

This is the third post on how fabric can really soften up a space!


Look at what a difference the curtains made! 
 It dresses up the window and softens the hard lines of the window.


Notice how the touches of blue are brought around
the room with the curtains, the pillow and the
throw blanket on the end of the bed.

Now the room looks finished and it feels so inviting.

Here is the same shot--- but look what a little red pillow adds!
The rug has some red in it as well as some little bits
 in the pillow and the bird prints.

I just wanted to show you a little different look.

Wow--- fabric really does make your world more comfortable!!
