Do you have pictures of your kids with Santa from years past? Where do you keep them? These holiday portraits are special during this time of year, but you might not necessarily want to display them year round. Do you stick them in a scrapbook? Or do you have a system for revisiting them during the holiday season?
Everyone has go-to holiday colors. Some go for the classic red-and-green combo, but I think non-traditional holiday decor feels modern and fresh (just ask my black Christmas tree). These shapshots from homes decorated for the holidays are black, white and chic all over, following simple Scandinavian-inspired design principles. And it's easy to replicate the look in any home.
I'm very picky when it comes to patterns and artwork (and, let's be honest, lots of other stuff), but I love a good geometric design. Now that it's time to look for calendars for the new year, I've pulled together a few shapely options.
We've covered how to create a gallery wall on a budget but, even after buying all your frames, finding affordable art to put in them can be a challenge. This idea comes from Rue magazine and it's perfect as a placeholder (until you invest in pieces you love) or even as a permanent installation: use magazine tears!
It's certainly not a new idea; in fact, I've seen it dubbed "the 21st Century baby book." But perhaps precisely because it has become so popular to take monthly (or even weekly!) photos of your child, there are lots of inspiring ideas out there. I've rounded up some of my favorites.
