I know it’s still a little early to get out the Christmas decorations. (Or is it?? I saw an entire neighborhood decorated on my way home last night. . . ) But, I do like to start prepping now by studying some of my favorite holiday homes and making mental notes of new ideas I want to include in our decor. These are three of my current favorites, chosen for their simple, classic and cozy approach to Christmas.
Details to note: A strong red, white and blue mix throughout; touches of boxwood in garlands, wreaths and topiaries; pattern on pattern; classic Christmas decor (i.e., nutcrackers and striped ribbon) add a touch of nostalgia.
Details to note: Lush magnolia garland; plaid on plaid; twinkling lights and bare trees (that’s allowed!); adding oranges to my grocery list.

Details to note: A single wreath and simple topiaries make for a classic porch; layers of greenery for full garlands (mix faux with real); wreaths above mirrors; a traditional tree always works.
