Alright, today is something new which I am so excited to roll out. Let’s talk home decor, traditional Christmas colors or neutral? This space on the internet for me is all about connecting with others, sharing my home and ideas, but also getting to talk home decor with people who get my obsession. Even if your home is full-on country chic, or modern simplicity. We can all relate to the love of decorating, of making our house into a home.
So today I am breaking down a new aspect of my blog, having this become a place to talk all homes. Not just mine, but yours, yes you. The one right there. Hi you! I see you and I am excited to start talking to you! On my social media I asked a question about Christmas decorating color preference. But first let me back up a little and explain the back story. I explained in my Christmas home tour, Dale (my husband and legally obligated bestie) insists on the traditional Christmas colors of red and green. Even down to colored lights on the tree and outside. This is non-negotiable to him, who for the rest of the year throws up his hands and gives me full decorating freedom. But don’t mess with this mans Christmas!
I on the other hand love the simplicity and beauty of neutral colors. White lights are so dreamy and look like fairies literally floating around in my home, sharing the glowing magic with us. Now that I am a decorating lover I also adore adding some newer elements and colors. Grays and blue, which should surprise no one if you are a frequent reader of this blog since this is the main colors to my home year round. It helps transition my home into this season without having to go and get new everything if I incorporate a few of those cooler tones into my Christmas decorations.
Our home is a mainly traditional feel for this season. With pops of gray and a smidgen of blue. I justify it to Dale by saving us money, which he is all about.
I also added some cleaner and lighter colors to my decor this year. Putting in a few additions of the so pretty and clean neutral look.
My fireplace mantel I squeezed in some blue, which I again claimed was to make the large wall decor work with the rest of the room. Otherwise making or purchasing a new one would have to happen. I know this is as much as I can possibly get Dale to concede. He would have a checkered green sofa with red pillows all over. He is Mr. Traditional with Christmas decorating. Since he does not make these requests for much else in our home I acquiesce to him, but this is his one veto! He pulled the Christmas traditional decor card out, I have received it and put it to action. He gets one! Buahaha!!!!
Now comes the fun part for me and why I am bringing this up here, because I want to
win this argument hear what you all have to say! So let’s talk home decor, traditional Christmas colors or neutral? Seriously, I am wondering what you all think? How do you decorate your home? Have you ever changed it up, switched teams? Maybe you decorate in bright turquoise, if so can I come and visit because I lurve turquoise?! This blog is mine, about my home but it has always been my goal to have it become a place to celebrate all homes, and get to know you. So let’s get to chatting, this is just us having some coffee talk. Be sure to check back because I will be engaging with you all and responding to what you have to say. Let’s do this!
I would love to see your home decorating too, if you have social media post a picture of your home in all it’s Christmas glory and tag me in it or use the hashtag #letstalkhomedecor to let me be nosy and see your home!
