Punched Up Pink For An Elegant Holiday Look

It's not even Thanksgiving yet, but today is the 25th....so that means that Christmas is just a month away! We are going to have a very quiet Thanksgiving in our household, and I want the chance to relax with the family...so we decided to do up our holiday decor this past weekend.

I have been collecting Christmas pieces for as long as I can remember in my adult life and dragged out the boxes of goodies with my theme in mind. Less is more, whites with natural greens, a bit of shabby chic and my French antiques.

Today I'm sharing a few shots from the living room, and will share more of the home bedecking in future posts this week.

An antique beaded light dome turned upside down and filled with pretty vintage Christmas balls.

The fresh cut Frasier Fir tree is free of ornaments this year and on a table to keep it puppy friendly.

Old vintage French fabric made into a Christmas stocking by my friend Maria at Dreamy Whites.

Pillow that I designed some years ago with an applique Christmas tree on vintage lace.

I love to juxtapose elegant furnishings along with shabby pieces, like this old painted pink bench that I've had for a long time.

Fireplace mantel decorating ideas for a holiday mantel come easy. Fresh greens, simple touches...edit, edit and nothing over the top.

Have a great week...I hope to squeeze another post or two in before Thanksgiving to inspire.
