pink christmas? it’s magical for little girls

Little girls will love a pink Christmas tree.  A small pink Christmas tree for their room with a neapolitan color theme could be perfect.  I found this inspirational photo above on Linens and Things has a lot of pink artificial trees. If pink is too bright for your taste try a white tree and use pink and brown decorations. Below are some holiday shopping picks I found for decorating in this week’s color palette of pinks, whites and browns. Credits: Super Nova Ornament in pink, $5.95 each and Polka Dot Sheet Set, $14-119, from Land of Nod, Read more

we’re loving RH’s faux fur for holiday gifts

Restoration Hardware has some great faux fur gifts this year…at great prices! We snagged several of these faux fur wine bags for just $9 each and faux fur scarves for just $29 each. We also love their faux fur blankets (bigger than a throw) that cover the entire bed, on sale now for $199 (originally $250). It feels so decadent to snuggle up in this soft fur. It not only makes a great holiday gift- but also a wonderful anniversary gift.

friday shopping: red stripes

Yesterday we showed you Amy Neunsinger’s room with blue walls and red beams. Today here is an opposite example of how to include color. Walls, floor etc. are all in neutral white and the rug, towels and accents are the pops of color. This way of adding pops of color is obviously easy to change when or if you grow tired of the color you selected. Painting walls, floors and ceilings in a color is more of a commitment and a little more time consuming to change but remember- paint can be changed at low cost and doesn’t have to … Read more

shopping for succulent wreaths and succulent vertical wall planters

I am most definitely going to order a succulent wreath this year for the holidays and here is a company that is taking pre-orders for November delivery- Cactus Jungle Nursery. They have 10″ wreaths for $44 and 15″ for $132. I’ve also been so interested in creating a vertical wall succulent planter. Sunset magazine has a great little article on how to do it yourself or where to buy a pre-assembled succulent garden (at, note they also have succulent wreaths and kits). If you just need the frame and want to plant it yourself, try searching … Read more
