My 12 year old heart longs for that over the top Christmas quality in decorations. And I’m sure that goes for a whole lot of you too. It’s the time of year, where you can’t have enough low lights creating cozy vignettes that make you want to snuggle all day long. As such, I thought I treat you with some inspiring images from beautiful Christmas decorations where candles and fairy lights, wreaths and stars brighten a home and fill our hearts with magic.
One thing is for sure. When it comes to Christmas spirit, it’s all about the lights with their soft glow. If you don’t lit your candles on a regular basis, then this is the time to take some action and lit them all up to feel the warmth. Candlelight creates the gentle glow, creating some of the softest shadows, making everything look more beautiful. Of course, you can always top that with some fairy lights on a garland that you could place on a fireplace mantel or even stuff some inside your lanterns. Creating a clutter of lit lanterns by the entryway is surely a great idea for it creates a sense of a real warm welcome to your guests. All the while, wreaths add on their own design value to any space. Most of them have a very organic vibe to them and I think the fact that a wreath symbolizes growth and everlasting life due its circular shape, makes it a meaningful decor piece to have all year long.
Another wonderful idea is to create a wall hanging using fairy lights, Christmas cards and a few snowflakes (or pine cones for that matter) in between. I totally fell in love with this idea below… It’s so simple yet it has such an impact.
Isn’t this the most wonderful time of the year? I think it is, therefore it’s understandable to go a bit overdose on this spirit…
