Perhaps this is heresy for a decorator to admit, but I like the minimalist approach to holiday decor. Maybe it’s because my house is already small and stuffed with meaningful treasures. Maybe it’s because so many holiday decorations at this time of the year are busy and bold, in colors that clash with everything else in the house.
Whatever the reason, I do like to let greenery star instead of fussy decorations.
This is the first year with a new dining room chandelier, and I couldn’t resist seeing how it could be dressed for the holiday! Here it is, “before.”
It’s got a little bit of glam. Love the clean lines!
They make a great nest, though, for greens!
White pine, aromatic cedar and seeded eucalyptus are threaded through in what I hope is an artful arrangement (Plain-Speaking Daughter considers any pretense to artfulness as artifice! So perhaps I’ll just say an unconstructed arrangement…)
