Easy + Innovative Christmas ideas

I should first let you know that I've been listening to a Christmas-only radio station (every time I drive) since Thanksgiving night. That is how seriously important Christmas is to me. But I won't bore you telling you the deep down reasons of my love for Christmas instead there are these incredibly fun and innovative ways to decorate.

If you have charcoal wall drawing a Christmas-tree silhouette would be so fun.

Doesn't this wreath evoke everything that Christmas represents? family, memories, gifts and hopefully snow.

Love this little tree in the background with only a few hidden balls.

How about this cuteness with everything handmade. A very fun way to create those treasured precious moments with your family, if you decide to make the ornaments yourselves. If not, West Elm has a series of handmade ornaments very similar to these ones.

A mid century Parisian flat

At first glance I thought this apartment was located in Scandinavia due to the owners' selection of sleek mid-century Scandinavian furniture but of course after reading about it and then noticing those perfect little details, such as the herringbone floors, impeccable gorgeous doors and the stunning spiral staircase, its attention-to-detail location was revealed: Paris. Although this apartment is not the typical opulent Parisian flat that we're all so used to, I love the youthfulness and the abundance of light. It's a different take on Parisian decor style. You see what I mean that I love a home that reveals itself slowly?

Remodeling Guidelines to Re-Green Your Interior Design

Remodeling Guidelines to Re-Green Your Interior Design

Last week, at its annual conference in New Orleans, the American Society of Interior Designers released REGREEN, its set of guidelines for home remodeling with a shade of green.
In contrast with LEED, which scores and certifies green buildings, REGREEN is a set of guidelines, designed to give homeowners and interior design and buildings professionals the background and resources to evaluate green products and energy systems in the systems-based context of how an entire home operates.



As part of the (hooray for tree-free), the guidelines are accompanied by 10 case studies covering different project types -- kitchen remodel, bathroom remodel, finished basement remodel, gut rehab, etc. -- and is chock-full of home remodeling and interior design ideas, all with a green point of view.
The guidelines are just that -- guidelines -- rather than a script to be followed, which is closer to LEED's approach, and that has both drawbacks and benefits. Doing it right will require getting everybody -- including interior designers, contractors, sub-contractors and homeowners -- all on the same page, and the systems-based approach will require that everything work well together; executing a green home remodel won't be as easy as slapping in some bamboo cabinets and plugging in an Energy Star fridge. But if you're going to do it, you might as well do it well, right?

Christmas, the Miles Redd way

While looking for images through my files for my earlier post I remembered this house that was designed by the glamorous Miles Redd. This house was featured in last year's December issue of Elle Decor and I love that its holiday decor is grand and festive yet easy to execute.

Christmas eye candy







As I mentioned before we're having a tree-less Christmas this year so I'm searching high and low for inspiration of little vignettes that can be easily created around the house. I'm sure many people choose to do this when they have little children running around the house. I hope these images get you inspired to have a beautiful Christmas even when not having a Christmas tree. Enjoy
