I grew up on a farm. Had animals around me all the time. I'm a lover of mountains and nature. My ideal method of wasting time is sitting at one of my favourite rocky retreats and listen to the river trickle by and listen to the branches breaking off in the bush and trying to guess which animal is near by.
So the theme I have picked is rustic. I really do love the Americana rustic. The flag pillows. The old pictures on the walls. The wrought iron pieces. The home made quilted blankets and pillows. I love it all. This is the theme I have chosen. A more natural warm cozy type of feel. I love a room full of things to look at, touch and feel. I love a home that smells good like cinnamon and nutmeg that when you walk in the front door you can take a big whiff in and know you're going to stay for a long time and enjoy the visit.
So I have started my Christmas decorating with this theme in mind. It's not a fast process but hopefully it'll turn out well in the end. This photo is not of my family room in particular but hopefully one day in the future it won't look too different.
So as we approach the holiday season I wish all my readers joy as they set up their lovely inviting homes for this joyous occasion.
PS: Thank goodness milk glass can blend in with this theme quite well!!
