Holiday Inspiration, Part 1

I realize I'm a bit behind on the holiday inspiration posts, but better late than never, right?
I've been collecting some of my favorite holiday images from around the interwebs and I'll be posting them throughout the week.
With decor like this, you don't even have to leave your bed on Christmas morning.

The combination of bunting and small trees is the perfect decor in an office.

The Santa stacking dolls are very vintage and kind of quirky.

Mantles were meant for holiday decorating and this one is even better because it includes a small plate wall.

Such a romantic, subtle set up. Let it snow indeed.

Much to my surprise, I think I like minimalist trees best.

B and I won't be spending our holidays at home so we haven't done much in the way of holiday decorating. Have you?

I could leave the stockings up all year!

..Me and my Kahuna have a tradition of only gifting via stockings.
We spend Chris'eve with the entire family at our house, trying to catch some sleep before the sun rises again. So we spend Chris'morn in bed, exchanging our own stuffed stockings instead. ;P

Hey, as long as you're posting before Christmas, you're on time! I love the first photo!

I need to decorate my office. Normally, I just hang the incoming holiday cards on the door. But this year, I plan to hang a wreath as well.

Thank goodness, my house is essentially done. If I have to hear one more person ask me: "how many more snowmen are you planning to pull out of the tub" I think I will scream.

Sam said...

Very nice selection here! I love that last tree best I think - with the white interior it looks stunning - a real statement!

A Perfect Peach said...

I love the stars at the top - they say "holiday", but you won't feel the pressure to take them down right away after xmas. my kind of decoration!

drollgirl said...

ok, that first shot is making me sing THE STARS AT NIGHT ARE BIG AND BRIGHT (clap clap clap clap), DEEP IN THE HEART OF TEXAS!

and shocker of all shockers, i like that minimal tree!!! crazy!

i did a tiny bit of decorating this weekend. my favorite part is the lights in the front room window. i could stare at them all night -- they make everything pretty and all better. :)

Chic Coles (Cole Design) said...

What great Christmas inspiration! I have not started decorating for Christmas, I leave New Orleans this week to go back up north to celebrate with the fam, and they are waiting for me and my sister to come home to start decorating! I cannot wait.

MissBliss said...

have not started decorating... may not... we will be leaving on a jet plane haha next week from Miami to Colorado... I guess I should spend any decorating energy on decorations that are warm and for me! ;)

love your pics...the santa dolls are cute.

Kellie said...

That 1st photo makes me want to crawl into bed and never leave. So comfy! We just did a tree like usual. I don't have a lot of Xmas decor so it's minimal but I like it.

The Novelista Barista said...

Those are so nice!

LENORENEVERMORE said...

Never thought Christmas tree without adornments can be simply stunning!
FAB*

Felicia|DaLipstickBandit said...

ooooh! i love the stars and the undecorated tree..how smart!

Sanity Fair said...

Gorgeous, all! I love this time of year - I'm going to declare that there should be OTHER holidays that require a lot of decoration too. I'm sure the retailers would be behind me :)

rachel said...

A little Princess said...

I love your inspiration, especially the first one. Ooh this is my first time visiting your beautiful blog and I have to say, I'm in love with your style xoxo

Julia said...

I love all the super soft images you have here! So lovely!

stephchows said...

Iva said...

I ADORE that first image! ...and the last picture is so beautiful!!

oh, hello friend. said...

Courtney said...

These are lovely photos! I really adore the "snow" tree and mini deer.

We've done quite a bit of decorating, considering it's our first Christmas away from home! haha - I guess you could say I've been planning for this Christmas for a while.

thislovelycity said...

I love them all! Especially that last tree!! xo.

Pixel Wild Child said...

Lovely photos!!! I haven't decorated anything myself... cos... I am going to Spain for Christmas and New Year! :O)

ana b. said...

Oh wow! Everything is so tasteful and gorgeous. Exactly what my Christmas decorations are NOT. For some reason, it's the one holiday where I go all out with the tacky tinsel, icicle lights, and an over-abundance of fake snow. Whoops.

The Cottage Cheese said...

I love the way that bedroom is decorated! Presents at the foot of the bed? You'd have to wake up in a good mood in a room that's as delightful as this one.

Ashley said...

That bedroom looks so peaceful and happy. I would want to snuggle up, looking at the stars forever.
