When we moved in to our house 5 years ago, I was all about red and gold at Christmas time. It got its start with these velvet poinsettias that I loved. They, in turn, set the tone for all the rooms, since the house is very open.
Red and gold . . . everywhere.
Red and gold organza ribbons cascading down the tree. Red and gold balls on the tree. Red poinsettias on the wreaths. Red and gold, red and gold, red and gold.
It was beautiful. But this year I was so ready for a change.
In November I walked by a tree all decorated in . . . warm cocoa browns, golds, taupes, coppers, and little shots of an aged lime green. Oh, my. It was all over.
Yes, please, I'll take a big armful of these new colors.
I'm not sure what I was thinking because now the now the tree and wreaths must all be redone to work with the new ornaments!
No, I'm never one to leave well enough alone! But it does get me all giddy to think of new colors and new looks and new possibilities!
More pics to come of how things come together. I just love seeing how others decorate their homes for Christmas; don't you?!
