Designer Diaries: Last Christmas in our First Home

The new house isn’t going to be celebrating Christmas with us quite yet. We’ve made some really wonderful progress on the renovation but it’s been nice to slow down a little bit since Thanksgiving and spend time in our current home. As you’ve maybe seen in the last few weeks and in previous years on social media, I love to decorate trees and homes for the holidays. Today I’m sharing how our first home gets decorated for the season. I can’t wait until next year when I’ll get to share all about the new house’s Christmas decor.

I’ve loved decorating this house over the years but I’m also incredibly excited to come up with fresh ideas for holiday decor in the new house. No matter how festive or ordinary your home is this season, I wish you a joyful and beautiful Christmas.
