holiday decor

It's that time again!  The holidays are officially here and my mind is quickly turning to festive decor.  I love the simplicity and pop of unexpected color this wreath brings, made by the ever creative folks from Real Simple.

This sweet little "kissing ball" was created by Martha Stewart, of course.

I'm thinking of keeping things simple this year and a little tree like this seems doable.

Some other lovely images that have me inspired...

This gorgeous home is so perfectly decorated it's making me miss New England in the winter!

6 days to go!

I cannot believe Thanksgiving is next week.  Time is flying!  We'll be spending Thanksgiving with my cousin at his wonderful girlfriend's home, along with their great friends.  I'm excited to have our first Aspen Thanksgiving after years of celebrating with friends in Manhattan.  The best part is that we'll spend the morning hitting the slopes for opening day!

If we were hosting dinner I would definitely be planning a table setting in the direction of these beautiful modern and simple designs.  I'll have to save these images away for next year.

I love how the gorgeous gold flatware really pops here!

rejoice: we have a coffee table!

I love brass and glass coffee tables and have been on the hunt for the perfect one for the last several months.   Tables like these are classic and work with so many different styles.  I can see having one for years.

I especially love tiered tables which can hold books and magazines on the lower shelf.

After an exhausting search I finally came across a gorgeous table which arrived today!  The living room is a little on the narrow side so it was a bit of a challenge to find one in the right scale for the room.  Not only am I thrilled with the details but it's amazing to be able to put my feet up again!
