Now, I am back in the swing of things and have not only decked the halls actually found a new look for our tree this year. It is much more simple then years past but I was inspired by ornaments that I found at Target. I will share those this afternoon, until then here are some images that are inspiring me to look at inexpensive ornaments in a new light. I still have our office to decorate for the holidays and you just might see a take on a few of these images.
I am a huge fan of using colors tone on tone to create texture. Although these ornaments are inexpensive the look that you get has such impact.
I also love the pops of holiday decor, the jingle bell wreath around the head of the bust, and the pink toned wrapped packages at the end with the raspberry colored glass mixed in.
I LOVE this. It is so simple but the books being covered in white, the neutral tones, and the drama of the red ornamants hanging above it all. So simple, and yet here it is fabulous.
Sometimes the clear glass ornaments are my favorite. The light plays off of them, and you can add them in to fill up a tree or in this case create a chandelier. We are using these for a soiree this week where we are creating a champagne bubble lounge. Can't wait!
After seeing this I may have to use this in our Master Bedroom this year as a take off a snow globe. I love the simplicity and the fact that you can create a story in each ornament.

Not really unique, but once again it does show you how focusing in one a color or two (in this case) can make inexpensive decor feel very well done. I love the mix of white vessels where the ornaments pick up on the color of the garland and the wreaths.

Stay tuned for pictures of the start of our holiday decor, and a few whimsical ideas for wreaths for both indoors and outdoors.
Deck the halls - the season has begun!
