christmas decorating

I have a real problem when it comes to Christmas decorations - particularly stockings. I love them and want new ones every year! When we pull out our Christmas decorations, my husband is always having to remind me that ours are cute and I don't need new ones. But come on! Look at these! I've paired four different styles together to get you inspired for this upcoming season - it's the most wonderful time of the year for decor lovers! I even came up with extra-cheesy taglines for each style. You're welcome.



I think we all know that blue / indigo is a hot trend right now so when I saw these fun indigo stockings from Chairish, I fell hard. How cool are these? I love them because they look like a great accompaniment to go along with your every-day home decor, if you have that boho, trendy vibe going on. And if you do, I want to be friends. 


These embroidered stockings from Harrod's are making my anglophile heart go "pitter-patter". Natural linen, embroidered with traditional Christmas vignettes - I mean, what could be better if you fancy a classical Christmas style? These would look beautiful in a neutral palette home with lots of traditional decor. I also have such fond memories of singing the 12 Days of Christmas with a set of traditional plates around the Christmas table. So, of course, these cute plates are feeling very sentimental. 


Moving on to a classic - buffalo check. Yes, it's all the rage right now but it's also timeless. Plaid / check is a Christmas staple but I love this blue buffalo check because I'm a sucker for all things blue. This Etsy shop has lots of beautiful stockings to choose from as well! Paired with retro pieces like this teak and brass tree stand, it's perfect for the mid-century home. 


And if you're a romantic, Anthropologie-loving, whismsical type... this embroidered owl stocking with pom-poms and trim is a great stocking to complement the home with lots of color, pattern-mixing and an "old-fashioned Christmas" vibe. Who else sang that in Karen Carpenter's voice? Just me? I also adore these little houses and colorful bristle brush trees! Now I'm all jazzed for Christmas!
