Inspiration: Green and Brown Christmas

Wrapped Gift Boxes Display
I have always loved a natural green and brown scheme for Christmas.  It feels modern and fresh as well as traditional.  I am all for keeping it simple.  Especially this time of year when it becomes hectic.  All it takes to pull this off is a bit of restraint: Fresh greenery, maybe some pine cones.  It can even look glam with a bit of gold and/or silver.  Easy does it, though.  This scheme is all about nature and simplicity.

Thymes Poured Candle, Frasier Fir, 6.5-Ounce Jar
My very favorite candle of all time.  This candle smells as close to a fresh pine tree as you can get!  I just bought a new bottle of their cleaner today.  My husband is from Montana and he loves this scent since it reminds him of home.  Honestly, go get one of the many Thymes products today if you want your house to smell as beautiful as these spaces look!

Day 10:  I am thankful that there is always a way to make life more beautiful.  I am lucky that I can look around and find inspiration everywhere.  

Have a lovely weekend!


  1. Great pics, love that the color combination works well for Christmas, but is not overly Christmasy for the rest of the year. I have a lot of green and brown going on in my living room perhaps I'll post pics one day.


  2. Thank you, Nora! You are so right about this combination not reading as overly Christmasy--that is one of the reasons I love it. I would very much like to see your living room pictures. I will be watching for them:)
