It’s been forever since I checked in so wanted to sign in and share some goodness.
Today, I’m super happy to be able to show you how we’ve decorated this year for Christmas. It’s actually the first one we’re going to be spending at our new/old house so I really wanted to make it special. My parents and sister/her family will be joining us, so definitely had to make the place festive.
This year, the scheme started with my newly found obsession with pink babys breath. I worked with the incredibly talented Coyote Flowers on an Christmas install we did for a local hotel, and was convinced then and there that I wanted a version of that install, in my own house. The pink was to be the foundation of the colour story, with some burgundy layered in for a contrast. And of course, I wanted a decidedly romantic feel with a touch of decadence because why not right?!?!
So with the concept in place, I set to work compiling all the pieces of the puzzle.
To start, of course we needed a tree. When we were renovating this house, the chaos of the construction and moving resulted in our existing Christmas tree being somehow lost…cue tears and a lot of cursing. Though we have bought real ones in the past, I wanted to have decorations up for all of December so decided an artificial one was again the way to go. I looked around a bunch and then got super excited when Veronneau reached out to me. For those who may not know, Veronneau is a fabulous decor store based in Quebec. They offer furniture, accessories, seasonal decor, artificial plants, design services and holiday rentals. After looking through their site to find potential tree candidates, I very happily landed on this 7.5′ beauty…
I LOVE the thick flocking and the size works perfectly in our space.
Next, I needed some decorations so in keeping with the colour story, I ordered up some of these…
And copper picks…
And that was the base for what was going to happen with the tree.
In terms of the rest of the decor, I knew I wanted beautiful stockings, garlands and a large wreath for the front door.
For the later, I chose this loveliness…
My order came super quickly and I was even more in love with everything once I saw it in person.
And once all was put in place our house is now holiday ready…
So yes…I’m not mad about how it all came together at all and would highly recommend Veronneau to all those who might be in the market for some holiday decor…they offer beautiful things, great prices and most importantly, exceptional service.
I’ll be sharing the second part of this reveal, the family shots, early next week so stay tuned for that and a HUGE thank you to the amazing Kieran Darcy in the meantime for capturing things, as she always does, in the absolute prettiest of lights.
