I Love Love Mood Boards // Tropical Christmas

Mele Kalikimaka is the thing to say on a bright Hawaiian Christmas day.  I've never spent Christmas any place that wasn't cold and snowy, but I had fun dreaming of a pretty way you could decorate for the holidays in a tropical locale.  Poppy pink hibiscus mixed with traditional poinsettias, evergreens combine with tropical greenery make for a fun off-beat mix.

I Love Love Mood Boards // Scandinavian Blush Christmas

Have you started decorating for Christmas yet?  I know I know, it's early, but it just makes me so happy to put on some Christmas music and start unpacking my decorations.  I've been thinking about how I want to change it up a little this year.  Recently, I've been doing lots of glitter in gold and silver/gold with bright pink and bright turquoise pops.  You can see some photos here and here.  But this year, I want to switch it up.  Something a little less bright, with more wood elements and inspiration drawn from Scandinavian Christmas decor.  I love the idea of rose gold geometric shapes, mixed with simple wreaths and perhaps some DIY tassels.  I also foresee one of these wood bead DIYs on my list of projects.  What are your decorating plans?  Are you mixing it up?

I Love Love Mood Boards // Scandinavian Christmas

Today's mood board is less about weddings and more about getting into the holiday spirit.  This year, I was thinking of doing Christmas a little more minimal.  I love the scandinavian holiday vibe.  A mix of blacks, metallics, whites, loads of texture and the more greenery the better!  Here is my decorating mood board.  Can I stick to it?  I guess we'll have to wait and see...

I love love mood boards // retro christmas party

I love kitschy Christmas decor and I've turned that love into inspiration for a hip holiday party.  Picture a Mad Men Christmas party, complete with lots of eggnog out of a punch bowl, fruitcakes from everyone and lots of necking under the mistletoe while Bing Crosby plays in the background.  I love the off-beat colors and the addition of glitz and glitter of the mood board below.
