Happy Friday! Will you be Christmas decorating this weekend or do you wait until after Thanksgiving? We are strict waiters around here because we love to cut down a fresh tree either the Friday or Saturday after Thanksgiving. I also start to feel a little crazy when the Christmas decor has been out for too long so in order for it to keep some of its magic I wait. Anyone else get overstimulated by the extra stuff in your house or is that just me?
So since I’m not preparing for Christmas decorating, I’m doing some weekend reading and catching up with some of my favorite blogs. I thought I’d share with you a few of my recent finds…
Next, The Nester made a video about sofa styling! She talks about pattern and texture and how your throw and your pillows and your couch are like three friends working together. Love it. Check out her post and cute video here.
Oh and speaking of Christmas, have you seen this video from Ikea (of all places??)? A good reminder as we enter this season. Warning, get your tissues out for this one!
Do you read Design Mom? She does these wonderful Living with Kids home features and her latest one is one of my favorites. Aside from having a beautiful home, the family featured also has a greenhouse that their kids use for painting and art. What an amazing spot to allow for creativity and not have to worry about cleaning up the mess! Find the rest of the tour here.
Lastly, I am just in love with this window seat and built-in reveal by Brit over at House Updated. Check out her post here that gives lots more pictures and all the details of this beautiful space in her living room. While you’re at it check out the rest of her blog, too, she’s got some great stuff happening!
That’s it for now. Whether you’re Christmas decorating or not this weekend, I hope you have a great one!
