Neutral Holiday Decor

You all know I love my neutral decor and even when it comes to holiday decorating I tend not to stray too far. We don’t have a lot of space in our apartment to go all out festive, so instead I like to use our neutral rooms as a canvas to layer in fresh greenery and a few pretty seasonal accents. My second gift guide is more about gifts for yourself – the gift of holiday decor!

I like to hang mini wreaths in all of our windows and have found a simple red and white ribbon to be the prettiest accent. I don’t normally gravitate towards red, but little hints throughout definitely help to make every room feel more festive. Since we are quite limited on space I also like to have a pretty basket bag (or two) to corral gifts around the tree. I usually wrap a lot to bring to my parents house on Christmas so it is nice to have most of the gifts in easy to transport totes. I still love looking at my holiday home tour photos from last year to get some inspiration for how I am going to decorate this year!
