Traditional Christmas Red has never worked in my house due to my terra cotta floor tiles. I have always kind of skirted the issue at Christmas. This year when we did our small redo I decided to embrace the floors rather than avoid them. I added these Schumacher Strie Velvet Pillows.
My kitchen is connected to my family room where this tile sets the tone. By the way check out my early Christmas present from my Italian friend Esther! Are you jealous?
If you follow me on Instagram you saw the fabulous paper and ribbon I scored at Marshall’s and Michaels. I am so excited I can’t wait to get wrapping this weekend. The flip side of getting paper that is not Christmas specific is being able to use it all year round. I don’t know about you but I am tired of all the leftover santa and christmas tree wrap left in my wrapping bin!!
Here are some of my favorite wrapping combinations that I sourced on Pinterest. Black and white is always right isn’t it? And who doesn’t love a little polka dot?!!
