Hi, friends! I recently spent a few days in Vancouver, B.C. with some friends and my girls. While we were there we visited what might be one of my new-to-me favorite home shops ever. It’s called The Cross Decor & Design. They describe it as a little bit beachy, a little bit romanic and very West Coast. YES! I love that combo. I’d say it’s somewhat of a “cross” (get it?) between Sesame & Lilies and Anthropologie (see my Anthro ‘Out to See’ posts here and here).

Today I thought I’d take you along with us and we’d do a little festive window shopping.

Let’s go!

P.S. And… don’t miss the end of the post where I share a link to The Inspired Room’s updated annual online Christmas shop, too! Or you can head straight to the shop HERE.

Speaking of holiday shopping, I’m so excited that The Inspired Room annual Christmas decor & gift shop is updated and ready for you to shop online! As always, we scoured the web for all our favorite holiday finds…the cutest stockings/holders, wreaths and ornaments, trees and garlands and more.

You’ll see some favorites at the top, and then if you scroll to the bottom you can filter by category like ornaments, stockings, garland and lights, Christmas houses, and wreaths!

I know one thing for sure…this cozy sweater mug is heading straight to my cart. I don’t think I can resist it.

I noticed that a lot of what’s in my shops is on sale right now! I know some things will sell out quickly, so don’t wait to order something you love (even if you aren’t QUITE ready to deck the halls yet!). :)The Cross Decor & Design: Out to See + TIR Christmas Shop

Preparing Your Nest for a Cozy Holiday

Preparing Your Nest for a Cozy HolidayThis post is in partnership with World Market

Any home can be cozier and more functional in time for the holidays! We make our home work for us, whether it is setting up for a holiday or even just a regular family night.

This time of year I often get an idea in my head about a change I want to make, or a problem I want to solve around the house before guests arrive. Suddenly all the problems seem easier to solve, and completing projects feels more urgent…I think because we are on a deadline to get it all done by Thanksgiving or Christmas :).

Preparing Your Nest for a Cozy Holiday

My husband laughs and rolls his eyes because I say “I have an idea” about a million times a week, not just around the holidays. But this week, my idea for a little change ended up improving our day to day life AND our holiday home.

I found a neat new cabinet at World Market (there is a crazy 40% off furniture sale with code right now, click here for the code, scroll down in this post for my favorite items!) that I am pretty excited about!

It’s going to work as a dining room buffet cabinet (for serving and storage) and a TV console.

I think I’ve mentioned before that we sometimes set up a little TV in the dining room when we want to watch something together while we eat, or as a place for my kids and niece and nephew to play video games during the holidays.

I really don’t like to leave the TV set up all the time, but having a cabinet in place gives us a natural place to put the TV when we do. We had previously set up a table in this spot, but it was a few inches deeper than the cabinet.

I love how tidy this cabinet is! It will be so useful day to day and for entertaining during the holidays, even without the TV.

The cabinet has storage but is still shallow enough that we can easily squeeze past it (squeeze meaning after a big meal HAHAH!). I also really like that it is actually a media stand so it has cutouts in the back of the cabinet. You can put electronic gadgets like a game system or cable box in the cabinet and the cords can go out the back!

I feel like my dining room is cozier and more comfortable for our needs now, so it is ready to serve people well.
