Inspired Holidays {Day 16}:: Fresh Inspiration

Sometimes when it comes to decorating with a little more personality, we just need to push ourselves to try something we haven’t done before.

Try Fresh Colors.

Don’t be afraid to break out of a traditional seasonal or holiday color scheme and try something fresh and new to you. (photo via Southern Living)

Inspired Holidays {Day 16}:: Fresh Inspiration


Combine natural elements like fruit with greenery for a centerpiece — so simple but so pretty from fall right on until Christmas!

Inspired Holidays {Day 16}:: Fresh InspirationBHG

I love the unexpected combinations like a tree in a pitcher or pail. Putting this vignette on a staircase rather than a table or mantel is also a fresh and fun idea.

So many great 31 Day series going on! Check out all the links here.

    Loving that BHG photo with JOY spelled out in turquoise, but that’s not what really makes me happy…it’s the chipped, scuffed stairs looking so like my own. ☺

  3. Heather

    What lovely pictures! Your blog has the perfect name, because you are an inspiration. I’ve been longing to add some fall decor to my home, but I don’t want to spend money…I will have to see what I can dig out or make ;-)

    Each if these ideas are so pretty…simple and charming. Biggest plus even I can create them alk by myself. Passing the epsom salts but only to the most special friends. Our new secret gift

    I loved the unexpected blue-green pumpkins. They especially look nice with the stools!

    I just showed my husband the tops photo with the 3 white pumpkins.

    Our family went to the orchard today to pick pumpkins. I got some harvest corn and some bumpy gourds. The munchkin got his pumpkin. And, my hubby bought 3 small white pumpkins – two w/o stems and 1 with.

    He made a baby white pumpkin snowman for our living room.
    So darling.
    It was fun seeing a full sized version :)
