Last Christmas was just like any other day for me. The Arizona weather seemed to erase the magic and not being with my Ohio family was quite depressing.
I'm thankful that the Husband and I were able to spend this Holiday in the Midwest! Seeing all of the kids open their presents from Santa brought that magic back, making everything right again.
No snow though! I guess I can't have everything ;)
I felt my photography skills were lacking so I don't have many pictures to share.
Let me start by saying that the younger half of Design DNA does her Holidays BIG! This girl had 3 live trees (living room, dining room, basement), and 2 artificial trees (foyer and guest bedroom). Unfortunately I wasn't able to capture all of the Christmas flair.
Dining Room: Colors were white and silver. The Brother-in-Law informed me that he used 17 strands of lights on this bad boy!
Living Room: Colors used were very rustic - brown, maroon and cream. She did a lot of ornament clustering this year.
Going along with the rustic feel of the living room, sticks were grouped in a large vase and finished off with the same coordinating ribbon from the Christmas Tree.
The stairs even got the Christmas treatment. White lights and live garland were strung up the railing.
Thanks for taking the tour.
We wish you and your family a great new year!
