Did you just hear that?
The jingling of bells, pitter-patter on the rooftop, a holly jolly chuckle? Well, that could only be the sound of one thing:
ME! Decorating my house for the holidays!!!
I simply adore this time of year! Not because of the gifts, or because I constantly find myself surrounded by endless trays of delicious baked goods (okay, I lie, I love that too), but I especially ADORE this time of year because I get to pepper my home with copious amounts of glitter and hang enough twinkly lights to make the Griswold’s jealous! I LOVE decorating for the holidays!
No longer are red and green the sole colours that mark the holiday season. These days, just about anything goes! Purple, silver, pink, or gold. There are so many options to create a holiday look that perfectly fits in with your year-round décor and shows off your personal holiday style.
I’ve been dabbling with the thought of a holiday style redo this year! For the past few years, my festive living room colour combo of choice has been tangerine and gold – warm, spicy, and inviting! But there’s a new trendy holiday hue in town that has caught my eye, true blue!!!
One of my FAVE websites, Olioboard, recently asked me to participate in their #HolidayStyle OlioHop so I figured it was the perfect opportunity to “test drive” my latest holiday colour crush. If you haven’t tried out Olioboard yet, I’m warning you, it’s addictive!! You can create online mood boards in 2D or 3D room designs using real products from countless brands. Best part? All items on olioboard link through to the retailers online store for purchase making it quick and easy for you to design AND shop in your pajamas!
So, here’s my icy blue holiday creation…
I think Elvis was onto something when he sang “Blue Christmas”
What do you think??
Crisp white, cool blue, toned teal, and rich navy make this a snowy, sophisticated space fit for any ice prince or princess!

One last thing, Iíd love to know what is your holiday style???
Happy Painting & Decorating!
