It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like


Decorating for the holidays is kind of therapeutic. We hung snowflakes from the ceiling this year and they look awesome. The lights cast a multitude of snowflake shadows on the wall and so it looks like it is snowing in our California living room. I didn't expect it to look as good as it does. I love when life throws you little rewards like that.

The miniature holiday scene above started with the wallpaper. I found this paper in the scrapbook aisle of the hobby store. I usually like white walls but this paper forced me to try something different. Actually, I was seduced by several sheets. I took several prints home with me. Yeah, word is out in paper land that I'm easy. I refuse to be ashamed!

The Goods: Chairs are Kitty Puppenmobel; credenza is Selecta; daybed sofa and pillows are Mini Modernistas; all accessories are Lundby, AG Minis, CB2, Playmobil and random yet common hobby store finds.

  2. The snowflake shadows sounds really nice, we have a stained glass window (designed be me) and in the summer when the light from the north shines through it, colourful new patterns are seen on the white walls in our livingroom. That never fails to make me happy :-)
    I really like your wallpaper, it's very cheerful and the furniture has just the right amount of brightness to match. One can really tell you was inspired!
