Here’s a closer look at my holiday-decorated family room in merry and bright hues of orange, green and white!
BTW, it took an entire year for the furniture for my living room makeover to arrive! The last chair was finally delivered last week. So I still have to wait until January to photograph the reveal. If you’d like a sneak peek though, join me this Wednesday, live with my friends Claire Jefford, Rachel Moriarty and Susan Brinson.
This live event will take place THIS Wednesday, December 22nd at 3 pm EST. This is open to the public – anyone can join and no sign ups or emails will be required.
Orange and Green Holiday Decor
In the meantime, I’m sharing my family room in orange and white this Christmas. I do have a new area rug that definitely adds more colour!
At the nursery, I picked up this flocked branch instead of a traditional wreath for my front door this year!
Lucy’s a mini-golden doodle but we prefer the poodle clip on her face! She’s brought so much joy to our life since we met her on Mothers Day this year.

I think this is the third time I’ve posted a tree decorated in orange. #truestory
And I love my new area rug. The colour and pattern is super versatile. It has all the cognac tones everyone is decorating with now but also contains blues, bright orange and coral tones.
Don’t look too closely at my throw pillows, Lucy likes to chew the corners of them 🙂
I love creating little holiday vignettes around the room to add in small doses of colour.

One thing Terreeia and I are secretly kinda happy about is that Lucy is full-grown now at almost 10 pounds.
We’re hoping when we’re flying regularly again, she’ll be small enough to be able to fly with us on the plane. We really hate to leave her behind.
I don’t typically display word signs in my house, but I do have two at Christmas.
Believe & Joy (you’ll see the word joy on my mantel).
Can you believe we’ve had the worst winter in decades here in November and the season has barely just begun?
With the terrible floods that started just a short two-minute drive from my home, it’s truly miraculous that it didn’t come as far as our little town here in Yarrow. We feel so grateful yet we are also saddened for the farmers who lost so much, including many animals.
If you want to give to the local flood relief, find more information here: https://www.yarrowalliance.org/
I’m so grateful for you and appreciate your love, support and comments! This blog is what it is because of you!
Merry Christmas from our house to yours!
Don’t forget to join my friends and me on Wednesday, here’s the zoom link. Remember, seats are limited!
PS. If you need some last-minute gift ideas, grab both of my eBooks (they don’t overlap) on how to choose paint colours and whites. They are inexpensive and full of super useful information you won’t find anywhere else. You can even message us to let us know they are a gift and we can deliver to them.
Also if you have a friend how is redecorating and buying most of his/her home decor items online (I mean, who isn’t) send them my Shop Online with Colour Confidence online course. They can access the course immediately and I promise it will transform the way they buy everything from this point forward.
I just had a conversation with a local client who is renovating her home and kitchen. She sent me a link and said “Do you like these counter stools for my kitchen?”
And here was my response:
I wouldn’t order this chair until we finalize your dining table and chairs, otherwise choosing this one in isolation will limit your options. . . this choice could easily eliminate better options . . for example, you might find a dining chair you like even better than this counter stool but now you can’t buy the dining chair because you already bought this chair and the two might not work in the same space.
So if you’re choosing it all together and you find a dining chair you like better than this one and that becomes your first choice, then you go back to the drawing board for the counter stool.Does that make sense? That’s why a mood board like the ones we have created on Google Slides are important. Buying furniture one item at a time is how you end up with a mishmash of random items that don’t work together.
