The Week in Snapshots 12.5


This week has really flown by! I’ve been preparing for my final project at Oxbow, an installation around a wall that includes an interior vignette. I’m working with an antique store downtown to fill the space and I’m excited to share the result. If any of my California-based followers are interested in attending the Open House, shoot me an email and I would love to share the details. Besides work on my project, I’ve been really excited about all of the festive holiday posts flying around. Fun present wrapping ideas and this tree decorating party have definitely gotten me into the Christmas spirit! Enjoy these fun links from the blogosphere this week:

1 / Emily Henderson shares some pretty festive and fantastic styling tricks with Target. She even mixes silver and gold, just like Burl Ive’s song from Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer. Head to her blog to watch the video and check out the black, white and metallic holiday decor and tabletop styling.

2 / Kelly Wearstler’s bold lifestyle and decor brand definitely has a playful sense of glamor, and I’m head over heels for her styling for Domaine’s Holiday Entertaining 2014 guide. White and gold are made fresh again with high-contrast vignettes and lots of pattern-mixing.

3 / This modern hanging holiday decor from Paper & Stitch is simple but quite the conversation starter. It’s a fresh and funky way to use paper ornaments, and I love the pop of color the neon string adds! Definitely a fun piece to hang above the table or even add to the tablescape itself.

4 / DesignLoveFest never fails to host some of the best decor giveaways of the season, and I’m especially excited for this $250 credit giveaway to Clever Spaces! If you like those circular hanging shelves in her bedroom you’ll definitely want to enter…

5 / Pop onto Twitter or Pinterest and you’ll find more than enough gift guides for any gift-receiever on your list, but I especially love this guide for designers from Eavan Elizabeth. It’s fun and specific and features some of my favorite small brands.

6 / Almost every store has a holiday sale going on right now, but Barney’s Designer Sale is especially exciting! 40% off top designers like Christian Louboutin and Isabel Marant.

7 / If you haven’t already checked out the 24 Days of Merry giveaways, you should head over to Apartment 34 right now to enter to win two Loeffler Randall bags! You don’t want to miss the amazing giveaways that are going on everyday from now until Christmas, so also head to 24 Merry Days to catch up.
