I refuse to decorate for Christmas before Thanksgiving (one holiday at a time kind of gal) but I have been getting that little Christmas decorating urge lately. Now that I finally have a one bedroom apartment, I’ll actually have room for a full sized tree! As much as I’ve loved my tiny trees for the last few years, I can’t wait to have a 6 foot one in my living room. I want to mix it up a bit from past decor, but do want to incorporate a few elements from last year.
So, I’ve rounded up some lovely Christmas inspiration from my old apartment, my parents’ home, along with the lovely holiday charm of DC and NYC. Lastly, I’ve searched for a few tree decorating ideas since I’ll have a few more branches to cover this year 🙂 Check it all out below.
2014 Christmas time in DC:
I’ll be visiting the capitol tree, white house tree, union station and all the holiday staples around the city over the next few weeks for my annual Christmas in DC post 🙂
2013 Christmas time in NYC:
Also heading back to NYC in a couple weeks for a quick weekend trip! It’s been two years since I’ve seen the city in December, so I can’t wait!
I want to go with something fairly simple and incorporate a few metallic elements in my tree decor this year. These two images are gorgeous and will serve as great decorating inspiration.
