We’ll Have a Pink Christmas

Our home has been lovingly bedecked for the holidays.

Pink Christmas Tree

I’ve already shown you what the tree looks like undecorated

And I gave you a little glimpse of it with ornaments…

Now I have the rest of our tree, and a few other holiday decorations to show you.

I’ve even decorated the light in the dining room (inspired by Brooke).

Really, I can’t believe I hesitated to buy the pink Christmas tree. It fits in so perfectly here.

    Everything is so beautiful! I think what is so inspiring about you and everything you design is that it is so unapologetically you. You are so good at trusting your instincts and pushing the envelope. Eleanor is lucky to have such a confident role model to emulate. You push me to follow my gut and worry less about what people think. Modern estancia, here I come. ;)

    p.s. You outdid yourself again with your Christmas cards this year!

      I second the stocking hook question. I’ve been searching everywhere for ones that I like and haven’t found a thing.

      They ARE official stocking holders. I bought them years ago from Hold Everything (they’re designed by Jonathan Adler) – they were on clearance for $5.

    Did you make the stocking letters or did you buy them? If bought, where? That’s a modern & timeless idea for labeling stockings. You inspired me to try that for my family.
