It might not come as a surprise, but I personally prefer natural style Christmas decorations. What about you? Today I show you some examples of how stylish a ‘colorless’ Christmas can be. I will be adding some red to the Christmas decorations at our own home. And as my son loves colors (his favorites are pink, orange and purple!) we will have a smaller tree in our hallway with lots of color!
With seven weeks to go to Christmas it is time to start covering holiday seasons related topics. The first post in this series is about Advent calendars. For those not familiar with these calendars: an Advent calendar is a special calendar used to count or celebrate the days in anticipation of Christmas, beginning at 1st December. I have selected 10 beautiful advent calendars that either can be made yourself or can be purchased on Etsy. You can find the links to the instructions or shops at the end of the post. Enjoy!
Fall is definitely here and although it is not my favorite season (Spring is) I do enjoy this time of the year. With days and nights getting colder I like to cozy up my home and add decorating touches to make it cozy and welcoming.

At the bottom of this post you can find links to the source which is where you can find more information and instructions.
An exposed brick wall has become a popular feature in interior design. Leaving a wall bare with the bricks visible can give an apartment, home or loft an industrial and unconventional touch and adds character to the interior. Here are 10 of the most beautiful interiors with exposed walls that I found online. Older homes typically have brick underneath the plaster walls, and the brick may still be in good condition. You can expose and restore it back to its former beauty. Find more information on how to do this yourself here. Also in ‘the 10′ series are ten beautiful sinks made of stone.
Today I’m loving … this advent calendar made from toilet paper rolls and cardboard. And you don’t need to wrap the calendar gifts, you simply lock them inside the rolls. Find out how to make this calendar on Morning Creativity.
Used shipping pallets are great to use for a design DIY project. They are inexpensive, rustic looking and using reclaimed wood/products is evironmental friendly. You can paint them (or not) and pile them up with some lovely cushions to create a sofa. But there is a lot more you can do. Here are some of the best pallet projects that I found online.
