MERRY

I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THE HOLIDAYS!
Especially holiday decor!
Keeping with my minimalist/ monochromatic taste, I opt for metallics when it comes to decorating for the holidays. This is only a peek, and I have yet to decide whether or not I'll be adding a tree or not this year... 
My Dining Area: 
Arranged on my black cow hide rug, my Docksta table, faux bamboo chairs which I re painted and upholstered. 
I purchased them all (3, one of which I painted a sea foam green and upholstered the seat in a muted zebra for my bedroom) for $50 from an acquaintance who hadn't taken to them. They were originally a natural wood finish and taupe faux suede seats. I finished them in a high gloss black and chose color, yes...COLOR (lol), 
hot pink raw silk fabric for the seats.  
I couldn't be happier with them!
My table is decorated with a silver antler candlestick holder, silver brush Christmas tree a homemade holiday flower centerpiece and silver candles. 
 Silver sprayed Eucalyptus and various other fillers
 make holiday decor simple and chic.
My signature cinnamon sangria recipe is yummy, red 
and therefore perfect for the holidays, no? 
 Close up of some of my entertainment center's holiday cheer. 
My Foyer Area: 
I haven't added too much decoration to this area yet, only long sprigs of silver Eucalyptus.. but plan on adding a bowl of ornaments soon for a bit more sparkle. 
Lucite table from CB2. Vintage, hand-painted, Asian silk, framed in a mirrored frame from a flea market. J Adler and flea market vases. Lamp and 
Chinese silver drum from TJ Maxx. 
 Twinkle lights and a downtown view :) 
YAY! The holiday's are near!
