A Modern Take on a Tradition

Oh, how I love Christmas time! Mostly because of my very fond memories of growing up in a family where traditions matter. But also because of the unlimited opportunities to get creative with the festivities! My every-day style is very clean, modern and uncluttered. Yet, in years past, I somehow always opted for very ornate, rich and traditional Christmas decorations. 

This year...

I wondered how to make my Christmas decorations and entertainment more aligned with the rest of my year preferences. At first, a modern, yet warm and cozy Christmas sounded like an oxymoron. But then I found these lovely treasures! I thought the best way of staying warm was to utilize sweet golden colors and contrast those with shiny silver tones. The added festive feel of clear glass gives a touch of glamour without going over-board!

I can already feel the excitement building!
