Whew! What a fabulous season. With all that’s going on in the world, it’s nice to take extra time to enjoy family and friends. To share time, energy, food and affection with your family but also with the guy you pass on the street or the person next to you on the bus. Smile, encourage, support, show compassion, attention and care for each other will make everyone’s holiday memorable. We hope you thoroughly enjoyed your holiday – whatever form it took – but now it’s time to rest, relax and rejuvenate.
We’ll be back to our regular posting schedule next week and jump right back into offering solid information and advice on how to make your home, your space, the best it can be. Until then, a few eye-candy photos to celebrate the end of the year.

Maybe your winter looks like this – and we should all be envious!
Winter, not Christmas
After Christmas, we still have a few months of winter before we can legitimately start putting out anything evoking spring, so how do you carry over any sort of ‘themed’ decor? Focus on wintry items like snowflakes, snowmen (without any red/green), blue and white colors to replicate the colors outside, bare branches, pinecones and other natural elements.
Cindy shares some ideas on how to decorate for winter that are sure to get you inspired.
Rooms That Feel Wintry
The blue tones pervading this room make it definitely feel cool; the styling makes it feel formal.
Again, formal, but the first word that came to mind when I saw this room was icy. Brrr.
Whether your weather is frigid and snowy or balmy and filled with palm trees swaying, we hope you’re able to relax a little in this post holiday week. Soon enough you can worry about taking down decorations and how to store everything…..for now, Rest.
