We Wish You A Merry Christmas and A Happy New Year!

Take this moment to soak in the fact that we are nearing the end of 2021. This has been probably the fastest year we have experienced. I can’t believe we are welcoming a new year in a week and a half. So many new faces and projects have come and gone through our doors and we are so grateful. With how crazy things have been just surrounding COVID, time slipped right through our fingers. All those great ideas you had of starting that project you have been holding off you either started and finished or you at least started. The biggest step is taking the first step because you don’t know, what you don’t know. If you have questions and just aren’t sure where to start we can help you navigate, we are here to help you the best we can. We are one call away at 425-224-2004.

Which Type of Christmas Decorator Are You? Find Out Here

[ Jennifer Kelly Geddes]

Dear all you holiday decorators out there right now: Whether you’ve got your Christmas tree all trimmed and lights up or plan to go nuts soon, let us take a moment to ask an important question: Exactly what type of holiday decorator are you, anyway? 

Odds are (and ideally), your holiday design style should fit right in with the rest of your home’s look. For instance, if you love a minimalist aesthetic, going all-out maximalist on your Christmas decor might look woefully out of place. So if you’re not sure where you stand on design-around your home in general, or over the holidays-we’re here to help. We’ve broken down the big decor groups with visuals and shopping advice so you can plan your style and add to cart at the same time.


Less is more when you’re looking for impact in a minimalist home. Spare yet elegant decorations are definitely the descriptors you’re looking for. 

“A Christmas tree adorned with a neutral or single-color palette, along with sentimental ornaments and simple white lights, showcases the reason for the season,” says Suzanne Falk of eponymous design firm.

Continue this look in your minimalist home with this quick-to-assemble modern tree, and then bedeck it with one them, such as birds, leaves, or geometric shapes. Choose from three sizes, including a 3-foot tabletop version.


The sky’s the limit with maximalist decor as it can range from heaps of red and green in every room to the full spectrum of color on your (five!) trees. 

Bold and bright is the way to go here-and you can pick a tree in a color other than green, too, says Andra DelMonico, lead interior designer at Trendey. 

“Choose bright pink, lime green, oversized ornaments, and extra-wide statement ribbon in satin or velvet,” she adds. 

A set of textural fans is the perfect pop on a maximalist home’s tree. This affordable bunch of six comes in multiple sizes with clips for reusing the pieces every year.

Boho Style

Handcrafted global accents that offer texture and warmth are the hallmarks of boho design. So when you’re home for the holidays, consider a table draped with a fur runner, woven place mats, and chunky wooden candlesticks, as shown here. 
“You won’t find traditional ball ornaments in this house, so look to Moroccan designs, knits, ceramics, and anything that appears handmade,” says Marco Bizzley, interior designer and consultant at HouseGrail. 
Solid mango wood holders for pillar candles are a smart boho find, and they make sense on a crowded table or mantel as they’re less likely to topple.

Modern Farmhouse

Wish you could channel Joanna Gaines’ home during the holidays? Then you’re clearly a modern farmhouse fan. Equal parts rustic yet refined, this style hails the holidays with soft knit stockings, white lights, and green garlands.

‘Grandmillenial’ Style

Granny chic has been co-opted by the millennial set, and Falk says it involves “layering a tree with a mix of textiles, prints, and florals, plus toile ribbon and an animal-print tree skirt.” 
Antiques, ceramics, lace, and needlework also hit the “grandmillennial” decor mark. Vintage-style embroidery is an ideal granny touch by the fire and the fold-over velvet cuffs seen here add a rich softness.

Hollywood Glam

Devotees of this look, also called Hollywood Regency Decor, love metallics, glitz, and mirrors for days. Bold patterns also figure prominently as does anything considered over the top, like these white ceramic fawns nestled in a bed of silver tinsel. 
Bizzley suggests leaning on lighter shades, like white, pale pink, tan, and gold, and using animal prints and a flocked tree, which is one that’s been dusted with white powder so it looks snow-capped. 
Any animal could work with Hollywood glam decor, but reindeer make a perfect sense right now. This sylvan creature is both stylish and playful, and a worthy accent on your sideboard or mantel.


For a hygge Christmas, swaddle yourself and your decor in sheepskin and lay in a supply of natural fibers to craft a look that feels warm and cozy. 
“Pick fabrics like wool, mohair, fleece, and embrace knitted sweater patterns in your decorations,” says DelMonico. 
Make a simple wall hanging like this one with a set of seasonal snowflakes which help to bring back the macramé fad in a chic way.

  5. Using a medium cookie scoop, scoop balls of dough (about 2 tablespoon each) onto prepared baking sheets. Press down lightly on each cookie to flatten, then press remaining potato chips, pretzels, and chocolate chips, and sprinkles on top. Sprinkle with flaky salt.
  6. Bake until edges are just starting to get golden, 14 minutes. 
  7. Remove from oven and let cool 2 to 3 minutes, then transfer to cooling rack to cool completely.
