I’m very partial to my Christmas decorations this year! They are simple were so doable. Especially the decor on my open shelves. I didn’t really have to rearrange much! I mostly added some pretty Christmas decorations and a few brightly wrapped presents. Don’t you love decorating the easy way… especially when the finished product reflects your style? And the Christmas open shelves are just my style!
The back of StoneGable is very open and I call it the “back bowling alley”. It’s long and narrow. It starts at the garage door and ends at the fireplace. My breakfast nook is tucked right in the middle of the bowling alley!
To the left are the open shelves and bar and to the right is my kitchen table. Just an FYI… this area is getting a little makeover and I’ll share it with you on January 11th.
My husband, Bobby planked the wall and made the shelves above the bar.
This has become such a fun spot to decorate!
Most of the year I keep the open shelves pretty neutral… white mostly because I don’t want them to look too busy. But who could resist adding a little Christmas color?
The boxwood in the frame made an appearance again this year. It brings a big pop of pretty green color! Boxwood is perfect for this time of year!
I wrapped a few small packages in some non-traditional Christmas wrapping paper and added them to the shelf too! I love wrapping Christmas gifts with fun paper and bows!
Boxwood is a repeated theme on the shelves this season! Here’s a design tip: repeat themes and colors and elements throughout shelves like the ones here or bookcases or hutches. It will make the area you are decorating look put together!
I added a new white pitcher on the top shelf. It has a chalkboard band around it. I wrote “joy” on it and embellished it with my signature black and white ribbon to reflect the season! I’m sure it will be a fixture on the shelves!
This year’s Christmas theme is “trees”! Bottle brushes dot the shelves! Each year I pick a “theme” for Christmas. It helps me choose my decorations, gift wrap, ribbon, etc. I think next year’s theme is going to be WINTER WONDERLAND. Sorta soft and white and snowy. But next Christmas is a long way off so the theme is not written in stone!
All the little white bottle brushes I’ve been collection would work perfectly with a Winter Wonderland theme, don’t you think?
