Inspired for Christmas

My favorite holiday of the year is around the corner. As you've noticed my lack of posts, things have been creeping up to an elevated stress of packing and moving. It saddens me I am unable to decorate much for the holidays... although every little bit helps to add to this beautiful Christmas atmosphere in New York City, which means I will still acquire my traditional yearly fresh wreath (minus my ornaments which are already packed away).

So inspired by all the holiday cheer, Nikki's home stood out to me. She and I have the same taste in Christmas decorations: natural, minimal and monochromatic. It's so refreshing, isn't it? I can just smell those pine needles and the scent of cloves brewing in the air.

Every year I look forward to this home's holiday decorations. Hop on over to My Scandinavian Home blog and Nikki's Instagram for ultimate great ideas and inspiration this year!

Holiday Feeling

The alarm buzzed at 5 a.m. much to my dismay. The city street was so silent and I was reminded of holiday mornings... Ahh yes (half asleep), today is Thanksgiving and a full day ahead will be spent in the apartment in preparation for all the festivities. Crawling back into the duvet cave I had created, I dreamed of lingering cinnamon scent, pies and cranberry sauce.

The apartment is in shambles at the moment since the task of editing and packing are still in the works (we are moving to sunny California in 5 weeks, but will forever be grateful to NYC - the city that never sleeps). But I adore all the holiday feeling that surrounds New York City these past few weeks. I do gravitate to the rustic charm of old branches and paper, burlap or linen ornaments. Winter has officially begun in the city. Have you started your holiday decorations? I'm debating whether or not to pack my string of lights...

Utilize that Corner

The excitement I feel about living in a small flat is beyond me! Packing is not my favorite thing to do, but I love the editing process and visualizing the next place to live. Small spaces have always intrigued me and I am up to the challenge. Minimizing is truly the way to do it.

Been rather busying myself gathering inspiration on tiny apartments. No denying the Scans are best at furnishing those challenging corners… This space here uses ways in dividing areas without feeling obtrusive. And utilizing every single tiny corner is a must but without compromising style and functionality.
