I must admit that I love this time of the year for so many reasons… gold twinkle lights, hot cocoa, Christmas music, glittens (I LOVE my glittens)…
To bring on the cheer all year long here are some of my favorite rooms inspired by the season (velvet red, deep green, glittery gold and snowy white make me feel warm and fuzzy 356 days a year).
Whatever colors inspire you this holiday, may they be cheery and bright year long!

This week my guest blog interview is inspired by everything handmade… and it’s wonderful! Take a journey with me to visit Disney of Ruffles and Stuff and her beautiful DIY world.
As we approach the holidays and our wallets become a bit barer (and our New Year’s resolutions a bit stronger!) I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to introduce you to a very lovely lady that embodies all things crafty and (most importantly!) pretty. A personal resolution of mine is to cut back on the ‘purchasing’ and up the ‘repurposing’ for home decor — and Ruffles and Stuff is the PERFECT blog to meet such requirements.
What’s most exciting is that all images in today’s interview are projects handmade by Disney herself! She covers the gamut of delicate slippers (see below) to framed flowers and ruffled lampshades (after the jump). Disney also designs and creates beautiful clothing (see Chanel-inspired cuffs above) for herself and her two year-old-daughter.
Disney shares that her two greatest joys in life are rain and coffee (she’s a Washington native) and that “other than reading Dr. Seuss and scraping play-dough off of the floor, my favorite thing to do in my spare time is craft!”
I love that her living room walls are black and that she offers step-by-step directions on making your own bib necklace… and you must read her answers to the four PDB questions (and check out pictures of her home makeover and projects) after the jump! Read more »

These Before & Afters by Habitat Hanalei Interiors are so inspiring! They are beautiful, classy and every bit stylish in their final design.
While you might not be in the market for a tear-down-the-walls renovation, creative ideas like these can inspire quick fixes too: remap the layout of a room to bring just the right amount of change, add a faux fireplace to a blank wall for a bit of architectural detail, repaint ceiling beams white to really make your space appear BIG, or incorporate new rugs, slipcovers or window coverings to spruce things up.
Follow the jump for four more inspiring Before & After shots, including PINK occasional chairs that I heart and a bright green guest room to satisfy that itch to be daring. Read more »
