Hey, ya’ll – how has your week been? This week has been surprisingly good, and it’s hard to believe we’re already halfway through December. The holiday season is in full swing, and to embrace the festive spirit, we decided to stay in San Francisco this weekend and rediscover the charm of our own city. Exploring familiar streets and neighborhoods felt like a mini adventure, with cozy cafes and festive decorations everywhere. The holiday trolleys are my favorite- they’re so cute! If you find yourself in San Francisco, you have to check out my favorite views. They each offer a unique perspective that captures the essence of this iconic cityscape. It’s amazing how a weekend of local exploration can bring a renewed appreciation for the place you call home – I love it here.
One of my absolute favorite things to do in San Francisco is scour the city’s shops for unique art and treasures. There’s just something magical about stumbling upon original art pieces that tell a story or add a touch of charm to a space. Artwork, for me, is not just about aesthetics but also about weaving a narrative into the fabric of interior design. My gallery walls have become these curated collections of personal stories, each piece holding a special place in my heart. There’s nothing quite like the feeling of discovering that perfect piece and finding the ideal spot for it on my gallery wall at home.
Okay, before we jump into some fun holiday room chat, I want to chat about planning out our kitchen space in the cabin. I’ve compiled a detailed list of kitchen electrical requirements that I wish I knew when starting this project. It talks about everything from the correct materials that you need to checking the electrical requirements – you def need to check it out. If you’re considering a kitchen redo in the new year, my Amazon storefront has so many good finds for you. Specifically my favorite cookbook from Dishoom– it’s to die for.
Okay, let’s talk about this stunning holiday living room by Seeking Lavender Lane. It’s so cozy and exudes that enchanting old-world Christmas charm. The combination of beautiful furniture pieces and holiday home accents really creates that warm and inviting atmosphere – and most of the pieces in this room can be used for the entire winter season. I couldn’t resist and curated a mood board with all the pieces I found to capture and recreate that timeless holiday vibe in my own space.
First off, we have this framed landscape art piece. The scene is so picturesque – it’s like bringing a slice of Europe right into your space. I’m convinced it’s the missing piece that’ll amp up the old-world charm in a holiday living room design. This piece in a gallery wall would be chef’s kiss!
