We’ve been decking the halls for weeks already yet somehow we’ve barely scratched the surface at our own home. That is about to change though. Over the weekend we rolled out the welcome mat and pulled the vintage sled out of storage.
There is a simple formula for holiday door decor that I like to follow every December: vintage sled (always), seasonal wreath and fresh greenery.
We’re going bold this season with blue, yellow and layers of green. Sort of nautical, sort of traditional. I painted the sled in boxwood milk paint this time around and framed it with a joint ruler star and holly. The felt mistletoe wreath, from Uncommon Goods, fits right in as it is traditional yet unexpected.
The folks at Uncommon Goods contacted me last month to check out their Christmas gifts. I love the texture of the mistletoe wreath and the adorable white berries. I’ve been a fan of Uncommon Goods since I learned about the company a few years ago. They provide a platform for uncommon artists and designers to sell their handmade wares while also highlighting their work spaces and studios so you can see where the products you’re about to purchase are made.
Uncommon Goods is a B Corporation which means they use the power of business to solve social and environmental problems. Ryan and I have consciously sourced inventory for our shop from other B Corporations since earning the B seal means the company meets a rigorous standard on a range of issues, including wage levels, environmental impact, and giving back to the local community. We can certainly get behind that especially in the season of giving.
Later this week, I’ll share details about that little statement tree by the door. You’ll never believe how easy it is to make!
