I love the holiday season almost as much as I adore stylish cottage style homes. As you know I've been trying to pull my new home together on a realistic budget. It is getting there but I still have quite a long check list of items to purchase and design ideas to try! My goal is to create a chic but livable home for my family. I picked up a copy of December's BHG to read on my flight to Chicago last week. Welcoming, warm homes are right up my alley at this point in my life. I was drawn to this house, the holiday decorations and the easy going lifestyle featured.
