This year, Christmas feels really extra special to us. It’s the first time our first born daughter, Inès, now in college, will come back “home” to us for the holidays. I’m feeling festive, but above all, I’m looking forward to a slower pace, Pjs days, Netflix binging, laughs and random cake baking sessions with my tribe; my sister (along with miss Kira!) will be visiting us as well, so it’s going to be a busy memory-making holiday break this year!
I’ve started decorating for the holidays, and this year, everyone voted for a real Christmas tree! So here is our home, getting ready for a very special holiday season.
Since I was busy in the living room, I finally spent some time arranging my gallery wall so that the TV is completely hidden when not in use. I finally added the signed Scissors print Toronto illustrator and printmaker Alana Cavanagh had kindly sent me a few weeks ago. Pretty cool, heh?
Remember my post last year about Fab Goose? This year, Valentina came up with some gorgeous colors for her paper trees, and since I’m really into denim lately, these ice blue and dark blue colors really speak to me; I also really like the claret color one, don’t you? These lovely trees are now available at SF MoMA if you want to add a few around your home for the holidays.
I also came across this simple tutorial to wrap my gifts this year with some denim leftover fabric. You can follow the same tutorial and adapt it with any fabric your like, isn’t it clever? Plus it’s eco-friendly, because you can always reuse the fabric after Christmas for other crafts.
