Modern Flocked Christmas Tree

modern flocked christmas tree // @simplifiedbee #christmastree #holidaydecor

My teenage daughter is the first one in our family to pull out the holiday decor boxes and start decorating for the season. She adores having her own tree in her room. However, a large classic green Christmas tree with traditional trimmings wouldn’t have suited her petite teal bedroom or personality. On the search for the perfect tree, I teamed up with Treetopia. They known for delivering the widest variety and highest quality artificial Christmas trees – many which are space-saving! We narrowed it down to the Frozen Fir Flocked Christmas Tree (6′ tall) with a slim profile was just the right scale and design for her bedroom (or any small space for that matter). When trimmed with with pops turquoise, green and silver ornaments the look is chic, youthful and modern. In addition to the pops of color, natural elements – adorable forest creatures, wooden gingerbread houses and gilded pinecones add a touch of whimsy and warmth to the flocked Christmas tree. It’s just perfect! Wouldn’t you agree?

Remodelista: The Organized Home

disclosure: This post contains one or more affiliate links, which means Simplified Bee receives commission if you make a purchase using these links.

A stylish organized home is a cornerstone here at Simplified Bee. When I started my business and blog nearly a decade ago, I found a void between home organizers and interior designers. To bridge the gap and with the mission that homes could be orderly without sacrificing beauty, I set out to combine the disciplines of organization and design. The approach resonated with clients and readers.

Recently I received a copy of a newly released book, Remodelista: The Organized Home by Julie Carlson and Margot Guralnick of Remodelista. Their organizational philosophy is completely in line with my own – love! This beautiful book delivers hundreds of simple and clever tips for creating an orderly, inviting and beautiful home. The Remodelista duo covers every inch of a house – including rooms that get cluttered the most often – the entryway, kitchen, bedroom closet and laundry room.  To help inspire and teach, lists and charts with organizational tricks are accompanied by hundred of gorgeous photos. One of my personal favorites is Remodelista’s simple list of daily rituals:

I adore how this book advocates quality over quantity and stylish storage aids such as beautifully designed straw baskets, wall hooks and wooden peg rails. In addition, trays are a personal way I like to coral items and create visual order in kitchens, bathrooms and living rooms. Loving this kitchen example featured in the book:

This image of a beautiful organized fridge is so inspiring! Adding it to my own list of goals.
