Pink Holiday Decor

Christmas decorating with pink

This festive living room featured on Poppytalk had me thinking of how much I love the color pink during the Christmas season. Simply a pale hue of red, pinks are fabulous paired with blues, greens and golds as a palette for any of the upcoming holidays. Certainly not traditional, pink holiday decor can be playful, elegant and sophisticated. Take a look at a few inspiring pink holiday decor perfect for your Thanksgiving tablescape, Christmas vignettes and News Year’s Eve dinner party.

Organized Closet on a Budget

black and white closet using Ikea // walk-in closet

An organized space is like a breath of fresh air. It calms us. For most, wardrobe closets can be some of the most unorganized spaces in their home. Therefore I always recommend closet systems to help keep reach in and walk-in closets organized.  These systems can be pricey, so when I stumbled across this gorgeous black and white organized closet – done on a serious budget – I had to share it with you.  Nina Holst of Stylizimo created a beautiful walk-in-closet using items mostly from Ikea. The DIY shoe rack created with a series of Ikea’s BYGEL towel rods and spray painted gold is brilliant!

California Adventure Park at Sunset #disneyland #mickeymouse

On a personal note, it’s been quite the week! We took a last minute family vacation to Disneyland (aka the happiest place on earth). It had been a few years since our last visit with Mickey, so the kids were over the moon to say the least. This time around was extra special too because we could all ride California Screaming together. Such a thrill for my youngest. I’ve posted a few pictures of the trip on Instagram, but wanted to share my favorite taken in the early evening at the California Adventure Park (above).

Happy Friday!

Cristin

Kitchen Pantry Ideas

gray butler's pantry #kitchens

A beautiful, functional butler’s pantry. It’s a space most of us only dream of having. While not all homes have the space or layout for a large butler’s pantry, most kitchens can incorporate a pantry. They can be designed in a variety of ways and sizes. Some are located in a side closet and separated by a door, while others are in a hallway just off the kitchen. One of my favorite pantry style is built-in and a central part of the kitchen itself.

Here are just a few kitchen pantry ideas …

This built-in pantry by Brayer Design has the look and feel of a refrigerator. Love the racks on the cabinet door for spices and smaller items.

Here is a similar pantry by Leslie Ann Abbott that is flush with the refrigeration units.

kitchen pantry under the stairs

The space underneath a stairwell sometimes goes unused. In this kitchen by Mark Williams Design Associates a clever and very stylish pantry is created giving a little more storage.

Spotted on Pinterest, I love this pantry with arched cabinetry doors. Makes a lovely architectural statement.

A hallway can also be a great place for a pantry. Love this one by Karen Swanson. The colorful cabinetry and patterned wallpaper is so playful next to the all white kitchen.

Inspired? Me too.

happy decorating,

cristin
