Now that we’re well into the holiday season, the question is not whether the deck the halls, but how. For ideas that are as sophisticated as they are festive, we suggest studying Pinterest board “Holiday Decorating” by Maia McDonald Smith, founder of kids’ boutique Bitte.
With wooden bead trimmings on the mantle, vases filled with evergreen branches, and even Christmas trees on the wall (yes, wall!), the creative inspiration on the board goes far beyond the typical garland-on-the-banister decor. What’s more, it all looks chic and modern, without sacrificing any of the fun. One solid scroll-through of “Holiday Decorating” and you’ll have enough fodder to make every part of the home merry—and glean a few gift-wrapping and cake- and cookie-topping designs while you’re at it.
