Jewel Toned Vintage



When I spotted this box

of vintage ornaments at the Goodwill

I knew they would be perfect with our neutral palette...






I started adding some other elements with the jewel tones

for a festive holiday look...







I mixed in some of my coastal pieces as well...










I softened the room with lighter pastels

to add some warmth to our barn doors...








and a cozy throw...









My mama loves her Santa Claus collection

so I added this old one that was a pale 

 velvet butter yellow...









I added a starfish to his robe...









I loved the simple holiday touches

with a bit of old...



After the holidays Mr. Dior and I have decided

that we will start with a new fresh color for the

inside of our home.

We have loved the years of our warm brown

color but we have some new projects on the horizon

that we will be sharing.






For those of you who asked

this is the code for the paint in

our living room and entry way.

{Vista Paint}

I will be linking up this week with

the lovelies in blogland.








Wishing all of you a very blessed

and joyous holiday season...

Much love to all of you

It's all gorgeous! Yay for new paint!!! No more xxx brown!!! LOL!!

Burlap Luxe said...

Beautiful find Kate, vintage has so much more interest to your rooms decor.
I love the blue with the natural tones of the feathers. The blue when mixed with the coral and shells brings you close to Southern California beaches. You have created a rich coastal holiday adding the blue of the sea.
Just so amazingly pulled together.

Will be excited to see the paint redo after the new year. I am excited to see how your walls set a new back drop for all you create.

A Joyeux Noël
