This lovely Nordic home from Loppelilla, has all of my favorite elements for holiday decor inspiration. Wood, antlers, fur and branches are elegantly styled amidst the crisp white palette of this rustic home- giving it that natural wintery feel I love so much!
OH, WHAT A WEEK! I hardly managed to get through it without pulling all of my hair out. The holidays at a boutique design agency are truly hectic- the invitations, menus, banners... so many events to design for, so little time! But now it's time to plan my own fun... like a Christmas getaway! I've been browsing around One Fine Stay- a vacation site that showcases beautiful homes to live in while the owners are out of town. I've always wanted to do something like this! The only difficult thing about it will be deciding which place to visit. There are so many gorgeous homes to choose from! Here are some of my favorites so far...
I can see it now- the hard time my friends are going to give me about today's post. I am notoriously anti-cheesecake. Never have liked it, never will. However, my hope is that you all disagree with my taste (just this one time) and make these this Easter Sunday... because they are just too stinkin' adorable!

Designer Justina Blakeney has come up with a wonderful way to add personalized accents to a holiday tabletop. Using jars and bottles of various shapes and sizes, take a sharpie and hand draw simple designs onto natural colored packing tape. I especially love the effect it has on the wine bottle. This could be a beautiful custom place setting & take-home gift for your guests! I'm not convinced my finished pieces would look quite as sharp as hers, as I admittedly have pretty dreadful hand writing. So I would have to practice my designs on scrap paper before diving into decorating. But I really love the look of these pieces, so I'm determined to use this diy soon! I encourage you to check out the rest of her blog as well- lots of fun crafty ideas!
Happy Humpday everyone... or better yet... Happy Holidays! That's right, because it's here. No use in denying it, folks! Have no worries, More Design Please is here to help! Today I'm presenting Part One of a series I'll be doing over the next few months for the Holidays! Gift-giving can be quite a hassle for some of us- so I've started collecting some ideas/images that'll give you a jump-start! And of course, the DIY's will be coming very soon too ;)
