    I just love the decorative look of candy sticks – they are not so popular here in Poland, but if I don’t get them anywhere in a store, then I will try to make by myself, because they are sooo pretty.

    Thank you for the link, I appreciate it! Hope you are staying warm! Merry Christmas!


    To Answer Jessie, yes, the candy canes are around a tall pillar candle, I secured them with a rubberband and used ribbon to hide it.

    Oh my gosh, I can’t get enough of these beautifully styled photos. It’s a great source of inspiration. I usually just file things away in my mind and when I’m ready to redo a table, bookcase or wall, somehow, voila, I somehow know what to do with all my things for an arrangement that speaks to me and makes me feel my home is a great place to be in.

    Oh, just gorgeous!! I love your interior styling group, Holly – even though I have been a bit of a slacker myself and haven’t contributed for a while, there is so much visual inspiration to be found there, I just love it! That first group of shots you chose is so cute with all of the peppermint-candy stripes :)

    Hope your week is off to a good start! xo Laura

    I love looking through the interior styling flickr group. There’s always so much inspiration and design goodness. My favorite out of the lovely photos you’re featuring is the ladder up the side of the books. So cute! I also really like the *R* filled with ornaments. What a great idea!

  • Reply Kristin Johnsen December 21, 2010 at 2:58 am

    GREAT stuff – I particularly liked the letter A atop the books – with the small ladder leading up to it – and the Red “R” with ornaments – wonderful! Thanks so much for sharing all of these – fun places all!

  • Reply Kristin Johnsen December 21, 2010 at 2:59 am

    OOOPS! Should have read Jenn’s comments first – and just could have said “ditto”!

  • Reply Christine December 21, 2010 at 3:40 am

    WOW. talk about inspiration, such beautiful images! I’m going to have to peruse through this group asap!

    I love the little ladder going up the pile of books – how adorable!

  • Reply happy mrs c December 21, 2010 at 4:36 am

    So lovely, I adore the soft lighting used in these photos. They are truly amazing. I live the white books with the ladder and the letter A.

    gorgeous interiors.. i love the great big R and all the little details

  • Reply Lisa December 21, 2010 at 10:53 pm

    These are all just so wonderful! I can’t wait to try to make a granny square wreath — I’m working on a scarf right now, perhaps the squares can hang out on a wreath until after Christmas! And the star anise is just the most perfect, brilliant touch on that tray.

    Oh I love them all!

    Hi Holly, I love SWAH. Did you also know about the store RESTORED? Same concept, but existing for a longer period. Very lovely people too. X Ellen
