  6. I love your fresh take on holiday decorating – the colors are just yummy. Everything looks so festive and inviting. I used to have a smaller version of the German pyramid you have. Ed had it when he was a child, but over the years it began to fall apart. I still have some of the pieces and hope to use them to make something with someday. Seeing yours made me smile.

    1. Thanks so so much Diane. Mine actually keeps falling apart in some spots too, but I keep glueing it along the way. It was a wedding present when we got married in Germany and it is very special to us.

  7. WOW! it is insanely beautiful julia!!!!!! your dining room!!!!!!! OH MY LORD i love it! so glamorous and feminine and beautiful! and of course i love all the turquoise accents!!!!!!

    1. Thanks my friend. Lilly thinks it’s a princess chandelier or Ice Queen chandelier and she loves eating fancy.

    1. It’s a total obsession of mine. Thanks so much Sarah!

  8. Julia, I LOVE all of your color-infused holiday decor. It is so beautiful! And that cross wrapping paper is awesome and makes such a statement. Beautiful job, friend!

    1. Thank you so much Lindsay and thanks so much for the chance to participate in your awesome series again. It’s so much fun

  9. Julia, just when I think your home cannot become more beautiful…you prove me wrong! I love the greek key style pillows from Lowes, I have rotated them in and out of the rooms in my home for a couple years-they seem to be perfect anywhere! Your posts always inspire me, thank you. Warm regards from upstate NY, and many blessings to you and your precious family.

    1. Yes I agree those pillows are so versatile and I rotate them too. I got such a good deal on them when I actually bought them for $2 each. And thank you so so much.

  10. WOW Julia. You really out-did yourself. I love everything. My eye immediately went to those four pictures with paint stripes. So pretty! I also really really love your door hanger with tassels. And the garland over the dining lamp. Swoon!! Everything is just so beautiful!!

    1. Thanks so much my friend, you always leave the sweetest comments and they make me smile.

  16. Love! You are a gal after my own heart. I wanted to do a “colorful” theme this year and it just fell by the wayside. But if I did one I would have wanted it to look like yours. I love what you did. Looks so modern but still festive! The hanging glass ornaments over the dining table were just brilliant. Congrats!

    1. Thanks so so much Kathleen, and I always want to dress as colorful as you and then my plans fall apart ๐Ÿ˜‰ Maybe we need to mix!

    1. I’ve ventured away from the monochromatic Christmas which I have done for years and still love so much as well but I feel like my kids really adore the colored Christmas decor and it’s all about making them happy right now when they are still young, isn’t it?

  22. Very pretty. I love all the gorgeous colors.

  23. I don’t know what I love more – the stunning chandelier or gorgeous miniature tree! Beautifully decorated!

  25. I’m invited for the holidays right?! Because this gorgeousness is so chic & cozy & I just want to curl up with a cocktail(s) & cookies. Also love seeing the German tradition shout-out! We got some serious G flowing thru our veins over here.

    xoxo

    1. I’d have you over any time. It would make my entire holiday season actually! Of course there has to be some G in your family ๐Ÿ˜‰

  26. Wow…everything looks so beautiful! I love all the different trees everywhere! I wanted to try putting the greenery on my dining chandelier but I am worried the needles will fall onto the table…do you find that happening?

    PS Love that you rescued an outdoor kitty, melts my heart!

    1. Haha Cindy, I’m assuming that at some point the needles will fall but I don’t even care. I can easily remove it and put up more ๐Ÿ˜‰
      And thanks so much. I have 3 more kitties which are all rescues. Love them!

    1. Oh that canvas tree is a must. I don’t know if I can justify bringing it back next year again, but I just love it so much. And thank you!

  29. So gorgeous Julia! Love every detail my friend, and your photography is amazing!!

    1. Thanks Shavonda, I used to dread taking the photos and now I’m enjoying it and it’s become my second favorite thing after decorating ๐Ÿ˜‰

  38. Julia – I audibly gasped when I got to your table. It’s stunning. Everything is. I love the trees – and those stars are awesome. I made a few of those last year and they were time consuming. I’d love your tips to make them fast (is it even possible?).
