While we have our favorite ornaments and accessories we bring out year after year, it's fun to change things up a bit and style them in different ways, or occasionally add new pieces to keep things fresh. One thing however remains constant: our desire to keep the overall look clean, simple and uncluttered. We had fun this year with a bit of ribbon in two gorgeous shades of green. We used them to perk up oversized mercury glass ornaments, to hang pairs of our moss wreaths, and to dress up vintage metal buckets with old-fashioned silver tinsel trees. We also used them to hang ornaments on our tree. And because ribbon is not terribly expensive (especially when purchasing by the yard) we recommend getting a really nice quality fabric or grosgrain ribbon if you can find it. We used about 15 yards total. A really simple, affordable, and customizable way to get a festive and cohesive holiday look in your home!
We have cultivated a passion for architecture and design since we were kids. Fortunately we embrace a similar aesthetic and see eye-to-eye on design which has culminated in the style we've termed Modern Cottage. With our combined years of experience in real estate, remodeling, design, development, and construction, we have honed our expertise in Modern Cottage design, and currently create Modern Cottages near Seattle, Washington.
