Floral Arrangements: Pink + Purple

Lately I've seen quite a few breathtaking floral arrangements that incorporate various shades of pink and purple. Stick with two or three different types of flowers for a simpler look, or combine additional shades for a more eclectic mix. Roses, peonies, and tulips are a few popular flowers that fall into this color range. This color combination is a perfect way to give any wedding or event a romantic feel.

Our Christmas Tree

Living in a three story walk-up does not necessarily mix well with getting a traditional, live Christmas tree. The walk up and down the stairs with a tree seems a little daunting, not to mention the pine needle mess that would inevitably ensue. So we've begun a little search for the "perfect" fake tree. If you've ever ventured into the world of fake Christmas trees, you know that they come in a seemingly endless variety of colors, shapes, and sizes. They come with white lights, colored lights, or no lights at all.

If you know anything about me then you know that I have trouble pulling the trigger when it comes to making almost any type of purchase. Weighing every single possible option is most certainly my strong suit. So I decided to give up my say in the search and leave it to my better half, Ryan, to make the final decision. We settled on a little Charlie Brown tree that couldn't be more perfect. Not only is it cute as can be, but it'll be a nice reminder to be thankful for the little things this holiday season!

Coral Decor

Coral is a color that I have noticed in many interiors and home products recently, and it's the perfect mix of pink and orange that can brighten almost any space. An ideal compliment for navy, aqua, or gray, coral provides a fresh pop of color to an otherwise monochromatic or neutral scheme. Incorporate this popular trend through accessories such as throw pillows, lamps, vases, artwork, or other accessories. Being that there are many different shades of coral, it's easy to find the shade that is perfect for your home.
