A Happy Holiday Home

This post is sponsored by Target. All opinions, as always are my own.

Twinkle lights are gleaming, the Salvation Army Bell Ringers are dancing and elaborate holiday window displays are popping up everywhere.  Fixtures of Christmastime in New York City make me emotional.  I can’t help but be overcome by the inherent goodness of the season.

Christmas in New York City

As they do every year, the kids have helped to pack shoeboxes of goodies to send off to other children.  And their own crayon inscribed wish lists are being carefully written. It is the togetherness intertwined in generations of love that brings a palpable sense of real life Christmas into our home.  I’m so thankful for our little lot in life.

Over the past few months, we’ve been updating our space, and Holiday entertaining is great motivation to inject cheer into our home.  We recommend functional items that mesh well into existing home design with versatility to live on past the season.

As soon as I set foot in Target’s NYC showroom to preview their Holiday collection, Nate Berkus won me over with his exclusive collection for Target.  Together with a few Target holiday items – we’re ready to entertain!  I love the casual elegance of white paired with metallic gold, and a bit of rustic wood to pull our Holiday look together.

Now on to the cooking! Buen Provecho and happy shopping!

  1. The photo of your guys is classic!

  2. I’m so excited for holiday fun. I see a few things I’m putting on my wish list!

  3. These are such beautiful suggestions! I love the idea of decorating for the holidays with non-traditional metal tones, I think its much more beautiful that way!

    • I love how the metallics still bring a Holiday sparkle and I LOVE how they can function in our space once the Holidays are over. Everything is so reasonably priced too. Especially with the great sales that they have going on at Target!

    LOVE, love, LOVING that furry pillow!

  5. I am DROOLING over your design aesthetic- I want every single item from your holiday home list!

  6. So cute and would not be the holidays without Target.

  7. Your list is basically everything I swooned over on a recent trip to Target. You’re right-it’s all pieces that look good past the holidays. The gold, the wood accents, and the fur!!! Basically, my Pinterest dream home 😉

    These were all elegant decorating ideas, but would also make for great gifts as well. Thank you for the ideas! =)
