Reinvent empty frames as illuminated sculptures with the addition of colored lights. For indoor use, standard vintage-style lights can be used to wrap wall-hung frames, placed near outlets. To help disguise extension cords, consider grouping several frames vertically, tucking the cord behind each frame, then into outlets near the bottom of the wall. For outdoor use, such as a repurposed wreath alternative placed on a front door, it's best to use battery-operated lights.
Put a natural yet unexpected twist on your holiday centerpiece with a birch log bundle wrapped with colored lights. When used on a formal dining table, it's best to use battery-operated versions; however, when placed on a sideboard or console table, plug-in lights work well since the cord can easily be tucked and hidden from view.
Give presents the personal touch with unique wrapping. Plain white boxes and bags are available from paper and crafts stores, and can be stenciled to great effect. If you don’t have time to stencil, wrap boxes with a light fabric paper.
This creative concept used a variety of clear glass jars and vases to display colorful ornament balls, red berries and tea-light candles. Starfish and sand-filled jars keep the beach in mind during cold winter weather.
From the walls and area rug to upholstery and art, the entire great room is layered with lavender tones. When combined, the overall effect is soft and light rather than overly rich and saturated. That’s the result of white accessories which help neutralize the purple tones of the lavender.
