Who doesn't wish for more counter space in a kitchen? This little nook with an extra cabinet is a place to stash often-used oils and vinegars, fruit, veggies and just about anything. A hanging pot holder above makes the space extra functional, stashing cookware within reach but not taking up room in cabinets or shelves.
To update a wreath for the winter, use white paint and fake snowflakes, like New York City interior designer Eduardo Rodriguez of The Designer Pad did for this wintery tablescape. He upcycled pinecones, which are dipped in white paint for a shimmery effect, and arranged them in terracotta pots that he painted white and gray. The rest of the pots hold colorful candies and cookies for a casual Scandinavian-inspired winter get-together.

Pinecones and dried pomegranates can help decor last well beyond the holidays.

She covered the cylinders with pieces of sweaters.
A pair of round coffee tables with durable concrete tops over an open metal frame are a play on the round shape of the globe chandelier above. The tables allow good traffic flow in and out of the seating area and offer a place to rest a drink, display books and hold a ceramic white pot with fern.
The Colorado Blue Spruce is one of the most iconic evergreens associated with holiday decorating. Commonly raised for sale as a Christmas tree, the Colorado Blue Spruce must have full sunlight to thrive, and also requires a great deal of watering.
