Aside from decorating the inside of the house, we also make sure the outside is decorated as well. One thing we do every year is put up evergreen garland around the garage and windows. The best part? It lights up! This allows the house to look festive during both day and night. In addition, by centering the Christmas tree in the middle window and flanking it with flameless candles, it creates a picture-like effect for those looking from the outside. You can create a similar look by centering your tree in front of a window, making it a focal point for your home. No matter the size of your window, you can easily create a picture-like image that will entrance those both in and out of your home.
To the right is a picture I took of my local lake on a sunny day. I love how the rays of the sun shine on the water, while above is blue sky and sunshine. You have to be in the right place at the right time to get a shot like this, but when you do it’s so worth it! This is the type of photo that would be great to frame and display in any area of your home. You can also use the colors in the photo as an inspiration when chosing a theme for your accessories. As I’ve said in a previous post, you can get great inspiration from the colors found in nature. Have a local body of water? Whether a lake, ocean, marina, or creek, you can get a great photo of nature to inspire your decor!
