Happy Friday at last! I just love a simple New England Christmas decor. For the past few years, I've returned to this style when decorating at Christmas. I really like how this style highlights the use of simple, natural materials. It's kind of a throwback to the frugal Yankee reuse of using whatever is around. So you will see New England homes accessorized with objects like an old wooden sled, fishing basket, skates, or other items that add a bit of flair or wow to their front door. Lighting? A single white candle with a clear bulb in each window is the only choice -- it's a must. A spotlight or two on the front door highlights the wreath perfectly at night and guides those carolers to your front door for hot cocoa -- yeah, right! Okay, so maybe it's just the dog walker! These designs are often asymmetrical-- you know, informal.
How do you decorate your front door?
Have a terrific weekend!
