the decor fix : holiday home tour / LL pine on snow canvas
One of the things I love most about this season is the decking-the-halls part of Christmas. Jesus truly is the reason for the season and I know it's not all about the muss and fuss of making a space beautiful, but for someone that is creatively inspired by spaces, getting to see all these homes in their festive best delights me to my creative core. And I think at the very heart of this holiday decorating is the effort of hospitality. We want to make our homes appealing and cozy, to welcome in our friends and families and communities, giving them a place to feel celebratory and joyful. And you know what I say to that? HOORAY!!!!

I also really love getting to see all the various styles of decorating. It's so fun to see how people's personalities come to life in the way they decorate their homes. Cozy, quirky, moody, fancy, rustic, and everything in between. I also love that this isn't about money spent or even loads of time. So many of these home tours I've had the privilege of being a tiny part of are more about working with what you have, in the time you have, and throwing in a few creative DIYs to round it all out.

Paige pinned the pine on snow postcard from the LL abstract postcard set
on to her beautifully curated board. Actually, it seems that Pine on Snow Watercolor ended up being a blogger favorite this year! (You can see it over at Restoration House Interiors
, too!) And I'm thrilled. I love creating those abstracts as part of the LL Canvas Shop
, and it's really satisfying for me to see those pieces in different homes and styled in so many different ways!
And on that note, just a little thank you to everyone who has welcomed my art into their home this year. That truly is the best part of my job – I LOVE seeing you love it, and making these pieces your own. Thank you thank you thank you from the bottom of my heart!
I hope this little sampling of holiday homes leaves you feeling inspired and expectant for what this season holds for you. Whether you're going to be entertaining large groups or snuggled in as a cozy few, my prayer is that you are enjoying these moments in a space that feels like "you." A very festive you.

And if you do, better pour yourself some hot cocoa first – you're about to get lost in dreamy lands of garland and love!
