Inspired By: Change or Consistency?

Inspired By: Change or Consistency?

When I was looking through my Christmas tour posts from years past to share in this post, one tour I didn’t share on my list was this one from way back in 2013! I thought it would be fun to have a little five year flash back.

At least it is kind of fun for me to look back on some of my earlier tours because it reminds me that while we are in a completely different house, a lot of things sure stay the same!

Even though in blog or instagram-land “changes” in a home seem to be the norm (and I love change!), I can see in many ways I’m actually quite comfortable with consistency and “sameness.” I might even prefer it. While I love to evolve, I don’t tend to change my taste or style dramatically over time.

I may be in a different house, but I always feel at home with a familiar sense of simplicity. I tend to keep many of the same furnishings. I still use many similar elements in every house. And, I still use the same type of Christmas decor I’ve always used (garlands, greenery, wreaths, twinkle lights). I guess as much as I thrive on change, I feel most at home with consistency.

I shared a few photos from my 2013 Christmas house tour in this post today and SEE MORE OF THE TOUR HERE >>> 2013 Christmas tour here.

And if you want to see my current little house, this was last year’s Christmas tour.

Stay tuned for scenes from THIS year’s Christmas house, coming up soon! 

Do you think you are more likely inspired by change or consistency in your home?

Do you change up your Christmas decor every year or tend to stick with familiar classics?

Hello, friends! Who is feeling festive? I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving! I’ve been seeing Christmas decor all over Instagram and trees on all the cars in Seattle. We are a little behind the times at our house, so the photo above is from last year, but we have been listening to Christmas tunes all weekend so that’s a start! :) And today we brought out the first of our Christmas decor, so we’ll be festive here in no time.

I have a couple things to share today that will hopefully help or inspire you (and me!).

First off, if you’re looking for a great wreath, Christmas tree, tree skirt, decorations or other seasonal item, we have an ADORABLE shop you can find by clicking HERE or the banner below.

And last but not least, what’s your Christmas style?

We keep it pretty simple at our house. But my goal is to never try to keep things so minimal during the holidays that we don’t even sense the wonder of Christmas in our home. I always try to see Christmas through the eyes of a child (even though we don’t have little people around any more!) so that often makes me bring out a little more sparkle or special decor than I might otherwise. But you know what? That magic invites us all get in the Christmas spirit.

Have you seen our Christmas videos from the past two years?
