Blue Christmas might not be the most uplifting holiday song, but our Blue Christmas room is certainly one beautiful display! Blue and white is one of my absolute favorite color combinations year-round so we always have a stunning selection of chinoiserie here at the shop. While not a classic Christmas palette like pine green and poinsettia red, blue is often used to represent winter so I like to think it fits in just right for Christmas and is a frosty, magical approach to the season! Add in some soft gold and champagne shimmer and this combo is a fresh pairing that is truly timeless.
Our rich and vibrant Twilight Room was the perfect spot for us to highlight this dreamy look. We like to keep our furniture in this room light and warm to offset the cool tones of our navy walls and it is the perfect mix for a beautifully blue display! The lavish velvet ribbons and touches of gold give a luxurious and elegant feel to the room from the tree, to the mantel, to the foliage atop the ottoman. A few of my favorite elements are the unexpected, mirrored stars and the frosted blue Christmas tree figurines. Both accents reflect the surrounding holiday lights and send it bouncing from display to display! These are also items that are universal and can be used in many different areas of a home to tie together a cohesive look.
I have loved searching for chinoiserie touches for the holiday season while shopping at Market. We are big fans of chinoiserie here at Nell Hill’s from ginger jars to pagoda figurines, to our signature pet bowls. I wanted to bring in a selection of chinoiserie ornaments to finish the year with the cutest blue and white yet! I hope you enjoy these darling tree additions as much as I do!
As the year is quickly coming to a close, I wanted to finish today’s blog post with a little message to you expressing my gratitude for sticking with us this year! Style at Home is a pleasure to write each week and I love being able to share our shop happenings with you. These last many months have presented unexpected challenges for us all and as we enter into Thanksgiving week, I am reflecting on how much your support has meant to all of us here at Nell Hill’s. My team and I are so grateful for you! Stay tuned with us next week for our final featured Christmas display from the shop, Classic Shiny and Bright! Until next time – Happy Decorating (and happy Thanksgiving!).
