Stairs, inspiration from Pinterest

Staircases look beautiful decorated for Christmas! I don’t have a stairway
in my home to share with you, instead I’ll inspire you with some of my
recent pins.

The touch of lime in this garland is so pretty.

I love the deep swags and simple ribbon on this one.

If you don’t like the mess of using real greens indoors and have an artificial  tree that you don’t use anymore, you could repurpose the branches in wreaths and swags or something like this for your staircase.

There’s something so special about a tree at the bottom of a staircase, even a
small one. The touches of pink and the way the ornaments are hung
from the railing are so pretty

The next 2 pictures from Centsational Girl are just stunning! Don’t you love her garlands?

This picture is before she made over her staircase. The red in the garland is gorgeous.
 

A little more red inspiration from Martha Stewart.

From Pottery Barn, a trio of wreaths with burlap bows and silver bells, simple but festive!
Looking at beautiful pictures of stairways almost makes up for not having one. I can dream!
Is your decorating finished? I just finished my mantle today and have only a few more things left to do. That makes me happy!

Christmas decorating with Peacock feathers. Inspiration

 

If you want to make a unique decorating statement at Christmas, consider using peacock feathers. Their colors are the perfect complement to the soft blues, grays and aquas that are so popular now.

Imagine a bedazzling peacock feather wreath like this on your front door.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Or this stunner!
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 

Wrap your gifts with a feather accent.

 
 
 
 
 

 

 

 

Create attention grabbing vignettes.

 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 

Here’s how Beverly Hills designer Mary McDonald lavishly incorporates

peacock feathers in her holiday décor. The look is exotic but warm. I

love how the colors and textures working together draw you in to soak up

every drool worthy detail.

 

Spot the peacocks? Life size peacocks!

 

 

 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
What a tree topper!
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Orange paired with blue is an enchanting combination, lovely with peacock
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
feathers.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

I’d describe this as enchanting.

A somewhat traditional feel is created with the addition of fruit.

 

 

 

If you’re considering using peacock feathers, they can be pricy, but you

 

could probably find a reasonable site online.

 

Sharing at Pinning and Singing at 5 minutes just for me.

 

No, I won’t be decorating with peacock feathers, but I love this look. It’s

unexpected and fun!  I’ll be dreaming of a white Christmas this year.

 

Are you?
