Inspiration Board No. 93: New Tartan

20 December 2011

Today’s Christmas inspiration board is much darker than yesterday’s, but I like it! The nice thing about this scheme is that natural elements play a huge role — so, instead of buying tons of store-bought decor, collect pinecones and evergreen boughs, add in some shiny jewel tone ornaments and rich velvet or satin ribbon, and you’re well on your way!

I love the pinecones suspended with the ribbon! Simple but impressive.

I love this board, although I am a sucker for anything tartan!
