I was just talking to someone very special in my life and she was referring to all the lovely colors of the holidays and how they affect her. One sweet thing she shared with me was how the metallic of the ornaments, lights and glitter remind her of the warmth of the sun. I thought, as I was listening, how can we make this last?
During the holidays, I keep my lights low so that the tree lights up the room. Next to the tree, I keep a chair making it simple to cozy up to the glow of the lights and read my favorite interior design magazine.
An easy way to continue this relaxing, festive style is to make a nook where your tree used to be. Hang a metallic pendent light and install a dimmer, so that the lighting may be adjusted to simulate the glow of the tree. Hang over your favorite cozy chair and keep the warmth of the holidays year round.
