A Pottery Barn Christmas

frosted_look

On a recent trip to the mall, my chestnut praline latte and I went to visit Pottery Barn for Christmas decor ideas. I left with a million ideas and not enough money in my bank account to do them all. Between the carefully placed candles and faux Christmas trees and the twinkly lights strung perfectly on a mantle, I was positive in the future I would need to marry a millionaire for my decorating fantasies to come true.

I think we all look at these stores and wonder two things: 1) Who has the talent to design these gorgeous displays? and 2) Who can afford to buy the things in the displays? The answer to both is very few people. I believe in dreaming, however, and if I want a big house to decorate for Christmas, then so help me I’m going to get it! When we stop dreaming, we stop living.

The thing I love about stores like these is that they remind me of why I work so hard. I’m working towards a better future and in the mean time, I can just admire the work of someone else. Consider the cable knit and faux fur throws. How cozy are they? And the adorable Eiffel Tower Martini glass? I just love it! The subtle touches of “snow” and “ice” on the branches of each of the trees with the lights shining on them remind of a winter sunrise. These small touches make all of the difference in the world. They make your house a home.
