This maternity leave guest post is by Caitlin of Sacramento Street.
Caitlin here from Sacramento Street – can you believe the holidays are right around the corner? I’m already feeling a bit behind! As we begin buying holiday gifts I always think of the usual ideas – stockings, the kids, what my girlfriends or hubby would love, but sometimes all of us don’t think about what we might want for our homes . . . it even happens to me. After the holidays, it’s all about redecorating and giving your home a little spruce from all the festivities – so why not add a few items to your holiday wish list to make it easier? I’ve pulled a few of my favorites from my go-to shops – some local, some small business and others are just my tried and true staples for the holidays. I hope a few of these items end up under your tree.
Keep reading for more details…1. Minted Art Prints: Have a blank wall that you need to fill? Minted has amazing art that won’t break the bank. And they even frame the pieces for you. There are hundreds of pieces to choose from so you won’t have a hard time finding a few that strike your fancy.
2 + 3. Candles: You can never have too many candles in your home. I have about one or two in each room. From votives, like these Serena & Lily beauties that will add a little glam to your holidays or this Mark & Graham silver candle that you can monogram (best present around!) your house will be glowing in no time.
4. Grid Shibori Pillow Navy: I’ve been a HUGE fan of Rebecca Atwood since she launched her collection. They are all handmade in New York. This fabric in particular is a traditional Japanese shibori technique – she folds the fabric into rectangles before dyeing it which then creates this beautiful gridded pattern. The two I have on my sofa always get noticed by guests.
5. Brass Elephant: It’s important to add in old elements to your home. They add depth and character. Whether you find the items yourself on trips, at a flea market, or buy them from vendors that travel the world – like Project Bly,it’s a way to have pieces that have stories behind them. This Brass figurine would sit on top of books on a bookshelf or in a kids room.
6 + 7. Maude Chair + Sheepskin Rug: These are my favorite chairs right now for clients. Add the sheepskin rug over it and it’s a cozy little seat for anyone in the house. You can also use the sheepskin rugs in a kids or a baby’s room – they are incredibly soft to sit on.
