The very first word that came to mind when I came across this house was "understated". The antithesis of all that is ostentatious, this home welcomes you with a bounty of warmth and comfort. Evidence of living shows up on every surface and every texture as you stroll up to the front door, open, and step into the living space... weathered walls, unfussy linens, and worn wooden table tops standstill. It is no surprise that while decorating for Christmas, the very same approach has been employed. Plenty of bits of nature form iconic shapes of interest, while multiple candles provide ambiance and extra lighting... such a serene and slightly whimsical look for Christmas, isn't it?
