Gwen Hefner (aka @themakerista) mixed monochromatic and metallic ornaments for a sophisticated look in her library. (Love this wall color? Consider this a sneak peek into a story on Gwen in our January/February issue!)


@frenchlarkspur brings a touch of France to Illinois with vintage French stockings, hung from a minimalistic wooden ladder.


Color is the name of the game for @abeautifulmess’ Christmas tree. The gradient from golden yellows to silvery pinks is a whole lot of beautiful!


It's time!! @inspiredbycharm #ABMholidayspirit

The classic wreaths on the windows of @mamawatters (Amanda Watters)’s Missouri home are straight from your favorite storybook or Christmas movie.


we're inside a snow globe today! ❄️☃

Who needs a mantel? Michigan-based bloggers @freshexchange (Megan and Mike Gilger) hung their family’s stockings from the ladder with care. Plus, the garland is handmade.


Twinkly lights and a roaring fire create an inviting scene at the Indiana home of Whitney Utesch (@carpendaughter).


I should probably keep her from staring directly into the fire, but I think it's important to let her live her best life. #cat

@thefauxmartha (Melissa Coleman) proves that less is more. Her loyal followers are on the hunt for the red stand she bought last year from a local Minnesota tree farm.


Gwen (@themakerista) counters her traditional Christmas tree with this fun “kids' tree” decorated with a blend of family ornaments and character Hallmark ornaments her children love. Can you spot Frozen’s Anna?


@mandimakes (Mandi Johnson of Ohio) ditched a hand-me-down tree from her parents and went white this year. Colorful ornaments and garland reflect Mandi’s fun personal style.


It’s all about atmosphere. The lights of @amyrosethielen’s tree cast a warm glow on the earthy wood in her Minnesota home.
