We decided on a lovely white tree this year; it was the perfect choice. It really fits the color palette of the rest of our apartment, since I wanted to keep the color scheme monochromatic. I used gray, silver, and pearl-colored ornaments. Living in a loft is basically like decorating one large space.Our loft is decorated in a mid-century modern style, with classic infusion. Overall, we keep a minimalist standard as far as accessories and furniture. Take a look at some of our holiday decor .
One of my favorite ornaments that I bought is this charming polar bear. I got this at a shop in Mystic, Connecticut. I love how he looks like he is balancing on one of the tree branches. I try to make the animals look real, not just hang on the tree.
Our tree is only 4 1/2 feet tall, but we gave it extra height with this simple white end-table.
A glittered wreath on my large mirror, with a little bird nestled perfectly!
More birds on the tree! I love this adorable white porcelain bird. My mother bought us two of these.
On my table, I have a silver leaf platter filled with pine cones, and sprinkled with silver glittered balls.
On the coffee table I created a little scenery of snow, flocked trees, and this little twig rodent!
I found this amazing Pottery Barn SILVER-PLATED Santa; it retails for $125.00, and he weighs 20 pounds. I found him at Savers for $19.99. YES, this is a true story. How chic is that Santa? He is standing proud next to my silver ball tree that I made.
This is my mini vintage silver tinsel tree, decorated with light blue and silver balls of different sizes.
A great shot of the dining room table.
Lina folding chair. I might be picking this up; maybe after the holidays, but how chic? This comes from Design Within Reach. It's an Italian-made chair with an extremely durable steel frame. It can be used everyday, or tucked into a closet for storage when you don't need to use it. I think it would make a great accent chair, in an office or study.
