Look closely at this photo (below), if you know my dining room, you’ll notice something different. The backs of my dining chairs are black and white polka dots instead of stripes.
That’s because when I was choosing the fabric for the backs of my dining chairs I couldn’t decide between stripes and polka dots so I ended up not choosing and doing three of each.
In the end, I preferred the stripes but that’s because in order for the polka dots to really look good the chairs should have been black and not white. The fabric should have had a black background with white polka dots to be even better.
But, this season I pulled them out for the photo because they happened to match my outfit.
Here’s what you normally see:
And here’s the rest of my living room decorated for this season. I don’t normally have a tree in here but last year I bought a faux green one and this year a white faux flocked tree and since Terreeia opinion on Christmas decor is that there can never be enough, so I installed a tree in here too:
Love my oversize flower art (left), see more flower pieces by James Wiens here.

My sisters joined in on the fun wearing holiday sweaters with reversible sequins that you smooth out with your hand back and forth and it changes from naughty to nice :
The above sweaters are sold out, but The Gap still has a fun selection of ‘flippy sequins’ tops, My nephews have a bunch of t-shirts reversible sequins on them and they are so fun! Such a fun gift idea!
Is your house decorated for Christmas?
PS. I have a question about re-gifting. I love Marie Kondo’s philosophy which is that the act of giving or receiving a gift sparks joy and then if it’s not for you, pass it on to someone else who would love it!
What do you think?
