Hello friends. I hope your week is going great so far. I’m so happy to be joining my talented friends on Seasons of Home Christmas edition, hosted by my friend Kristen. We’re starting in the kitchen.
Even though I love neutrals and white, I’ve grown a little tired of them and so I’ve been adding more traditional colors which are making so happy. I will probably be adding some fresh greenery but it’s a little too early in the season and to be completely honest, it’s been raining non-stop here and the nursery I go to keeps their greens outdoors.
I did find some red tulips at the grocery store. Although tulips are considered a spring flowers, they are actually in season in the green houses right now up until March when the outdoor growers take over.
I found these plaid mugs a couple of years ago and I love digging them out every year for Christmas.
I bought a plain cake which had some pieces of chocolate on top. I took the chocolate off and added some sugared cranberries. Easy hack right?
I have an entire collection of plaid wrapping paper and bought another pattern the other day. I also have to let you in on a little secret, I keep these wrapped boxes in storage and take them out each year. I just change the ribbon to match the
theme of the year. 🙂
This is the photo I took while playing with some styling and the light. I usually end up liking my ‘test’ photo the most. I had placed a boxwood wreath over the stove but I didn’t want to take the risk of it getting damage by the heat so I’ll be looking for a faux one.
I also want to exchange this table and chairs for the winter and bring back my other table. The Blanket is from Wayfair
I think these chairs are perfect for summer but I think I want something a little warmer for the season. What do you think?
I’ll share any updates I make to the kitchen later on in the season. But for now, I hope you find some inspiration from all these lovely kitchens.
Thank you so much for stopping by.

Everything you do is lovely . I’m excited to see your tree this year! You are always my inspiration.
In my town (Bethlehem , Pa) everyone is doing Christmas early . Everywhere I look there are lights and trees up. I’m taking everything out this weekend . Are you going to be painting balls this year ? You are so talented . Again everything is beautiful.
Yes, why not switch out your chairs? You are quite clever, Lucy, storing your wrapped boxes for props.
Simple and beautiful! I love the use of plaids when they are not overly done don’t look like a log cabin theme.
I wonder if you might share information about those lovely pots on your stove? I love the blue one, but I’m specifically curious about the small red (enameled cast iron?) pot.
Love the simple cake hack!
Thanks so much!
Love the red and plaid. Where did you buy your rug under the table. I love it.
I love these classic colors – and they are so gorgeous the way they pop against your white kitchen Lucy! No matter what colors you accent with at Christmas, your photos are always so stunning that they make me want to choose that color palette for the next year:)
