Easy Hike in Switzerland in the Bernese Oberland

For those of you that regularly follow my blog, you may know that I visited Switzerland in the Fall of 2016.  I have not yet had a chance to write about my trip because I love writing about Fall and Christmas decorating. 
Now, though, in the middle of Winter, I thought it would be a perfect time to write about my trip!

Let's look at some of my favorite looks.  I put the Actress' name and designer on some of the pictures, but I confess, I became tired, so they are not on all!

A French Blue and White Tablescape

Remember earlier when I said I had the post-holiday blues?
I wasn't kidding.
So this blue and white tablescape seemed appropriate for my mood.

Winter Blues...

Do you get the Winter Blues?
I do. Every year I get them.  The big post-Christmas let down. 
The house seems so plain since removing all of the Christmas decor.
Let's look at some blue inspirational photos to lift up our mood!

Pretty Decor is BACK in 2017

Let's talk about some design trends coming back for 2017, specifically, the return of pretty decor.
Pretty is timeless and never goes out of style. Pretty is soft, soothing, feminine. Pretty is not bold, jarring, or unsettling.
I predict we will be seeing the return of more pretty traditional decor this year.  In a year when people feel uncertain about the future, people will be looking for comfort and coziness in their homes.  They want to feel safe. But it is 2017, so it will be pretty traditional decor - with a twist!
