(crate and barrel ‘now and forever‘ collection)
I am completely obsessed with the image above.  The colors, texture, light and sparkles are so fabulous and this image has quickly become inspiration for my home this holiday season.  I love how there are natural elements incorporated through the laser-cut wood trees and pine cones which are then juxtapose by the metallic accents.   
Sadly I cannot afford to walk into Crate and Barrel and purchase all of these pieces (it would be over $300) so instead I am crafting up some elements on my own.  I spruced up a bag of pine cones with gold and silver accents similar to the image above and restyled many items I already own to go with the theme.  Finally, I am adding in some red accents to bring some richness and pops of color to the look.  I will take some photos of my house to show you what I was able to put together but I must say I am very happy when I walk into my house every night and see so much sparkle and shine.
