One King's Lane Stylish Holiday

I received a One King's Lane Holiday 'Catalog' in the mail the other day and it was filled with fun and festive photos for the holidays so I thought I'd snap some photos of my favorite pages and share.   This is my first time receiving a mini booklet from them in the mail.  As their sales are limited and numbered to a few days at a time, this is more of an idea book and nothing is actually for sale.  Still uber fun to look through. 

"set a warm and welcoming mood with pretty details such a flowers...choose one color family for an artful arrangement"

Linen towels in the powder room add a special touch for guests.  Swap out white for a flax linen for extra flair. 

Fill a guest suite with the same amenities that they would find in a hotel.  Leave them wanting for nothing.  Make their stay feel warm and cozy with a stack of blankets, extra pillows, a water carafe.  A small table in the bath can hold jewelry or fragrances.  A desk in the bedroom can give guests a convenient space to write a note. 

Beautifully wrapped gifts can become the display. 
The booklet provides handy tips for how to wrap a beautiful package and ribbons to have on hand to do so!

Think outside the box when gift giving so that your gift is tailored perfectly for the recipient. 

"One table. Three Ways
Your dining table will be the center of attention this season.  Create a dramatic, distinct look for each holiday meal by putting a twist on traditional decor."

Choosing one large scale print makes it easier to blend in accents that have smaller patterns. 

Bold and Bright- selecting deeper shades of blue and red and adding in a touch of gold led to a dramatic and festive palette on which to play with a bold pattern. 

Exotic Escape- "our resolution for a New Year's table?  Take guests on an around the world trip.  The inspiration was India."  The key is strategic texture and color. 

Forced narcissus bulbs scattered among votives infuse your entry with a light, sweet scent.

Deck your halls with greenery!  The moment you bring greenery into your home, the color and scent announce that the holidays have arrived. 

unusual vessels- this is the perfect time to show off new or vintage objects and vessels that you love! 

Ornaments are the quickest and easiest way to fill your house with cheer, and they're not to be confined to a tree!  Find any place that needs a hit of color and shine and hang a few or a few dozen for the season! 

Fruit and candlelight.   There's no quicker way to add ambiance and make everyone look great over the holidays than with candlelight.  Clustered pillar candles make an instant centerpiece, while tapers can be arranged sparingly or in groups to suit your style. 

Arrange fruits and nuts on a huge antique bowl on the table.  Layer the trays for volume. 

I thought this was a fun little guide!  It won't be long before these holiday decorations will be adorning our mantles!
