Pottery Barn Inspiration



My mail box is overflowing with catalogs lately, and my bedside table is piled high with pretty inspiration that I can't help but look through and dream about. It is too early for Christmas decorating, but not too early for some new ideas to form. The Pottery Barn catalog is one of my favorites for holiday inspiration.

I was especially drawn to the ornaments with the natural looking elements and a bit of sparkle.

Simple glass balls in red, green and gold, have always been a favorite of mine, but what inspired me about these, was that they are hanging by twine. l love the contrast of the shiny glass and the rustic twine.

I think a big, red burlap bow is going to find its way into my Christmas decor this year - it makes such a pretty, simple statement against the white fence.

Classic Christmas

Nostalgia Christmas


The themed trees are such a delight to look at and inspire towards. I love my tree with all its memories and keepsake ornaments, but there is something beautiful and sigh inducing about a professionally decorated, magazine worthy, themed tree.

How many days until Christmas decorating begins?

Have a wonderful weekend!

  1. Loved the ideas Vicki . . . fun to dream and also try to replicate some of them.
    Let's have some fun! (Burlap in all colors seems to be big in the bow department this year.)

  2. I love my PB catalogs! it takes me longer to read through a PB Catalog than a People magazine!!! laura

  3. I adore PB and their catalog. Have picked up a few of their things for the holidays already.

  4. Looks like you're getting a head start on the Holidays..Mentally anyhow..Thanks for sharing Vicki..I,too, love Pottery Barn.

  5. Definitely lots of pretty inspiration. xo Laura

  6. Although my tree will never, ever look like those in the catalog, I do enjoy looking at the pretty decorations! I usually hold off decorating until Thanksgiving. Dishes washed and put away then drag out the Christmas decor!

  7. I'm trying, trying to hold off till December 1st. Right now, I'm gathering ideas like you and trying to work on some crafts items.

  8. Great inspiration. We normally start decorating the day after Thanksgiving, but since Thanksgiving is later this year, we will probably start decorating the week before.

  9. I always love Christmas inspiration! I'm going with lots of pops of red this year.
