My heart literally stopped beating when I fell upon these pictures of Jill Sharp Brinson's adorable 1930's European-style cottage. Brinson is an interior designer, stylist and also happens to be the creative director over at Ballard Designs. For those of you who are not familiar with these fabulous stores, do yourselves a favor and click here, stat!
Jill's approach to holiday style is rustic, elegant, organic, simple and all around eclectic. Original Christmas decorating ideas are hard to come by and stumbling upon Jill's home proved to be incredibly refreshing. I obviously speak on behalf of design enthusiasts who have a penchant for all that is rustic, shabby chic & country.
In order for your house to feel like a home, it should be designed and decorated in such a way that it reflects who you are and the things you like. The spaces we live in are an extension of ourselves and ultimately have a great impact on the way we function and feel. When I look at Jill's cottage, I see a space that has been injected with loads of personality. From the natural-looking greenery, to the floating branch over the dining room table, to the silk-wrapped Christmas tree, to the ornament-filled lanterns and hanging acorns, each room provides something beautiful and interesting for your eyes to land on.
I'll definitely use this as inspiration next year!
