We know, we know: Fall has only just arrived. But as soon as the temps drop a few degrees, our minds can't help but skip right past Halloween and Thanksgiving straight to the holidays. With the sweltering days of summer behind us, we're currently daydreaming about binge-watching heartwarming Nancy Meyers movies, listening to festive Mariah Carey songs on repeat, and sipping on hot beverages imbued with cinnamon.
Naturally, this scene just wouldn't be complete without some festive holiday decor in the background — and what sets the mood better than seasonally appropriate greenery? That said, we're looking beyond the typical six-foot-tall Douglas fir in the corner. Ahead, we're gaining inspiration from interiors that bring some lesser-known seasonal accents to the fore. Think earthy pine cones, aromatic rosemary, and structural eucalyptus.
1. Winter Foliage
5. Cedar Garland
Leave it to Sarah Sherman Samuel to inspire you to go all-out with traditional holiday greenery. Follow Samuel's lead and use a fresh cedar garland to frame an entryway mirror and curate a home that says happy holidays as soon as you walk through the front door.
6. Mini Evergreen Tree
We certainly don't have to tell you that evergreen trees are synonymous with the season. Rather than opting for a full-size version, make like Nina Holst of Stylizimo and place a mini tree atop a bookshelf for an understated approach to holiday decorating.
