Welcome…… Christmas and the festive season with modern and traditional holiday decor. Tis the season……..Decorating outdoors is always a treat to see, especially when accented against black doors.
With a layered palette of forest greens, soft silvers, and hints of brown and muted red, this front entryway has a festive vibe that's also subtle enough to last all winter long. A vibrant B.C. cedar garland decorated with dried fungi and silver balls adds color and lushness to the striking glass-paneled front door all winter long, while two urns overflowing with evergreens creates a symmetrical look for the front steps. To make similar urns, fill an urn with dirt and layer a variety of boughs, starting with Cedar and Douglas fir, then adding eucalyptus, ilex berries and magnolia. Branches are inserted into the centre of the urns to add dramatic height to the arrangement.

Use your beachcombing finds to trim the tree or front door, or even decorate wrapped gifts. Tie shells into place with floral wire and, if necessary, supplement your fragile finds with items purchased at shell shops. Attach a large sea star to the top of the wreath instead of a bow for a statement-making front door. Coastal Living
My Notting Hill….. gorgeous yet simple holiday decor in Beacon Hill
Don't overlook the backyard as a scenic spot for adding holiday sparkle. Dusted with snow and decorated with evergreens, outdoor tables and chairs transform into artful still lives. Arrange furniture to encourage open-air mingling when the weather allows, then trim patio doors with garlands strung with white lights. Complete the scene by dressing up footed antique urns: Layer cedar, pine and seeded eucalyptus boughs with small tree lights and top with ornaments for simple shimmer.
