This holiday trend was inspired by firewood – the art of cutting, gathering and storing logs can be so beautiful.
The textiles of the holiday season make me want to stay inside all day! I could live in stacks and stacks of wool and flannel.
But mostly this trend was inspired by nature and all the amazing creatures that live within it.
Here are some of our products inspired by the Into the Wild trend!

Getting the kids involved in Holiday decorating can be a fun bonding experience for the family. The challenge though can be creating décor that both you and the kids love. For our Merry and Bright Holiday trend, we went with bright and fun colors that will fill your home with a happy, festive feeling. The products are influenced by Scandinavian design, a modern and fun way to celebrate the Holidays.
The colors can range from a brights and metallics to more traditional red and green, but updated in a more modern way:
A rainbow palette looks best paired in a neutral setting. This clean, Nordic room is a perfect backdrop for some Merry and Bright décor:
In addition to white, tan or beige look great paired with a rainbow palette:
Look for modern Fair Isle and Otomi patterns that are bold and graphic for an unexpected twist:
Try it yourself!

I have always loved changing up my son’s room. However at 5 years of age I have to tread a bit more carefully on the design process when it comes to his space. When he was younger I styled his room according to my taste level but at almost five years of age he knows what he loves and with two creative parents he has inherited a love for decor.
When my husband decided to change up our apartment he took what was my son’s room and playroom and made this into our new living room space, and what was our living room (confused yet?) into a part kid’s room/part office for my work. This is typical of New Yorkers, we often have to either move out for more space or re-work what we have. This meant we have a somewhat shared space and I wanted both areas to feel cohesive.
This meant for my boy’s bedroom makeover I wanted pieces that were stylish yet went with my taste level. This is where The Land of Nod comes in. I found the perfect pieces that not only work with my son’s personality they melded perfectly with his established favorites that he has had since he was a baby.
The items we added, such as the gold dot sheet set, have just the right about of whimsical, as my son loves shiny metallic things. He has quite the superhero collection and I felt that the sheets are a great balance to having all these characters to a room.
The grey chambray bedding and honeycomb wall shelf have been a stylish way to tone down a busy boy’s room. Since we live in railroad apartment having these neutral (but not boring!) pieces help the apartment flow together style wise rather then cut off with different decor scenarios.
The pièce de résistance is the pillows. I have always incorporated horses into his décor and the equestrian horse throw pillow will one-day end up in my office. The shield throw pillow is just the right amount of blue I wanted to bring onto his bed. My boy absolutely adores them and he loves to snuggle into them when I read him his favorite bedtime books. This little nook is exactly what I envisioned. A space that felt like it belongs to an energetic boy yet will grow right along with my little dreamer and his satisfied mama.
