Dreaming of a Beach Cottage Christmas

With my parents still living in their beach home conveniently located across the street from the beautiful beach in Carlsbad, I am fortunate to have a refuge from the unbearably frigid east coast winters each Christmas. While the decor is continually changing in my home, I was pleasantly surprised to see the quirky decorations my mom displayed this year. Ditching the traditional reds and greens of Christmas, my crafty mom chose a neutral seashell palette accented in hot pinks, aqua, and blues to create the perfect beach cottage shabby chic appeal. I must have gotten my style sense from her!
