Merry Minimalist 

This holiday season can tend to be all about colors and frills, but that doesn’t mean deviating from your signature minimalist look. Incorporate the festive feel of the season by adding subtle yet striking elements to your spaces. A splash of one holiday color—like yellow—can work wonders! Create a warm welcoming feel for your guests in your foyer by adding pops of this color along with more versatile decorative pieces like candles, instead of the usual seasonal décor.
