What Houzz contributors are saying:
12. Simplify. There are so many ways to bring focus to a windowless sink. One of the simplest is to tile the wall behind the sink to the ceiling and just leave it blank. No cabinet, no shelf, no anything … well, maybe a simple wreath, as in this photo, or a piece of art. Whatever you decide, the beauty of this blank-slate solution is that you can change the look whenever the mood strikes. That’s really what good design is all about: It’s always evolving.More: Dishwasher vs. Hand-Washing Debate Finally Solved — Sort Of
The saying that less is more is perfectly in play here. One boxwood wreath sporting a golden ribbon brings a kitchen into the holiday season.
11. Go on a holiday home tour. Most holiday home tours are run by local historical societies — look in your local paper for happenings in your area. This time of year is often the only time some of the loveliest historic homes are open to the public, and fully decorated for the holidays at that! Going on a holiday home tour is a great way to get into the holiday spirit … and maybe get some ideas for your own home.Tell us: What’s on your to-do list for December?More December home tips
