Our Florentine-Inspired 2017 Christmas Tree

I wasn't sure we were going to get it done, but we just finished decorating our tree.

Check out the tree skirt.  Yep, that's my faux fur coat that I grabbed from the closet.  I've used vintage fur stoles, table runners and sequined jackets under my trees too.

I would call this year's tree florentine-inspired.

The rhinestone garland reminds me of vintage belts.

The pearl sunburst is double sided and very heavy.

The sage green velvet ribbon has rows of rhinestones.  I wove the ribbon vertically through the tree.  For me, it's easier than wrapping it around the tree horizontally.

I left the Versace poster in place.  Underneath the poster I centered my deconstructed foot stool from my living room.  I put my over-sized books on to the foot stool and added a lamp base, some magnolia and a florentine print on an easel.  Of course I couldn't help but let the tree decor overflow on to the foot stool.

I was surprised with the unexpected sparkle the lights cast on the poster.

Notice the outline of the lamp base in the background.

I even replaced my MCM mirror with this vintage Italian beauty.

Wishing everyone a very wonderful holiday season.
