10 Pins for Holiday Inspiration

We’ve spent a few dozen hours this week on one of our favorite sites, Pinterest. For those of you who aren’t familiar with Pinterest, Pinterest is a mecca for all things beautiful and creative. Pinners, as we like to call them, pin images into categorical boards, curating their own online collections of ideas. On our Pinterest, you’ll find collections like D I N I N G, where Food brings everyone together, and M I N I M A L I S M, where things are just as simple as Sam. It’s an opportunity to get creative, and imaginary. It’s also the best source for inspiration. A massive catalog of objects; a way to showoff one’s tastes; a way to think about the future; Pinterest is our favorite place to share with you how we see the world through design.

This Wednesday, we’re sharing our top ten favorite pins from our Pinterest board of M E R R Y.

All things merry for the holidays!

I’m in love with this black metal candle holder. Pine accents and wax candles make a beautiful centerpiece. Looking at this, I feel like this is the only thing that I need in life right now.

And I could escape to this little white village in Nowhereland, and be cozy, and warm and eternally happy.
