That doesn't mean they ignore the holidays; they will often add subtle, simple and often natural seasonal touches. I understand this desire to have a quiet, unadorned space.
My personal tasteI am a middle of the road kind of gal when it comes to the final layers in decorating. I create variety by moving around my favourite things; you never know what will be where.

However, I do give a nod to holidays and seasons by adding in a few special touches to celebrate.
