Interior Decor Gift Guide, 3 Ways

Mr. Kate Advent Calendar Day 3: Give the Gift of Great Decor!

In case you hadn't noticed — I really love decorating homes. The ongoing makeover of my home has been chronicled in OMG We Bought A House and in the many DIYs I've done over the years, and my passion for working on other people's homes has seen in Breaking Beige and Mister Sister, among others. So it should come as little surprise that when it's time for me to buy holiday gifts, I tend to go for ... you guessed it, home decor.

Another thing that comes with decorating a lot of homes is a strong love of vignettes. This design technique gathers items into a layered and multi-functional setting - think books, pictures, and knick knacks on a shelf. They're amazing fun to put together, and add such a professional look to your space.

So, when I sat down to plan a gift guide for this year's Advent Calendar, the direction was obvious! Home decor gift vignettes! What's great about these is how customizable they are to the person you want to give them to. I kept mine with lots of whites, metallics, and natural elements, because that is my design style, but for your friend or mom, they could be colorful and kooky!

Watch how I assemble the vignettes in the video above, and check out all the details of the looks down below!
