There is a very intricate way to making the home feel like the holidays in style. Every woman has her own way of doing things to make the house feel magical. Of course, we wanted to know from one of our favorite interior designers, Kelly Nutt, how she makes the home feel like Christmas.

Christmas Eve is traditionally our big night we have a big dinner and open a few gifts. We all get new Pjs and go to midnight mass.

I love fresh greens and paper whites.

Gorgeous wreath on the front door and white lights.

Nest Christmas candle is yummy!
