Excuse me for the cheesy title (obvious ways, yes I know) but sometimes things are better kept basic. There are million of ways to decorate a room for Christmas in a unique sort of way but sometimes a classic approach goes a long way. So I'm sticking with classics yet I pick a not so typical room to decorate; the kitchen. Do you decorate your kitchen for the holidays? To tell you the truth, I don't, for it is a rather small and dark room in my home to beautify. And you know what? I am most certainly wrong cause a room gives out the amount of love you put in, multiplied by hundreds. Walk in a pretty decorated space and you find your soul lift up.
Chances are you spend a considerable amount of time in the kitchen during the holidays, cooking and preparing all the delicacies to go with the spirit. So why not make this room a happy place to be? Here are the 3 most obvious things to start with, right after the jump.

I'm apparently gravitating towards rustic decorations this year and this post and that one are here to prove it. Whenever I'm browsing the net for holiday beauties to share with you, I keep clicking/liking/pinning things to do with unrefined woods, leather textiles, knitted goodies, handmade winter supplies and such. Well, you can see what I'm talking about right in this post. A twigs wreath, a cowhide, pinecones and burlap are most welcome in my place these days. Now, if only my place were a small cozy cabin in the forest like this one ^^ What do you think? Would you pick a rustic decorative theme for this Christmas?

I've always wanted to make a post full of cuteness. Everytime I'm on Etsy I come across so many sweeter than sweet creations that I squeak every single time. I've posted a few on facebook now and then but not quite felt it was a proper fit for a decor based blog like My Paradissi. Well, now I do have an excuse; holidays are coming friends! Some of these plush dolls are made for young children, some are meant for decorative purposes; in any case they are too adorable to miss and a gift that will put a smile on every face, even the grumpiest one ;)
