faces out to Kelly’s garden area, and she effortlessly layers in her holiday touches with a red-and-white gingham checked throw, a red tree with faux berries and a few vintage Santa postcards. “I sit here and drink my coffee and watch the yellow finches,” she says. “I also enjoy it at night and have a remote switch to turn on the twinkle lights outside, and during the holidays, I have two lighted Christmas trees outside!” To expand the sense of space, Kelly placed a mirror above her bed. “It reflects the light from my sliding glass door entry and makes everything feel bigger,” she says. She also gives this space a dose of holiday cheer by layering in Christmas pillows atop her everyday ones.
