When decorating our homes, we each have our own distinct styles, and we carry these styles through when decorating for the holidays as well. We each have our own “side” or way of doing things, which makes us unique. When designing “side by side” our two styles compliment each other. 
T Side (Tami): This year I decided to do all my holiday wrapping in not-so-simple black and white. The white snowflake detail on the black and white paper adds a fun Winter touch.
Using only two colors is fun when you add different patterns and textures. I mixed velvet flocked wrapping paper, with toile printed tissue paper, and fun black and white flowers to achieve this look.

I looked all over for white snowflake tags and ended up making them myself out of leftover white on white snowflake wrapping paper, a black pen, and some festive glitter. This DIY project turned out just as I imagined. 

My home is ready for the holidays now that I have finished wrapping all my gifts. This silver tub proved to be the perfect place to hold the gifts that didn’t fit on my small fireplace hearth.

 L Side (Lauren): My holiday decorating style this year consisted of a mix of rustic elements with a touch of glamour. To achieve this look in my gift wrapping, I used a variety of wrapping paper styles that you wouldn’t think would go together but seemed to mesh nicely; craft paper, wood grain printed wrapping paper, and metallic gold and silver prints.
Mixing in over-sized metallic ribbons and rustic pine cones finishes off the design.
I created round tags using a circle cutter and the various wrapping papers, mixing prints on each package. Some gifts have the names written directly on the wrapping paper in silver sharpie instead.  
As you can see we each have our own style when it comes to decorating. When decorating your space for the holidays, which “side” do you relate to most? Happy Holidays!
