Perfect Holiday Decorations with Dovecote!

At Dovecote, we’ve got a little something for everyone. No matter your taste, it’s guaranteed to be good taste! Choose from an assortment of seasonal decor, from beautiful glittery birds to precious mini snow-covered house ornaments surrounded by delicate trees. Here are some of our favorite ways to “fa-la-la” in love with the spirit of decorating!

Have someone in your life who you just couldn’t live without? Tell them with a sparkly anchor ornament, perfect for newlyweds!

Do you have a fishing buddy with whom you spend every other weekend? We’ve got a whole themed tree ready for them with our fisher cat, tackle basket and bobber trinkets.

We also love the idea of using ornaments with simple brown paper and twine for all your gifts! These little chairs add a fun pop of color and act as an additional gift that your recipient can use again and again.

Everyone knows that person who has the immaculately decorated home for the holidays – the perfect tree, the mantle adorned just so and the candles that aren’t too “fake” smelling. The same person who wraps their presents perfectly, even when it’s simple brown paper.

Now, you can be that person!

Don’t forget to check out our gift guide series throughout this month. We’ll feature gifts for everyone on your list this year! 

Happy Holidays from Dovecote!

Here are a few pieces special for the frequent-fliers on your list. We adore just about anything from Alicia Adams Alpaca, especially their travel throws. Although they... Full Post >

Transformation Tuesday

Today we've fully embraced the season. Though most of the leaves have come and gone, we are still so very fond of orange. We've taken a plain tee shirt and jeans and spiced it up with a chocolate and orange color palette. We've kept the clean straight leg with our pant, shown here in the Keesha style from Equestrian Designs and replaced the tee with a luxurious silk and cashmere blend v-neck sweater from Magaschoni. We just adore this lively orange; it brightens up the whole face in such a... Full Post >
