The Home Depot Style Challenge
About a month and a half ago, Steph and I got together here in Charlotte to execute our plans for The Home Depot Style Challenge, which we’d been invited to participate in over the summer.
Here’s how it worked: The Home Depot shipped us a bunch of cool holiday-themed stuff and gave us the assignment of DIY-ing a holiday wreath, and styling the surrounding space. Head over to Beckham + Belle’s post on The Home Depot Blog for more on the DIY!

Setting Up Our Home Depot Style Challenge Shoot
We actually set up our holiday ‘scene’ on my back patio. Since Christmas in the Carolinas is often pretty mild (I’m originally from Canada, so it’s all relative…), it’s not unusual to end up sitting outside on Christmas day. So Steph and I thought it would be fun to style an outdoor living room, complete with a comfy blankets, DIY plaid pillows, lights and a hot cocoa & snack bar. Super cozy.
It took us a while to figure out all the steps, and we messed up once or twice but I’m confident that if we had to make another one, we could really knock it out quickly!
