Holiday Wish Lists

holiday wish list (c)
Tis the season for decking the halls, blasting Christmas music, and (best of all) gift giving season! We believe gift giving never goes out of style---especially at Christmas time. To inspire your gifting this year, here's what the brightly decorated life team has on on the top of their wish lists! 
 "On the top of my wishlist this year is a new pair of brown riding boots (sadly, the pair I wore constantly for 4 years needs to be retired), and the Cheat the Rules print! "--Antonia
"I'm really eyeing a new DSLR camera, some Beats headphones, and the Llama Drama EH phone case! I prefer to get a few larger, useful gifts that I know will be used often."--Victoria 
"The items on top of my list are a DSLR camera, the Evelyn Henson "Sleep in" mug, and the "Always Carry Peonies" print!"-Lauren
"This year, I am dying to get a custom Evelyn Henson map print of my trip to Italy. A map illustration of my trip will be a colorful way to brightly decorate my room with some of my favorite memories from Italy. I can’t wait to go home for the holiday season and munch on some peppermint bark!!"-Anna
 "I'm hoping santa will bring me either one of the new Evelyn Henson phone cases for my new iphone 6 (i'm absolutely obsessed with the adventurer one and the brightly decorated one!) and all the travel prints!!"--Shannon
"On my wish list this year: Sorel snow boots, CB Station Hunter Green Monogrammed Sunshine Satchel, and of course, an Evelyn Henson painting!"--Caroline
"A few things at the top of my wishlist this year are an extra warm-long-ever lasting jacket, super duper warm boots, and an Evelyn Henson journal!  In January I will be traveling to Vienna to study abroad for the semester and these things will become essentials!  Hopefully the jacket and boots will keep me warm enough to write all my adventures in my journal... hopefully."--Eleanor
"My wishlist is pretty consistent every year. There is always a pair of shoes and a purse. This year the purse is a Rebecca Minkoff bucket tote that was part of the Nordstrom anniversary sale. The shoes have yet to be seen. I'm in the market for some black riding boots. I have to say, the ultimate gift would be the Coming Up Roses painting from Evelyn Henson. My house is practically begging for it. It is so wonderful to have original art in a home, and so special to anyone. This painting in particular is the one for me. "--Amanda

Brightly Decorated Life Girls: Rule Breaker Katharine Hepburn

From the desk of brightly decorated life girl Katharine Hepburn // (C)


1. As an actress, Hepburn often played strong and sophisticated females.

2. Her unconventional lifestyle, strong personality, and refusal to play into Hollywood's rules created new possibilites for the modern woman.

3. Hepburn knew how to make an entrance. By wearing pants instead of skirts, she eventually made trousers fashionable for women. #trendsetter

4. A graduate of Bryn Mawr College, Hepburn had intelligence in spades. 

5. Her ambitious spirit and hard work won her four Academy Awards.
