When Cait Pappas and her husband Jason bought their first house, they knew it needed a lot of TLC to make it feel lived in, loved, and like their own. They began remodeling and redecorating, and that process led to the creation of their interior styling and photography company, Nest Out West. They now help others “turn their blank white boxes of homes into family dwellings that are not only functional, but also stylish, warm, and full of character.” The company’s beautiful website details their process and services of collaborating with clients, both in the local Colorado area and e-styling for those outside the area, to create functional and personal spaces in Modern Farmhouse, Mid Century, Bohemian, Rustic, and even Scandinavian decor designs.

Cait also chronicles her  skilled decorating ideas and talents on her gorgeous Instagram page, which is bursting with lovely photos of her clean, modern style. Her look is bright and airy, and she uses neutral palettes of greys and whites with pattern, texture, interesting objects, and pops of color to create interest. 

This past holiday season, Cait chose our handmade fresh Cedar Garland to frame the entryway of her stunning dining room. The addition of lush greenery to showcase Cait’s elegant gathering space is a stunning display of nature adding the perfect touch of beauty to the indoors, especially during the winter holidays. Cait Pappas Check out Cait’s Instagram post about it here! We love the simple, elegant statement the Christmas Cedar Garland makes as a lively greeting of holiday cheer around the arched doorway. She also draped fresh Cedar Garland over the fireplace mantel to create the ultimate cozy, Christmas space in the living room. Cait shows how easy it can be to transform a blank space to create warmth and character. Get the same fragrant 18’ Cedar Garland for your own home here and send us a photo of how you decorated with it! This classic Christmas garland is handmade with fresh western red cedar sustainably harvested here in the Pacific Northwest and can be hung indoors or outdoors throughout the holiday season. We also offer beautiful evergreen wreaths and centerpieces that perfectly compliment the Cedar Garland. For example, our simple and natural Three Cedars Wreath is handmade with three different types of cedar and is a long time customer favorite. We hope you are thinking about holiday decorating and are as inspired by Cait’s ideas as we are!
