After moving from his home in Kansas, Mike opted for a more carefree, downsized design where color and company felt welcome. “Muddy shoes? No problem. I chose what I consider ‘lighthearted’ décor when I moved here,” he says. “I wanted to get outside the box and simplify…simplify. I wanted this space to be inviting, and I feel I’ve really achieved that.”
To minimize Christmas clutter, Mike suggests selecting only items that bring you true joy. The sweet St. Nick in this wagon, for example, was handmade for him by a friend more than 30 years ago.
