the 2017 Lily & Val Holiday Collection - "All is Calm" inspired by coziness, natural elements, and sweet, sweet simplicity

It’s HERE! Friends, this is probably the launch I’ve been most excited for all year. I’m thrilled to present to you the “All is Calm Holiday Collection 2017.”

Black and white Christmas Decor for neutral, modern spaces this holiday season

I will be honest. So far, 2017 for Lily & Val has been a whirlwind. We’ve experienced some wonderful highs and exciting growth, but that hasn’t come without its lows, intense pressure, trial and error, and mountains of work. The realities of running a small business often make my head spin. In this season of my life, what I’m craving most is slow. I’m craving simplicity.

When it came time to design the 2017 holiday collection, the pull of my heart was to create something to encapsulate this concept – a refreshment, a breath of fresh air.  “All is Calm” –  I couldn’t shake those words. It’s the opposite of what I was feeling, but it’s what I desire and hope for all of you this holiday season and beyond.

In the designs, I turned to natural elements and their simplistic, comforting beauty. Trading bells, whistles, and glitz for cozy, minimalist, striking, and raw.

Here are just a few of the designs you will find in the collection! All prints are also available as an L&V Canvas!

White Christmas

You’re sitting in a snow-covered cottage, sipping hot chocolate with extra marshmallows on top. There’s no reason to go outside, because you have everything you need right here—loved ones, a full heart, and a piping-hot cup of cocoa, of course. Revel in that nostalgic Dutch Christmas feel with this dusty, wintry print that will complete your winter wonderland with all the coziness of a chunky, cable-knit blanket.

Family is forever. Inspired by traditional family crests, this unique painting is a piece to be treasured. With soft greens and a partridge in a pear tree, it’s a fresh take on the date circled in red on the calendars of so many. We hope it helps you savor this season that brings us all closer together, no matter how near or far family lives.

Let Heaven & Nature Sing

We think Charlie Brown said it best: “It’s not what’s under the Christmas tree that matters, it’s who’s around it.” What’s not to love about the sweetness of this joyful, woodland print encouraging us to appreciate nature’s simple pleasures? A must for Charlie Brown fans and holiday cheermeisters alike, keep this bright and airy piece somewhere you can see it when you need to smile.

A Thrill of Hope

This design makes a bold statement deserving of such a declaration of hope. It’s easy to see darkness in the world around us, but through the dark – through times of uncertainty and unrest – Christmas brings hope. The weary world rejoices, indeed.
