+This year at the White House, the holiday theme is all about "Joy to All," featuring 54 trees and patriotic wreaths paying tribute to our Armed Forces and their families. Want a tour by the First Pup? Well, Curbed has it for you.

+The Perot Museum of Nature and Science opens tomorrow in Dallas, Texas. You have to see the architecture, designed by Morphosis over on Archinect!

+Want to see how an old water tower was turned into an incredibly cool modern home? Well, head over to My Modern Met for the scoop.

+This year, if you aren't buying furniture or lighting (wink, wink) as gifts, then head over to Etsy and give business to artisans while you gift the ones you love with something special.
