Our team enjoys decorating several of our client’s homes for the holidays. It was hard to think of a more beautiful space than this room we designed to elegantly incorporate some antiques, which were reupholstered and reinvigorated—surrounded by the most stunning hand-painted wallpaper the wraps the room in one pastoral scene. Our challenge was to match the easy elegance of the space with Christmas decorations that spoke perfectly to the furnishing and architecture. We used heaps of magnolia garland and wreaths, simple beeswax candles, the homeowner’s collection of Spode in combination with Italian dishware with a woodland motif, plaid and velvet ribbon, glass ornaments, crystal garland, candlesticks, and stemware. It’s the perfect harmony of interior decor and festive, elegant Christmas. It’s a timeless approach that would feel welcoming and warm for generations of family.
