We’ve been busy the past few weeks! Between balancing kids and client projects, we’ve been getting our own homes ready for the Christmas season. Before we dive into parties, shopping and cozy family time, we want to share our personal holiday styles with you.
Keri’s family room is all about comfort and family memories. Fluffy pillows and blankets are on hand for Christmas morning lounging. Washable slipcovers are perfect for three kids and a large lovable Goldendoodle. The fresh cut tree was purchased from the local Boy Scout troop. It’s trimmed with ornaments made by her kids and purchased on family vacations. Ornaments that belonged to her Grandmother also have a special place on the tree.
Fresh pine rope wrapped with white lights brightens up the mantel. Moss and wood trees from Target add texture and height.
Red pottery, pine rope and a poinsettia from Trader Joe’s dress up this wicker tray. A boxwood wreath hangs from a festive ribbon on the inside of the window.
Seasonal botanicals fill the dining room. A whimsical painted reindeer from Homegoods hangs on the mirror.
The centerpiece features a winter mix bouquet, pine rope and small poinsettias. Cranberry garland gives the pendant a vibrant pop of color.
In the living room, Keri opted for metallic colors and organic texture. Her mantel includes mercury glass vases, a silver-sprayed bouquet and pine rope with twinkle lights.
Amanda’s tree was also purchased from local Boy Scouts. Its height is perfect for her family room’s vaulted ceilings. She trimmed it with shades of green, white and gold.
The metallic beads were a gift from Amanda’s mom, given to her the year she got married. They add sparkle and shimmer to the tree. Peacock feather ribbon, owls and birds create a unified theme.
Amanda wrapped her family’s presents in shiny gold paper with green and burlap bows. Reindeer gift tags add a bit of fun.
Chalkboard reindeer stocking holders from Wisteria display family names.
Amanda added greenery and lights to her dining room mantel. To change things up, she swapped out artwork from another room and hung a boxwood wreath.These gold honeycomb hurricanes were an inexpensive find. They reflect light and anchor the ends of the mantel. Amanda found the ikat fabric ribbon at Michael’s last summer. She stashed it away with the holidays in mind.
Using large Macrame rings, Amanda created wreaths with live greenery and clip on candles. The effect extends the simple mantel display to include the room’s two sconces.
We hope you enjoyed this sneak peek into our holiday-ready homes. A big THANK YOU to our clients for making 2016 a fabulous year. Happy holidays and cheers to 2017!
Merry Design Dreams,
Keri & Amanda
