Ultimate Holiday Style


The countdown is on and there are only eighteen decorating days left until Christmas! Fortunately, we have some of the most fabulous inspiration photos to put the finishing touches on any decor scheme.


 The super chic Bronson van Wyck is a master at making the holidays come to life in ultimate style.


Decking the Halls!

Christmas Mantles

Elegant Classy
Get inspired, festive friends!

Santa is coming down the chimney in a matter of days, and, if you’re like us, you want to make sure that mantle is in great shape when he does!

You know us: We completely adore simplicity in decor. And nothing is fresher or more festive than plain, pine roping…
Mix and Chic
Or some stunning metallics!

But, if there’s any time to go over the top, it’s the holidays!

Country Living
What we love about holiday decorations these days is that there are the perfect decorations for any interior. White-washed, cozy, a tiny bit rustic…

Or upscale and elegant…
Every hall can be decked to blend seamlessly with the rest of the home!

Why relegate the bows to the packages? Everything’s better when it’s wrapped!

And to make that mantle extra, super special, you need a really eye-catching, one-of-a-kind accessory, right?

We are FREAKING OUT over Kendall Boggs’ gorgeous new line of bottles, Grace 11:11. 

We want one for every, single person on our Christmas list — including ourselves, clearly. (Truth: Especially ourselves!)

The story behind the line is even more amazing. Warning: It will leave you a little teary — but with that warm, fuzzy, Christmas miracle feeling.

Are they not so beautiful? To find out how to get your own treasure, visit Kendall’s blog, or contact Ferrari Fine Art.
Love to you all this holiday season! Take a few minutes today to relax by the fire. You deserve it!

Monday Musings: Tardy Tree Trimming

December 12, i.e. 13 days ’til Christmas. By this point, my Christmas decorations have normally been up for two weeks. Baby Will and I were out of town at Mom and Dad’s all week last week, though, which put us a little behind. Fortunately, someone is prepared for Santa’s arrival. Please check out the comparison here.
        Mom’s Living Room:

Stockings hung beautifully in a row, waiting patiently for candy.

Greenery and berries lovingly cut and arranged. 
Christmas tree up, lights and ornaments in place. Presents beautifully wrapped and organized under the tree.
My Living Room: 
  So, no, I may not have decorated my mantle, switched out my candlesticks or done holiday flowers. But please notice the trio of feather trees in the right hand corner.

This window is the spot where my Christmas tree should be. On the bright side, most of my presents are purchased, wrapped and ready to go once the tree arrives.

 Again, no signs that the holidays are here. All I can say is thank heaven we’re having Christmas at Mom and Dad’s house.

Mom’s Library:

She has feather trees too. Somehow hers look a little more festive…
           I am in love with the birds, feathers and gold hydrangeas. 

My Library:
Yup. Not a stitch of Christmas. If it wasn’t for my new little angel napping in the corner right now (In his stroller, by the way, which is the only place he will currently consent to napping.) the reindeer might just keep flying right over our house.
I was going to take pictures of the front of our houses too but was afraid you would judge me. But I guess, in the interest of full disclosure, I should just say it: Not only do I not have Christmas decorations up, but the pumpkins and now very dead mums are still out. Shameful.
By tonight, seriously, this place is going to be a winter wonderland… Stay tuned…
