My Christmas Home 2016


Hello Everyone! Today I am thrilled to be sharing my home all decked out for Christmas with each of you. If you are visiting here from, Jennifer Rizzo Designs, WELCOME! I am so glad you are here. 


A big thanks to Decor Gold Designs and Randi Garrett Design for asking me to be part of their "Deck the Halls Christmas Home Tour." Be sure to check out all the other talented participants at the end of my post. You won't want to miss all of their gorgeous Christmas spaces. 

Now, on to my tour!


As you can see, I kept my color scheme and overall design pretty similar to last year's Christmas decor. I normally really change things up, but I loved it so much last year, I decided I should enjoy it for one more Christmas. :) 

The biggest change is that I added some natural greenery this year. I love the combination of the my flocked tree and garland and the fresh cedar garlands in my home. The smell of the fresh cedar is to die for and the brightness and texture it adds to the space is really beautiful!


I changed up my mantel from last year by using this cascading garland, which I bought a few years ago. I wanted a flocked garland, and since it wasn't I decided to flock it myself. I used this flocking kit. It was super easy, and I love the end result.

I kept the decor in my tree relatively the same, but this year I added some beautiful aqua glittered ribbon. I love the way it shines when the lights are on. 


My dining area is adjacent to my living room, so I continued my Christmas decor into that area by tying some sweet iced wreaths to the back of my dining chairs with some sating ribbon.


A tiered glass jar, some pretty mercury glass candlesticks and some more fresh greens adorn the center of my dining table.







Thank you for visiting my Christmas home! Next, be sure to head over to see the gorgeous Christmas living room of the talented duo of CC and Mike, at CC and Mike Creative. :) I promise, it will not disappoint! Also, check out the full list of participants, below. Happy Holidays!

The Foxtrotter One Project: Family Room

I am excited to be sharing the first reveal from the Foxtrotter One Project. This new construction was project was completed earlier this year. I was privileged enough to design this home from construction through completion. The homeowners are a darling family of 7, who have been friends for many years. They trusted me completely throughout the process and gave me full control of the design of the exterior and interior of their home. The family room area is a grand space. This room is 20' x 20' in size and has a 2 story height ceiling. We added floor to ceiling trim work on one wall to add some interest and dimension to the expansive room. The ceiling also sports 12' painted beams. The homeowners wanted this to be a gathering place in their home, where their family could come together free from distraction. Consequently, the television was left out of this space. :) I designed this space to have optimal seating and plenty of table area to play boardgames, cards, etc. The sofas are 108" in length and the coffee tables are 48" squares. I added bit color to the mostly neutral palette of the room. The result is a space that can be enjoyed by parents and kids alike. 












I hope you enjoyed the first of the reveals from this project. Stay tuned for more.
