The new home is in the style of A. Hayes Town. It is very Southern with many French touches. The details of the custom home are outstanding. I hope to show you more of the inside later.
My sister is very understated and likes classic design, so the outside features cedar garlands and wreaths with simple red ribbons. You really cannot top the look of greenery and red bows.
My sister is the one in my family who is partial to traditional Christmas decorating. After all, she wanted all of our childhood ornaments and collections. I think of that as "junk". She really had a hard time getting out of her comfort zone of the typical and classic green and red Christmas. Her living area does not accept the traditional reds and greens easily. She required a more formal look.
We decided on a tree featuring burnished golds and silvers with touches of champagnes and a pop of turquoise. I really love the touch of turquoise in the living area. I want to add peacock feathers too.
|A tree skirt will be added. I informed my sister to get a drop cloth.|
I also love the men's fabric ribbons.
The mantle is decked in live mixed green garland and atop sits a glittered white deer. Two silver deer head hurricanes complete the look.
|The mirrors are finally hung!!! No decision on an art piece yet. I have a Carol Hallock in mind.|
Even the staircase railings feature live garlands and needlepoint stockings.
Thanks to my elves, J and Laurie, who helped make the experience an easier one. And I was not too bossy (I hope!).
|Notice Jeff with his mimosa.|
