Heaux. Heaux. Heaux. {Chateau Lapeyre}

Only in South Louisiana would one sweat profusely when putting up Christmas decorations. On Friday, I had the privilege to decorate my sister and BIL's new home in shorts and a light t-shirt. Starting from scratch is always fun for me.




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.

  1. Thank you for sharing this gorgeous tree. My grandmother was A. Hayes Town's secretary at one point. She was so proud of that.

  8. This tree is beautiful and I trust she loves it! The colors you chose are very pretty and I love the bows. The mantel is beautiful. I have a standing reindeer I'm featuring in the center of my mantel this year (which isn't done). I'll have to visit your other feature post! Your sister's home is beautiful- love the classic touches- especially those doors. The wreaths are perfect!

  9. Absolutely love her house! Your work looks beautiful. I'm doing almost all red and green this year! I think it's the first time I've ever actually gone with those two together as the main colors! I'm loving it.

  11. Good morning, Ron! Colette's house is beautiful--I remember when you did a blog post when they moved in earlier this year and you were "itching" to decorate it. She and her hubby are lucky to have their "personal" interior decorator. I love all of the live garland on the outside of the house and the classic red and green as well as the inside. That tree is gorgeous--so elegant and classy. I wish you were my neighbor! Looking forward to seeing more of "Chateau Perrier" all decked in its Christmas splendor! Hopefully, I can hook up with you and J during the holidays and have a couple of cocktails in the parlor! (We sure haven't been successful since we bought our condo in the Garden District two years ago! :( ) Have a great day! xoxo

  13. This house is an absolute dream, my all-time favorite style. The exterior holiday greens and red ribbon is perfect. The tree is lovely, too, but I guess I am a bit like your sister, in that I like reds and greens as well although I have done it different ways over the years.

  14. How did you hang the greenery above the French doors?
