Holiday decorating and Interior Design... Winchester, MA

Sorry for the lack of posts.... hard to believe Thanksgiving was over two weeks ago! I've been busy wrapping up various clients projects and also been keeping extra busy with holiday decorating! It's been so much fun decorating for the holidays for current clients and for some new clients as well. Last week, I snapped a couple pictures of some holiday planters I designed and a mailbox I decorated for a new client.

I love the way fresh cut greenery can add so much warmth to a front entry! The dark blue/green of the fir looks especially nice with the beautiful wood front door. The holly berries add a pop of color and the leaves add nice texture. I used tall twigs in the center and spray painted them gold for some added height and drama.

I used pine roping on the mailbox post and then wired in fresh holly branches and gold berries for color and texture.

I also wanted to share some pictures of the beautiful stockings that my husbands grandmother knits for all her children, grandchildren, great grandchildren, and all spouses. We've had ours for a few years now but I don't think I've ever shared a picture. I was able to choose which stocking I wanted from a pattern book that she has and I knew right away when I saw the beautiful stiching, white yarn, and ruffled top on this stocking that it would be the one! I look forward to hanging them every year and I even had my husband build me a faux fireplace so I would have somewhere to display them!

Here's an idea for displaying all those Christmas cards that start arriving in the mail right about now. Just go outside and cut some smooth branches, put them in a jar and then use wire or ribbon to hang each card when it comes in the mail. So much better then letting them sit in a pile somewhere!

How do you like to display your cards?
