It is almost time for turkey, pumpkin pie, and egg nog.  Can you believe it?!  We are closing in on the holiday season, friends, and it is a great time to keep your eyes peeled for fun pieces that can become part of your holiday decor and tablescapes. Before you can start collecting take some time to figure out who you want to be this holiday.  For some of you this may be obvious.  Maybe your are hollywood regency through and through and this style is clear throughout your home.  Perhaps some of you enjoy taking a bit of a departure from your everyday decor during the holidays or when you throw a sweet soiree.  Either way having a general direction in mind will keep your eye focused when you hit the antique markets, thrift stores, or ebay!

This concept certainly has a feminine edge so make sure you’ve got a nice scotch handy for the boys in your life! Think the softer side of holiday colors if you want to go pretty to the max.  Soft pink and minty greens and muted gold accents.  Balance out these soft tones with deep burgundy, deep jewel toned teals, and warm leathery browns.  Bring in some soft texture with these sweet throw pillows.  Chose pieces that whisper ladylike.  Beautiful crystal barware and a lace inspired table runner will do the trick.

Is sleek and clean where you like to hang your hat?  Keep your party modern and chic with lots of black and white with hints of metallic.  This look is a great place to mix those metallics.  Keep layering and patterns minimal and let the repetition of black and white and textures lead the way.  I LOVE a good white out when it comes to holiday styling!

I just love the easy “I woke up like this” feeling of a bohemian home.  This look feels as though it has been collected over a lifetime.  To achieve this look you can not shy away from color and pattern.  Layer, layer, and layer some more!  Be sure you have an easy going organic element.  Keep arrangements light hearted and not over worked.

 


TREND: Demijohn bottles as singular statements.

The dining room above gets a boost from an interesting sconce and chandelier, but most of the focus is drawn to the spray of pink blossoms in a large, blue demijohn. Take that centerpiece away, and the room falls flat. It seems people have been drawn to these small-necked, large-bottomed glass vessels as standalone design statements with increasing frequency over the past few seasons. The oversized scale is appealing, and the transparency of glass allows them to take up a lot of space in a room without overwhelming it. If you’re drawn to the look, you can achieve it with the similar items below. And don’t forget a couple of flowering branches or long-stemmed blooms to complete the look!

  1. Claire Chandelier, Ballard Designs
  2. Multi Mirror Star Wall Sconce, Shades of Light
  3. Vintage Paper Chandelier Shade, Shades of Light
  4. Threshold Demijohn Blue Vase, Target
  5. Claire de Lune Cane Arm Chair, Wayfair
  6. Caprice Pedestal Table, Ballard Designs
  7. Dusty Miller Paint, Glidden
