Realistic faux roses and elegant ribbon are the finishing touches that make this home absolutely magical! Join me as we tour this lovely home that is all dressed and ready for Christmas!
A Mighty Welcome
From the moment you turn down the winding driveway surrounded by thick woods, you are embraced by the beauty of nature all around. This natural beauty is carried right onto the facade of this brick and stome home with full garlands, fir wreaths, and urns loaded with magnolia. That same natural beauty is carried into the entry way with real pine garlands draped all over the curving banisters. Elegant ribbon and non-breakable balls add color and richness to the garlands and add movement to the design.
Musical Moments and Divine Dining
Off of the entry way to your left is a lovely music room that is accented with pops of red roses and berries, layers of fresh greenery, and musical note ribbon for a slight nod to the music theme. A simple drape of garland around the porch door softens the room and completes the look while the bookcases come alive with pops of red roses and berries.
To your right is the formal dining room that is accented with touches of silver and gold in addition to the real greenery garland. Crystal icicles drip off of the chandelier and an elegant crystal bowl is filled with artificial florals to form a lovely centerpiece that will last all season long.
A Lovely Living Room
Once you have made it through the entry, past the music room and dining room, it is time to enjoy the formal living room and all it’s grandeur. This room’s soaring ceilings are accentuated with a fresh fir-tree and an oversized mirror decked out with a festive wreath. The real greenery and magnlia touches are carried onto the mantle piece and into the tree decor to tie the entire design together from the outside all the way through the indoor decor.
Rich golds, festive reds, and natural greens all combine with twinkling lights to create a room that comes alive with the magic of Chrismtas. A custom centerpiece ties the room together by combining all of the colors and elements found in the rest of the room into one central design. The Christmas tree features ornate balls, regal angels, and magnolia leaves and red roses tucked into its branches. The mantle finishes off the room with garlands laden with gilded hydrangea flowers, magnolia leaves, faux roses, and lots of lights draped from floor to floor.
All in all, this magnificent home combines the best of nature with the elegance of ribbons, silks, and bows to create a Christmas look that is classic and timeless.
