Once Thanksgiving day has come and gone you know Christmas is truly almost here, but time seems to slip away faster as your gift buying, baking & to do list grows longer. There’s so much more you want to be busy with than pulling everything out to decorate so you can all bask in the glitzy Christmas wonderland. My client was ecstatic to have her whole family together on her favorite holiday for the first time in over 5 years! So, I quickly channeled my inner Elf and to work I went on creating a cozy space for all of them to enjoy.
Collecting holiday decorations over the years through travels, fun finds and family heirlooms can be both heartwarming and overwhelming. It was fun choosing the items with my client that held the most meaning and importance to her so that we could truly display all the sweet memories & stories they hold.
The history that oozed from this one area was unbelievable! I loved the rare antique Christmas decor that was handed down from my client’s mother alongside some of her re purposed vintage perfume bottle holders that now held candles. I can just imagine this room being filled with the sounds of the childrens giggles as they wind up the musical boxes that are amidst their ancestors photos.
Now wouldn’t you just love to enjoy a cup of coffee here after a nice meal with your family?! My client was a pleasure to work as a team with and by the end of our time together she truly felt like family! Excited for the memories she and her family will be creating in this glitzy Christmas wonderland I had the pleasure of sprucing up.
